My Birthday-

Well as of the day before yesterday I'm an adult. Yes, that's right I'm offically eighteen.

I was on the phone with Boo a couple days before my birthday and I asked Boo, "If I was ancient at seventeen how old will I be at eighteen?"

She silently thought about it for about 3 whole minutes and replied solemnly, "Audrey, when your eighteen you will be super-duper ancient."

Well Boo I appreciate the heads up. So apparently I'm super duper ancient. Does that mean I'm halfway in the grave then.

On my birthday I went to one of my favorite restaurants; Olive Garden, with my cousin Amy. When we got back boy I was in for a surprise. Grandma and Amy's little girl Trina jumped out from behind the doorway and yelled as they blew confetti at me,"SUPRISE!!!!!" In the hour that we were gone for Trina and grandma had put up streamers ALL over the house, put up a HAPPY BIRTHDAY banner and had a cake sitting on the table that had cursive writing on it spelling out "Happy Birthday Audrey!!"
I miss the littles soo much though!! I called them on my birthday and they sang Happy Birthday to me. Then all the little ones got on and told me how much they miss me and Happy Bithday!

Team Emma: Help Save A Life

Amy of Resourceful Mommy is asking for your help in meeting her fund raising goal for Team Emma in the annual March for Babies walk to benefit the March of Dimes. As the mother of a preemie, Amy has experienced the blessings and benefits of this organization firsthand, stating:

When our first child, Emma, was born two months early, we had no idea the challenges we would face and the support we would need. The March of Dimes provided us with information, answers, and emotional support through what was the toughest time of our lives. The technology they helped discover not only saved Emma’s life, but it helped me to carry my second child to full term. We’re walking to give EVERY baby their full 9 months…

You can read their story HERE. They will be grateful for any donation you are able to make. You can donate by clicking the link or by using the widget that’s posted on my sidebar.
