Happy Birthday to me!

Last week I celebrated my 32nd birthday, surrounded by family and friends.

I just LOVE birthdays. I've never understood people who don't really enjoy celebrating. :)

My wonderful friend Beth decided that I need a girl's night for my birthday and invited this lovely group of ladies out to dinner and ice cream...we had a blast! It was so fun and refreshing to get out with the girls. There was much laughter!
And on my actual birthday, my incredible mother-in-law invited us to dinner at their house. When we showed up, I found that she had invited Jon and Kelly and family to join us, and she had decorated the table with balloons and all different colored napkins and things...it was a party! :)

Mary Beth served us a wonderful dinner and followed it up with this beautiful chocolate cake:
I felt so honored and loved on my birthday. What fun to have friends and family around to share in our celebrations of life!

Happy Late Birthday! Love the family photo uptop. Hope school is going well for you guys...we're getting in the groove..slowly. I hadn't thought about my age but I too will be 32 here in a few months. Time flies when you have so many kids, huh?
Have a great weekend.

Awesome! You look closer to 22 . . . and when you're 42 you'll really be thankful! : )

So glad you got to celebrate big!

glad you had a great birthday, your gift is still showing that it will ship no later than the 9th, keep your fingers crossed. It's crazy, I ordered it in plenty of time to get here, and evidently lots of other people decided to order at the same time.
