"It's my party, i can t.p a house and fork a lawn if i want to"

i am 35! (well tomorrow nov. 16th i will be)
what did i do to celebrate?

friday p.m. to saturday a.m. was spent with these FABULOUS girls, at mama holly's house.
(l-r , couch- mama holly, kathy, michelle, shirin, ruth, julie, cari, christie, barb. floor- sylvia, kelli, mary, me, and traci)

thank you lindsey for this great decorating idea.i made this banner which says, "CELEBRATE."
as you can see i went with an M.E. theme.
slippers were party favors for my guests.

we ate nachos (no diane, i did not share), played "i never," sang karaoke, danced, played speed scrabble, 4 on a couch, and we T.P.'d HOUSES!!
there was one rule at my party- NO ADULTING ALOUD!
there was even a time-out chair for anyone caught behaving like an adult.

saturday a.m. chef michael, and his crew- noah, emilie, and josie, came over and treated us all to a delicious breakfast of; blueberry/apple waffles, french toast, bacon, and omelets with all our favorite fixings! (i know my husband is awesome).
in my opinion, it was the BEST 35th birthday EVER!

i am blessed with friendship. each lady is so UNIQUELY WONDERFUL!! and adds to my life in ways that refresh, stir, move, inspire me.

i am blessed with a loving husband, and beautiful children. everyday with them i am living my wildest dreams.

MY HEART IS GLAD. could you think of a better birthday gift than that!

name that tune, karaoke, and t.p fun!
