Birthday and Bloggers

On Tuesday, I turned 31. Lily, woke me up with our traditional birthday donuts. The other two loves were still sleeping, and in the McWhorter home, we NEVER wake a sleeping baby/child. :)

That night, I had made plans to meet up with some other fellow bloggers for dinner. But, before I left, I made sure to open some great gifts from my girls.

Maggie had just woken up from her nap. Yes, at 5:30 p.m. I told you, we do not wake our amazing sleepers. HA!

I love these two!!

So, back to the dinner. A couple of months ago, I met my sweet friend, Missy, through the ever so crazy blogging world. We have only met up once for a play date, but I feel like we are life long friends. So, she had this brilliant idea to put together a dinner with other Houston bloggers. Who doesn't like a night out with girls, to meet people that you know, but that you really don't know?! Does that make sense? Anyway....it was SO much fun! We laughed until we cried and then we laughed some more!! I met some of the greatest and funniest girls. We had a fabulous time and I am pretty sure I made some life long friendships.

Before dinner, I met up with my real, life long friend, Callie. We have known each other since kindergarten. She has one precious little boy, Carson, and is pregnant with identical twin girls!!! Oh, my goodness! I am SO excited!

All the girls!


Sweet friends...
Lindsee, Missy, and Debra

Girls, thank you so much for such a great night! Such a fun, fun way to spend my 31st b-day (even if I didn't tell any of you!) The laughter was exactly what I needed and the new friendships were even greater! I cannot wait until we do it again...very soon!!
