Goodbye 35!

Tomorrow is my 36th birthday. I know, I know 36 is not old but man it feels soooo close to 40 and I'm so not ready to be 40!

We celebrated a day early because Kiley has drill team tomorrow night. Mom made dinner and Ryan and Megan (bro and SIL) came over. I am so blessed that for the ten years I have been a single Mom my Mom has taken the kids shopping for me and let them pick out bday, Christmas, and Mother's Day presents. It makes them feel special and of course I love it!!!!

Last year Tyson thought he would be funny and give me a joke gift. I asked for a watch this is what I got:
Ralph the watch dog! In case you can't tell he is a bronze dog on ski's. I was not amused. One year later and I can at least laugh about it ;0) This year they decided to play it safe and got me the Rachael Ray pots and pans I have been wanting and a new set of silverware. Smart kids! From Mom and Dean I got a Dillards gift card (will be saving to buy smaller clothes) and a DSW gift card from Ryan and Megan. I cleaned up!!!

On our birthday we always get to pick what we have for dinner so I went healthy.
Yummy chicken and steaks Kabobs Dean made on the grill. The pies pictured above are also low calorie. They are an oldie but goodie from when Mom and I went to Weight Watchers. Here is the recipe:

I am determined this will be my last overweight birthday EVER!!! I think this is part of the reason I am having such a hard time turning 36! I just don't want to be fat and 36. Enough of that! I am the only one that can do anything about it!!! Here are a few more pics from the evening!
Hope my wish comes true!

What a weirdo!!!

Kiley was sitting on a stool but I thought this looked so funny!
