Turning 29...for the FIRST time.

Yesterday (17th) was my 29th Birthday. CRAZY! Tim asked what I wanted and I said I wanted a girls night out. So I called the girls and planned the evening. My long time friend Monika Peterson and my sweet neighbor/friend Maria Bramwell went to get pedicures with me and then Angela Calhoun and Deb White met up with us for Ice Cream afterwards. They are the sweetest! I don't know why we werent better friends in Arizona. I'm so sad I didn't get a picture with Maria getting pedicures with us before she left to her Young Women's meeting. I was having so much fun talking and I totally forgot. (I'm so sorry Maria) And I have to say, Sarah Bowen was there in spirit. Her daughter got sick at the last minuet and she couldn't make it. We missed you Sarah. So here are some pictures from my fun evening...

To start off, Tim brought home dinner and these...

Twice in one week! WOW!-- Katrina loves to smell these...

Tim took the kids to Target and they picked out some jewlery for me. I think they did a good job...

Getting pedicures...(I will have to photoshop Maria in) :o)

ARIZONA girls getting Milk Shakes at Steak and Shake. Yummm! Deb, Angela, Monika, and Me. We don't even look tired even though we stayed out until 11...

I'm feeling more festive with all this fun fall stuff I got from Angela...

And this cute ceramic pumpkin from Deb filled with Pumpkin Spice Hershey Kisses. YUM! Everytime I open the lid the smell of pumpkin pie rushes out. YUMMY!!!!

Maria gave me this YUMMY Pumpkin Bread Mix. How did everybody know I LOVE pumpkin?!

Monika knows me to well... What a cute Scrapbook Album.

When I got home these were by my front door...

And my Visiting Teachers brought choc. chip cookies. Maria also gave me some delicious chocolate cookies but The kids and I gobbled them up before dinner. My computer has a mind of it's own and rotates pictures when I don't want it to...

This was the BEST birhtday ever! Thanks so much for being there and making it a special day! I don't know if I could be here with out you girls. You make this feel like home.

I like the back ground by the way, it is good for autumn and perfect for blogging.

Happy Birthday Shayleen. I loved the title of your entry. How many times do you plan to turn 29? My dad was 20 for almost 20 years before he decided he'd better get a little older. I'm glad you had a special day. You deserve it! We love & miss you guys.
