After all the hype and paranoia settled a bit, I concluded that I wasn't going to let a gloomy, rainy and strange Monday ruin my whole birthday.
My mom cooked a fabulous dinner and a couple of my friends came over to celebrate with us. Mallory brought me balloons and a beautiful sunflower. She is precious. Katie bought me a beautiful picture frame, which I love and we had a great time just laughing and talking. We had hoped that Katie would have baby Lily, so the two of us could share a birthday but alas, no. She is just taking her sweet ole time in there as Katie is now overdue 6 days. Could be anytime now! Super exciting!
Here are some pictures from Friday night when I celebrated with my Mema and from last night...
My sisters and I eagerly awaiting our dinner at the The Fish House on Friday night.
This gloriousness is called Grits-a-ya-ya and if you like Shrimp and grits then you're bound to love it! It's a total southern dish and my absolute favorite entree there. So delicious!
My Mema and I (The Birthday girls)!
Papa and I
These were from last night...
Mallory and I!
I love sunflowers!
Heaven on a platter. Chocolate covered strawberries are one of my most favorite things! My mom is truly an angel.
This is the best cake that could possibly ever touch your lips. My mother seriously is the most amazing cook and she's quite the artist!
Katie and I! (My el prego friend...although you wouldn't know it from the picture! She has gained NO weight anywhere but her belly. Blessed lady!)
So there you have it. My birthday in a nutshell.
P.S. Thanks to all of you who have e-mailed me with your info! I appreciate you taking the time to do so. I haven't made my decision yet, but in case I do decide to go private at any given time, I will be sure to put you on my "preferred" list.
Thank you for the Birthday lovin' as well!
