My Birthday Weekend :)

I had an amazing birthday weekend thanks to my wonderful hubby & family! In the weeks leading up to my birthday, I was so uncertain as what I wanted to do.  I knew we were going to the Alan Jackson concert but I wasn't too sure what else to do since that wasn't specifically for my birthday. So we just ended up going to dinner with my family and ate yummy cupcakes. Perfect. Simple. Amazing.

My hubby & family had also been asking me for weeks what I wanted for my birthday and I came up with nothing.  After going through all I've gone through in the past 3 months, material possessions mean absolutely nothing to me. I'll be honest and admit that I use to love nice "things". My closet is filled with name brand purses and designer jeans, thats just who I was. My hubby spoiled me like crazy and I liked it. But, a few days after I was diagnosed I sat in our closet (my favorite praying spot) and just cried and cried and cried. Here I was surrounded with everything I could ever want but I have cancer and all these "things" mean absolutely nothing. Don't get me wrong these "things" didn't consume me...I've always been a huge family person and always about making memories but I think this cancer has put my life into perspective.  Im so very thankful for that.  The littlest things mean the most to me know...and Ive learned quickly thats the way life should should have always been that way and I feel lucky Im given this opportunity to realize that.

Anyway here are some pictures of my fun birthday weekend.

Friday after radiation we headed down to LA Live to hang out & eat before the concert.
