Give up? It's probably not too hard to guess, actually. They are some of the beautiful gifts I received from my dearest loved ones yesterday for my birthday! I am so blessed! Let me break it down...
Oreo-filled chocolate chip cookies baked by my amazing sister, Jackie.
Yes, I said "Oreo-filled chocolate chip cookies," which means that they are
chocolate chip cookies with an entire Oreo inside. I die!
A souvenir brought back from Ryan's latest business trip to Salt Lake City.
I love me some taffy! Yum!
|A rather expensive-looking (but really not at all) watch from my Mama!|
Fresh flowers —two separate bouquets (one from my Mom, one from Ryan)
combined into one. They look beautiful on my kitchen table today!
Photo album of some of the awesome shots Jackie took of our family a few
weeks ago. She also gave me the disk with all of the originals, but it was
fun to flip through her creative edits on some of the better ones in this
|A new set of white wine glasses. This one was a special|
request as I have managed to break all but one of my
previous set over the past several years. Clumsy!!!
|Continuing with her all-homemade gift theme, Jackie also painted this|
chevron pattern onto a doormat for my front door. Swoon!
My birthday was really special. I spent then entire day with some of my very closest loved ones, including Mom (we saw Bridesmaids and it was hil.ar.i.ous!!!), Dad (who helped me keep tabs on the wee one at the children's museum and took about a million pictures and videos in the meantime), Jackie (who, with her precious babe Brody, enjoyed dinner and cake with us), Ryan (we shared some good couch conversation over a cocktail before bed), and of course...Owen (who gave me the most precious gift of all...this birthday song):
Happy to ME!
