Maybe My Best Birthday Yet...

We celebrated what may have been my favorite birthday last weekend. The big 2-9! The older I get the less I seem to care about how old I am. Maybe it's because half of the time I can't even remember how old I am!

We started the celebration by cleaning out the garage. I know what you are thinking but don't forget that I am pregnant and have already started nesting. What more could a pregnant woman want than a clean garage?? (Also, remember: We just cleaned out our guest room for Will so guess where all of that stuff ended up last month.) Then Corey's dad babysat for us while we went to dinner and a movie. (Thanks Mark!) We had so much fun getting to have dinner AND go to a movie all in one night!

On Saturday, which is my actual birthday, Corey and Will worked on making me a cake and ran some errands for me. I actually had the morning to get a little extra sleep. I was pretty lazy all day. That night a family from our youth group volunteered to babysit Will and also gave us a gift card to eat at Ruth's Chris Steakhouse. (If you are reading this - Thanks again! It was awesome!) We had a great time and really enjoyed the food and atmosphere. Very fancy!! When we got home we had cake and opened presents.

So if you ask me I think this weekend was pretty close to perfect. I am so blessed to have such a great husband that worked hard to give me a great weekend. Here are a few pictures from the celebration.

The finished cake. Two layers of chocolate cake with white icing - my favorite! Didn't Corey do good decorating the cake? He spent a lot of time making it just right. Including sorting out the right color heart sprinkles so it would all match. If you are wondering why Ali -that's how I sign my name to him sometimes.


Will was a little impatient with all of the picture taking. He was ready to eat!


He loved the cake!
