*cue every birthday song ever, mainly 50 cent's, please.
Last night, when the clock hit midnight, I was in a deep sleep...Caleb woke me up, rolled over and told me happy birthday, with a huge smile on his face. It's quite precious because 1. that man has to get up at 5 am for work every day so his sleep is precious...and 2. it was just a simple act that started out my birthday right. I'm so unbelievably blessed by his love and by everyone around me. It's really fun being cared about! :)
I just have to also say...birthday's freaking rock, so naturally on this day that I was born 22 years ago, I'm pumped! I like to celebrate an entire week (minimum) for someone else's, so it was kind of fun when Caleb started giving me mini gifts days in advance to "count down" to the actual date. He has had way too much fun!
I got my first official birthday present on Monday evening, in an adorable little package from my Anna! She got me an ADORABLE monogrammed necklace, I am soo excited to show you guys soon!
|those are some mad packaging skills, Anna!|
Tuesday is when the "countdown presents" began and Caleb was like a paparazzi the whole time! Love that man!
Later that night, two of my girls (both were bridesmaids) decided to prank me by knocking on my door and running just to freak me out...which totally worked. When they finally got caught, they came in and gave me some presents! Yaaaay! (excuse the glasses...)
|freaking love floppy hats.|
|Lynds & Ang|
We jump started the celebrations with family on Wednesday when our faves had us over for an amazing dinner party and had a freaking blast.
They made an amazing dinner and showered me with fun presents (and oreo cake).
|say hiiii to Caleb's new scraggly, but sexy, beard.|
After that we literally just sat on the couches and talked for hours. It's so cool that we can do that, and I'm seriously SO grateful we can!!
Erin and I obviously had a photo shoot...and this is probably the only decent one (and we aren't even focused on the right camera!), bahaha...that is a good sign though. Too much laughter in between shots!
& last night? Well last night was amazing. My incredible grandparents hosted us, AND Erin & Jared for dinner and the first preseason game (WHO-DEY!). Remember, neither of us have cable? It's a sad story, really...but trust me, totally worth it. This night was amazing and its cool how E&J feel like more grandkids to my grandparents!
We had amazing dinner, and fun conversation!

You know the photobooth was launched.
|can you guess which one was mine... ;)|
Thanks to my amazing grandparents for a fun night, and a wonderful gift card (haayy starbucks!)
Tonight, Caleb told me he has lots of surprises for me. So you could say I'm already ready for the work day to be over and get started on a fun night out with my man!
So here is to the best year yet.
22, you're gonna rock!
