My 24th Birthday

Yesterday was my 24th birthday and it was a blessed one at that! I am so thankful to God for another year of life. I had SO many people wish me a happy birthday and it made me feel so loved! Here's a recap of my day yesterday:

First, I woke up and came downstairs to see this ...

An adorable chihuahua card

... and a beautiful white gold necklace

Then we went to lunch at Hot Rod's '50s Diner. Hi, Brad!

Birthday girl! :-)

I got a salmon burger with sweet potato fries

Brad got a house club with sweet potato fries

What birthday is complete without Starbucks? Yum!

Later on we went bowling. Here are a few pictures of us ...

I found this picture of me from 3/24/10 and compared it to today

My jaw dropped! I could totally see a huge difference. WOW!

Brad won the first game ...

BUT, I won the second :-D

Then we went and picked up some delicious BBQ for dinner.

Once we got home, we rested for an hour or so and then hit the gym. Can I just say, you know you are serious when you go to the gym on your birthday!

That about sums it up. I had a great day. :o)


  1. Awww, that DOES sound like an awesome birthday--and yes, a you are one serious lady. I have only started following your! But I'm proud of you, that's impressive.

    P.S. Ohmygoodness, I've also found another Starbucks junkie. I heart caramel too. :)

  2. Thanks for sharing your day. I feel like I was there with you.

    I have to laugh at Brad's face in the picture with his lunch. He's thinking, "Can't I just eat my lunch without you having to take a picture of me?" Awww, he's being patient and humoring you since it's your day. He loves you dearly!!

    I love you too!

  3. Happy Birthday! Sounds like you had a great day. I mean, what isn't a great day when it involves Starbucks?! =D

  4. The sweet potato fries look delicious! I heard Brad loves Ketchup, and there was not one drop on his plate. Maybe that explains the look on his face.

    There is a dramatic difference between your two pictures. I can definitely see you don't live by bread alone but by every Word that proceeds out of the mouth of God.

    Happy Birthday!

  5. Sounds like a great birthday. Having fun is the most important aspect to being happy.

  6. Happy Birthday! It does sound like you chose a sweet way to celebrate!
