A surprise party for me? Aw shucks.

So, today I hit the big 28 and you know what? Its great! :) And I also have to say, I have the awesomest friends ever! Friday night a few of my buds threw me a surprise party and it was lots of fun! It meant so much to me that they did that. I feel so loved! And I was very surprised!

Here is the clan-everyone is laughing at Katie and I was totally out of the loop because I couldn't see her like everyone else could. So, while they giggle, I just sit and stare at the camera like a doofus.Smile!
Sarah made this cake-isn't it so cool? The girls picked a "Lucky Charm" theme to the party since my favorite cereal is Lucky Charms:) This must have taken all day to make Sarah! It turned out so cute and it meant so much that you put that much time into my cake. And it tasted so delicious!
Present time! Look at those pretty flowers!
Don't ask.
Gift card and candy, a winning combination

Time to blow out the candles. Hopefully I get "lucky" and get my wish this year.
I am so grateful to have such great friends! They planned such a fun party with great food(they even had mint milanos there-another favorite of mine!), fun games and good girly talk. They put a ton of thought into this and I will never forget it. Thank you so much for making my birthday special!

So, today is going splendidly. I have had a few fun surprises already! I will post today's surprises and festivities later tonight. So, check back later!

Oh yeah, sorry I closed my comment to quick that Lucky charm cake was too cute. I have never seen one before~you should tell the Lucky Charms people they probably would now make a cake to sell in the stores. Not really but they might.
