A Celebration

How to celebrate your birthday when you are 39+ weeks pregnant:

1. Go to Disneyland the day before.
Load up on birthday wishes from dozens of strangers and bask in the happy atmosphere.
2. After sleeping in on the big day, head to the gym for a little run/waddle.
3. Come home to a delicious brunch in the freshly-decked-out-by-Matt dining room.
Matt got up early to decorate. Such a fun surprise to wake up to!
4. Soak up some sun and enjoy weightless playtime at the pool.
5. Watch college football ... all day long!
6. Enjoy Matt's expert grilling for dinner.
7. Party! Bring out the cake, make a wish and blow out birthday candles.
8. Welcome your family to the party via Skype. Laugh at the babies and their silly cuteness.
9. Open birthday presents (that can hopefully be used in the near-ish future).
Matt gifted me a post-baby shopping spree. My dad teased that he'll only make that "fill in the blank" mistake once!
10. Cuddle up on the couch with cake and ice cream.
11. Take a picture with the baby bump, of course!
12. Go into labor.

Just kidding about that last one. But it would have been crazy, right?


  1. Happy Birthday!! Looks like you had a fabulous time celebrating :)

  2. Sounds like a perfect birthday celebration.
    1- you run while 39 weeks prego??? go you!!! :)
    2- love that you have an endless amount of $$ for a post baby shopping spree
    3- that confetti cake looks delicious and is totally my all time favorite :)
    4- you are such a cute pregnant lady...cant wait to see the little guy :)

  3. First, I freaked for just a second when I read #12... then took a breath and realized you were kidding... and read below that this was the case. Haha!
    I'm glad you had a great birthday, girl! *muah*

  4. Happy birthday!!! You look so adorable it's not even funny...though I don't know why it would be haha. And totally random but I like the shelves in your dining room haha, very cute! I can't believe your 39weeks, time has flown by so quickly it's scary. And I hope #12 happens soon for you...I CANNOT wait to see your handsome baby!

  5. I know I'm being redundant when I say, that I just love you! haha Your birthday celebration seemed so wonderful! I am so glad you had an amazing day! Now it's safe for baby to come. Tell him I say to come on Saturday okay? :) Though he should already remember this. Oh and I love seeing the running pictures. You look amazing!

  6. I check your blog every day waiting to see if you've had your baby boy! Hope you had a wonderful birthday, looks like you did!

  7. Looks like you had a great birthday! Thats so awesome that you run when your 39+ weeks pregnant!

  8. What a great birthday celebration! Look like you had a very happy birthday :) Loved the pics, thank for showing and sharing your fun birthday adventure with us!! :)

  9. So glad that you had such a wonderful day! I'm so excited for you two to become parents!!

  10. Happy birthday! I may be a rockstar for working so close to my due date but I think you are an even bigger rock star for being able to still run....wow.

    I really hope your baby boy decides to come soon so your not sitting around like me waiting...waiting...waiting...
    Hopefully you don't go past your due date but it would make me feel much better about things. ha ha.
    You look great by the way. I have to say, we make pregnancy look really good.

  11. What a perfect day! I love the whole shopping spree idea for your birthday - I did that after both kids! Totally helps in the body recovery stage! Anyway, I hear by now there is good news to be had, so congrats!!! Hope you're feeling well. Can't wait to see pictures!

  12. Oh my gosh that cake looks so good! Also the whole day sounds just perfect!

    And every post you've done lately I've expected it to be the "baby is born" post, so you had me going there with the "and then I went into labor" comment.

    But from what I hear, you did go into labor and baby boy is already here! Congratulations! I can't wait to see pictures of him!

  13. Oh and, i love that you still were running up until the end of the pregnancy. I have no doubt that that's why your labor and delivery went so quickly! I heard you went natural and were already at a 10 when you got to the hospital! Awesome awesome.

  14. Happy Birthday to you
    Happy Birthday to you
    Happy Birthday dear Ashley
    Happy Birthday to you

    I love You Ashley, Matty the Matt I love you to
