Happy Birthday!

Monday, June 29, was my 27th birthday! I started the day with a great workout at the gym, got my eyebrows waxed and cleaned my house really well. It was nice to get a lot of phone calls/text messages from family and friends wishing me a happy birthday. Nick got me balloons and RED, WHITE and BLUE flowers. The 4th of July is one of my favorite holidays so the flower color combo was PERFECT! He also got me a AWESOME camera-- a nikon 12 megapixels 7x zoom digital camera. We've been using my sister's camera but after a little incident where our Moab trip picutes got lost, Nick decided it was time to have our own camera. For dinner we
drove up to the Cheesecake Factory (even though our first experience there was really bad, we were both craving cheesecake, so we decied to give it ONE more try).This time we weren't disapointed. We were seated right away, our server was excellent and the food was AMAZING! Nick ordered one of their HUGE burgers and I had this really good carmalized ginger chicked dish

Of course we had
to have cheesecake! Which was most delicious and
choice above all other cheesecakes.

Afer dinner we still had a little daylight left, so we decided to go to the Thanksgiving Point Gardens and play with my new camera. We had a lot of fun messing around, Nick was posing like a bride for some of the pictures (mock groomal pictures).

It was a GREAT birthday, Nick did a really good job. Now I have to come up with something really good for his birthday which is only a week away from mine (July 6).


  1. how fun! I am so happy you had a great day! I thought about you on your birthday, but never got around to texting or facebooking or whatever. Sorry. I'm a bad work friend. :( I'm glad you like the cheesecake factory again cuz maybe you'll go there with me someday.

  2. Happy Birthday to you both!!! I love the cheesecake factory, but never had a burger. That thing is huge. Props to Nick for making it a great day for you!

  3. The mock bridal pictures are hilarious. Happy Birthday to both of you! I'm glad you had such a fun day!
