One thing you should know about me: I love to "make the presents, MAKE the presents!" (that was a FRIENDS quote, if you you're not as obsessed with the show as I am). 

It's not unusual for me to make a card or gift myself, and this year, the majority of my birthday gifts were made for me! This makes me very happy :)

Check out some of my awesome "made with love" birthday presents!




1.scarf and headbands knitted (or crocheted.. I don't know the difference) by my sister-in-law.  2. Photos of my gorgeous nieces that live all the way in Oregon!  3. Art by Deci and Journey (my nieces).  4. Chocolate pie from Hilde.  5. Lilly sketched card by my talented mother who usually sends me lillies on my birthday but couldn't this year because I was out of town.

I also got some gift cards (always a good gift choice) to one of my favorite restaurants and one of my favorite stores, a cookie cake, and a fancy birthday dinner out thanks to my dad.  In addition to all of that, I was baked an amazing cobbler by one of my favorite co-workers. :) 

All that to say, I felt very loved on my 28th birthdayweek.
