Surprise Party For Me!

My friend Whitney made a delicious cake!

My friend Emily was nice enough to throw me a birthday party at her house last Sunday.  It was really fun to get together with friends and enjoy some good food plus a really good birthday cake!  It was supposed to be a surprise but I knew something was up when Emily called asking me "um so, where's your favorite place to shop?"  The girls put together some cash and a gift card for me which was awesome!  I am still deciding on what to use it on and have made a vow not to spend it on my kids.  I haven't had an a birthday cake in 4 years so I was really happy to have one this year!  In dental school we always seemed to be traveling on the 2nd, or just going out to eat with friends so that is why I have not had a cake for so long!  And this is kind of sad but I haven't had an actually party thrown for me since I turned 18.  Nick isn't one to plan anything beyond going to a restaurant, so maybe I should start demanding a cake and party from here on out!  Anyways, I just wanted to add a thank you to everyone who came over to celebrate my birthday with me :)  I'm lucky to know such great people here in Memphis!
