I blogged about Chicago, which came the weekend following my birthday, but I didn't get to blog yet about my actual big day! The day turned out perfect, thanks to some great friends.

Here's what I woke up to:

What a fun birthday surprise! Warm muffins and hearts on your doorstep. Noah and I enjoyed them very much! (Thank You Julie)

Then, Jared took me to lunch at Olive Garden, where we had my favorite soup and salad.

Next, I had a little break until dinner at Las Palmas. Two of my favorite people took me here:
Julie & Andrea

We had a lot of fun. Noah got a little scared during the birthday singing.

Anyone who really knows me knows what a classic birthday shot this of me. Courtney in a sombrero eating Mexican food. Of course!

Later, at my house, Julie went to town decorating everything in my two favorite colors, green and purple. We had some people come over for cake and ice cream and just talked.

Julie made me my favorite cake: funfetti! And it was delicious. She even filled it with buttercream. Fancy smancy!

Wow, that's a lot of smoke!

I LOVE birthdays! Thank You to everyone who called and texted and emailed and mailed cards and gave presents and came over and made me feel so wonderful on October 13th!!!
