Happy Birthday Mobs and Ashley

It is sometimes hard to find the time in our busy schedules to properly celebrate friend's birthdays that fall around the holidays. But that doesn't make them any less important. It is important to show them how much we truly value their friendship and how blessed we are to be a part of their lives... Ashley and Allison (Mobs) are two amazing women and I consider myself lucky just to know them. They are true friends. The ones you call when you have had a bad day, a great day, when you need advice or you just want to chat about nothing at all. They are always there. Always genuinely happy for you. Encouraging and just wonderful to be around.
We all met at La Vista for wine and a side of dinner to celebrate! It was a great evening filled with holiday stories and laughter. I am not sure why, but for whatever reason we have started a traditional round-table question that someone comes up with and we all give answers to. This round table question was to name your best and worst Christmas present. Very light-hearted and good, silly fun!
And then it was time for gifts. I love the way we do presents. We all pitch in and find that one special gift that she wouldn't buy for herself. We turn a small gift into something fantastic. Something that when asked, you can say "My girlfriends gave it to me." Something to love! For Mobs we did a perfume sample set. From the 50 or so samples they provide, you select your favorite scent, then trade your voucher in for a full size bottle. This is the way to buy perfume. How many half-empty bottles do we all have lying around the house because we are not all as big a fans of the smell as we thought we were?
And for Ashley a Kate Spade crystal bracelet. It really made the outfit!
Happy Birthday to two amazing girlfriends! Hope it is one, fantastic year!
