I have been saving all my energy for celebrations this weekend, since I'm still sick - (though definitely better than I was the last time I updated you all). So today I'm just staying in my pjs - (I will brush my hair!) - and then my sister is picking up special dinner for us. The BFF and I have decided to go Olive Garden this year. We may even sit at the kitchen table to eat it! And we'll exchange gifts as well. Then, as you know, The Nephew turned 8 a week and a half ago, and what he wanted to do for his birthday was to see Godzilla. His dad is coming to town for a wedding tomorrow and he is going to leave The Nephew with us during that time. We are going to see the movie and then we have to take him to Target to pick up a baseball bat. I already got him a pitchback for his birthday - I loved mine when I was a kid. A bat though is something you really need to pick out for yourself, hold it and see how it feels in your hands. After that we are going to my mom's for chocolate-chocolate cake and for him to open his presents. He is very excited that this year he gets to celebrate his birthday with me and The BFF - (we are his two favorite aunts, after all).
It's a holiday weekend here, so The BFF is staying until Monday. On Sunday we may cookout- (I can stay in my pjs for that too, since it's just the three of us in the backyard). And The BFF and I are going to watch the last four episodes of Arrow - (I've been too sick to concentrate on it until now, but we are dying to know what happens!) On Monday, The BFF and my sister are going to see the new X-Men movie. I may go with them, depending on how I am feeling at that point. Tuesday, I intend to lay on the couch and watch baseball all day! And next week hopefully I can finally catch up comments. We shall see.

And a big Thank You to everyone who has already posted me birthday wishes or sent me a comment or ecard! The birthday love has been pouring in and it's been delightful! I hope you all have wonderful weekends!
