Birthday Girl


It's St. Patty's Day, which means my sweet baby celebrates another birthday! My now 19 year old baby! She's out tonight partying it up, Irish-like…with her sister and some friends from work. They boogied on up to Indy to eat some "real" Luck O' the Irish cuisine. She called ahead just to make sure it wasn't a bar and that they could actually dine there since they are all under 21.

Oh to be a sweet young thing!

This morning, I jumped out of bed and hit the floor running. I had several last minute things to do in order to throw a HOME party honoring the birthday girl. The problem….I woke up very early but forced myself to fall back asleep and didn't wake up until 11:30am! I NEVER SLEEP THAT LATE, EVER!! So, it jolted me back to the real world when I checked the clock. Yikes!

Ally loves cinnamon rolls and I just so happened upon a delicious recipe of Mini Cinnamon Rolls yesterday. I quick-like whipped up a batch and took off for the store. I wanted to make a great lunch and surprise her with her most favorite caramel brownies (I made them last night and hid them in the downstairs fridge). So, the party was a hit with Pot pie & Caramel brownies all mixed up with awesome presents! 

I think she was quite happy!

Happy Birthday, Ally! I sure do love you!!
