Today I am THANKFUL.........
As all my friends and family know yesterday was my 31st (WOW) birthday. I was kinda down since Mike was gone, he's TDY to Wyoming. When I got up I had the poor me thoughts, I know I know, there is so much worse going on in the world. However, in our house when it is your birthday it is YOUR day! So that is my justification.
Little did I know that my AWESOME friend Autumn and her wonderful husband Brad, as well as my sweet little Avery had a sweet surprise in mind. They greeted me at the door with a Happy Birthday, flowers, a present and the cutest bundt cake ever! It really was the best! Thank you guys so much! We are so blessed to have you in our lives!!
As the day went on I thought I would treat the boys to dinner, because back to the YOUR day rule--I don't cook on my birthday. However, our other wonderful friends the Villarreal's, plus Grandma, had dinner taken care of. I was once again greeted at the door with a Happy Birthday song, flowers, YUMMY Chicken Nachos and a German Chocolate cake! It was great. Thank you so much, Jesse, Tina, Clarissa, Nicholas and Grandma. Although Mike wasn't here each of you made my day special.
