Ok, you should all be glad now. The birthday post is finally here! Beware..it's going to be a long one!
Bryan drove in late after he got done with practice. Thursday was our Kindergarten field trip to the Dallas Zoo. It went really well! The weather was great and we had a ton of fun. Thursday night, we went out with Jacque and Jason to celebrate my birthday at Cheddars. Man, have I missed that place! We had a blast!
The day was wonderful! I got to school and my room mom, Allison and some of the other Kinder teachers had decorated my bulletin board, door way, and room with streamers and balloons! That morning some of our kinder girls went on the announcements and sang us "Happy Birthday". My kids gave me cards and gifts and Bryan was a sweetheart and brought me Chick-fil-A for lunch. That afternoon, Allison surprised me at school and brought a mini birthday cake and gifts from the kids. My kids sang me "Happy Birthday" and I opened my gifts. The kids had all written a quote of " why they love Miss Snodgrass" and drawn an illustration. Allison then made it into a book. It was precious! I loved it! I also received gift cards to Starbucks, Chili's, and the movies! Awesome day at school!
After school was out, I came home and got to open my gifts from Bryan! FINALLY! He gave me a framed picture of him (I didn't have one yet), my favorite Ghiradelli chocolates, and drum roll please....
TICKETS TO SEE RASCAL FLATTS AND TAYLOR SWIFT IN CONCERT!!!
I was soooooooo excited! Rascal Flatts is one of my favorite bands and I love Taylor Swift! My baby definitely did good! ;0)
After I opened gifts, we finished packing and then drove to West to meet my family for dinner at a new restaurant called KD's. We got to the restaurant and I walked in the back to see my family and MORGAN and CHRIS!!! Ok, first of all I have to explain the excitement. I had been a little bummed out because none of my friends were going to be able to come home/celebrate my actual birthday with me. I had invited both Chris and Morgan, but they told me they wouldn't be able to come. I was sad, but understood. Both of them called me (separately) that day to wish me a happy birthday and to say they were sorry they couldn't make it. I totally believed them! Little did I know that Bryan, my mom, Morgan and Chris had secretly been scheming behind my back to surprise me..and let me say, BOY was I surprised! That, plus being with Bryan and my family was the best gift I could have been given! We had so much fun that night at dinner. It was wonderful!
We closed out the weekend with some shopping with the girls, a Baylor baseball game, some dessert at McAlisters, church and the family birthday dinner. I can honestly say that this is one of the best birthdays that I've had in a long time. Thank you to everyone who made it so special for me! I am truly blessed to have each of you in my life!
