Here's a few pictures of some if the sweetness which was bestowed upon me on this glorious day:My BFF Amanda sent me this great arrangement from Baton Rouge, LA.!
Nathan accidently popped one of my balloons! So this sad flat one laying on my dining table actually should be flying with the others! That's ok though. My sister and Kaitlyn stopped by this morning wth balloons, cheesecake, cards and goodness!! =) I love me some balloons! A birthday isn't a birthday without balloons and blow of candles, right? Well I guess 1 out of 2 isn't so bad right? I got the balloons but I never actually got to make a wish and blow out my birthday candles. =( Yes, this makes me sad but it's not for lack of trying. After my day I met my mother and Wayne for dinner at Zio's. It was great (as usual- but way to much food)! They told the waiter it was my birthday and he brought this very dense chocolate/truffle cake- alamode. The cake was a little too dark and truffle-y for my taste but the ice cream saved it. BUT no candle!
After dinner I had plans with my friend Amy. We decided on going to a movie she checked the times and said either 730 or 855. Well 730 came and went and I hadn't heard from her (I texted and called). Then 8 o'clock came and went so I figured I'd been stood up, ON MY BIRTHDAY!! I was crushed! That only lasted about 15 minutes, when she text messaged me and said she was planning on the 855 show. At first I did think, "huh... you left me hanging." But life happens and I would prefer to get my ass off the couch and go to this movie than have "Stood up" forever plastered in my mind for how this birthday ended! So we met and saw "Ghosts of Girlfriend something" I don't remember the title but you guys know which one I'm talking about! It was exactly what you thought it would be, but all the same it was enjoyable and lighthearted!
I even got to talk to Kevin! Thankfully- he was supposed to be rolling out for another mission... thankfully the mission was delayed for one reason or another so I actually got to speak with my hubby!! We didn't think it was going to work out. But I know that he loves me even if he doesn't or isn't given the opportunity to say it and I know he's thinking of me even when he can't be here! I love him and I'm blessed to have him in my life!
Babe: I know that you wanted to be here, but it is what it is right? Missed birthdays and things are just apart of the gig! I Love you all the same. I don't blame or resent you for it! Thank you so much for a fantast and ABSOLUTELY PERFECT day! Your presence was the only thing missing from my day. I love you so much. Talk to you soon!
So ladies that is all from me for today. It was a great birthday (minus candles and all)! =)
