I'm grateful for YES's in life and I'm grateful for NO's in life as well. God uses them both to teach me to desperately hang onto Him and only Him in life!
On a completely different note... this past weekend I celebrated turning the BIG THREE-ZERO!!! Maybe I should feel "old" but I don't. Funny how my perspective changes as I get older and what I once considered "old" keeps getting bumped up! I mean after all, it's a known fact that 30 is the new 20 anyway, right (Just go with it, it makes me feel better!)?!
Well my hubby totally outdid himself and planned an entire day full of birthday surprises, from my friend Joely coming into town, to a big surprise dinner that night with some of my closest friends and my family! It truly was a great birthday and I was way impressed with Joshua's sneaky secret ways he planned everything! If you know Joshua at all, he can't lie to save his life... so the fact that he was able to plan so much behind my back without me knowing was seriously impressive! I sat there most of the night, wheels turning in my head, contemplating how everything came together and how I didn't find out- it's a funny thing to be at a party and not have planned a lick of it! I'm so thankful for a husband who goes out of his way to make me feel special!
I wish I would have taken more pictures of everyone at the party- but I was having such a fun time I forgot to! Here's a couple that I did manage to get though!
|Joely came in town from OK to surprise me!|
|My sis made her incredible cupcakes and brought them to the restaurant. Jude man helped me blow out my candles!|
|Joely, my sister and I- they keep a good secret!|
|Some of my sweet friends that came to surprise me! I think I got a little teary when I saw everyone's faces who were there, I was genuinely taken back by everyone being there!|
