Celebrating Erin!!

Happy Birthday to one of my most precious friends!!!

Many people have asked how Erin and I even met and we both agree that we had a God ordained meeting, there is nothing in our lives that would have suggested our paths would cross (maybe running at memorial) is our story....

My last year in college I went to my Mom's hair stylist at the time whose name is Nikki. This in itself is unique because I only went to Nikki once and mom only went to Nikki for like 6 months and it just happened to be the one time I have EVER gone to my Mom's hair lady. Anyways, I was about to graduate from A&M and asked Nikki if she had any recommendations of hair stylist in Houston and she recommended two different people and I picked to try out Erin and it was love at first sight. :)

A few months after I started going to see Erin, we were talking about how we both wanted to get into a women's bible study, so we decided(along with Erika - who I had gotten to start going to Erin too) to go to Beth Moore that fall, as she was starting a new study on Esther. Erin has one of the most genuine hearts to love and serve the Lord in her day to day walk. She is such a blessing and her energy and joy always overflows to those around her. It is hard to believe that we have now been friends for almost 4 years. :) All because of hair ... God is wonderful that way.

For Erin's birthday, a few of her closest gal pals made a night of it and stayed at Hotel Sorella and ran around CityCentre for the evening. It was a lot of fun and a great getaway. (even though we were only 8 miles from my house)

Here are some pics of our celebration:

There is so much hair in this picture and I am including Amanda in that comment because her hair is longer than she has EVER had it!!!

Haha - Erin was trying to not have squinty eyes for the pic
Definately not squinty ;)

Dinner at Ruggles Green
John and Dustin, the managers, were AMAZING!! Give this place some business.
Plus the food is AMAZING.
