My parents came in town, more so for my sweet brother's birthday, who was also in town, but my generous mama took me shopping, so you know, birthday presents already!
First I was surprised with a pumpkin carving party with some of our sweet high-school-Bible-study-goers, so that was fun. :) Messy, and so worth it!
Then, about a week before my birthday, I was surprised once again. Mike suggested we get out of the house and walk around the mall. I was mulling around Bath and Body Works, ya know, smelling a bunch of stuff. (you should really smell the "Cashmere gold" or whatever it's called. Pretty much my favorite scent now) So, you know, since it was my birthday month I HAD to buy, like, the whole collection!
Ok, it was buy 3 get 3 free, so I didn't feel so guilty. Let's just say 25 is going to be a great smelling year!
Anyway, so we go to the mall for a little bit, and then we leave and go to some park that I've never been to. By then, I was so tired and didn't really feel like walking around, but Mike convinced me. After braving it through a field of mud, we made our way to the walking path where I found a rose with a note attached.
Eventually, there ended up being 12 roses, each with a sweet, thoughtful note. We ended up having dinner at the little lake at the park, where a table was set up and Chuy's Mexican food was waiting for us! Yum!
Of course I had to feed the ducks some of the leftover chips... and made sure to leave when that huge goose started attacking the other ducks. It was getting serious up in there!
For my actual birthday, I had choir practice after school and my cute, little choir sang happy birthday to me. Mike and I went to eat wings and then stopped off at my sister's house for dessert. I made sure not to overstuff myself like last year where I literally ended up eating so much I threw up!) So we talked and played with the cute lil' munchkins for a bit.
I don't know why, but I'm really excited about being 25. It's going to be a fantastic year. Looking forward to what the Lord has in store!
already loving 25,
