Today is my one week birthday anniversary so I thought I'd celebrate with a blog post from my actual birthday. Jerry had to leave for work early in the morning so he couldn't spend the first half of my birthday with me. Boo. But honestly, I was totally okay with that because instead, I spent the whole day taking extra exxxxtra long to get ready for our date that night. And I say "extra long" as in like... 4-5 hours. LOL. Is that crazy or what? I don't even know how I did that. But it was kinda nice to just go about my day, taking my time to look pretty. I mean, I took a shower, painted my nails, curled my hair, and of course, had to do my makeup. It was a productive day.
Jerry also surprised me with a bunch of little activities he had prepared in advance to keep me busy until he got home. As soon as I woke up, there was a note that basically just smothered me with happiness. Then I went out into the living room and there were balloons everywhereeeee. Like, how on earth did he have time to do that in the morning before work? Superman skills I tell ya. The balloons also had little notes in them that I needed to put together in order to figure out where we were going for our date that night. Popping balloons scare me to death! But I was on a mission so it made it a little easier to get the task done I guess haha. Then I had a scavenger hunt to find a surprise that he had tucked away somewhere. It was a huuuuge popcorn bucket with a bunch of my favorite candy inside. Ummmm YES. I love popcorn! Especially when its paired with a good chick flick. Yes. Yes. Yes.
Jerry finally got home later that afternoon and we headed out to dinner. We both ordered steak and also scallops as an appetizer. Honestly, I wish I would have just gotten the scallops as my main meal because they were amaaazing! Who knew scallops could be so good? The steak was pretty dang delicious too though so no complaints there. Then we went out and got me a personal sized strawberry cheese cake. Uh... I probably gained about 10 pounds that day. But anywho, it was a great birthday. The next day we hung out with my bro and his lady friend and we played some games. They even bought me a cake. Sweeeeet. Birthdays are the best.
24 yo. It's gonna be a good year!
