I’m twenty-three! Last year on my birthday I jammed-out to Taylor Swift’s “I’m feeling 22”, but this year I wasn’t sure what to do! I didn’t even have to worry though, because I have the best husband and family! My birthday landed on a Friday and I don’t have classes on Friday! Braden spoiled me starting with a lazy, cuddly, morning, and then my mom came down to Provo to visit and have lunch.
We had the best luck, so Braden’s class got canceled and he was able to come home early! We all chatted and then headed to get my favorite cuisine for lunch – Sushi. We tried Itto Sushi at University Mall and loved it! They were fast, and the sushi was all really good.
After arriving at home, I put William down for his afternoon nap and caught up on text/phone messages. Thanks to everyone who wished me a happy birthday. It meant a lot and made my day so happy and complete! Later Braden got home and we were able to squeeze in a little nap before heading out for dinner. Naps are always a gift!
The evening came around and my amazing friends came over to babysit William so Braden and I could go on a date. They are wonderful! (if you guys are reading this–THANK YOU!) We did a little shopping and went to dinner at Bombay House in Provo (my other favorite cuisine). Bombay was pretty busy, but we didn’t mind because it’s not too often that you get a date night when you are in college with a baby! We love going out just the two of us, but it’s funny how we always feels like we are missing something (Will)!
When we got home, my friends surprised Braden and I with some balloons, decorations, and my favorite treat – Bowl of Heaven. We had a lot of fun talking, playing music, and laughing super hard! All while William was fast asleep ~ I don’t know how he slept through the festivities! We were having so much fun that we didn’t realize how late it was, so at around 10-10:30 Braden kicked everyone out ;)
I feel so lucky and blessed to have so many wonderful people in my life! My birthday was special not because it was “my day” but because of the love I felt from my friends and family. You guys are the best!
