This year I celebrated my 28th birthday (way back in February!) and it was the first birthday that I've just totally dreaded. I love getting the extra attention and love each year but I felt like this year, I was actually feeling a year older! If that makes sense!? I only have two more years in my twenties and I feel like there's so much I want to do before I turn 30. Expect a 30 before 30 post soon ;)
Anyways, so for my birthday this year Dave's little brother came down from North Dakota to visit and he was kind enough to offer to babysit so Dave could take me on a date. Lucky for me I got two dates in one week. Thanks Brandon!
Why do iPhone's have such crappy cameras?
Our first date we took the kids out for Hibachi. The restaurant was so dark with just horrible lighting, hence the awful quality pictures. It was snowing outside and absolutely freezing in the restaurant even with all the fire everywhere. But nothing was going to stop me from celebrating in my sparkle pants! After dinner we went shopping in an empty Target! Whenever it snows in Texas, people become hermits and refuse to leave their houses. I wasn't complaining because we had the entire store to ourselves. It was perfect!
Our second date was just Dave and I. We stopped for some crappy Taco Bell, my favorite, and took our food to the drive in where we watched American Sniper. Or at least tried. It was sleeting the whole time so the windows kept fogging up and there was water all over them. We were able to fold the seats down and we took pillows, sleeping bags and blankets and just cuddled up in the back. So even though we weren't sure what was happening in the movie we still got to cuddle for a couple hours uninterrupted! haha
Even though I still feel old, 28 has been a great year so far. We've already done so much and there's still a lot more in store for this year. Happy Birthday to me!
