My Golden Birthday

Friday, June 3, 2011

On 5-25 I turned 25!
Am I really in my mid-twenties? I thought that by the time I hit the golden bday
I would be mourning this supposedly high number. But ya know what? I am proud of it!
I am excited about all of the things I have learned and been a part of in my 25 years of life.
The best part is there is so much more to come!
So my bday landed on a Wednesday which meant a full day of school.
When I got out of the shower Derrick called me into the kitchen where he had a
cake, flowers, and a gift laid out on the kitchen table.
Now this wasn't just any ol' cake.
(He had spent three hours the night before preparing it.
I had no idea what he was making, he banished me from the kitchen and so... painted my nails)
He made me my favorite cake ever! Godiva Chocolate Cheesecake. mmmmmm...
I love this cake so much that I remember on my 18th Bday I went to Cheesecake Factory with my family, ordered a slice, brought it home and took only one bite a day so I could savor it for a whole week! haha And Derrick didn't even know that story til after he had made it. Needless to say I love him more because of his thoughtfulness.
My only regret is that I would have taken some good pics! We just dove right in that morning and by that time I thought of taking a pic, it was mutilated. But wow it was amazing!

This is Cheesecake Factory's version. Derrick's was just as delicious.

So that was my start to a wonderful birthday.
It was a beautiful day, perfectly warm and only slightly breezy.
I got lots of love from family and friends:)

What Derrick and I were really excited for was the coming weekend because
we had big plans to spend our 4 day weekend wisely
and celebrate our anniversary/my bday somewhere fun.
But we still hadn't decided where to go or what to do! Jackson? Yellowstone? Salt Lake? Park City?
were St George and Las Vegas too far?
