it's my birthday!!! i really really really need to post an update about my 30 acts of kindness that i did. i really want to take time on it though, so this will be a quick birthday post. ok, maybe not so quick. i have lots to say. in addition to the BFF and her family surprising me, my parents also came and surprised me. they watched all the kids today so my mister and i and the BFF and her hubby could go to houston for the day. we were so very thankful for them! the mother-in-law came and helped out and, from what we heard, all went well. the kids love to play with them and i can't even say how thankful we are that they would do that for us.
off to houston we went. and the first place we hit up was crave. the cupcake place. it was 11:00 and considered brunch for us. and the cupcakes were AMAZING.
after that we headed to some shopping center and then to the galleria. we ate lunch at ninfa's and walked the mall. just having adult time and going shopping without small children was the best birthday gift ever. one last stop by the cupcake place to get a dozen to go and we were headed home. it was so much fun, but we were EXHAUSTED!!!!
what a fun birthday it was!! i'm so very thankful for all of my friends who sent emails, texts, and facebook messages. the Lord has definitely blessed me with amazing friends and family. here's to the next thirty years ...
