My Birthentines Day Recap!

Sunday, February 24, 2013

 It's about time that I post about my Birthentines Day! It was such a great day! Brian really outdid himself and made every detail of my birthday and Valentines Day awesome! 

When I woke up there was a Venti Vanilla Spice Latte and a Chocolate Frosted Old-Fashioned Donut on my nightstand. Two of my favorite things and the perfect way to wake up! 

Brian was busy that morning way before we woke up! The night before I had laid out a Valentines table cloth with stickers and some treats in the girls mail boxes, a fun surprise for them to wake up to! Brian took it over the top and had a balloon, heart shaped donut, and a long stemmed rose for each girl! He also had a dozen roses laid out for me! 

Obviously my child. She LOVED that donut and ate most of Kenley's! 

I made strawberry milk heart shaped ice cubes for their milk that morning and picked up some cute paper straws for them to drink it with! 

Lip Pops! They loved these! It's rare for them to get candy so I wasn't surprised that they loved it! They looked so cute with the big lips!

When I pulled back the shower curtain to take a shower, I saw that Brian had drawn hearts and written notes all over the shower walls with the girls bathtub crayons! I LOVED it and had a goofy grin on my face for the rest of the day because of this! 

This made me laugh even more... 

While I was in the shower C.Lo took the liberty to decorate the living room with her rose. :) 

I also caught her running through the house chasing the cat with her "stick" and lip pop in her mouth. 

Silly Girl! 

My Mom, the girls, and I met my Grandma and My Aunt Kim for lunch at PF Changs!

It was so good to catch up with them!

After lunch my mom took the girls and I to World Market in search of a cake pedestal. I didn't find quite what I was looking for but I did find some cute measuring cups and spoons! I could spend hours looking at everything in that store! 

When we got home Brian was just finishing wrapping my presents! He made me two sizes of wooden glue gun holders from this tutorial, bought me a new glue gun to go with the bigger size, and built me a light box for taking pictures at night! 

Then while I was getting ready I put on a different earring in each ear and asked him which ones he thought looked better since he likes when I wear earrings. He pulled a little blue Saxon's box out of one of his drawers and said "how about you wear these"... YAY!!!! I LOVE them! 

We went to Aqua by El Gaucho on the Seattle waterfront for dinner. My spicy crab bisque was awesome! I definitely want to try recreating it at home! 

He is the best! 

My sister came home from WSU that night and her and I went on a shopping spree the next day while my awesome Mother-in-law watched the girls! I had been saving money for a while now and had a very specific list of the things that I wanted... navy gingham shirt, chambray shirt, wide brown belt, black 3/4 length cardigan, jeans, etc. I'm excited to say that I found everything on my list! It was a great day hanging out with my sister! 

We stopped for Menchies on the way home! I LOVE that marshmallow sauce! 

My friend April is a VERY talented potter and she gave me this beautiful fruit bowl for my birthday! I absolutely love it and I also love that it will remind me of her for years and years to come! 

What an awesome Birthday! God has blessed me so much more than I deserve! I have so many amazing people in my life and SO MUCH to be grateful for! 

26 is going to be awesome!
