Catching Up: My Birth-days

My birthday was a ton of fun this year. I turned 28 a week or so ago and boy do I feel it today! It's been a long, hot Friday full of grocery shopping, park playing and carpooling. But, that's a blog for another day. For now, I'll start my game of blog catchup with recapping my happy birthday.

Saturday...
Beause my mom and I share birthdays just days apart, we enjoyed a fun day of shopping to celebrate. We started in Brier Creek where we checked out Home Goods and snacked on my favorite cupcake from Gigi's. Then, after a yummy lunch at Pei Wei(another fave) we went to the mall and made a few other stops. I scored a super adorable dress at Loft, a floor lamp for the living room(finally) and more-it was a grand shopping adventure! Here are some insta-pics of the trip...
Sunday...
The next day after church, they boys and I went swimming with Poppi and then we all celebrated with cake and presents at my parent's house. Check out our rainbow cake! My mom has the good pictures on her camera, sooo TBP, as in "To Be Posted...." yes I just made that up. ;-)
Monday...
On the actual day of my birthday my dear friend Mandi and her daughter paid us a surprise visit complete with crafty gifts and a special birthday cupcake. It was so thoughtful of her and made me feel so special. That morning I also awoke to a special birthday banner(which bore a strange resemblance to Evan's backyardigans banner...cute) and some presents from my honey. I also have to note that the gifts from my husband were laid out in an adorable "baby's first Christmas" fashion. Not wrapped or ribboned but strategically laid out on the kitchen table. I say this not to poke fun, I really did think it was cute, and the memory of it even now makes me chuckle. If there was ever a doubt who wraps the presents in this house, put it to rest now lol!
I had a wonderful 28th birthday this year and am so thankful the many gifts, big and small, that we enjoy daily. A beautiful home, happy and healthy children, near and dear family, wonderful friends, a faithful church, new turquoise sandals...ahhh. Feeling blessed!
