Good Friends. Blackberry Cobbler. New Earrings.

When I woke up this morning, I got out of bed all sleepy-eyed and groggy. I trudged into the kitchen, and *BING*, I was wide awake. I spotted the treasure chest sitting on the table.

My husband is awesome. When your day starts out like this, it's going to be a good great day!

I'm also proud to announce, Avery has had her first taste of the delicious goodness that is Jolly Pirate. Andy broke off half of a blueberry doughnut ("It's got fruit in it, so it can't be that bad... Right?"), and she went to town!

In the past, I've been notorious for celebrating my Birthday Week. This year, I've shortened it down to just a Birthday Weekend. So, since today was the last day of this wonderful weekend, the Caudill's went across the street to the Harrison's, for one more birthday celebration.

We had pork tenderloin, baked potatoes, corn on the cob, and a super fresh salad. For dessert, we they had watermelon ( I don't eat watermelon... ever), and Kim made a blackberry cobbler, which was divine. My mom joined us for the final birthday festivities too! AND, I got another present! The Harrison's got me some super cute Brighton earrings. I put them on right then and there.

I don't usually dig the self-portrait pictures, but I have so few with just me and my girl (because I'm usually behind the camera).

So, thank you Howard & Kim (and you too, Ali), for the wonderful food, my new earrings, and great fellowship. I love you all and am very thankful you're in our lives (and across the street).

Have a great day!
