Happy Happy Birthday Sarah dear!

Today is my dear friend, Sarah's, 25th birthday! Welcome to the older twenties Sarah-you've joined ranks with some pretty cool people:) Sarah was the first friend I made when we moved to the Dallas area. We were both new to the area and were sometimes the only two people that showed up to our ward's playgroup, which ended up being a great thing I say! We got to know each other really well and became friends fast. We both became pregnant at the same time, with our due dates only being a couple of weeks apart. Then we both found out we were having girls. Then in March of last year we both had our babies only 9 days apart! It was lots of fun to have a good friend to be pregnant with at the same time. Thanks Sarah for being my first friend here and remaining such a wonderful friend for the past couple of years. I hope you have an awesome birthday today!

To help her celebrate, me, Katie, Melissa & Sarah(the Fab Four:) went out to Chili's for dinner a couple of nights ago. Then we headed over to Katie's house for delicious birthday cake and a movie. We, of course, had to continue the sombrero tradition we started at Melissa's party and made Sarah wear the sombrero too. But, thats not all, Katie whipped out some maracas for her to shake too:) Good move Katie. I'll have to think of something extra for you to wear on your birthday coming up:) Maybe I'll rent a mule.

Sarah knows how to shake it
Katie, me and Sarah smiling for the cameraCan you find one thing different between this picture and the last? Give up? Okaaaay, I'll tell ya:) Me and Melissa swapped-she was the photographer that night. Thanks, Melissa!Here is Sarah kissing the gift I gave her-thats how much she loved it! Actually it was part of the card. I bought her this "grow a man" card. Its one of those things you put in water and it grows. It was so hilarious. He promises to do the dishes,make dinner and flex his biceps !) What a great boy toy. Hope you don't mind Dave, but you've got some competition now:)
Could I not have found a better song to go with this post? :)
