Happy birthday to me

So, one of the coolest things about my birthday dinner tonight?

Save the fact that it was my eleventy baziollionth 29th birthday.

My Grandma made me dinner.

From Colorado.

I know! Cool, right?

When she was here visiting, she made a bunch of beef brisket(my FAVORITE!) Trust me, if you had my Grandma's brisket, it would be your fave too. In true Grandma fashion, she bagged it all up and put it in the freezer for me. So, despite the fact that she is in Colorado, my Grandma made me my birthday dinner tonight.


How cool is that?!

Ronnie baked me a cake that Alannah decorated.


Each of the kids gave me a little something that they picked out and wrapped themselves. AND a handmade card!

Serious awwwwwwwwwww.

Zachary told his teacher 73 thousand times that today was his Momma's birthday. I know this because she was sweet enough to email and tell me so. And when I asked him about it tonight he said, "Yup, I sure did. Cause I am so proud of my Momma."

Let the big chorus of "Awwwwwwwwwwww" ensue.

I even got to wear a pink lei at dinner because Mandy informed me it was a birthday necklace and I needed to wear it. Her counts were beautiful yesterday and chemo went uneventfully. How's that for a great gift?!

I was a big pile of loved on Mommy mush shedding those little happy mommy tears. What more could I ask for?

But wait! There's more ... if you order right now you also receive a great lunch with some of the best friends a girl could ever ask for and another of those lunches promised for tomorrow, this time with my "adopted big brother" and one of my BFF's.

So far?

*29* is going pretty darn good.

Thanks everybody for making me feel so special and so loved. Don't know what I ever did to deserve it, but I will spend the rest of forever trying to be even half as good of a person as you think I am. I am not worthy, but thank you for pretending I am.

Love to all~
