birthday blessings

I had a great birthday. These cutie girlfriends took me to lunch at P.F. Changs. It was delightful. Ella saw these photos and asked, "Why are there no kids there?" Like I said, it was delightful. Delayne worked her stuff and got us a free dessert--banana egg rolls with coconut pineapple ice cream. The ice cream isn't something I would normally order, but it was amazing. Apparently you can't get it anywhere else. It was Tracie's birthday too, which made it even more fun to celebrate.

Love these girls and feel so blessed to have such fun and supportive friends. We all need that. They are amazing. Mykel was there too, but she had to leave early to deliver Krispy Kreme donuts to Haley's class for her birthday.

Loved these flowers from my Dad. So simple and beautiful. Thanks, Dad. Love you.

I had been looking for a new brown purse forever and finally found one I liked at Nordstrom Rack last month. I told Lynn it's what I wanted for my birthday. Great deal too. It was originally $250, marked down to $65, so I bought the same one in black too. Lynn also gave me (don't laugh!) snowshoes. Lynn and Patrick go snowshoeing a lot. I read an article in Country Living magazine written by a woman who really enjoyed the experience, so I thought I might want to give it a try. I know it's surprising for someone who hates the cold as much as I do, but the snow in Utah isn't going away and I thought it would be a great family activity. Ella even has a pair. I'll let you know how it goes. :)

My sweet friends delivered little gifts throughout the day. Loved seeing each of them and it made my birthday extra special that they remembered. Ruth Ann brought me a cupcake from Dear Lizzie. I shared, but wished I hadn't. It was so yummy! Best cupcake I've had in forever.


  1. I had a great time. We need to go back soon.

  2. Happy Birthday; sounds like a great day.

  3. Belated Happy Birthday, Kim. I didn't realize we shared a March birthday. I won't ask your age; I won't tell you mine!! I guess Jessica has set us up to do a quilt this summer. Can't wait!
