Happy 31st Birthday to me!
Yesterday was my 31st birthday and it was absolutely perfect. In the morning, I was surprised by my husband. He made me a DELICIOUS breakfast. It was probably the highlight of my day. He has never made me breakfast so it was very special. When I was younger my mom would ask us what we wanted for breakfast on our birthday. It became one of my favorite traditions. So, I casually hinted to Adrian that he should make me some eggo waffles. I didn't expect him to actually go through with it. He even went to the store and bought bacon and cool whip and hid it from me. I had no clue! Adrian, you are my hero. I love you very much. NOT ONLY did I get a yummy breakfast, he even wrapped my gifts. Usually he will order my gift from Amazon and leave it in the wrapped package but not this year. Very impressive! He used tissue paper. I loved it! He gave me the New Moon dvd and the third book in the Hunger Games series. I can't wait until August when it is released and is shipped to me.
Next, my sister Cassie became my personal photographer. It was so much fun modeling for her. She took pregnancy photos of me at Gardner Village and it was a blast. Thanks Cassie! I can't wait to see the pictures. I'll show you her awesome skills once I receive the photos. We met Tiffany and Emily later to have a yummy picnic. Again Cassie used her skills and made a yummy chicken curry salad and carrot cake cupcakes (my favorite). It was so much fun hanging out with my sisters and sister n' law for the day. I'm so glad it wasn't raining and I had the day off. That was a bonus!
Later, I spent the afternoon reading, watching a movie, and making a Wee Wee Wigwam (pictures to come). Finally, Adrian came to pick me up for our fun date. We went to Macaroni Grill where I scored a free chocolate cake. I had the grilled salmon which was delicious but I was sad that I wasn't able to finish it. There just isn't room in my belly anymore. I hate that about being pregnant but the rewards of having a baby are far greater. Sooner or later I'll be able to eat all of my favorite foods and not feel full.
Overall, my birthday was awesome! Thanks for all of the fun cards, messages and love. Gardner Village even was celebrating my birthday. They were off a year but that is okay. I appreciated the thought. It truly was a special day. Happy birthday to me!
