I love bookish birthday gifts!

cupcakesMy birthday was yesterday and it was a great day. It doesn’t take much to make me happy on my birthday. My requirements are: quality time with my family and REALLY good cake. Everything else, including gifts, are just a bonus. My awesome husband always makes sure that my requirements are met and he comes through like a champ with the bonuses as well!

For years, I have been working out and running while listening to music on my ancient MP3 player and it has worked just fine. Now that I’m crazy about audiobooks, my favorite ear buds go on the fritz and the MP3 player decides it won’t turn on any more. I was really annoyed, especially since my player broke the day we were leaving for a road trip and I had downloaded three audios from the library just for this trip (for some strange reason, Overdrive won’t allow me to download audios to my phone).

Happily, the hubs and my two wonderful boys gifted me with a new iPod giftsNano/watch and new ear buds. I love the iPod and since it’s my new watch as well, I have been wearing it everywhere. I also love that it has a audiobook function and organizes them separately from my music. My old player just lumped the books together with the music so I would have to go hunting for the authors name or the individual tracks. I’ve already started listening to a book on the iPod and it sounds great! I’m sure I will be getting tons of use out of these gifts, especially after baby #3 makes her debut in December.

In case you are interested, the cupcakes pictured above are from Misha’s Cupcakes in South Miami. If you love fantastic, yummy cupcakes and are ever in Miami, you should stop by and pick up a few. They are so worth the calories and definitely qualify as REALLY good cake.

Happy late birthday, friend!!! And that watch is super cool. I saw somebody with that a few months ago, and I couldn't stop staring, thinking, 'What is this sorcery?!' lol

Sounds like you had a great birthday!! I'll have to look into that watch thing... I'm intrigued (and I'm curious where the ear bud cord goes while running....).
