Golden Birthday

    Tomorrow is my golden birthday (I turn 27 on August 27th). I have been looking forward to this birthday since my dad’s golden birthday when he turned 27 on January 27th 19 years ago. My mom threw a big surprise party for him, and my brother and I had so much fun being in on the surprise.

    Because we are spending the weekend with the Smiths UpNorth, Jesse and I celebrated tonight. It all began with a gift scavenger hunt. Jesse left me three clues around the house. Each clue eventually held the code to a padlock. Inside was my very own MACBOOK PRO! Many of you remember when Jesse got his MacBook Pro last year. He had saved up for it forever and was so excited. Well, I have been jealous ever since.

    Jesse together with his parents and my parents bought me a laptop as a joint birthday/grad school graduation gift. I’m using it to complete this post. The best part is that Jesse completely surprised me; I had absolutely no idea for probably the first time in our marriage (I’m pretty observant and always catch some kind of hint or clue from Jesse). After starting the set-up on my new computer, we enjoyed dinner together at The Melting Pot. I love birthdays…

    I am heading back to school next week but will try to post about Mexico soon. Let me preview it with it was fabulous and, of course, I puked on myself…
