I won't even try to give any excuses as to why I haven't blogged the last couple days. Life took over, and I just didn't care to try and stop it. No apologies here! BUT, I'm back and I can't even begin to explain how much LOVE I felt over the entire weekend with all the birthday wishes!! All the sweet comments from some of you, friends texts, calls, family lunches, and who could forget? The sweetest husband there ever was! Can't wait to tell you what he did for me. Keep reading to find out later!
Friday night, we rushed home from work to make it to a Red's game with some of the youth group from church...it was an absolute blast. While Caleb and I hung out with the kids most of the night, we snuck in a little time together and a few pictures!
Although the Reds lost, it was a great game to be at, and to top it all off! The hall-of-famers were there AND it was firework night! It was a win all around.
We got home after midnight, so we went to bed! When we woke up Saturday, my man wished me the happiest birthday ever and took me to lunch at my favorite place!
Then, then then thennnnn! He took me to Marshall's and told me to pick out my favorite thing. Well, that meant this beauty was coming home with me!!
THEN...I turned around and my man held up the cutest pair of linen pants, and a clearance pair of heels, in MY size! I have to say, I was impressed. He made me try them on, and I loved them so much I got them (so cheap!!) I'm pretty certain I'll be wearing these heels everywhere I go for a while!
I got picked up at 12:30 for the wedding I was shooting with Joe, and was gone all day. It was GORGEOUS, but I did miss my man! He told me he had been at his friends all night, so I didn't expect him to be awake when I got home, at 11pm. I walked in, and I saw a gorgeous satin robe hanging in the hallway, and I could smell something amazing. Caleb came out and handed me a card...that essentially told me I'm the hardest worker he knows, and that he wants me to relax. He opened the bathroom door and literally, I couldn't help but start to cry! Ha, it was like a movie in there.
He had candles EVERYWHERE, and roses....and a hot bath ready for me!!! I can't even tell you how much it meant to me. I had one stinking hour left in my birthday when I got home, and he wasn't about to waste it by letting me sleep! Remind me to keep him ;)
Sunday, my family made me a delicious lunch. I got yummy food, and an amazing present!!! One of the "Pioneer Lady" cookbooks!!! I'm so, so excited!
If this weekend is any indication of how amazing my 23rd full year will be, then I'm really looking forward to it. Thanks for all the love, friends!!! Happy Wednesday!
