Happy Birthday To Me!

First, I want to say thanks for all of the birthday love! I had a great weekend. So many people made my birthday weekend special!

Saturday I got to sleep in because Jamison and Rondell went to Home Depot and Caleb was already over my MIL's house. Then it was time to get ready for the party. The theme was yellow, of course.

Here's Rondell preparing some of the food. He went and picked out all of the decorations and went to the store to get all of the items we needed for the menu.

Gramma Lee came over a little early so I could show her my camera and test it out on her. I still have a few things to learn about it (as you may be able to tell in some of the pictures...lighting, focus, etc.)
I decided the day before to also invite Jamison because she really loves birthday parties. She helped so much with the decorations and getting things ready. I was very happy that she was there. **She ended up losing her other top tooth later that night.

Here's the table set up (with some food missing). Rondell bought me some beautiful sunflowers as a centerpiece. We had chicken club wrap, vegetable pizza (with yellow banana peppers), beer bread with Garlic Garlic dip, veggies and dip (with yellow peppers), spinach dip with chips, meatballs, Tonya's famous mac and cheese, pineapple, cookies and apple crisp. Oh and lemonade.


My friend Jodie made her famous sugar cookies and made them to look like sunflowers. My friend Sara added the yellow pepper to her veggie tray. People are so thoughtful.

Meredith, Sara and Elliott. Meredith gave me ingredients to make her aunt's famous chicken noodle soup and the recipe card because Rondell said that I like recipes in the evite he sent out.

Jodie and Andy.

Ben and Laura.

Bo and Christa. They are due with their first baby in January.

Mommy, Rondell and Tonya.

Mommy and her two kids.

Here's a picture of everyone who wore yellow. Check out Elliott...he really knows how to accessorize.

The girls.

Tonight we went to dinner with my friend Lyndsey and her family. They were out of town yesterday so we decided to meet up for dinner tonight to celebrate.
My partner in crime! I also gave blood today so that's what the big sticker is on my shirt.

Lyndsey and her crew + Jamison. It was such a beautiful night.

Caleb and Gramma Lee.

It was a wonderful 33rd birthday! Until next year...
