Happy Birthday Emilia

Happy Tuesday. Today is a very special day. Emilia turns 15. I know I say this every year but where does the time go?? Even though it is her birthday I always feel like I am the one that got the best present. I am just so thankful to have her for my daughter, She is a beautiful girl both inside and out and has such a good heart. She is a wonderful chef too. Cooking is something she loves to do and is great at. She cooks for us all the time and we love her food. I am just so thankful to have her for my daughter.
The day started off with these Gluten Free, Lactose Free, Buttermilk Coconut Pancakes.
and this little gift set I made her. The bag template is from  Leigh Ann's blog. The hippo is from this cut file set but reduced 50%. The pattern paper is from this digital paper pack.  The balloons are from this cut file and  were stamped with a sentiment from Mixed Messages.

Inside the bag was this beautiful flower clip that I got from this Etsy seller. 
She also got seasons 1-3 of Glee on DVD and money for cooking supplies. She really wants a good blender so if you have any recommendations let me know.
This afternoon my mom took us shopping  and she got some cool new outfits. 
The day ended with a family dinner. We had Chicken and Black Bean Taco's from Skinny Taste which are one of our favorites and desert was Dairy Free Tres Leche Cake.
Overall she said it was a great birthday. Hopefully 15 will be a great year too!
