Birthday Post-Part 1

Good Monday afternoon :)

Saturday was my 27th birthday and I have to say I don't really feel older, other than we registered Molly for 4K this morning and that makes me feel old!  But really, I feel the same like I did when I was 26.  Birthdays were a big deal in my family and when Eric and I got married I thought they would remain a big deal.  Talk about setting the bar really high...and causing some disagreements.  So we have learned to compromise, he gets me a card for my birthday and I go all out for his birthday, ha.  Okay, so not really, but lets just say he is getting better and better each year with the birthday celebration.

For Christmas Eric got me a gift card for a massage, and I was so excited!  I wanted to wait until it was closer to my birthday to use it and I am so glad that I did!  Eric also found on Groupon last week 50% off at a local salon, so he scheduled a pedicure and a manicure for me.  I totally love that he made the appointment!  So on Thursday I got a massage and on Friday morning I got all my nails done!  My mom is visiting this week and I knew that Eric wanted to take me out to dinner just the two of us, and my mom was thrilled to watch the girls.  What I didn't know was that Eric also booked a hotel room for the two of us to celebrate my birthday.  He told me on Friday because he wanted to make sure I packed everything that I would need like make-up, hair brush, etc.  All the stuff that a guy might forget about! 

So we got all dolled up to go eat at a really cool and trendy place called Water Buffalo.  It was awesome!  And I got a free dessert for my birthday.  Then we stayed at the fanciest, most modern looking hotel I have ever seen.  Seriously you would probably see this place on the Travel Channel or HGTV.  The place was packed when we came back from dinner.  I never realized how many people go to hotel bars and restaurants even if they are not staying there.  Probably because I never have done that before, but lots of people on Friday night were at our hotel.  And they even had little treats for the dogs staying there.  It was so cute :) 

Here are some pictures...all the hotel ones are from inside our room, I was too chicken to take ones down in the lobby!

 













 So that was my birthday from Eric...and boy oh boy did he out-do himself this year!!  I felt so special these past couple days.  It is such an awesome feeling to know that my wonderful husband was planning and sneaking around behind my back, in a good way, no in a great way all to make my birthday memorable.  Thanks babe, love ya!

Tomorrow I will share what my mom got me for my birthday, and for all you bloggers you will LOVE it!  And also what Molly made me for my birthday, it is soo cute and a really good idea that you all might want to use!
Thank you all for your birthday wishes on Twitter and Facebook, I loved reading all of them!  Have a great day!
