Birthdays over the past 5 years....

8:35 AM

I was looking through old photos yesterday getting very nostalgic and thought I would write some memories out from past birthdays. Facebook only goes back to 2007 so that's about as far back as my picture memories goes back. Makes me sad because I used to have tons of pics on Myspace but I took them all off, bummer!

30 : 
Last year I had a "surprise" birthday dinner which my friend,Kirstin, accidentally told me about. Ha. Earlier in that day my mom, sister, sister-in-law and I all went and had massages.

 My son was 4 months old this birthday and I remember we were broke. That happens when you have a baby and stop working, ha ha. My mom took us for massages and facials! Thus the cap....Ahhhh! 

Palm Springs with my new husband when we were both working and went on TONS of trips. So glad we did that too! 

 Daniel took me to Las Vegas for dinner {we lived close enough to drive}and surprised me and took me to see Mama Mia. We were too new in our relationship to take pics I guess?

My grandmother was really sick on this birthday, so this was a hard time. It was a Black and White Party at my parents house. It was still fun.

When we were living in Northern Ireland we took a holiday to Spain and it happened to be over my birthday! So fun!

I also found this list I had done back in 2005 so I thought I would do it again. My lists in 2005 were MUCH more exciting, but this is how life goes sometimes;) You can read that one here if you want.
