I turned 27 on Saturday and entered my late twenties with grace and dignity. :)

Mr. & Mrs. Grizzle helped us celebrate by coming to town. We had a great time despite Ben's mom not feeling well. Poor thing had pneumonia and we didn't even know it. She was a trooper the whole weekend. We had a great time with them and I appreciate them making me feel extra special on my special day.

Ben made me a big breakfast Saturday morning. After we stuffed ourselves, Marley gave me the cutest card ever and I opened presents from Ben (a yard flag I have been eyeing for some time now) and his parents (a pearl bracelet and handy dandy notebook for my purse that I love - she knows me so well!) We spent the day shopping for a sewing machine (my birthday present), ate lunch at O'Carr's and loafed in my favorite stores. We had planned to go to Davenport's for dinner but at 4:30 I was pooped and was ready to go home. So, in true Jamie Fashion, we rented a movie, ordered a pizza and ate some cookie cake at home. It was a great day!

Oh....WAIT! I almost forgot! When we arrived home that afternoon there was a package waiting on our front porch from my sweet Sister. She was able to score an autographed mousepad from Kirk Herbstreit himself as a birthday present for me. He tans at the place she was working this summer and while he was acquiring his pre-football season glow, she ran to Buckeye Corner and bought a mousepad for him to sign. Isnt' she the best?!?! She knows how much I love him. Not only is he an ex-Ohio State quarter back, but he is on my "list". You know...like the one Ross laminated? haha.

Nice tan, Kirk!
