My Birthday!

My birthday was back in September... September 27th to be exact :)
But I just wanted to post real quick about it because my friends are so sweet.
I've always grown up knowing about your "golden birthday", 
which is when you turn the age of the date of your birthday...
i.e.  Turning 27 on the 27th!

Well it was my Golden Birthday this year!  
I thought it would be so fun to throw a big golden-themed bash...
but as my previous post told you, 
my birthday kind of fell in the middle of a busy season for all of us.
I knew throwing another party would maybe be more of a burden than a blessing.

BUT my friends planned a surprise party for me anyway!
(Disclaimer:  I think I've gotten the reputation that I'm the kind of person who likes/needs surprise parties... But I'm not!  I totally appreciate them, but I'm totally fine without them!  If being thought of were a love language, that would be mine.  So I love to know that people are thinking of me, whether it be through a simple text, a card, or a planned event.  I just don't want to have the reputation of being high maintenance, lol!)
Needless to say, it was sooo sweet!  

We walked into lifegroup, and it was actually my birthday party!
Here are some pictures:

Poufs always add life to a party! :)

There was a golden wall for pictures!

I also had fun that day going to breakfast with sweet friends, getting a massage, going to lunch (for free!) with my friend Jessica, and celebrating the night before with Andy by going out to dinner at a fun hotel in Scottsdale.
Me and my man out to dinner.

Beautiful AZ night.

My sweet Emmy friend!

and Gracie Goo!

Love celebrating with girlfriends, old and new!

I love all things FREE!
