My birthday was last Friday and it was SUCH good day! Last year Jared was still in Iraq on my birthday, so I went to the store and picked up my present myself. Lame! (Not the present, just being by myself). This year I was incredibly spoiled. My oh so cool sister-in-law took me out to lunch to Zuppa's, which is the BEST. It's pannini, salad, soup type place and it was so good! And it was fun to see my little niece throw her food around the resturant. Okay, that's an exaggeration but a lot of it did end up on the floor. So cute! Then Jared took me to The Cheesecake Factory that night for dinner, and it was the first time I'd ever been. Wow. The menu was fifteen pages long, I swear, and it took me forever to decide on what I wanted to eat. Everything was delicious! And then we came home and he watched Pride and Prejudice with me. I love that movie.
Saturday Jared spent the whole day shopping with me. He's such a trooper! We went to Kohl's, and he will sit there and watch me try on all the clothes. He's definitely my favorite shopping buddy. Sunday was Easter and we went over to my mom's house and did my birthday and Easter together. This year I sent out a birthday list to my siblings to make the shopping a little bit easier. I am now converted to the gift wish list. So much easier on the shopper, plus I get what I want. Anyway, the dinner was also good and we had carrot cake w/ cream cheese frosting for dessert.
All in all, it was a SPECTACULAR weekend. I love my birthday. This week Jared's mom and sister are coming in to town to take her up to Rexburg for the semester, so we're excited to see them. Hopefully I'll remember to bring my camera and take some pictures. Not doing so hot on that!
