The SurpriseYesterday I promised a surprise, so here it is... Since I'm going to lose all my hair in a few weeks, I decided to dye it a fun color! I called my amazing stylist Teddi, and she helped me pick out something fun an different. On Thursday I had it colored and I absolutely love it!! What do you think?!
Since today's my birthday, my super amazing husband threw me a party last night. At the beginning of the evening, he gave me a little booklet:
I named my cancer Karl, so the book was a "choose your own adventure" story about killing my cancer, Karl. Here's an example:
So the whole night, I read through the book and got to choose what we did next. Our first stop was dinner at Moe & Johnny's (a bar/restaurant where we had our first "date" and that we love to go to). When we got there, a big group of my friends were there - seriously, like 25 people! Best. Friends. Ever.
The rest of the night we went to different bars and had an awesome night. Here are a few pictures of our adventures:
|My good friends Brian and Mandy|
|Some of the greatest gals I know - Holly, Erin, and Brett Michaels|
|This group of people makes me so happy.|
|My friends Neil and Ryan (who came all the way from Northern Indiana!)|
|Obligatory birthday shot with Lee and Ryan.|
|And my FAVORITE picture of the night with the love of my life, Josh.|
Thank you to all who came out to celebrate. It was such a fun way to end the long week of tests I had and a perfect way to kick off my 30s! Thankfully I felt pretty good all night. I got a little sore right at the end of the night at my bone marrow biopsy site and am feeling it this morning, but overall I felt great!
Glad you had a great Birthday and that you have Josh for a husband. He takes great care of my baby and he's creative too! I couldn't have found a better match for you. By the way, the hair is growing on me! Happy Birthday!ReplyDelete
