Yesterday, on July 27, 2011 I turned 25! This is totally a big birthday or at least it seems like it anyway. I am no longer in my early 20's and when you tell someone, they don't say, "O, you are so young!" Owell, I will have to get over it. Anyway, I had a lovely birthday. It started out bright and early at the gym with my sis. We had a nice workout, to earn all of our calories for the big day! Ha! After the gym, I headed to my 6 hour long physiology class. I know, brutal! I stopped and got Jamba Juice and then arrived to a little picture with a lovely See's candy bordeaux! If you have not had a bordeaux, you need to immediately! Then I sat through a few hours of lecture and then around 12:45 my friend from class surprised me with a cake that she had decorated. It was so sweet! After physiology class, I headed back to the house and relaxed a bit, did some homework and organizing and got ready for our dinner at Ruth Chris. We headed over there around 7:45pm and were all seated ready to enjoy our delicious dinner! We all ordered steak and lots of sides along with salads and dessert. We had such a great dinner and it was so much fun to be together as a family on my birthday! Since we got dessert with dinner, we did not end up eating the beautiful cupcakes that my mom picked up from icing on the cupcake, so we just have to eat them one day later!
At dinner, I opened a gift from the family and they got me a manicure and a pedicure which I absolutely love! You can never go wrong with that wonderful gift. Also, I thought I wanted a white Michael Kors watch for my birthday this year, however, one day my mom and I went to the mall and I found a pair of brown wedge boots that I had been looking for since last year...so I had to have them, and we split them for my birthday present...or so I thought. It turns out, that my boss got me the Michael Kors watch, the exact one I wanted, and my amazing husband bought me a sewing machine and sewing machine table to go with it. He always, always, surprises me on my birthday. I always think that he is not going to and then of course and always goes above and beyond and blows me away with the gifts that he gives me. I had such a wonderful birthday.
P.S. Thank you to all my family and friends that called, texted, emailed and sent cards. It feels so good to know how much I am loved. Thanks again!!! I love you guys!!!
P.S.S. There are more pictures, I just have not gotten them from my family's cameras yet. So, I will post more before the weekend. Pics of my watch, my sewing machine, my boots, and family photos from the restuarant.
