Birthday Fun!

This past weekend was wonderful!  (Also, we've entered the stage where we look everywhere but actually at the camera.  Oh well!)

David got off work a little early and we headed to Charlotte for my birthday weekend!  My actual birthday is today (yay!), and since it wasn't on a weekend and some of my family has to travel (me included!), we had my family birthday dinner on Saturday!

My grandmother usually makes the birthday dinners, but her and my grandfather were invited to see the GA Tech basketball game with friends and couldn't pass up that opportunity.  We missed them, but my Aunt Diane made my request: spaghetti and meatballs.  My mom made the cornbread and ordered the birthday cake!  My cousins Scott and Amy came in from out of town and Amy's boyfriend Tyler was there, too.  I always love spending time with this group of people, even when it's not my birthday! :)

I got lots of great gifts!  I got some gift cards for some of my favorite stores and my mom is giving me a few free pairs of shorts because, let's face it, I'm not fitting into my old shorts after having a baby!  And now that warmer weather is starting to trickle into town, I need something cooler to wear!  I also got some Pottery Barn sheets for our bed.  Y'all.  Heaven.  They are so soft!  They've already been washed and we slept on them last night.  I got a gift card to Amazon, and a panini press!  I guess David was tired of washing multiple pans for one sandwich. ;)  My grandparents also gave me a super cute shirt and sweater.  I'll have to model that this week!

And one of my favorite gifts?
A wand.  

You read that right, muggles.  This Harry Potter fan got a wand!  It's actually a wand remote.  (Did you see this episode of The Big Bang?  Howard and Raj are playing with the wand remote at the beginning of the episode.)  I can now turn the tv on and change the channel with just a flick of my wrist!  And I'm positive my invitation to Hogwarts will be arriving in the mail any day now.  I know it got lost in the mail when I was eleven....

As far as my actual birthday-- today has been wonderful.  I woke up to my beautiful daughter's smiling face, we met David for lunch, and she's been napping in my arms this afternoon.  Tonight we are having my favorite steak and salad meal.

Twenty-six was an amazing year for me...I hope twenty-seven is ready to give 26 a run for its money! Happy Monday, friends!
