Birthday Awesomeness

Thank you all so much for all your birthday wishes!!  You are all awesome!  I just had to share with you what my husband and Kit did for my birthday.

First, you all will be so jealous that he is my husband and not yours because LOOK at what he built for me!!  Thank you to our friend, Aaron who was also awesome and helped him with this.

Who else on the planet has a husband that would build them a shrine to their obsession?
These are shadow boxes that he made for the actual books!!  And there isn't any glass in the front, so I can just reach in and pull them out when I want to read them!  HAPPINESS!!

And to further feed my book obsessiveness, here's what Kit got me:

She drew this!

And inside was $20 for me to buy the hard cover of Supernaturally (Paranormalcy #2) when it comes out!

Thank you, family, for being the best!!  

Of course I also went out and bought a copy of City of Fallen Angels!!  

So, it was a pretty good day!  :D

I love you!

(sorry for the crappy quality of the pics....)
