Getting older!

Hey y'all!  I guess I'm living up to my older years now.  I have completely let time go by without telling you about my birthday.  Well, I guess I am getting older!  YUCK!  It's really just a number, right and of course, you are only as old as you feel.  Not sure I want to think about that either!  HA!  

I had a fabulous birthday day and weekend!  We spent the part of the day at Pullen Park.  A super nice park near us that has recently been renovated and updated with lots of new features. 

The weather couldn't have been more perfect!  We had a great time riding the carousel, the train, and Mason rode the boats.

After a fun time at the park, we went to the State Farmers Market Restaurant. If you live in the area or are just passing through, you must have lunch here!  YUMM-O!  Country style!  

I even had a little girls night out and went to a jewelry party.  Something about women getting together, laughing and eating.  We had a good ole' time!  They were so thoughtful too!  Had a little cookie cake that was yummy!

With my birthday money (thanks Nina and Papa), I ordered myself a watch! 

Afford to stay on time with a Just Jewelry watch! 

Super cute watches (and jewelry) and super affordable too!  I'm excited to see the watch in person.  I ordered the 'Time To Go' watch, but I really like all of them!   If you are interested in more information or just want to look through the catalog, you can contact Kristin here.

I also got money for new walking/running shoes (more like walking for me) HA!  Grammy and PawPaw gave me new jammies and a monogrammed laptop sleeve.  

My wonderful and talented husband (along with my baby boy), made me some shelves that I have been admiring from Pottery Barn.  He did a great job imitating their work and of course, for a ton cheaper!

Here are pottery barn's shelves:

And here are the ones Kevin made:

I am very pleased with the way they turned out.  He did a great job!  Thanks Babe!  

On Sunday, Grammy, PawPaw, Uncle James, and Lori came over to our house and brought a spaghetti dinner!  Mom (Grammy) also made me a delicious carrot cake, at my request.  So good!  We had a great time eating, talking, and riding Mason's bike.  Yep! For some reason, we all felt it necessary to ride his bike.  I was laughing so hard.  The things we get into are hilarious sometimes! 

Uncle James and Kevin's faces were priceless!  I couldn't stop laughing!  

Lori, of course, fit on his bike perfectly!

Thanks to all of my friends and family who made my birthday a little extra special!  I had a great one and hope to have many, many more! Thank You!

Thanks for the shout out, Michelle! I am jealous of those shelves, your husband did an amazing job, they look just like the original!
