August is finally here and I couldn't be happier; July seemed to last F O R E V E R.
With stress at work and then my car dying on me, I am glad to see this month go.
Even though it's only the second day of the month, I know it's going to be a fabulous 31 days.
Because this weekend was amazing.
This weekend was Kaylee's birthday dinner and we celebrated until they kicked us out (literally). The night started off with a fancy dinner at The Manship. I ordered the pepperoni pizza because that's how original I am.
The main event of the dinner was a $12 dollar drink called a Knickerbocker.
It was worth every penny just getting to say that word to the waiter.
At dinner, Kaylee opened her gifts and I was super ready to give her mine. With a voucher code from Active.com, I was able to go on Shutterfly and create a birthday book for Kaylee.
However, the gift would not have been possible without all the girls' help, so I was so excited when they were more than willing to text me pictures and paragraphs about their friendship with Kaylee.
I took a play on her last name and called the book:
The Birthday Weaver
After dinner, we went to Deep South Pops - I ordered chocolate gelato and a Sprite. Fun fact: I cannot eat ice cream without something to drink. It was delicious and just what we all needed since it is 90+ degrees after 9 pm here in Mississippi.

I received this text today and it makes the gift even better:
"Cassie, you know me so well. I have carried this book everywhere with me.
Every time I read it, I cry…love you so much."
Even though we didn't meet any celebrities this year, we made the birthday girl feel famous/loved and I think that's what matters most.
Thanks for weaving each one of us together, Kaylee.
Our lives are better because we know you.
