First of all I want to thank everyone from the bottom of my heart for all the kind comments, prayers and emails I received from Friday's post. You sure are some incredible people. Thank you so much.

Friday I was excited when my gift arrived from my cousin - the girl can't keep a secret so I knew what it was! She had a canvas made (of one of my favorite photos!) and turned it into a clock!
Saturday was a BEAUTIful day, hot, sunny - incredible. Justin came home from errands with these for me! Love them. The house is full of fresh flowers as I received some from Mom and Dad and family friends too! Lucky girl.
Cruz and I went for a nice long walk and she posed for some photos.
Yes I have the cutest dog ever made.
After dinner we went to Menchies! My only request for my birthday was frozen yogurt! :) We sat in the back of the Xterra and chowed down. Cruz too! I love that place.
Sunday Justin was up early and headed riding with Mr. D. Someone was invited in bed with me for a little birthday cuddle.
Who me?
Mom this is the life!
What? We should get up?
Sunday morning Cruz and I went for a run, then Leigh and I went to the Bearspaw Farmers market (she also spoiled me with a gift basket of all my favorite things!), then I did a little yoga and cleaned the house.
Modeling my new necklace from Egypt from Grampa & Chris.
It's so neat, the symbols spell my name and all have a meaning. Love it.
When Justin came home we cleaned the deck and prepped for dinner.
My birthday evening was perfect. My Mom made me the most special photobook. It is all old photos - it is really amazing. I LOVE it!! Tears may have been shed.
Jeff and Jolie spoiled me with a keurig!
Crystal knit me a bracelet with wire! How cool is that?!
And they got me a pretty dress that I can't wait to try on tonight!!
The whole gang. I LOVE these people so much!!!
Justin BBQ'd a feast! Ribs of course! 
Jeff also made his famous grilled shrimp & Guac for appies as per my request! nom nom.
Another tea pot for my collection! :) Love it Nana.
DQ cake time! yum.
Crystal made this! :)
Emerson painted me a card too. So cute!
So thank you to EVERYONE for making my day so great yesterday and making me feel so loved. I am constantly reminded of how lucky I am.
Thank you Al & Nicole for your special posts too. :) Blew me away.
PS. Thank you Mom for taking all the photos!!

Oh geeze... I have soo much to say and such a small space! haha! Love the necklace, bracelet and dress, as well as the dress you wore for your b-day! We were celebrating your birthday as well yesterday with a rib dinner - pretty funny that we had the same meal - only a bit telepathic! haha. So glad you had a great birthday and I just have a great feeling that this year is going to take a turn for the best ;)
