I had such a wonderful birthday this year! I never really feel older...I think I'm still waiting to feel mature, but I'm never quite there. I guess I'll take that because I am getting closer and closer to 30 and that just has such an "older" sounding ring to it.
I was so spoiled this year. The day started off with a text message saying I'd better be up, because my cute friend Mistie needed to drop something off. This is what she brought:
WOW...YUM! How sweet was that to bring me breakfast?!?!?! It was DIVINE
I spent the rest of the morning lounging and playing with the boys. Then my dearest BPF (Best Pal Forever) Nancy brought over lunch for me and the boys and we visited. She brought me the most DARLING purse and jewelry and totally spoiled me. I need to take a picture of this purse because it is seriously my favorite! She knows me so well.
Max went down for a nap and I just relaxed and didn't worry about doing anything. Next thing I know, I look outside and my front door has been decorated not once, but TWICE! This giant sign was from my cute neighbor boys I posted about in the last post.
And then my young women and Mistie (she's our Beehive advisor) Decorated my other door!
I got numerous other calls and gifts, but I thought it would be tacky to post a picture of my loot...even though I seriously appreciated all of it! My dad called me from St. George and Amy called from Cove Fort :) We have a joke between us where someone will call from somewhere are say, "Have you ever had a call from such and such place?" I can't remember if it started when I was calling from Spain or if it was when Keith would call them on our cruise? Suffice it to say, I have never had a brithday call from either of those places and was pleased as punch!
Then for the evening my mom and sister came to visit and brought Cafe Rio (that's right...people brought me food all day long...they REALLY know what I like!) And I got to spend the evening with these cute kids
We had Gavin take a picture of me and my sister, but neither one of us looked super cute in the pictures so I'll keep those to myself :)
The following day we had a baby shower for Mistie (can you see what a big part of my life this girl is?) and I was spoiled again by our sweet YW's presidency.
Then Keith and I went out that evening to my favorite-TUCANOS! And despite the 1 hour wait and it being Prom Night...I really enjoyed my night out! It's always so refreshing to get a night out alone with Keith. It doesn't happen often at all and I need to make it more of a priority. Then on Monday I was treated to lunch with my old Primary gals where we gabbed and gabbed and caught up. I love these woman and meant to have someone take a picture for me while we were there but forgot.
I've never really done a birthday post because I don't want it to seem like I'm bragging about how cool I am or everything I was spoiled with, but I just wanted to make sure that everyone who called, texted, sent me a fb message, visited knew HOW MUCH I LOVED and appreciated every moment of it. Thank you ALL for making my day so special!
