I wanted to post yesterday, but didn't get around to it. 

Yesterday was my birthday.

My 25th birthday to be exact.

I have yet to celebrate in any big way. 

So far...

The girls at my work surprised me with donuts on Thursday morning.  Yummy.

A little girl at school told me that my dress was "very, very beautiful."

My wonderful husband that knows me all too well surprised me with this...


I was so SO in LOVE with the wrapping paper.  To me it was farrrrr better than any fancy paper, ribbon, bow, etc. that he could have purchased at the store.  I liked how personal (and messy) it was.



Perfect gift.  Smells delicious.  Makes me feel special.



All of my family texted or called to wish me a happy day.  It was special.  Especially when my sister put Miss Ava on the phone.  I got to hear that precious little voice.  That in itself was a great gift.  Love her.


I got some gift cards and some cash, so I did a little shopping last night.  Got a new dress for a wedding next weekend!


Speaking of next week...


We are traveling to LA next week.  I told Justin a while back that all I wanted for my birthday was to see my loved ones.  I didn't need a tangible gift.  Just my family.  And being the awesome hubby that he is, he is making my dream come true :) :) :)  I have missed them so much.


I'm not exactly where I thought I would be, nor have I done everything I wanted to do by the time I turned 25.  My life has not gone according to my plan.  But, I'm okay with that.  I know that I'm where I am supposed to be according to HIS plan. 

So, happy birthday to me!
