July 20th

Sunday was my birthday. I don’t usually go proclaiming that around just cause I don’t really care if people know. I did mention it to one of my co-workers a few weeks ago, and then it just sort of got around and suddenly I had a delicious cake on Friday at work. I’m definitely not complaining. Now that you all know, you’re free to send me a cake…just putting that out there.

We had 8AM church on Sunday, so Philip started the celebrating at lunch time, making a really delicious lunch for both of us, and then giving me a wonderful back massage!

After a nice Sunday nap, we headed over to Philip’s sister’s house. Philip said she thought he was incapable of making a good birthday dinner, so they made us a delicious dinner of steak, mashed potatoes, and green beans. Mmmm…

Here’s some pictures from present time and Funfetti cupcakes!!!

  4. Oh my gosh, Merrick! HAPPY BIRTHDAY! I still kind of can’t believe that you’re only 21! You must just be super mature because I always feel like 2 years younger than you. Anyways, happy birthday and let me know when you wanna do lunch. Zupas maybe?
