Surprise!!

Today is my 30th birthday!!! Friday, one of my best friends, Amy(church Amy) planned a surprise party for me. She did such a great job. She had all my Amy's there as well as all the people from our old Bible study class, other church friends and my mom and mamaw. She even invited my brothers and in-laws but they couldn't make it. It was such a great time. I do not have pictures because I didn't have my camera because I thought I was going on a date with my husband while she watched my kids. Good guise. My mom took pictures so this weekend when she comes I will try to post some. I got great gifts too!!

I realize that top picture is not the best. I will give y'all a rundown. I got a super cute purse, pumpkin pods, a block with a birdhouse and it says Home Sweet Home, a cool mug from Starbucks and a Michaels giftcard(yay, because my husband is cutting my fun money), a picture frame, dish towels, one with the turkey cookie cutter like I gave Jenny for the Thanksgiving swap. I didn't get myself one because I was trying to be good. Also, I got some amazing potpourri, two Willow Tree angels, a Bath&Body Works lotion, sweet cards. My mom got me a cute outfit that I like, but it doesn't like me back. She also got me a Brighton key chain and a print from Marmee Craft. I love it, but I think I was in the minority that night. Jenny also sent me a super cute squirrel and acorn altered book page craft that I love, but forgot to take a picture of. You can see it on her and Emilie's MOMents website. Oh, my mamaw gave me money. Yay, I can go to the antique shop's Christmas open house Thursday!!
It was a great party and I had so much fun!! Thank you Amy and everyone else!! Love y'all!!
Okay, I'm off to enjoy a free burrito from Moe's and maybe a free blizzard from Dairy Queen. Tonight I fully intend to enjoy a free meal at Provino's and spend time with the family!! Hope you all enjoy my birthday, too!!

Happy Birthday Elise...Do you realize you are the same age as my Step kids? In fact my oldest step son is a year older then you.
I don't call them my step kids unless I am explaining their age. I've been "mom" since they were little kids.

You really got some wonderful gifts! Sounds like the perfect day!

Happy, Happy Birthday -- Miss Elise!
I'm so sorry that I missed telling you on time. I also missed your give-away. I wouldn't have guessed correctly, anyway (sticking a big L on my forehead!)

Sorry that your brothers couldn't make it to your surprise party -- but they might have just given you noogies all night (or is that MY brother that I'm thinking of?!?!)

Hope that you had a great birthday!
Many Blessings,
Julie
