I was getting calls and messages...
It wasn't my birthday.
My birthday was the next day.
(Maybe FB thought I was still in Japan where it WOULD have been my birthday...?)
I didn't complain. I'll take praise and adulation whenever and where ever I can get 'em!
I've been celebrating ever since.
BUT, I've also had work to do.
Friday night was our ward Valentines Dance.
I'm the RS activity chair so I was there early and left late.
I think it went well...chocolate fondue was involved...
My friend Kristen came to the activity to teach a swing dancing lesson with her husband Shawn*. (As a favor to me because she's awesome.)
|Kristen and Shawn teaching us to Lindy Hop|
I was her bridesmaid. She was my bridesmaid...you get the picture...!
I love her!}
After they taught their lesson, they left.
And snuck into my house.
Actually, they didn't sneak. The babysitter, my niece Ashlin, let 'em in and Kristen toilet-papered my room leaving a beautiful Orchid in the middle of my bed.
Because she's awesome.
|Don't mind the laundry piled at the foot of the bed|
|Partially made bed with part of a broken bubble wand on it for some reason|
She decorated me 'n Fae's apartment for my 17th birthday and wrote "Emily Rules" in crepe paper on the ceiling. (I believe Wendy and Mindy were co-conspiritors.)
|I have mad scrap-booking skills, eh?!|
On my birthday, a few girls went out of their way to spoil me and I felt very loved.
Sorta (but not quite) just like this year!
Moral of this story is some things never change:
I'm a lucky girl and Kristen is an awesome friend!!!
Happy Birthday to ME!
*Shawn's not so bad either. He created our logo, business cards, and website that we get tons of compliments on!!!
