Milestones and Birthstones

It’s Rebecca’s Birthday

Let’s Hit the Mall!

Please join us for a


At Anderson Mall

Tuesday, June 21st

6:30 to 8:30 pm

She has been anticipating this day for years....literally.

When I FINALLY get my ears pierced...., I can't wait to get my ears pierced...., I don't know if I am going to get my birthstone or just a little silver stud...., When so and so got her ears pierced, she couldn't swim all summer...., They say you can change your earrings after 6 weeks, but I am going to wait 8 just to be safe....

and so on and so on and so on for weeks, months, years.

Last night, with 8 of her closest friends, Rebecca got her ears pierced. It was monumental.

I schemed up some plans for a scavenger hunt.... it was quite the ordeal. There were many stores that were not "allowed" to cooperate with my antics. Here is how it went down. When the girls arrived, I gave each one of them a shopping bag and a "Mall Royalty" crown. Then each girl had an opportunity to draw a clue out of the bucket and try to figure out which store we were "shopping" in next. When they arrived at the store, there was a little gift for them at the check out counter.

Here were the clues:

For some of you this place is HANDY

When you text and talk, your lips and phone look dandy!

(Place: Cell Phone Cover Kiosk, Gift: Lip Balm and Bubblegum)

You could spend 100 Grand or a Million you know

Or sit down and enjoy a warm cup of JOE!

(Place: Joe Muggs at Books a Million, Gift: Coffee Cup with 100 Grand Bar inside)

A sweet smelling place that satisfies every“BODY”

(Place: Bath and Body Works, Gift: Hand Sanitizer)

A tiny little place that sits close to an “Eagle”

When you don yourself with this you will look rather regal!


(Place: Gifts, Etc. Gift: Nail Polish)

A sentiment from here is what I suggest

When you care enough to send the very best!

(Place: Hallmark, Gift: Small set of notecards)

When you need a ring repaired, this place is a cinch

Don’t plan to sit and relax, because there is no BENCH.

(Place: Jeweler's Bench, Gift: Ring Pop)

If you are getting tired, the CHAMP will come to your aid

He’s hanging out in here with some refreshing Gatorade!

(Place: Champs, Gift: Gatorade)

Accessorize your outfit and you’ll be set

Just make sure, in here, you don’t get WET!!!

(Place: Wet Seal, Gift: Hair band)

A brand new experience with the Birthday Girl we’ll share

As Rebecca makes a friend with a girl named Claire!

(Place: Claires of course! Gift: Sharing in this sweet experience with the Birthday Girl)

Here we’ll eat some nuggets and share a coke

And watch 12 blown-out candles make some smoke!

(Place: Food Court and Chick Fil A, Gift: Dinner and Cake!)

"Dear Special Friend
It is your Birthday
It is the day that Jesus sent you to the earth!
And we will celebrate
'Cause we love you and we're thankful
For the BLESSING of your birth!"

Happy 12th Birthday Rebecca!!!
