My Birthday Night

I had a really great Birthday!  Mark took me to a fabulous restaurant and we had a wonderful time!  The only thing that could have made it better would have been to spend it with my family and friends!  I miss you guys!

Here I am at the restaurant (btw, I got that dress for $24.99 at Target about a month ago -love it).  Oh...what's that you notice?  The necklace?  I bet you would like a closer look. ;)

Well, this man...the love of my life...

completely surprised me with this:

A beautiful vintage diamond necklace (yes, those are black diamonds...I have a thing for black)!!  Which I was completely not expecting.  He led me to believe that I was getting this:

Which I would have been THRILLED with, but I definitely preferred the necklace! :)

And here we are, the happy couple.  Can you believe we've been together since we were 15?! (well, mostly.)  I absolutely love this man!

Making a birthday wish...I have so much to be thankful for!  I am so looking forward to this next year!
