Good Friends

Thank you so much for all of the sweet birthday wishes everyone!  Your fun comments on my blog and facebook pages just made my day.  Or should I say week!?  I am the queen of stretching my birthday out as loooooong as possible and this year was no different.  The festivities started Saturday and (much to my dismay) ended today.  But it was a fun while it lasted.  :)

I especially enjoyed dinner with my darling friends last night.  
(Some people ask the waiter for more water or diet coke.  I always ask the waiter to snap a picture.)

I am so lucky to have these girls in my life (and a few who couldn't make it and were missed!).
Really.  What fun is life without good good friends?
Friends who you can laugh with and cry with (a lot of times during the same conversation).
Friends who know you inside and out and love you unconditionally.
Friends who drop a little something off (a few cadbury eggs perhaps) just to give you a hug and say hello and make sure you are hanging in there.
Friends who would do anything for you.
That is how I would describe these girls.  
They are always there for me when I need them!



Time for a look back to celebrate my amazing friends.
Because that is tradition.  And I love a good tradition.

I love all of these girls so much.   
And it felt so good to spend last night laughing with them!  
Oh my word.  It doesn't take much to get us laughing.  

SO many of you reading have also been such a bright spot in my life. 
Some day I would love to meet and have dinner with all of my amazing blog friends as well.
 We would just need a bigger table.

:)  

I am one lucky girl.  
(Or should I say woman?  I am 36 now you know...)

Looks like such a fun birthday celebration. I like to stretch my birthday as long as I can too. :)

I hope we can do lunch someday. Hopefully during the summer. That would be so much fun.

Wishing you a fun birthday month. Go for the gusto. Cause it only comes around once a year!!!

Happy Birthday Erin! Your group is pretty enough, you need to write Andy Cohen and do the real housewives of San Diego! Please do it! Your group could showcase that you can be true friends and and be great housewives! Seriously talk to your friends and make a video to send to Andy! You guys would get a show! It could open alot of doors for you guys!

So much fun! Amazing girlfriends are the best! And I hope this year, after all your house building craziness slows down, we can finally meet and hang out :) ~gina

Looks like a great night. I am sure you had a blast. Make room for me at the blogging friends table whenever you have that dinner. I will come all the way to California to meet up!

Very fun night Erin. And here's to many more!

I love the comment about "The Housewives." We would be a very boring group I am afraid. No fighting, cheating, drama. We would be "The NORMAL Housewives of San Diego." Do you think people would watch? xoxo

Thank you so much everyone!

Anonymous - loved the real housewives of San Diego comment! Ha! I have to agree with Ann - we would be too boring! Not enough drama. Maybe a few tears shed over stressful days running after kids, but that's about it. :) You are sweet to suggest it though!
