Happy 'ocean side' Birthday, sweet Kelly!

I call Kelly my heart/step daughter because she really did steal my heart immediately with her gentle, sweet and loving ways. She is a big time people pleaser and she really does please me!!
This is one of her favorite things to say when things are not going as good as they should:
Today has been super duper busy because it is her birthday. We went to church, picked up her cake, got the gifts and cards taken care of, took a short nap, went out to eat, decorated the dining room with a beach theme (will post pictures later), and now I am trying to frantically get this post done and pack before we leave at 4:00 a.m. tomorrow morning for her BIG birthday gift of a trip to the beach! We will be gone for two days, so I will be missing (but praying) for all of you and posting again on Wednesday...with a POEM (and for all you cheerful souls who would like to join in on this brain exercise or craziness, I will look for a cute little or big or medium poem on Wordful Wednesday)!!
We are headed for Tybee Island, GA because Kelly has never ever even seen a beach or the ocean. She has repeatedly mentioned how she would love to one day go, so now is the time , on her 21st birthday!!
Here is the Tybee Lighthouse that we will visit:

And here is the long anticipated beach we will see:

Kelly absolutely LOVES anything to do with Mario brothers, so her cake had that theme and we even went to a Japanese restaurant, so in honor of her birthday, here is some Mario sushi (I say yuck and she say yum, I say toomaaatoe and she says tomato...uh oh, on a roll here...):

Doesn't get much better than oriental + Mario brothers, the best of both worlds:

Here are some guys dressed the way Kelly thinks all people should dress, everyday, all the time:

Uh oh, think this Mario needs some rescuing, Kelly:

Kelly did love her nintendo Mario and now her Wii:

Now who couldn't love this cute little guy (and I, for one, surely do love the name Mario with both a husband in heaven and a son named Mario):

Finally how about some Mario cupcakes? Boy I tried every place here for Mario cakes and Had to decorate it myself!

{{P. S. Once again thank you wonderful Bernie for my newest award and will do it justcie when we get back. Also, still need those addresses for the prize winners, please.}}
