They Say it’s your Birthday

Last weekend was my birthday. I turned 31. And, while turning another year older wasn’t fun, my birthday was a blast thanks to my awesome hubby and family.

My birthday celebration started on Friday morning with our traditional breakfast at Wes-Man’s, a favorite local place of ours.


The owner of the restaurant has a truck outside that he paints every day with peoples’ names and other messages. Every year, Joe calls to have my name painted on the truck. For the last two years, it rained and the truck wasn’t able to be painted. This year, the weather was clear, and this is what was on the truck:


Yes, the name “Cody” is supposed to be mine. After two years of not being on the truck, my name was spelled wrong! Yet another funny story to tell. Lucy made sure to point the mistake out to us.


On Saturday, we headed to Chattanooga to see my family and, since Joe had to work on Sunday, his parents made the long drive up as well. We had a lot of fun, and Lucy had a blast playing soccer with Harrison. I love seeing her spend time with her cousins.

Oh yeah, and there were presents. Joe got me a Pandora bracelet, which I have been wanting FOREVER, along with a bear charm to represent Lucy. His parents got me a cat charm to represent our three monsters.

And, my parents gave me enough money to cover most of the cost of a Silhouette SD cutter, which I plan to use for my new side business (more on that coming soon!).


I was pretty shocked and surprised with everything.


Poor Lucy was in the corner, and I didn’t realize she was trying to see what I was opening!


I keep telling Joe I don’t know how he will beat this birthday next year. But, I know he’ll think of something. He always does. 🙂
