Birthday Blessings and GIVEAWAY!

Hello friends! Ok, so sorry I am just now getting around to this I have been busy being *spoiled rotten* for my birthday! :) Now, I am probably one of the least braggy people in the world (unless I'm kidding or being sarcastic...which is often) But let me just take a second to say how TRULY blessed I am to have such amazing family and friends in my life!

First of all, my husband came home from work first thing this morning with these in his hand!! :) (minus the lucky bamboo... End of the year present from a student that I just didn't have the heart to leave at school all summer and let die!)

Then, as if that weren't sweet enough, he whips this bad boy out in the cutest little bag with the sweetest card!

Let me just say I am OBSESSED! I have been playing with it on and off ALL day, and just got home about 20 minutes ago, and haven't put it down!!
He thinks he's so funny with his titles on his cards... Now that we are getting older he loves to rub in the fact that he is 5 months younger than I am!! ;)

After he went to bed (he works 7pm-7am), my mom calls me and tells me to get ready because she's taking me to Louisville to go shopping for the day! We found some incredible deals and my sweet mama bought me so many cute outfits! I won't bore you with a picture of each one, but here's a sneak peek:

As if that weren't enough pampering, when we got home my husband took me to my in-laws' where my mother-in-law gave me her present!


All of this fabulousness was followed by a DE-LI-CIOUS dinner at our local Sushi restaurant (YUM!) with the hubs, a beautiful walk by the river, and of course, a strawberry sundae from DQ! (So bummed they don't have the S'mores blizzards anymore!!) And of course, I received tons of sweet texts, FB posts, phone calls, and photo collages from the best friends anyone could ever ask for! 

I was seriously SHOCKED!! I never in a million years expected to get so spoiled today! (Not that I didn't think I would get nice presents, my family is incredible and knew they would do something, but never in a million YEARS would I have imagined all of this!!) I feel like I should be on an episode of "My Super Sweet 16" or something!! Ok, maybe I'm going overboard a *little* bit, and I promise I am in no way trying to brag, but seriously, I feel so lucky to have such amazing people in my life and I feel like I can't thank God enough for all of his blessings he has given me!
