Another Year Older

Happy Birthday To Me

Today I turn the ripe old age of 27. For some reason this birthday has not been as exciting to me as other birthdays. Maybe because im pregnant or maybe I just feel old.. who knows.

I love taking time on my birthday to look back to the year, I had.

My parents came up yesterday to celebrate with hubbster and I. It was a rainy nasty day, but we had a great time sitting around drinking tea and hot chocolate and chatting. We had a delicious lunch complete with homemade mac and cheese, hot dogs, and teriyaki chicken AND my mom made a delicious red velvet cake for me. yummmmm.

My parents surprised me with a WONDERFUL birthday gift.

I absoultely love it! They took an old dresser painted it black, put wheels on it and made the top of it a cutting board! I can wheel it around my kitchen and use it as a butcher's block, and have storage for all my linens and holiday plates. I absolutely love it, and the black goes perfectly with our kitchen.


  1. Happy Birthday! That is a beautiful gift! Thanks for stopping by and thanks for the compliments on my kids. I think my kiddos are adorable too! :-)

  2. Happy Birthday! I'll be 27 next month.

    And thanks for dropping by my blog! We have a big ole truck but unfortunately just drove my car that day so I couldn't bring home all the goodies I wanted! lol

  3. What a great gift and what a great way to repurpose a dresser!
