The problem with having your birthday on Valentines Day is that it is so hard to get dinner reservations! We were going to go to the Melting Pot but then we decided to go to the Space Needle instead! Only problem was we could only get a reservation at 9pm.... That is way late for two sleep deprived parents of a newborn and a BUSY toddler!
Dinner was great though! The Space Needle's restaurant is revolving so that you get a 360 degree view of the gorgeous city. This note was on the window so Brian wrote on it and by the time we had made it back around someone else had wished me happy birthday!
If you go to the needle for dinner, you really should order the prosciutto wrapped cheese appetizer! It was delicious!! (though Brian didn't think so... more for me!)
Earlier in the day my wonderful husband gifted me with a new Macbook (and a cute turquoise cover)!!! Yay now I can blog while he is at school! He also totally surprised me with a Mommy necklace that I loved! I didn't think that he got it for me because he didn't give it to me with the computer, But as we pulled up to the Space Needle, he handed me the little box and asked me if I wanted to wear it to dinner! I love it!! I feel like 24 is old... Like full on grown-up status! Funny that having two kids didn't make me feel like a grown-up, but the number 24 totally does!

Speaking of the kiddo's did you know that it is near impossible to get a non-blurry photo of Kenley? She is constantly on the move, even when she is sick! Here she is sporting her Valentines Day outfit!

Good job Brother! I suppose I trained him well (stop laughing!).

And that is the exact necklace I have been wanting... with the exception of the letters! It is SO cute.

{Fair warning that YOU copied ME when we wear them at the same time.} Ha - kidding! ;-)

"23 is old! It's like, half-way to 25 which is like...mid-twenties!" Sorry, I couldn't resist the Jessica Simpson quote. :)

24 made me feel old, too. So neat that you got your mac book and a fabulous necklace! :)

Happy Belated Birthday Keri-I am starting to feel old and like a real grown up too, this year I turn 3-0! yikes

Shirley said...

Love your necklace, Old Lady. Right! I passed 24 so long ago I can't even remember it.

By the way, am I not a real life friend? I know I'm old, but I'm still breathing. Just kidding.

Just realized, you were 24 & Al was 64 on Valentine's Day. Do you still feel old?

Happy Birthday Keri!! Your husband is too sweet. That is such a pretty necklace.

Emma said...

How fun! And I'm so jealous of both your gifts...tell Brian to text Greg! ;)
"Funny that having two kids didn't make me feel like a grown-up, but the number 24 totally does!"
I totally felt the same way for my birthday. It's weird, but I feel old too. It IS the mid-twenties and I don't like it!

Also, with a New Year's Eve birthday, we also have the reservation problem. ;)
