a quarter of a century

We had such a fun weekend! Grammie was here to hang out with her girls because my birthday was Sunday. Unfortunately G-Pop had to work so he couldn't party with us. We woke up to a happy baby girl on Saturday morning! She is so smiley ALL the time, but the mornings are especially precious. We had some errands to run, so we got the girl dressed and headed out the door. But not without taking a handful of pictures first...
 Her cuteness is too much to bear sometimes...I mean, look at her! 
Maybe I'm partial. Maybe.
When we got home my brother and sister-in-law arrived, so we had lunch and just hung out while Jaqs was napping. Rob got off work mid-afternoon, so after baby got up we went to Waco for dinner at one of my favorites!
love my fam
those sugar cheeks are irresistible 
aunt cole & uncle kb
My wonderful mama treated us to Pei Wei....YUMMY. Can't go wrong!
After dinner, we came back home for a gluten free Texas sheet cake...oh my goodness! It was delicious. Of course, anything with excessive butter is bound to be good, right?
I also got some awesome presents...woohoo! Birthday gifts are always fun.
 Sunday was my actual birthday, so we had a big breakfast at home and enjoyed some more time together. Rob had to leave for work around lunchtime, so Grammie hung out with us for a bit longer before she had to leave.
That evening my lovely girlfriends took me to dinner since all our guys were working! It was so much fun, and with 6 littles it was one lively party! :) Wouldn't have it any other way! Jaqs was taking herself a little catnap when we arrived, so she got to be the center of attention when she woke up. I thought this picture was too cute to pass up!
J baby was excited to see daddy when he got off after dinner!
It's funny how 25 used to seem so 'mature' to me, and now here I am. I guess I'm a full blown grown up, huh? ;) I think this will be one awesome year! My number one birthday wish came true in my girl, so I just don't see how this year couldn't be a success!

Thank you to my wonderful family and friends for making my birthday such a fun day! And thank you all for the facebook messages, texts, tweets, etc.
I definitely felt the love.

CHEERS to 25!

Happy Birthday!! 25 is a nice age... and you aren't old. Wait until you are almost 30 ;) I love the pictures of Jaqs; she has so much personality!

Glad you had a great birthday! You are a young one- 25! I will be 27 in November. 27 sounds so much older than 25! ;)
