Good Heaven, I'm 27!

Wow! Yesterday was so wonderful! All of my family and friends wished me Happy Birthday and it was so fun to hear from each and every one of them! The day started off great - my first bday being married! Brian let me open one present in the morning - it was a Vera Bradley wallet that I had wanted - and I love the print - he picked it out himself!

Then it was off to work - (I have decided that I think everybody should get their birthday off - it's only one day of the year!) So I went in and when I got there, my cube was decorated! So Fun! And before we left for lunch, I received a delivery of Chocolate Covered Strawberries from Edible Arrangements sent by Brian - he's the best!

Excuse the messy cube!

They are so delicious!

My co-workers and I went to Macaroni Grill for lunch! It was so fun getting to hang out with them. I'm so glad they came to celebrate with me!

My wonderful co-workers; Me and my good friend/co-worker Jodi whose last day is next week b/c she is having a baby boy! I will miss her!

After work, I headed home to meet my bff Julie so we could exchange gifts. They were leaving Royse City to go home to Wichita Falls so they stopped by on their way out so we could see each other. She also just bought a Ford Edge and Brian and I have been wanting one so we looked at it to see if we would like it - maybe we will both have Ford Edge's one day! We chatted with Julie and Aaron, exchanged gifts and they headed out - I'm so glad I got to see her, even if it was a quick visit!

Julie and Me - I'm squatting b/c I'm a little bit taller than her: Julie and her new Ford Edge!

For my birthday dinner, I chose Outback Steakhouse. I was just craving it for some reason. I had the Bloomin' Burger b/c it has onions from the Bloomin' Onion in the burger and the dipping sauce on the burger. It was so Yummy!

Outback was greatness - great birthday dinner with Brian!

After dinner, we headed home and I walked in and saw another birthday present! Brian had set it out before we left - he was the last out of the house so I didn't see him do it. It was a 32" flat screen TV for our bedroom! I was (and still am) soooo excited! I had been saying since we had a new TV in the living room, we needed one for the bedroom since I love laying in bed and watch TV! He hooked it up right then and it is so great! The TV that we did have in the bedroom was my TV from 2001 - it still has the VCR in it - it was time to move on!



Then, My parents came over for a little bit - my mom made me my favorite cake ever - yellow cake with Cream Cheese Icing. So simple but so good - she's made it for my birthday as long as I remember and I look forward to it every year! We played Monopoly Deal and the birthday girl won! Woo Hoo!

Gotta love cake!

It was an amazing day and thank you to all who wished me Happy Birthday - I truly appreciate it! Here's to 27!
