Birthday Festivities

How does time go by so fast? I mean really…I don’t feel like I’m 32. I honestly feel like I’m still in my 20’s.

Anyway, last night we celebrated my birthday! We weren’t able to celebrate tonight because I have church and am the director of the Wednesday night girls program. We are having awards/promotions to new classes/end of the year parties tonight so that’s something I don’t want to miss!

32nd Birthday

Yesterday, my husband came home with “day before my birthday flowers”. He’s so sweet (when he wants to be)! :D

32nd Birthday (3)

We also had dinner with my parents at one of my favorite restaurants, O’Charleys!

32nd Birthday (7)

After dinner, we returned to my house for cake and presents! This cake is AMAZING. It’s definitely a favorite of mine – I think I’ve had it the past 4 or 5 years in a row!

32nd Birthday (2)

How am I 32…and why is fire that close to my face?

32nd Birthday (6)

Chocolate cake with peanut butter icing and a scoop of Blue Bell homemade vanilla. So. Delicious.

We had a great time with my parents! :)

32nd Birthday (5)

Present time!

32nd Birthday (10)

Jason SURPRISED me with an iPad Mini! (He’s been telling me that the NSYNC CD he bought a few weeks ago was my bday gift…I knew better, but I sure didn’t know he purchased an iPad for me!)

32nd Birthday (8)

To top it off, my parents bought a cute Otterbox to match! Now I’m all set!

I’m going to begin today with a Starbucks run (can we say TWO stars!?), then I’m headed off to work!

I hope everyone has a great day!

Have you ever been surprised on your birthday? If so, what was your favorite birthday surprise? I would have to link mine back to my 27th birthday when my best friend literally threw me a surprise birthday party and I had NO IDEA.

  7. I'm 42 and I still feel like I'm in my twenties. Age is only negative when you're looking up. When you look back down you realize very little changes in terms of the person you are. Happy Birthday!
