My 17th Birthday

Thursday was my birthday! I had a wonderful day. The morning and afternoon were very relaxing, and for dinner we went to Olive Garden. It was neat the way that came about. The past several years we have gone to IHOP for my birthday, but this year I kind of wanted to go to Olive Garden. I hadn't said anything about it at all, because it's pretty expensive. Then, the day Brandon left, he gave us a gift from his parents. It was an Olive Garden gift card! I love it when God does things like that. The meal was wonderful, probably the best I've ever eaten! Then I came home and opened my presents. :) Probably the thing I got that I had wanted the most was a new Bible. I had wanted one that was smaller and easier to carry around. I also got a new overhead light for my room, some cute shirts, a purse, earings, and lots of sweet cards! Here are a few pictures, because in my life, no event is quite complete without them. :)
