THANK YOU!

Feelin' the love,
On Sunday, I turned 35. That is a big number... except when I think about my oldest sister who turned 50 two days earlier! (he he, sorry Nancy).

So, I just had to blog about the last few days -- everyone has been so kind to call, e-mail, stop by, or come by to wish me happy birthday. It is so wonderful to feel loved. So, THANK YOU!!! And, the gifts have truly been considerate ones -- things that only a friend who knows me would know I'd love! So, THANK YOU!

The biggest thanks goes to Dave. He did it again. For my 25th birthday, he proposed to me. For my 30th birthday, he surprised me with a weekend with my college roommates all flying out to California. Now, for my 35th, we had about 20 dear friends and family over for dinner and games. Just my type of party. Dave made a delicious dinner -- baked rigatoni and meatballs. We played Drawing Charades (a Groberg tradition), and had a great time just visiting. I had to share a few pics from the night.


Okay, so also, I got some fun stuff in the mail -- one of my favorites was this cute card from my sister Jane -- she is so great about keeping up with ALL the birthdays in our family -- and we have a BIG family! Here it is!

And, finally, today, the postman delivered my present from myself... :) So fun!

We have the same countertop! The brown granite-look-a-like kind. Cool! The dinner party looks awesome. I wish I lived around the corner from you. Or weren't we going to live next door to each other and share a joint kitchen? Happy birthday!

H.B.D. Jennie!

So glad you have such a fun celebration. It's hard to feel like you're spoiled on your birthday when you're a mom - looks like you accomplished it though!

Happy Birthday!!! For reals this time, not like the fake one on facebook. Dang, I'm bad at remembering dates. Oh well, at least I got the month right.

Happy big 3-5!
