how rude of me....

My birthday was a few weeks ago, actually almost a month ago, and I forgot to say what a GREAT day I had. So because I am still thinking of it, and I enjoyed the whole day, I am going to bore you all with a flashback to MAY 22, 2008.:

I turned 26 this year. And I can honestly say this was one of the best birthdays I have ever had. I told my Dad, I use to laugh when he'd say,"Oh its just another day, I forgot it was my birthday." As a child and teenager I thought to myself, "Yeah right, who forgets their birthday." Well this year I almost forgot.
That was until my fantastic family especially my very thoughtful (and very handsome i might add) husband spoiled me. The day started out great, Milo and Saige both slept in, as if they knew it would be such a treat for Mom to sleep in a bit. (OHHH THANK YOU KIDDOS). We just played that day and I had such a great time.

I received phone calls and texts from so many great friends, some i haven't spoken with in ages remembered me on this day!(WOW is all i can say, good for you guys!!) It really made me feel good that I have so many thoughtful people in my life. The neighbors, our best buddies, the Barneys brought me a yummy rice krispie cake!! Thank you by the way, I can attribute the extra large "dimple" on my thighs to that cake! After Matt got home he tried to play a trick on me. He told me he bought me some new floral pots, some of the ones he previously bought had died. He made me close the blinds so he could hang them up and I wouldn't peek. As I walked around the corner of the garage he had a BIKE waiting for me! Totally shocked and amazed, I just smiled and laughed, I had no idea this was coming. I had talked about it LAST summer, and he remembered! Its so perfect THANK YOU!!

He then took me out for dinner. He wouldn't tell me where we were going but just said dress nice. THANK HEAVENS, that means we are not going to Wingers!! ( Matt had a slight addiction to their wings for a bit, I'd be happy if i never went back!) He drove through Holladay and we ended up at the Boulevard. Oh my yummmmmmy!! A full on 5 course meal, no screaming children in sight, and actually a moment where I could speak and just smile with Matt. We had such a good time!! Thank you Scott and Lisa for watching the kids!! That alone is a great present!

The next night my family joined all together and we went to dinner at Cafe Trang. What an amazing group of people we had there. We just all sat, ate great food and had a fantastic time, at least I did! So thank you all-- I had a great day and would be happy if this was the last birthday I ever had, for more than one reason!!

And this is the reaction I got when I asked Saige to smile. Just like her Dad!
