She Had A Birthday!


The lovely Lauren had a birthday this weekend!
We celebrated yesterday with some of her favorite foods 
and presents (mainly a big wad of cash so
she can go shopping!).  We decided shrimp scampi
is so delicious, we need to have it more often and
not just on her birthday each year!
The big kids are turning 25 years old this year!
I can't believe that!  Time is flying!
The both get better looking each year, if
that is possible.  Aren't they a gorgeous couple?

    1. She was a brilliant find by Taylor. I can still remember the first time he brought her by...'just a friend and classmate' in a business class in college. He brought her over to meet Nugget. :)

    I have a young friend whose girlfriend is also named Lauren. On FB he always refers to her as "the lovely Lauren" so I had to laugh when I saw that. :)
