I have The BESTEST Girlies in the world!

You know those times when you feel so loved & adored you wonder what on earth is wrong with everyone! LOL - This is one of those times for me. The past few years have been filled with great birthdays for me and this was no different. I have been very blessed! One of my many blessings is an amazing group of young ladies I have the privilage of calling friends.

Ashley is a fantastic cook so I knew it would be good, but I wasn't expecting the feast that lay before me. All my favorites of fajjitas, salads, homemade guacamole & pico had been prepared for the occasion. I received thoughtful gifts, well wishes and even a toast in my honor. I can't thank Ashley enough for hosting a birthday party for me & really appreciate everyone who came out to celebrate with me. They all mean the world to me and I hope they know it.

We got there and they had actually covered the place to the nines with birthday decorations. I had ballons, streamers, and a chocolate cake with, get this, blue & hot pink frosting!
