Yesterday It Was My Birthday...Hung One More Year On the Line

Actually it was last Wednesday.  Turned 29 yet again : )  Wanna see what I got?

Flowers from Erik and my sister Casey...

A little wine from my little sister...


A lovely selection of reproduction tea cups from my parents...


Some fuel from my friends Rudy and Elizabeth that is already being put to good use...


Some pretty earrings from my NaNa and a little cash from my Nanna and Grandaddy (going to new tennis shoes)... 


A date night from my sister-in-law and her husband...


A fall decoration/work-in-progress from my brother and his wife...

A new bedding set from my husband...


And last but not least, the goods from my in-laws...


I tried really hard to only spend part of that gift certificate and save the rest, but I just have absolutely no self-control.  It's sad, really.  I'm looking forward to a really fun package! 

I also ordered a few things for myself which are yet to arrive.
1) Some relaxing bath stuff.  The Spongelle was mentioned on PW's blog and I caved to temptation and some Tree Hut salt body scrub.  A girl's gotta do what she can to get through dental school.

2) Elizabeth's book which I am still eagerly awaiting.  It'll really be a "you're almost to the end of the semester, you can do it!" present since it comes out in November, but we'll call it a birthday present to myself to make it sound better.

It was casually celebrated Wednesday night with Taco Cabana takeout at my parent's house and a cake Erik made.  Friday night, we all went out to this really cool catfish joint in the middle of nowhere called Fish Camp and got to have their absolutely amazing Pecan Praline Bread Pudding.  YUM.  I mean it's heaven.  Here's a picture from their menu.


  They have a great band that plays just about anything and we danced and sang along.  We had a great time!  Today we celebrated at my Nanna and Grandaddy's house and watched the Cowboy game. 

The end.
