So...yesterday was my birthday...and I turned 23!! It was a very special day but I was still bummed that I didn't get to see my family.

Here's how it all went down....

Kim brought me a salted caramel and chocolate cupcake to work for lunch....it melted in her car but it was still delicious! She even had an awesome candle and the Chipettes sang me happy birthday haha!!

Kim and Ashley came with Tim and I to dinner at the Cheesecake Factory (hence the title of this post). I opened my gifts before we left.

J.Crew Chain Link Pave Bracelet :) from my parents...it's so sparkly!!

from Gabby (she's so crafty!) and sneaky. I mentioned a few months ago that I would love a quilt to match my living room and showed her some on my Pinterest. Little did I know she was actually making me one! 

Its all my favorite colors :D

Wearing it as a cape..

Cheesecake Factory time...after we got out of the monsoon that came through RVA haha
Yummy meatloaf, taters and corn succotash. (3 meals worth)

Fresh banana cream cheesecake!! It was amazing!

My blurry birthday treat. Mini ice cream sundae.

Me, Kim and Ashley

Me and Tim 

Tim got me another cake with strawberries on top that we have yet to eat....oh and he owes me a puppy :D
