A very good birthday :)

First of all, THANK YOU for all of the sweet comments you guys left yesterday! You have no idea how much all 55 of them meant to me!

I had such a great birthday!!! :) I had a very fun day at school, the weather was gorgeous, just as I like it, Mom and the girlies brought me lunch and balloons (can you tell that AC picked out the balloons? :) She wanted to get me the heart because "heart means love and I love my sissy!")

Dad was supposed to be out of town, but he surprised me and came home a day early so that he could be home for my birthday. :) Drew met all of us at Bri*xx, which was delicious... sitting outside (it was a beautiful 75 degree day!!!) by the fountain made it even better! :)

We were sad that Will couldn't join, but he did call me, and he's coming home tomorrow for the Easter weekend!

Mom and the girls made my favorite cake for desert, and then I got to open my present-- the Ni*kon D*5000! I put all of my birthday money toward it from Mom and Dad and all my relatives, plus put a good chunk of money I've been saving for it... but it was so worth it :) I LOVE it so far!!!!

The day ended by seeing The La*st So*ng with some of my best friends (it was so nice having my birthday right before spring break... no homework!) The movie was so good and a great way of ending a perfect birthday :)

Thank you again for all of your sweet comments... it was so fun hearing from some of you who I never even knew read my blog... and of course, those frequent commenters, too!
