it's my party and i'll cry if i want to.

seriously i cried yesterday, on my birthday, but in a good way.

my birthday hijacking post from the Mr. brought tears to my eyes. it was so sweet and i was so surprised! made. my. day. thank you Lord for such a godly, godly man.

 this is what 27 feels like...i guess...
it's not too bad, although thinking about being a mere 3 years away from the big 3-0 gives me slight heebie jeebies.

i remember when i thought i would never see my high school graduation year, 2004.
i mean, come on, the year 2004 sounds so futuristic right?
or when i was 6 and thrilled about my teenage mutant ninja turtle birthday cake (yes, i was a total tomboy).

and now.
i've graduated from college, been married to the love of my life for almost 5 years, and am a momma to the most amazing 10 month old.

yes, my childhood MASH games were a little off, but i'm so thankful.
especially to not be living in that shack ;)

here's to many more years of full abundant life!

he knows the way to my heart: sugar cookies and flowers.

singing: "you would cry too if it happened to you"


  1. Sounds like a wonderful day! Happy belated birthday, friend!

  2. I graduated in 2004 too and will be 27 in feb.. I think the same thing about turning 30... Happy late birthday!

  3. Firstly, hope you had a great birthday yesterday. Your hubby does seem like a great guy!! :)

    Secondly.... I had a teenage mutant ninja turtle cake for my 7th birthday!!!! No word of a lie!!! My mum made it and it was a whole teenage mutant ninja turtle theme. How cool are we?! ;) And since I am 28, it would have been the same year!

    ...And MASH.. oh how I used to love that!

  4. Hi! A new follower over here :)

    Your real-life MASH story is much like mine! I turn 27 in Nov and will be married to my love for 5 years in Jan! Woot, woot!

  5. you have such a sweet husband :)
    hope you had a wonderful birthday!!

    I use to love MASH. haha glad i don't live in that shack either!

  6. Oh my I remember the MASH game! I haven't thought of that in years. I'll be 27 the next time my birthday rolls around and I definitely know how you feel (you know the whole 30 thing). It sounds like you had an amazing birthday...all the best wishes for a wonderful year.

  7. Happy belated birthday! I remember playing MASH...I found a sheet with one of the games my friends and I had done years and years ago. It was pretty hilarious. Hope you had a great day!
