~BIRTHDAY WEEK~

Another year has come and gone and I've once again had a wonderful BIRTHDAY WEEK!!! It started off on Monday, having cheesecake with my FAB-U-LOUS friends, Waveney, Rachael and Taffney. I seriously don't know what I'd do without these ladies!
Then on Tuesday night, we had another Girls' Night...and we went bowling. Oh MY!!!....I hadn't been bowling in probably a decade. But we had some great laughs and a really enjoyable time. I've truly been blessed with wonderful friends here in Louisville. It's definitely going to be hard to say goodbye!
This is what I woke up to the morning of my actual birthday! Kevin had gotten up early and gone to Kroger to get flowers before I even woke up! Impressive, huh!!! What a sweetie I have!
Later that day, my lovely friend, Brinn, organized a picnic at the park in my honor! Thanks Brinn, it was just what I needed and thanks to all those who came! (Oh and yes, I AM 32, but Brinn couldn't find the other single candle so I'll just pretend to be 31 for another year!! ;-))
It was such a beautiful day. We had a great time and the girls were in heaven. Alexa had so many little friends to play with and Payton got to play in the grass for the first time. She was a little hesitant to begin with but soon was crawling all over!
Oh how I love my girls! They were so well-behaved on my big day...
the best birthday present ever!!!
Kevin had school all day on Thursday and then even had to work that night so we celebrated on Friday and he made me a delicious steak dinner for lunch. Sesame teriyaki steak, cheesy smashed potatoes, asparagus and cheesecake! Mmmmmmmm....it was sooooo good!
Thanks babe!
After nap time, we took the girls to the park as it really feels like Spring has arrived and we just can't handle being indoors any longer! As you can see, Alexa was in heaven once again! She's going to love having a backyard of her very own!!
And to top off my birthday week...I chopped my hair off this morning! I had been growing my hair out for 3 years and it was finally time for a change. What do you think???!!!
Thanks again to all those who made my birthday so fabulous! I'll try not to be sad that I have to wait a whole year to celebrate again!!! :-) I guess I'll just start preparing for Kevin's birthday next month...I already have his present which I'm soooo excited about but shhhhhh, don't tell him!!!
****
'Til next year...
