My 28th Birthday Party!
On Monday I sort of threw together an impromptu ladies luncheon for my birthday on Friday. I printed cards, dropped them off at homes in my neighborhood and my family, and anticipated a day with loved ones. I made Cafe Rio Burritos with Cilantro dressing and a side of Strawberry Salsa with Cinnamon Sugar Chips (thanks Mel, Becky, and Kim for your generosity in sharing recipes). My sisters made me an awesome cake and icecream and we had a wonderful time catching up with everyone. Nate surprised me by taking the girls so I was able to sit down and visit. They went on a daddy daughter day outing and bought me some fun new clothes. It was one of those special days that everyone surprised me with gifts and so much love and kindness. It's hard to believe I have only known most of these ladies since July. I will forever treasure it because it really was that special. Thanks for celebrating with me!
Oh and Nate also took me out to the Importance of Being Ernest at Hale Theater and I just LOVED it! I didn't know anything about the play beforehand, but it was so fun!!!

Still smoking (should have known they were the trick kind), but we did find out our smoke alarm batteries had died.
