On Sunday I turned 26! Jordan made it such a special birthday this year. We celebrated all weekend long. On Friday morning the doorbell rang and there was the flower delivery man with a beautiful bouquet from Jordan. Friday night my mom and Dylan spent the night at our house with the girls so Jordan and I could go on a super date. First we went to dinner at the Cheesecake Factory, where we thoroughly enjoyed some uninterrupted dinner conversation with Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cheesecake, my favorite! After Cheesecake we went and saw Spectre (after we walked around Target to kill a few minutes before the movie) with a big ol' tub of buttery movie theater popcorn. I think the last time we went to a movie alone was Thanksgiving 2014. We really need to go to more movies!
After the movie we headed to a hotel near Jordan's office. He had purchased a voucher for 2 nights stay with breakfast a few months ago from a silent auction and we decided this was a great time to use one of the nights. Oh the king sized bed! Oh the uninterrupted night's sleep! It was so refreshing and the breakfast buffet in the morning was great.
On Sunday, my actual birthday, Jordan cooked every meal and even threw me a little party which included chocolate fondue. Truly delicious! He also spoiled me with some great presents and had been coaching Reagan to sing "Happy birthday to mommy."
I've also enjoyed redeeming all of my birthday emails as I run around town. Two of my favorites below!
I think I still want to use my Benihana birthday certificate, even if it means I have to go by myself. Here's to 26! I'm at a very happy place in life and am excited for this upcoming year!
