The birthday recap

I had a great birthday! My parents came to watch Jack for the day, and Kyle and I headed to Ann Arbor for lunch and just hanging out downtown. He surprised me when we were down there with an appointment for a manicure and pedicure to make up for the lost gift certificate!

We stopped by the mall on the way out of town and headed home to put Jack to bed, make sandwiches and watch a movie . . . or so I thought.

On our way home, my parents called to say they were at camp getting my brother packed up to leave camp so we could meet them there. We went to meet them at the field house and there was a surprise party waiting for me! I even had cards from my far away friends who couldn't be there! It was such a fun day!

Thanks to everyone who called, sent messages, came to the party, sent cards and made me feel incredibly loved and appreciated yesterday!

Happy Birthday (a little late)! I'm glad it turned out so great. I was feeling your pain about the pedicure gift certificate -- I love pedicures -- I'm glad Kyle helped make it a great day (special points for the manicure & pedicure)!!

YAY! I'm so sorry I couldn't be there Sara, but I was sending the love your way. :) I hope you had the BEST time, and I hope my card made it to you. I had fun getting to know Joy a little bit while having some incognito email convos!! :)

So Happy Birthday to you! We were really hoping to be there, but just couldn't make it! Glad you had such a great day! Look at Kyle...what a great guy! I think you should keep him!

Woo hoo! I too had fun conspiring with Joy to have a card waiting for you (it did make it, didn't it?). Wish I could have been there - makes me miss you more! Happy Bday.

Aw man. I didn't get to send a card!!! Buttt, I hope you got my fun text message (I thought I'd switch it up from posting on your blog and facebook).

Glad you had a wonderful birthday :)
