So I turned 27 this past Friday! Wohoo! I was told it was my golden birthday, turning 27 on the 27th. Hey I'll take it, golden birthday and all. I was still sick and was without a voice for about three days. My mom came into town and we have a pretty relaxed day at the house with the boys, who were also still sick. Our house has been more like a hospital ward the past two weeks, with one person sick at all times. Mike got me a new polar watch with heart rate moniter. I'm in love with it and can't wait to use it at the gym... once I figure out how to use the new F11 model.
Here's Carter opening my presents. He's never wanted to open presents before, but on this day he went to town before I could even sit down next to him. For my birthday my mom watched the boys and Mike and I went out to dinner at the Japanese Steakhouse in town. I love that place but we never go unless it's a special occasion. Last Friday was certainly a special occasion so we threw our budget out the window and splurged on dinner. The best part was we were alone at the table, no big crowd to share the fried rice portion with, just me, my man and our little chef. The food was delicious but the company was better! After dinner Mike took me to Target where he bought me Twilight and we played in the toy isles picking out cars for Carter and enjoyed our time shopping without the kiddos. Then we ended the night with angel food cake my mom made for me and cuddling on the coach in our PJ's watching the new movie. I was pretty excited as you'll tell in the photos below. Thanks for a great birthday babe.
Thanks everyone that called, facebooked or emailed on my birthday! I felt pretty special and grateful to have such a wonderful support system of friends and family.
