I missed a few important things...

First off, (and most importantly) I want to say I HAVE MISSED YOU!  Sorry I haven't responded to all your amazing messages or posted on my blog or kept up with your blogs for the past week.  I have been so busy with life :( I am going to get caught up on my e-mails this week and with your blogs!  Secondly, my birthday was this past Thursday!  Happy Late Birthday to me!  I wanted to share my birthday pictures with you...On Wednesday night, my boyfriend, Andrew and I went downtown to a nice restaurant called Rick Erwin's.  On my actually birthday, my family had an amazing dinner at my house for me.  We had filet mignon, cheese mash potatoes, cream spinach and homemade bread. YUM!
Night One:

I love the back of this dress!  I got it at McAuley's Boutique.

It was rainy all day, but my curls stayed :)

Me and my love

desert, yum!

Our delish bottle of wine.  We like a lot of wines made in Chile.

NIGHT TWO:
[the real birthday night]
each birthday my mom always sings, "It's your birthday, you can do what you want to! do what you want to! do what you want to!"  it is not a real birthday without my mom singing that to me-and has become a birthday tradition.

My boyfriend got me these gorgeous flowers!  In fact, we have been dating over a year and a half and this is the first time I have received flowers from him-pretty monumental.  My little sister gave me the top I am wearing for my birthday.  It is by Free People-she is more of a FP lover than I am!

Tuxedo Truffle Cake from the Fresh Market
this is not a joke.  the best cake you will ever taste!  if you live near a Fresh Market, I challenge you to go by the bakery and buy a bar of the tuxedo truffle cake because it will melt in your mouth-7 layers of heaven.  by the way, i have a major sweet tooth-can you tell?
Photobucket
Yeah, you know you want that cake.

The birthday celebrations aren't quite over.  My best girlfriends and I will be going to dinner and out downtown this Tuesday.  I am excited to share photos of our night with you!

I hope everyone is looking forward to a short week at school/work and celebrating Thanksgiving!  And who is excited for BLACK FRIDAY shopping?  I am.
