Another Year Older

Happy Thursday everyone! 
I am so sorry for being such a bad blogger recently.  I don't know where all my time is going.  So last Friday was my birthday and it was such a wonderful day, well except for the laundry part. :)  We had a wonderful dinner at a local seafood restaurant that was recommended to us by a mom at L's gym.  DH and the girls got me tickets to see my absolute favorite band in concert in October.  Can't wait!  This song gives me chills every time I hear it.
Then, because it was a long weekend we headed up to WI to visit my parents.  Had such a wonderful time and even got a surprise visit from my Great Aunt Martha.  She is still just as sweet as always.  My earliest memories of her are of how happy she always was.  What a dear, sweet woman. :)  We took the girls to the fair and helped my mom in her garden.  My poor kids, they adore helping her in the garden and nibbling on the fresh veggies but alas, they will never get that at home.  :)  Good reason to look forward to visiting Grandma and Grandpa right? That will be my excuse. :)  Truth be told, I am just not a gardening person...veggies or flowers.

i am so jealous! Third Day is one of the bands I've been trying to see for a good long while now and I can just never seem to make it work. But oh how I love them too! Have a wonderful time anticipating the concert!

Happy, happy belated birthday, Lisa!
Sounds like you had a lovely day, and with the upcoming concert, you get to spread the celebration for quite some time.
Love your back to school themed gift set. Such great colors and papers. Love the blocked design and love the stars.
Wishing you a lovely weekend. :)
