The Best Laid Plans...

Yesterday, I turned 30! Ever since my birthday last year, I have told Andrew that he better throw me a big party for my 30th birthday. He decided last year that he was going to call it a Hotta Momma Ho-Down (for those that don't know, Andrew almost always calls me Hotta Momma). Andrew spent Monday and Tuesday last week, handing out invitations and making phone calls about my party. Only to have to call everyone a few days later and cancel the party plans because our little Deker decided to come 4 weeks earlier than expected. Deker and I came home from the hospital the day the party was scheduled for and we didn't want to postpone it for the weekend after because that is the 4th of July weekend. But, there is always next year!

On the morning of my birthday, I was a little dissapointed that I didn't get to have my party, but the day turned out to be pretty good anyway. Andrew gave me a beautiful bench to put on our front porch, which is something that I have wanted to a long time. And my wonderful Mom took us all out to dinner to Olive Garden, which is one of my favorite restaurants. Andrew also bought me a small cake and so the four of us had cake that night as well.

Thank you to my wonderful husband for making such a big effort to make my birthday special. And thank you to my Mom for taking time out of her very busy schedule to come visit and help us this week. You were such a wonderful help to us!

Happy Birthday! Your honey is so cute. I was wondering about your party. I got a invite on my door. We will need to go to lunch. Call me if you need anything. If you need to get out.
