So, I am now officially 21 and 2 days. I can't believe it! It feels like I turned 16 yesterday! So I had a wonderful day and I am so grateful for all the people in my life that made it so. It is so nice to recieve phone calls, emails, text messages, cards, and packages on your birthday. It truly made me realize how many wonderful people I have in my life.
Anyway... my day was super great! Thanks to my wonderful husband, my day was truly special. He really knows how to make me feel like a princess! We started with breakfast in bed (unfortunately not home made since our power was out), I taught PE to my fifth graders who behaved wonderfully (I think the birthday thing made them feel guilty) (mission accomplished ;), we got our power back on (a great birthday present), and then we went up North. My SUPER talented sister gave me a new blonde hairdo and Adam suprised me with a nail appointment (my nails now look fabulous, thank you very much) and then we went shopping for the perfect birthday outfit! After shopping he suprised me with reservations at The Roof in Salt Lake. It was incredible. With flowers waiting for me on the table, the incredible view of the temple, the amazing piano player, and the delicious food, it was definitely a birthday dinner to remember! We then finished off the night by going to a jazz club and dancing to a few numbers before calling it a night. We had a really fun day and I can't believe how quickly it went!
I love how well my family knows me :) Thanks so much to everyone for the great presents! Katchie found these slippers with cupcakes on them that were pretty much made for me! Mom and Dad got me a Doggy Fashion book which is perfect since I happened to dust off my sewing machine this last week! (I will post pictures later of the super cute skirt I made from scratch!!) Patty sent me a gift card and Steph gave me movie tickets, and lets face it... I love any excuse to go shopping and to the movies! Adam and I haven't gone to a theatre besides the dollar theatre in ages!! Adam got me lots of cute clothes, which I am THRILLED about! Unfortunately Lole didn't pop out any puppies for me yet ;) haha I am still trying to figure out if she is actually prego or not (I am thinking yes, but if they are Scoot's babies they will be so little we wont know they are there till she pops them out!!)
Anyway, lots to be grateful for this week! The only thing that could've made the day better would have been if I could have spent it with all those that I love, who unfortunately are all over the country (and soon the world :(
Love everyone lots and thanks again for making this week special!
