Andrew turns 28!

Yesterday was Andrew's birthday and we were so thankful to be able to spend the day together. Lately, his work has been taking him out of town for more days of the week than he is home. Which stinks, but we are making it, one week at a time. We have learned so much and our marriage has grown stronger over these past few months. We know that God is teaching us something during this time and we are trying hard to see the lesson instead of having a pity party for ourselves. So we are thankful for days like yesterday :)

Andrew got his birthday present about a month or so ago when we went in our local golf store to "price" a new set of golf clubs. There was a deal we couldn't pass up and we both agreed to go ahead and get them then. So, as a reminder of his birthday present (I was afraid he would forget:-), I got him a golf themed cake (note the golf clubs on the back of the golf cart). I didn't realize that I had started a theme - last year he got Saints tickets and a Saints cake and this year, golf clubs and a golf cake. Andrew pointed this out to me last night. We will see how long we can keep that one going.

Andrew's mom has a family dinner/celebration planned for later this weekend so we decided to celebrate last night with a couple of our close friends. We went to a new Italian restaurant in town that we have been wanting to try-- it was fabulous! We especially loved the atmosphere on the outdoor patio/courtyard complete with a large hanging chandelier, faux grass wall, and large running fountain. The weather was perfect last night too. The food was wonderful but our appetizer was my favorite (picture below) - I guess I was too busy eating by the time our main course arrived to take a picture but it was all good.

Andrew & Kyle have been friends for a really long time and I love their friendship. Aren't they the cutest? Me and Heather are thankful that they brought us together. Look forward to celebrating many more occasions with them in years to come!
