The best birthday ever

I know I am late getting this up, but I had to blog about my wonderful birthday. I turned 22 glorious years old on January 14th. Birthdays are a big deal to me. I love love love them.
My day....
My wonderful mother came to Memphis to take me to lunch and took me to Red Lobster. Yummmy!! I ate a yummy seafood lunch. When we got in the car to drive home, the presesnts she had gotten me were not hidden well enough so I found them and snickered! Ha, I am too tricky! My mom laughed and handed me a bag. A new three barrell, with large barrells and a pair of crystal earrings I have been drooling over for a while. We then went to see Robert in the classroom. He was trying to teach his class how to sing me happy birthday in spanish, but I got there before he was finished teaching them, so they sang to me in english. He got to show Riley and me off to his eigth graders and we had fun meeting the kids. I hated to leave him, but I knew he would be off before too long.
Robert came home from work and in one hand he had a dozen gorgeous hot pink long stemmed roses. They were called "hot princess" roses. In the other hand, he held a bottle of strawberry sparkling cider. I was so happy to see him; the roses and cider were just a plus. We left Riley with Sandra and Brent and set off to have an evening to ourselves. We went to Outback Steakhouse (steak is my favorite) and had a delicious steak dinner. Then we went to Baskin Robbins, where Robert had got me an ice cream cake! I was so excited and laughed so hard when I saw the cake. It had "Walter and Bazaar" on it. This is an inside joke between us and it still makes me laugh thinking about it. We shared the cake with my family when we went to pick up our precious baby boy. The next morning, I got all ready and I had invited my family and just a few friends to eat dinner with me that night at Nae's house. Nae made my favorite meal, sweet pork burritos. My mom is soo funny. She was bound and determined to have me an ice cream cookie from Maggie Moos. We drove an hour, due to traffic and construction, to get my birthday cookie. When we got there, my mom spoiled me and got me ice cream cupcakes too! I had so much fun laughing and giggling with Renee and Mom on the way to get the cupcakes. It could have been frustrating, but we laughed it off. I got to dinner and was ready to party!!
Renee had got me a pair of Gianni Bini high heels....they were sooooo awesome! I love them. Along with the heels, she had me Viva la juicy, and other goodies.
Sandra got me Noir and a super cute exercise top. I love that she is supporting my healthy lifestyle :)
I got lots of other good treats that are all very noteworthy, but I dont want to brag too much ;)
I had such a great birthday. I loved having my family and friends over and celebrating the most important day of my history....ha, the day that I came to be!
