I know it's a little late but hey LATE is my middle name. We celebrated Ashley's 17th birthday on Saturday October 29th (her actual birthday) by taking her and 3 friends out to dinner to Taste of Texas. It's pretty much the best steak house aside from Ruth's Chris which is way too expensive for that many people. Myself, Aaron, my mom, Ashley and her friends had a wonderful time. I can't believe she is 17. She has so many plans for the future. She made honor roll the first 6 weeks of school. Which is amazing since she had a rough few years. She is doing so well though and really has her life on track. She is making plans to go to culinary school, although she doesn't know where yet. She is touring U of H in December but would love to go to Le Cordon Bleu in Austin. I personally would love for her to go to U of H but the decision is ultimately up to her. Her plan is to go to culinary school, get a job then go back to get a restaurant management degree. The great thing is she has a plan and has goals.
