Birthday Fun

On Sunday I celebrated my 28th birthday. Actually, I celebrated on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. 🙂 I love birthdays and wanted to squeeze in as much fun as possible. On Friday (as mentioned in my last post) I went to Red Robin and hunted for pumpkins. On Saturday we went to a local festival, but it was too cold to enjoy anything. We stopped at the cheaper place in town and picked out our carving pumpkins. That night we went out to eat with my in-laws and had tiramisu for dessert.

On Sunday we had a lazy morning and then my boys gave me my presents. They are very cuddly and affectionate when present opening is involved. 🙂

Aww, Shepard.

They drew me some very creative cards. I love how Caden draws people right now!

So cute.

Greg gave me a necklace that he picked out for me in Door County.

And an Annie! This is my latest obsession. I adore handmade more contemporary looking Raggedy Anns, especially those made by Raggedy Old Annie. I was very excited to add this to my new collection!

Now I have two of her larger ones. And a third coming in the mail tomorrow. 🙂

After presents we dropped the boys off at my parents’ and Greg and I went on a date. We ate at Tex Tubb’s Taco Palace – a restaurant we drove by a few months ago and were really curious about. Tacos are my favorite! They had a lot of really unique taco flavors to choose from. I had the Hot Mama (buffalo chicken) and Backyard BBQ (bbq pork). I probably would have liked them a lot more if they were on hard shells.

Afterward we went to Olbrich Gardens, a place we used to go to all the time in college. It was pretty chilly, but still nice to walk around outside for a bit.


And then back to my parents’ for a little celebration. I was super excited that my mom gave me an Annie too! This one from Old Ragdoll Cupboard, where I bought my very first Annie at a craft fair a few months ago.

It was a pretty laid back birthday, but I appreciate the effort everybody went to giving me a special weekend. Birthdays aren’t that big of a deal once you’re an adult, but it’s nice to know that so many people care. 🙂

My silly boy.

Finishing with a huge slice of Apple Crumble Pizza Pie – the birthday dessert of my choice for most of my life. Thanks to my mom for making it!

Overall, a very nice birthday! Thank you, everyone!
