Birthday Week Has Begun!

Birthday week is officially in full swing! Birthday week is a tradition we picked up from our friend, Beth, and try to honor to some extent each year. Last night birthday week started with a dinner at the Cheesecake Factory with my sister and brother-in-law. I just don't know a better start to a birthday week than Godiva chocolate cheesecake! Today Jason took Camryn to Wal-Mart to let her pick out a surprise for me. After steering her away from all the things she was convinced I would want (a babydoll, a toy baby bottle and bed, a Wonder Pets playset), she finally settled on Gamecock earrings and a Gamecock cell phone case. She was so cute walking into the house carrying her Wal-Mart bag and saying, "Mommy, we bought you a surprise for your birthday!" Of course, she can't keep a secret so I got early birthday presents along with cupcakes. My birthday present from Jason (my new camera!) will be in later this week. Tomorrow (my actual birthday) we have church, so there probably won't be any real celebrating on that day. But, later this week comes my best present of all which is our trip back to Anderson! We're so excited because this will be the first time we've been back since moving, and we just can't wait to see all of our friends who we have missed so much!

Happy Birthday! You are just under a month younger than me...but still younger, lol. Birthday week is a great idea. I do this for my family...but not for myself. I need to remember this next year. Cheesecake Factory is one of my absolute favorites!! YUM!! Hope your ears don't fall off with those gamecock earrings (We are Gator fans!!).
