a little late…

October 25th, 2009 — 3:52pm

I realize I’m a little late at posting the last day of my birthday week. Oops. Time just gets away from ya’ I guess.

On Monday Andrew and I celebrated my actual birthday. We ate a  delicious meal at the Cheesecake Factory. That is one of my favorite places to eat…it is just so good! We split a meal so that we could enjoy our own piece of cheesecake.

We had a wonderful time talking, laughing and thinking about all the things that have happened over the last year of our lives. Good times for sure!

I got my last gift…a circle diamond necklace. It is so wonderfully dainty, but yet so sparkly! I love it.

It was a wonderful week, I not so secretly wished it was not over! Guess I will have to wait another year.

On Saturday Andrew and I met up with Stacy and her sweet little girl Cadence. Andrew took pictures of them and I must say…they turned out so cute! I’ve got one talented husband! That was alot of fun for me….it gives me an excuse to be really silly, make faces and dance around to get Cadence to smile. There were also several times where Stacy couldn’t help but laugh at my antics.

Saturday night Andrew arranged a dinner with two of my besties, Becca and Laura. Michael, Becca’s husband, was able to come, but Sean was out of town. We had a great time eating at Rudy’s and catching up. After dinner we headed over to our place for birthday cake. Sadly, the cake did not turn out too well..but we all had a good laugh about it and ate it anyway.

I had such a good time talking and laughing with my old friends. I know I am so blessed to have friends that I can not see for a while, but then pick right back up with when we do get together. It’s like we never skip a beat.

Today I got my 5th gift…a Matt Wertz cd. Oh man, his voice is like butter! I love it.

Here are some pics from Sat. night:

Friday morning Andrew made me breakfast. Upon my request, he made cinnamon rolls. Oh man, do I love cinnamon rolls. That was definitely a great start to my morning.

I figured that was my present for the day, but was surprised again that afternoon. Andrew had left a note in my car while I was at school! He is so sneaky! The note talked about smelling good things, so I was thinking maybe he got me flowers. Well, I was right. I walked in the kitchen door and there was a note telling me to “Stop” with an arrow pointing to the kitchen table. And on the table was a vase full of beautiful red roses. What a sweet husband I have!

That night Andrew and I went on a date of my choice. I decided to eat at Texas Roadhouse and then go to the mall together. What fun I had! Andrew is not much of a shopper, but it was great fun to have him there with me. I really enjoyed it, and I think he did too. I got a cute sweater from the Gap and of course a cookie from the cookie company.

I told Andrew he is going to spoil me….I think that might be the point. 🙂

Today for my birthday week I found another note waiting for me in my car. It was a clever little note with several clues as to what my gift would be.

Of course all day I was wondering and guessing what it might be….it drove me crazy! Andrew says all these secrets build character…I”m not so sure about that.

Once Andrew got home I got my third birthday gift….the movie No Reservations! Yay! I love that movie and have been wanting it for a really long time. I can’t wait to watch it.

Today I had a sweet note in my car telling me that my surprise was soon to come. Of course, most of the way to work I was speculating what my gift could be.

Later on at lunch I grabbed my lunchbox and opened it up and found my sweet surprise! It was a delicious mango! Seriously, it was one of the best mangos I have ever eaten. Yum!

Andrew makes this so much fun and it makes me look forward to the rest of the week!

it’s my birthday week!

October 6th, 2009 — 8:02pm

Since college I have managed to stretch my birthday into a week of celebrating with friends. I like to call that a gift…some people would probably call it something else.

When I moved to Houston, and then became friends with Andrew he gave me a really hard time for celebrating for a full week. He just couldn’t imagine doing that! It was almost like he was appalled. I confidently told him he did not understand because he had never experienced the glories of  a “birthday week.”

After we started dating, I gave him a birthday week celebration and he was instantly converted! So now, we celebrate for the week leading up to our birthdays. It is a glorious thing. Everyone should do it.

Everyday I get a little gift, sweet note or both. Andrew is really creative in how he does it and of course SECRETIVE! (and this just really gets me)

Today was my first gift. He left a note sitting in my car and then The Fray’s new cd in my cd player. I was super excited! So excited in fact,  I was hoping I would have traffic this morning so I could listen to more of my cd.

I’m looking forward to a full week of celebrating with my husband and friends.
