What a joy it is to be the birthday girl.
My husband and step daughters gave me a gift certificate to Massage Envy. Be jealous!
Sydney surprised me too. She and Brandon gave me a gift certificate to iTunes. MY FAVORITE STORE EVER! I mean…she really HAS grown up. This birthday is proof. No reminding from anyone. Just BOOM. Perfect gift and card.
My baby starts college on Tuesday (sniff!).
And here is the birthday cake – Cookie dough delirium from Cold Stone. Mmmmmm!
There are a few missing pieces of cookie dough from the top. Let’s just say my shutter wasn’t fast enough…..
And they were really yummy.
Cold Stone Heaven.
I love what he says in the card. I hope it always seems like an adventure for us. Adventures are so much more fun than years passing. I love this man.
Also, I rented a lens this weekend from Arlington Camera. I thought I would try one of the big girl lenses (as in expensive). If I like it enough, I will rent it again for a wedding I am hired to photograph in a few weeks.
So far, I REALLY love it (of course!). Here are some random first images I took with it around the house.
Yes, poor guy needs a trim. He can see…..I think?
I, also, want to thank my bloggy friend Rommel for featuring my blog in his last post Travel Theme: Rhythm. He said some really nice things and I appreciate the recognition. Not to mention, I love his blog.
Hope you are all having a wonderful weekend.

I’ll bet the best gift of all is your loved and loving family! Your ten-year old lab has that same sad-eye look that our nine-year old lab gets. Makes me feel so guilty, like I’m not doing something I should be doing.
Most definitely!! I mentioned in a previous post how thrilled I was to have them home, after a week in Ohio, just in time for my birthday. 🙂
And my sweet girl Salem. She makes the most pitiful moans when standing up. Poor thing. Her hips are really getting stiff. I totally understand the guilt.
Happy Birthday, Angelia. And a whole lot more…
P.S. Your 10 year old lab looks a lot like our 13 year old lab – only our Marshall has a lot more grey. So cute.
My lab has been with me longer than any relationship. They sure are special animals. 🙂 Thank you so much!!
Happy Birthday! You see I have a telekenetic power. I featured you in time as a blogging present for you. Bwahahaha. 😀
Love, love all the pictures! Seriously, no baloney. I think you’ll be successful with that wedding. No need to wish good luck, so I say Have fun!
Happy Birthday Angelia! Woohoo! Sounds like a blast!
Happy belated birthday! :o)
Yay! Fun stuff. Where’s Brownie?
It looks like you had an amazing birthday! I’ve never had a cookie dough cake before, but it looks DELICIOUS!!
What sweet and thoughtful gifts – it looks like you had an amazing celebration filled with the love of your family. Happy Belated Birthday!! 🙂
Happy Birthday, Angelia – though I’m too late!
