Yesterday was my birthday, and I woke up bright and early at 6:02 for my workout. As soon as I left our bedroom, I was greeted by a happy birthday balloon. A couple more were hanging on the bathroom mirror, and then I saw that the whole living room and dining room was decorated in honor of my birthday! What is super sweet about this is the fact that Stephen worked from 8-12:30 a.m. that night and then came home and decorated so I would see it when I got up!
Stephen got up around 7:30 so I could open my presents before work, and he got me some Yankee lavender aromatherapy candles and another present which made me giggle immediately. Let me show you why:
He got me a Snuggie! I will totally use this, even though it looks completely ridiculous. Commence with the mocking if you like. 🙂
After work Stephen surprised me with another gift: Blushing Cherry Blossom perfume from Bath and Body Works. It smells so pretty! He also got me these:
Aren’t they perfect? Then we went to dinner at Red Robin. Stephen had never been, and I got a coupon for a free burger since it was my birthday. I got the Bonzai Burger, which was delicious and enormous, and I ended up not finishing it or my fries. Then we went to Kohl’s to shop because my lovely in-laws gave me a gift card, and I had money from my brother and Stephen’s grandmother. Stephen faithfully accompanied me while I visited pretty much every department of the store. I tried on a bunch of stuff and modeled it all for Stephen, who provided his very helpful feedback for me. I ended up getting a new purse, new boots, several new sweaters, and another water bottle (I know, I know, I have an illness, but it was on clearance for $2.59! Plus I’m getting rid of one that’s not BPA free, so it’s a net gain of zero, really).
After shopping we had ice cream cake from Baskin Robbins, and it has cookies and cream ice cream and chocolate cake and zero calories (haha, just making sure you’re paying attention).
All in all, I had a great day, thanks to my wonderful husband. Even though Stephen doesn’t get very excited about his birthday, he knows I am all about celebrating mine, so he always makes them special. I love you, honey!
Do you get excited about celebrating your birthday?
