The 7th anniversary of my 29th birthday!
Ahhh... it was a great birthday!
I went to work, and a coworker brought me a HUGE cinnamon roll from the bakery across the street (I'm talking the size of a dinner plate). I promptly shared it w/ another friend! Another friend brought me a huge chocolate gourmet cupcake plus a bag full of chocolate candies that are a few of my favorites! Another friend made brownies (my favorite!) to share w/ the entire group at work!
My dear friend Liza bought me a huge balloon bouquet -- my first ever! Who would've thought that I'd get giddy over balloons?! I did!!
My dear friend Leisa has been making these delicious four layer cakes for years -- and I absolutely LOVE her cakes. This is the 3rd year she's made me a cake for my birthday! Love this woman!
Maddie wrote me a very cute letter -- can you read it? Isn't it cute?
Katie ... this is funny.... Katie found me a gift on Amazon. She said "I'm going to buy it". I thought "whatever... she's not going to get far". Well, she texts me at work and says "I found your gift on Amazon, and I'm going to order it." I didn't respond. Then, a few minutes later she texts again "Wait! How am I supposed to order this? I don't have a credit card!!" So, I asked her what it was (to make sure it was worth spending money on in the first place for shipping) -- and when she forwarded me the link, I totally agreed with her choice. I love Willow Tree!! I have the nativity set and 3 other figurines. I've given my girls Willow Tree figurines as well. We love them! However, I told her that we needed to check out the local stores first, b/c they would be the same price without shipping. That night, we found the one she wanted to give me, and I LOVE IT!!
Since Mike was out of town, I celebrated my birthday by going to the movies w/ Liza and our girls -- then a quick trip to Longhorn Cafe for some yummy burgers and a final trip of the night to my happy place! Target! It was overall a wonderful day! I'm so blessed with so many wonderful friends!
These two pictures of a quilt... I found at a garage sale today for $5.00 ... I was thinking of using them for photo shoots for families sitting on a blanket. It is unbelievably soft -- good deal? Is it cute enough for a photo shoot?
