Here is a photo recap of what I did to celebrate. Let's face it photos are more fun then me boring you with the details.
Dinner at Bar Lola with my favorite things - sangria and good girlfriends!!! Thanks to Emily M, Lynne, Noelle, Katelyn, Missy, Kate and Emily W for celebrating with me and treating me to dinner!
Blueberry ravioli tapas. . .
Amazing birthday dessert. . .
Annual "bunny photo" day with my nieces which is one of my favorite traditions (professional photos to come soon). . .
We also had lunch, ice cream and of course selfies!
More family time with my SIL and mom for her church women's group brunch. . .
Finally saw the movie Frozen with its biggest fan, Ella. She knows every word and told me "this is my favorite part" about 5 times!
Neely watched with us too but every time I stopped patting her she got bored and would be bad and take one of my mom's Easter decorations in her mouth. I had to keep taking them from her! That is the collection she brought me. Ha!
Family Dinner/Favorite Meal (I always request chicken casserole and a Carvel ice cream cake).
Presents! I got some money which is going towards my Italy vacation. I also got a few necklaces. Top one is from my mom (she got it at a craft fair in FL), middle one is my "necklace club" necklace from Caroline G. and bottom one is a gift from Kate and Emily from Lou Lou. I can't wait to wear them!
Thank you to everyone for the birthday cards, emails, FB messages, etc. It really makes a girl feel loved! Oh and I don't feel a day over 28! Ha!
P.S. I had been on antibiotics over 48 hours by the time I did all this stuff. I was so sick for the first 2 days of strep but then SO much better once the meds kicked in. Thankfully I was still able to have a wonderful birthday weekend!!!!
