"Simple & Free"

(by Abby Baker) Simple & Free - [Un]Defined

My birthday was on Tuesday, but I accidentally caused a little confusion by posting a couple of early birthday dessert pictures on facebook. Those of you who know me well are aware of the fact that I absolutely love birthday dessert! And because of that, I take advantage of every opportunity to eat it! My family always goes out for lunch on a Sunday near our birthday, so my birthday dessert eating began a couple of days early! :)

Then I had a little early birthday dessert surprise at the Skeeters game on Monday night...as we entered the gates of Constellation Field, our good friend Bob {respect the 'stache} greeted us! A few innings later, Bob & his wife Beth brought me birthday dessert!! How awesome are they?! That totally made my day, and I felt so blessed to have people in my life that make me feel special!

On my actual birthday, Sloan treated me to coffee in the morning. {I totally forgot to get a picture of us. Maybe I'll take one later, and we can pretend it was on my birthday?!} Then I went to Felicity's to scrapbook, and she had made me a yummy brownie dessert! Her kids made me cards, too! ♥

I got home to a package in the mail, a package on the porch, and lots of really sweet messages on facebook {including one from my baby girl that brought tears to my eyes!} Chris picked up a rotisserie chicken on his way home, because he's trying to help me make it an entire three weeks without cooking dinner! {I'm liking this, but I promise I'll get back to being domestic after Kendra's wedding! Seriously, I haven't gone this long without cooking since I was in high school!} He picked up a yummy cake, too! So by the end of my birthday, I was up to FOUR birthday desserts + birthday coffee! :)

{I stole this from his tumblr}

I went to lunch with my birthday girls on Wednesday, & afterward we went to Amy's house for dessert! I didn't know what she was making, but I knew that she picked something off my dessert Pinterest board. It was yummy Oreo cake!

{Amy texted me this picture, but I was looking at Marcie instead of Amy. I hope to show y'all one of me with all three girls after Amy has a chance to upload the pics from her camera!}

As for the song I posted today, I've declared it my new theme song! I wish it was on YouTube or Grooveshark so you could hear the whole thing, but you can listen to a preview on iTunes. {Lucky us!! She posted the video ten days after this was originally posted!} I love the feel of the song, and it really is how I want to live: simple and free.

I'm gonna live with the risk of falling
& I'm gonna dream with my eyes wide open
I'm gonna be happy, 'cause that's how it should be
Please tell me you agree
Life was made to be lived

I don't think I knew that you had a dessert pinterest board, but it is a fabulous idea.
