(Warning lots of pictures!)Last week was my 27th birthday. We celebrated a lot with family and friends. They are the best and made me feel so special. Here are some pictures from the night that both our parents came over and Nick, Meredith and Reese. We ate pizza and birthday cake (Shake's confetti cake-the best)! Meredith's Mom was able to join us to because she was in town helping Meredith and Nick unpack all their boxes from there move from Texas to here. I was glad I got to see her again.
A couple of months ago, I mentioned to my sis in law, Meredith, that I wanted to have a cute apron to cook in. Well, she remembered our conversation and bought me one for my birthday! It is from our favorite store Anthropologie and love it! It's almost too pretty to cook with but I'm sure I'll get plenty of use out of it (or at least Josh hopes so!). They also brought me a very cute monogrammed plate from of course...Anthropolgie. Thank you Meredith, Nick and Reese!
Another night we celebrated with the Kennedy's, Slaughter's and Neufeld's. Zach, Matt and I all have a birthday within 2 days of each other so every year we go out together and celebrate. This year we went to Abuelos and then back to the Kennedy's house and played the Wii. It was mine and Josh's first time on a Wii and we had a blast. Josh was awesome at it but I need a lot of help until I'm considered even half as good as my husband. It was still fun and we laughed a ton that night.
Thursday, McKale and Courtney took me out to lunch at Olive Garden for my my birthday. I don't have a a picture of that and I wish I did. O.G. tasted so good, especially the bread sticks. We had a good time just talking and enjoying our meal without the kids, minus Baby Tate who slept through our meal!
This weekend, Josh was gone to Tulsa for a coach's clinic so it left me here with the boys and a puppy. We were puppy sitting for the Barnard's and the kids LOVED having a dog around. He followed Peyton around the whole time and they became best buds. The dog that stayed with us is named Brownie so now he says we need a dog of our own named Cookie. However, it will probably be awhile. I think my sweet Mom would not be too happy since I'm known for getting an animal and then a year later passing it on to her and Dad. I've done that with 1 cat and 2 dogs already!
I'll leave you with a two more cute photos below of the boys that I couldn't resist posting. Have a good week!
