Thank you friends & family!

My birthday was this last Monday - yes, I am now on the countdown to 40! My celebration started out fun on Saturday night when my parents took my family out to my favorite - PF Changs - it was fun and delicious!
Saturday I also got a package in the mail and I love to get mail! My brother mailed me a cozy Penn State sweatshirt that I was wanting, since he will be leaving Pennsylvania and heading off to Laos this summer. It was nice to get fun mail!
Sunday morning my family made me a wonderful breakfast in bed and the kids even did the dishes! My kids blessed me with great cards and gifts they purchased with their own money from Target - great job guys!
Sunday evening my wonderful homegroup women - Kim, Julie, Ashley & Annette did a fun celebration. Ashley made me a great chocolate & raspberry cake - Yum! They also gave me a gift certificate for my hair salon - thanks girls!
Monday My Mom took me shopping for clothes and then out to lunch - we had a lot of fun!
Monday night my two dear friends - Vicky & Dawn- took me out for a special date. We had a quiet intimate dinner at one of their houses with dinner from Olive Garden.
We snuggled up under blankets and sat on the couch talking until 11 pm - it was great for my heart!
My Hubby was home waiting with a card & creme brulee ice cream! Yum!!
Thank you friends and family for a wonderful celebration - you blessed me a ton!
