Birthday Weekend!

This weekend couldn't have been more beautiful!  The weather was absolutely perfect...minus a little wind.  I couldn't have felt more special or spoiled.  All my sisters took me out to eat for lunch and then to the outlets for a little shopping.  We even got to bring baby Lizzie along!  Sadly I didn't get her in the pic.

(Laura, Rachel, Dani, and Claire)

I appreciate my sisters so much.  They are not only fun, but they love me and give me Godly wisdom even when I don't want it.  Thankful to have them in my life!

Claire gave me Jesus Calling by Sarah Young.  I am really excited about reading it!

On Sunday MR.P made plans to take me to Athens (where we went to college) and have brunch at The Last Resort.  It was soo yummy!  We spent the rest of the day walking around Athens and enjoying the shops Athens has to offer.  We also took a nice walk on North Campus and read The Red and Black.  Good old times!

Once we were done shopping around we had time before we went to dinner with friends.  We decided to head to Home Depot and purchase our Microwave!!!!  Well, we had them hold it at another store because it wasn't available in Athens.  We are soooo excited about this.  We have some friends who are coming over on Friday to help us do the electrical wiring AND mount it!  I couldn't be more excited about this.  We decided to go with the GE CleanSteel Over-the-Range.  We liked it because it can't get fingerprints all over it :)  That makes me really happy!

Once we were done at Home Depot we headed to Mellow Mushroom with these friends!!  They also happen to be the friends that are coming to help out with the Mircrowave.  Nice huh??

It was a lovely 26th Birthday celebration.  I felt loved and celebrated by friends and family :)  Thanks for all the wonderful wishes!

My sister-in-law's mother wrote the "Jesus Calling" series. Sarah is an amazing woman and her devotionals are AWESOME! Enjoy it!

Yes, the beach never gets old! I know that I act like 15 minutes is forever, but it feels like it when it used to be right outside my door, you know? If you're ever headed toward South Florida for a weekend, and I happen to have a vacancy, you and your husband are welcome to a free pad by the water.


p.s. I'm THIRTY. I know.
