best. gift. ever.

this is what my mom and dad gave me for my birthday... as some of you may have read previously on my blog, i have fallen in love with Jane Austen... i opened the wrapping on the end and could only see the gold-edged pages... my dad said "what kinds of books have you gotten in the past that have pages that look like that?" i said "scriptures?"
as i tore away the paper, i read the title... before i even had it out of the wrapping i almost started crying...
i should have taken a picture of the spine... but all of her books are in it...

Sense and Sensibility
Pride and Prejudice
Mansfield Park
Northanger Abbey
Lady Susan

i'll be sure and blog as i read...
p.s. see how excited Emily is in the background? not even CLOSE to how excited i was!

my not-so-little brother took a video of the birthday cake and singing... watch it here

Mom doesn't remember but she bought that book already, its just been at my house with the sticky still on it that says "Molly bring this back when you are done so I can read it" LOL I still haven't read it. Oh and should I have said keeping us aboobed of the situation?
