Way Back When-esday- 25 is a thing of the past...

I celebrated my 26th birthday this past Monday. It was a great day spent with family and friends. I had both a lunch and dinner celebration at two of my favorite places to eat. Not a bad thing for a pregnant woman!

I know that year 26 is going to be the best one yet and I cannot wait to see all that it holds in store!

For this edition of "Way Back When-esday," we're looking back to last years 25th birthday celebration. I spent it with some great friends at Broadway Pizza Bar in Kissimmee. So much has changed since then, for example...

The couple on the far left is Joel and Randa. They had just had their second son Archer who just celebrated his first birthday. Hard to even think about that big boy fitting in that little tiny carrier.

The next couple is Mike and Heather. All three of their kiddos- Tucker, Lexie, and Lilah have more than doubled in size. I loved that Tucker joined us for this celebration and helped me blow out my candles!

Then there's Rich and I. Where do I even begin?! I'm pregnant, we're about to welcome our first child into the world, I am not anywhere near that tan, or skinny, and I am quite certain those amazing heels have not fit on my swollen feet in months! As for Rich, well he's still smiling!

Next up is Keith and Kelly. They are now married and loving every minute of it! We also asked them to be Cooper's Godparents so I am sure that they will be around for many many more birthdays.

Lastly, there's Ashleigh and Brandon. They just recently got engaged and we are so excited for them! Needless to say, this next year will hold many festivities in their honor.

While many things have changed, one thing has remained the same, we're the best of friends! For this and so much more, I am so grateful!

Play along with Cheryl at Twinfatuation... it's so much fun to reminisce!
