Emily's Birthday!

Last night was the birthday party for one of my BFF's Emily.  I wasn't feeling very festive after a REALLY long day at work.  So, I got a quick nap to give me some energy before getting all dolled up and heading out.

And as I anticipated, as soon as I walked in the door, I was so glad to be there.  I hadn't seen Emily, April, and Sarah in a while, so it was so great to get to catch up with them. It's the one thing (well, one of the things...) I hate about summer-- everyone is gone so much that it's impossible for our whole group to get together.

We such a blast celebrating our dear Emily's birthday.  There was a pretty good crowd of about 12 people, which made playing the "Game of Things" hilarious.  If y'all haven't played it, I highly recommend it.  Apples to Apples is still my fave party game, but this one was super fun too.

April surprised Emily with a piece of chocolate mousse cake (her favorite).

And the tradition of Emily drinking wine out of a candle holder continues...  No, I'm not kidding.  And yes, it was washed first.

And our friends Debbie and Lance brought over their 8 day old son, Knox.  Eight days old!! Y'all-- he was the cutest thing EVER.  He was born a few weeks early, so he is TINY-- less than six pounds.  

He was so good and slept the entire time they were there despite the crowd getting louder as the evening wore on.  So, Emily may have gotten slightly overshadowed at her own party, but I think she was more than fine with it to hang out with this cutie.  

Then sadly, I had to leave around midnight because I had to work today.  Bummer.  But all in all, it was a fantastic night.  

Happy birthday, Emily!!
