Honey's 80th!

Last week we packed up and headed to Alabama to celebrate our sweet Honey's 80th birthday!  She's such a special person to us and for such a big birthday we had to celebrate her in a big way.  My cousin and her boys drove down for the occasion too so, it was a packed house full of loved ones and grandbabies for her.

During her birthday day she kept getting mad we had errands to run, so we joked with her all day that we had to go finalize the plans for the stripper coming later that night, so just calm down! haha. She was hysterical and in typical Honey fashion said "ohhh ok, well let me go get ready, I want to look nice for him!"  That afternoon she took a nap and Heather and I took the opportunity to decorate the house up.  When she woke up she was so shocked!  It was so sweet!  She started to cry saying over and over how she didn't deserve all this.  We assured her over and over that she definitely did because she was the most special lady in the whole world to us.  Although, she did make sure to inform us that we messed up on her age she is only 69, not 80.  ;)  She has been 69 as long as I can remember! haha

We did a cheers to 80 years theme and dressed her up with a "the queen is 80" shirt, pin and light up tiara.  She loved it!  Pops grilled us all steaks on the grill for dinner...and we wrapped the night up with the most delicious cake....caramel inside, and her favorite..grocery store icing as she calls it ;)

is she the cutest or what!

For her past couple birthdays we have gifted her new flowers for her pots outside.  She loves looking at them and going out there to water them and take care of them each day.  My mom, myself and the girls helped her plant them while she supervised us from her rocking chair with her chardonnay :)

The weekend was filled with the cousins playing, pops cooking us several delicious meals...he is quite the chef these days, and some walks on the beach. 

 It was a quick three day trip, but sweet and full of memories I will hold in my heart forever.
