Best Birthday

My sister, Erin, came down this weekend for my birthday celebration and to do a little wedding dress shopping. Originally, I was very nervous and thought that I might be sabotoging the day. Somehow, with a little hope, a little planning, and a positive attitude the day was one of those perfect days you don't want to end. We started at a bridal boutique up the street from my house that graciously served mimosas. Erin tried on four beautiful dresses. Each dress was different and stunning. Amongst all the wedding bliss and mimosas; however, we picked out the top two dresses without discussing designers or price. Ha! Then, we headed to my favorite sushi place. Mmmm...spicy tuna rolls and the firecracker roll. With the 40 degree weather and sunshine, it was like reliving fond memories from the summer. Next, we visited the bridal shop from which I purchased my gown. It brought back more good memories. Erin even had the same consultant! It was at Ida's Erin found her dress. Although she did have to sleep on the decision, we went back the next day and made the big purchase. After the great success in wedding dress shopping, we did a little shopping and ended the day with a great Italian feast at Garozzo's. Justin was so sweet and continued to surprise me with little gifts of chocolate and Penzy's Spices. I am so thankful to have such a great husband and family. Thank you to everyone who was here to celebrate, the lovely birthday cards, and phone calls. It was truly a special day!
