So this past Sunday was my birthday! I had such a good weekend with my sweet husband and some great friends. And I got to talk to my parents and siblings. More on that in a minute...
I think I must be getting old. I mean, I know I'm still young, but I remember the days when a birthday was a significant change in who we were! "No, I'm not seven, I'm EIGHT!" That's a big deal! I passed 21 and I don't think I have any more landmark birthdays until I get to be over the hill. How did that happen? Weird.
Anyway, on Saturday Aaron and I went out to dinner and we also bought me a new dress! It's so pretty! I don't have a picture of it yet, so that'll have to come later.
On my birthday, we had a bunch of people over (3 other couples) and had a murder mystery party! I had planned on taking pictures of everyone dressed up, but I completely forgot until after everyone was gone. Sad. But it was so much fun! It took place in the old west, and it was full of scandal, theft, and of course, murder. All of our characters were so quirky and exciting and we had such a good time trying to figure out who the murderer was. Turns out, I was the mastermind behind most of the crazy things that were going on. Awesome.
So I kinda cheated. I opened my presents the night before my birthday. Oops! I couldn't wait. My mom is awesome. She spent a lot of time and made me this GREAT pig wall hanging! After all, pigs are my favorite animal... (I'm secretly looking forward to having a baby girl so I can decorate her room with all my pig paraphernalia that's currently in a giant box at my parents' house...) This thing is awesome. Check out all the quilting detail!
My parents also gave me the best cookbook in the world, which is great because now I won't have to keep asking them to email me recipes from their copy! And a book of table runner patterns, because my mom knows that a table runner is one of the top projects on my list of things to make/do once I have time.
My in-laws sent me this cute bag that Karen made! It's so cute and I can't wait to start using it!
And I'm terrible. Aaron gave me these for my birthday, but I picked them out myself. I guess that's what happens when we do ALL of our shopping together. I didn't even give him a chance to pick something out himself. But he did buy me my awesome new dress that I don't have a picture of yet. Best husband ever.
Ok, so I just have to say that I have serious senioritis right now. Ugh. Less than five weeks (34 days) of classes left and I'm having a hard time staying motivated. Aaron's so good at helping me though. He stays up with me on my late nights and helps me de-stress on the weekends.
Only 43 days until I graduate!
