In my family, birthdays are a big deal. 80th birthdays are an even bigger deal. On New Year's Eve this year, my Mamaw will be 80 years old! Since we won't all be together for it, we celebrated over Thanksgiving.
We started out by going to Ruth's Chris. Once you eat their steak, you can never eat steak anywhere else...it never compares to theirs!
Then came the moment I've been waiting for! The gifts! I've mentioned in the past month or so that I was working on a big project and now I can finally show it off! First, I made a slideshow of pictures from Mamaw's life. But the best gift was the People Magazine. Mamaw LOVES People, she gets it every week as soon as it hits the stands. Mamaw also looks like a celebrity (read: gorgeous) and people have always told her that. So we decided to combine those interests and give her a gift she'll never forget!
Mamaw had the best reaction that I could have hoped for. I have the sweetest pictures of her crying, but she may kill me if I post those :)
Now for the magazine. I couldn't have made this without My Memories Suite that I won in a giveaway a few months ago. (They have no idea I'm writing about them...I just want y'all to know how great it is!) Most of the articles in here were inspired from real articles in People. My favorites are Chic at all Ages, their Love Story (written by Pawpaw!), and Who Wore it Best :)
Okay here's the rest!
Happy Birthday Mamaw! We love you SO MUCH!
