Birthday Weekend

Birthdays that fall on a Friday are the absolute best because you get to celebrate all weekend! It was a rainy weekend at the beach but that didn't stop us from celebrating! When I came home from babysitting on Friday I had all sorts of goodies waiting for me. After gifts and visiting with everyone we headed to dinner with my dad, sister, Justin and his parents to one of our favorite local spots, Boardwalk Billy's. This restaurant has a gorgeous view overlooking the water and always has live music playing. While we were at dinner one of my best friends from college got engaged!! Congratulations Maghan! 

I LOVE my new classroom sign!! 

I was thanking my sister for the earrings she got me. They are the symbol for friendship because she said I was her best friend. It doesn't get sweeter than that my friends. (:

Saturday morning was rainy which made for the perfect time to sleep in and take it easy. Does it get better than a rainy Saturday morning.. especially, with family in town, homemade french toast, bacon, coffee and fresh flowers! Perfection! We finally got our act together Saturday and headed to the mall to take advantage of tax free weekend. I was able to score some pretty awesome deals on fall clothes and a pair of Frye boots!! I have been wanting a pair of Frye's for FOREVER but didn't want to pay the full price. I finally lucked up when I had a gift card I could apply, a $30 off coupon, no tax AND 25% off because the guy helping us was awesome. Now I am ready for cooler weather so I can start wearing them around!! We made it back Saturday night just in time to enjoy a seafood dinner and homemade strawberry lemonade cake made by Justin's mom. It was all SO delicious! 

Finally!! I'm still so excited!

Sunday was spent at Newspring Church, Cracker Barrel, and at a celebration of life for Justin's grandfather. Sunday was a good reminder of just how important your faith and family is.
