Birthday Fun & Peek at My Week

Sunday I celebrated my 30th birthday.  But thanks to my husband, we celebrated all week!

Justin took me to Chicago for my birthday.  We left Wednesday night and drove to my parents house to drop off Cooper for the weekend.  Then, we flew into Chicago EARLY Thursday morning.  Here are a few of the highlights of our Thursday through Saturday birthday trip!

Dinner at RPM Italian (Giuliana and Bill Rancic's restaurant)...

Night Cruise on Chicago River and Lake Michigan with some fantastic views of the city!


Strolls around the Navy Pier...


Tour of Wrigley Field...



We also went to a White Sox game, but didn't take any pics.  Justin has a "life goal" :) of seeing all Major League Baseball games, so we had to find a way to visit both stadiums while in town!

Buckingham Fountain...

...and lots of shopping on Michigan Avenue!  This is a picture of the ceiling in Macy's on Michigan Avenue.  They just don't make retail stores like this anymore! Ha!!

Getting to see this crazy kid on Sunday just made my birthday even better, though!  And watching him love on and play with my Mamaw Joye just melted my heart!

Back at home and all in our own beds Sunday night...Cooper with 9 of his stuffies with him {2 can't be seen in this picture.}

Labor Day was spent at home just the 3 of us with no plans whatsoever!  Sometimes, those holidays are the best, aren't they?!?

What a wonderful, wonderful way to spend my birthday!  And now, with my birthday behind me, it's time to start thinking about first grade again!  So, here is a peek at my week.

And since I'm still having technical difficulties getting my Mac to cooperate with links on my PDFs{!!!!}, I'm just uploading a picture again.  Visit my store to find the products, or click the text links below!
