Yes, today is my birthday :)

I was born 24 years ago today. I'm officially old.

I thought I was going to have the worst birthday ever because all of my family is out of town... but it actually has turned out to be a great birthday!

My Mema took me and Josh to the local seafood restaurant to eat for my birthday last night. It was SO yummy. It's a new restaurant and I had not been there yet. I got oysters (steamed) and they were delish!

After dinner  my horse riding buddy and friend, Jaclyn, came over to have a slumber party for my birthday. She wrote "Happy Birthday Molly!" on the sidewalk where I park my car and had a present for me! I opened my precious card that she handmade herself (crafty little thing!). I must have taken a long time to read my card and then I asked her a question about the last sentence on my card... "Becareful what you pin..."  I said, huh?! did I pin something I wasn't supposed to!? What did I do?! Did I offend someone?! and she blurted out "Just open your present already!!" haha!

She had gotten me a pillow from Anthropologie that matches my room. I cried.

She saw that I posted it on pinterest.com and she got it for me! She is so thoughtful and made me feel like I was the most important person in the world!

I immediately went and made up my bed and put my pillow on there. I love it!

Josh was at my house too so we watched movies. Jaclyn had also gotten me a bottle of Bailey's (see, this girl is awesome!)! I'm not a big drinker... but I love me some Bailey's!

Josh left and Jaclyn and I stayed up talking like 12 year olds. I went to bed around 2:30 and before I knew it... it was 7:50 in the morning and my sweet boyfriend was coming into my room to tell me he was going to make breakfast for me!

When I got up, there were balloons all over the floor in front of my room! Jaclyn again!

We ate cinnamon rolls and talked about how yummy the middle cinnamon roll is and how everyone always fights over it. :)

Then Josh told me to stay put... that he'd be right back! I sat on the floor with Lola until he came back inside. He gave me my card and told me to stay right there on that side of the counter that I couldn't see it yet! I opened my card, It had one of my favorite pictures of us on the front, special ordered just for me! Of course, there was the sweetest note in the world in there. I cried again.

Then he told me to close my eyes... now open!  He had made a gorgeous picture for my room! He works for my dad's sign company so he didn't have any trouble at all finding good help! ;)
It was one of the pictures I had taken in the sunflower field (same time as my header was taken). It's realllly long and looks realllly pretty over my bed! I'll have to take a picture of it when I get it hung and post it on here! I love it!!

So this birthday has been wonderful so far! Now I'm just ready for my family to come home!

Happy happy birthday, dear Molly!! I'm glad your birthday has turned out to be way better than you expected. What a sweet friend and a wonderful boyfriend you have! I can't wait to see the sunflower picture he made you. I've never told you that I just LOVE your header, but I do :) Rest up so you can enjoy your family when they get home! Happy birthday to yoooooooooou!


PS--Your birthday is exactly 20 days before mine...how fun! I'll have two years on you then, though, so if you're old, I'm older :)

Happy Belated Birthday, sweet friend! I'm so sorry I missed this on your actual birthday--bummer!!!

Nevertheless, I'm so glad to hear you had such a fun day. I LOVE the pillow your friend gave you, and the slumber party sounds like a blast. I'm pretty sure we never outgrow slumber parties.

And then there's Josh... What a darling boyfriend you have--he did such a good job! I bet the picture is absolutely stunning! I still remember the first time I saw your blog and fell completely in love with your header. What a neat gift from him. I've decided guys named "Josh" are the ones to stick with =D

Hope your week is off to a great start. I'm going to try to get several more posts up this week (still correcting those dang errors--grr!), but I have a huge open house for my jewelry business on Thursday (will write more about that) and have pretty much been working day and night trying to get things ready for that. Lots of work, but lots of fun. Anyways, we'll hope for the best and see how much I can get accomplished. Cross your fingers!

Talk to you soon! =)
