I Am Completely Overwhelmed...

By how blessed I am in the family and friends department!! Guys, I could just cry at how lucky I am! Yesterday was my birthday..24 years..wow, so old (yeah, yeah, I know..I'm still a baby)! Unfortunately, Jeff had to be out of town in sunny Miami for work..and I know he feels just awful about it. But babe, honestly, I understand and it doesn't bother or upset me one little bit!! And of course, Jeff being Jeff, he STILL found a way to spoil me from across the country..more on that in a sec.

SO, to start off, I got phone calls from EVERYONE..my sis-in-law (thanks Heather..I'm sorry I didn't answer my phone!), my mom, my dad, my bro..my parent-in-laws..PHEW! And more than one person posting on MySpace. Kami, my wonderful friend, took me to breakfast at The Original Pancake House..YUMMY!! And then we went to my favorite little boutique, Got Beauty, and proceeded to 'get glam' w/ every available eye shadow, lip gloss and bottle of glitter in the place! We looked SASSY by the time we got done!

When I got home, my bouncing doggy and 100 beautiful sweetheart roses (the cute little, good smelling ones) greeted me! Jeff, always looking for ways to make me feel more and more spoiled, sent them to me..and I just about cried! (ok, I DID cry..). Babe-a-roo, I know you're going to read this, so I'll say what I can't say enough: I couldn't have found someone more perfect for me than you! You're my sunshine and I love you!

I then got to go to lunch with my sister and mom. They are my best friends..I mean, how can the two people who went through every up, down, and sideways moment in my life and were there for me every second, not be? I love you guys SO much!

But wait! I still got to go to dinner with 'mah girlzzz', Cheryl and Jen (Wendy, we missed you!!) (Just so y'all know..I didn't pay for a single meal yesterday!) We laughed & cackled through an entire dinner and then went and trolled the mall like 3 teenage chicks! I always know I will have a hilariously wonderful time with these 2..I'm sure we scandalized quite a few people while we were talking in the parking lot of TGI Fridays!! Just a reminder, Cheryl...in 2 weeks...;) haha!

And just as I was winding down, I pulled into my garage..and there were two guys standing behind the driveway holding a cake! My very kind neighbors, Kenner and Jake, baked me a cake! Which we promptly ate, after they sang me a rousing 'Happy Birthday'! (They claimed they'd been practicing all night).

So, that was a long post..and it can't even begin to convey how loved and spoiled all of you made me feel yesterday! THANK YOU SO MUCH!! There really aren't words to explain..I am truly so, SO incredibly blessed to have the most amazing husband, a wonderful family, and 'totally tubular' friends!
