I had SUCH a great birthday yesterday! Here’s a recap of my favorite day-time moments via Facebook posts:
Christopher took me to Ciao Bella and oh my gracious it was amazing! Definitely our new favorite Italian place in Memphis! I will update all about it soon! 🙂
Funny side note, Christopher plays basketball over lunch every day so when Tony texted to ask if he would be there yesterday here is the conversation that took place:
Oh goodness this cracked me up! This message got passed around to everyone yesterday, haha! Christopher is notorious for sending messages without reading them first. He once texted me that he “showered” a coworker (instead of “showed” them). Ah, just love him. 😉
Then yesterday evening all our best friends here in Memphis came over to party with us!
Most of the time when I’m talking about our friends here in Memphis, it’s someone in this shot. Of all the people we hang out with in Memphis, these are the ones we’re always around! Definitely our Memphis besties! 🙂
As a random side note, I always feel really awkward when people sing Happy Birthday to me. I think it’s because everyone is staring at me and I’m not quite sure where to look or what to do (is it weird to sing along?). Anyway, last night I thought I might have gotten away with only candles and no singing, but as this video proves… there was plenty of singing:
Things to notice about this video: (1) how awkward I look when I don’t know what to do while everyone is singing to me – I promise I really was grateful for the happy birthday wishes, I just wasn’t sure what to do, haha! (2) my fear of my hair catching on fire when I blow out my candles (3) my second awkward face as I attempt to wave all the smoke away from the cake (4) the glee I exhibit when the tables are turned and we are suddenly singing for Christopher (in celebration of his graduation) (5) the third awkward moment when I realized that both Tony and I forgot part of the words to the song and we laugh at each other.
And I’ll end with this shot. These are the girls I talk about all the time on the blog. So just for reference: Abigail, Courtney, Mandy, (Hadley, haha!) Lilly, Whitney, me, Heather, Heather, and Lyndal. 🙂 Yes, there are two Heathers and yes they are standing side-by-side, haha! These ladies are some of my best friends. I can’t even begin to tell you guys how grateful I am for them. 🙂
