Happy Birthday Andrea!

I am so stinking excited about today! It's one of my dearest and sweetest blog friend's birthday! Cue the confetti, the balloons, the 80's music, the cake, and the bubbly for my special girl, Andrea
Most of you already know that Andrea and I became fast friends even before we finally got to meet one another last fall in Nashvegas, along with all the other Nash Bash Girls. That's what makes this little piece of the world that I like to refer to as "Blog Land" so much fun! Making new friends and forming life long friendships with other bloggers has brought me so much happiness. 
My dear friend has been blessed with sharing "Cloud 9" with some pretty darn handsome men in her life. She and Mr. Nine have raised some awesome kids and I can't wait until the day when she gets to welcome a sweet and precious daughter-in-law to the Nine Family! 
I mean, just look at this Girlie! Who can still rock a red mini skirt like this? Most of you know Andrea as a fashion blogger, but I'm here to tell you that there's more to her than just her fabulous style and and taste in clothes!

My friend always has a smile on her face, is THE biggest encourager, and the high-fivingest cheerleader you will ever want on your team! Speaking of teams, she loves her Notre Dame Fighting Irish football team and what's even MORE special is that she supports my Crimson Tide as long as we're not playing each other!  Ha! And just for the record, we were worried we might just have to last season! But in all honesty, Andrea, is the most genuine and kindest person you will ever meet and I treasure our friendship!

Andrea loves to cook, entertain friends in her gorgeous new home, and has become a PRO at decorating tiered trays! My favorite recipe of hers are the Party Sliders! She even sent me the gnocchi for this recipe when I couldn't find it at my local grocery store! And she's a Mama's girl, too! 

Stop by today and wish my Girl a Happy Birthday!  I can't think of another person I'd rather sing "I Never Promised You A Rose Garden" with at the Grand Ol' Opry!

Love you, Andrea!  Hope you have the best birthday ever!! 

Hi there, I'm Laura, I'm the happiest wife, the loudest cheer mom, and the craziest girlfriend you'all ever have, I'm a Southern Belle living in a Southern world!
