Birthday Surprises and Wishes


I may be turning 28, but when it comes to my birthday, I am pretty sure I act more like a kid than an "adult."  I believe the older I get, the longer the celebration should be for my birthday.  If you don't subscribe to this school of thought, you should. It's awesome.

I wasn't really looking forward to this weekend because Andrew was going to have to work all day Saturday. I wasn't dreading it by any means, but I figured it would just be like any other Saturday he works.

Little did I know the scheming that had been taking place throughout the week...

Andrew told me Friday night he was going to take me to lunch on Saturday for my birthday, but was super evasive when I asked where. Fast forward to the drive to lunch and I guessed we were going to Jim 'n Nicks, a barbeque place we like.

Me: Are we going to Jim 'n Nicks?

Andrew: *nodding yes with a smirk* You're so smart

Me: I know. You can't get anything past me.

Little did I know that when we walked into the restaurant, this was the face that would greet me!

I have no idea how loud I screamed, but I really didn't care. I had no idea my mom, brother, sister-in-law and adorable little nephew were coming down for lunch! It was the best surprise EVER.

Unfortunately, they couldn't stay as long as I would've liked and I also temporarily lost my mind and didn't think to get a group picture.  The rest of the afternoon was pretty low key for me and the day ended with chili, pumpkin cookies and some Harry Potter. All in all, despite the hubby having to work, it was a pretty great day.


I realized, sometime around August, that I have a hard time coming up with ideas for what people can get me for my birthday or Christmas.  To remedy this, I created a "wish list." And let me tell you, this has been a awesome because it keeps me from wanting to spend unnecessary money. If I find something I want, I just add it to the list!

1. Timex Houndstooth Watch 2. Infinity Scarf 3. A Walk One Winter Night
4. Silver Knot Earrings 5. Monogrammed Sweatshirt 6. Vintage American Tourister Leather Travel Bag

I loved doing this idea though, so it may become a tradition. It's a win-win!

Happy birthday eve to me :)
