Birthday Weekend Extravaganza!

This past weekend I celebrated my 27th Birthday! Andrew had Saturday off, so we decided to spend the day celebrating my birthday! OK, I decided, and he went along with it. So, we got up and headed to Greenville. First on our agenda was lunch. One of Andrew's favorite places to eat in Greenville is Taco Casa. (Think Taco Bell, only better and local) Lunch was yummy. Then we went to his parents house to visit. We were there for a few hours and then it was time to go get my iPhone!! I have been wanting one since Andrew got his in March, but I had to wait until my current contract with Sprint was up. So, to the AT&T store we went. After we got my phone we went to the movies to see Julie & Julia.
The movie was very good. It wasn't exactly what I was expecting, but it was still good.

After the movie we went to dinner at one of my favorite restaurants - Portofino's. Some of the best Italian food ever! My Dear Friend Jessica and her husband joined us for dinner. That was about it for Saturday. It was a pretty full day.

Sunday was church and then Andrew's parents took us to MiMi's Cafe for lunch. After lunch we went to their house so I could open my birthday presents! I had asked for Money from both his parents and my parents so I could get a new digital camera; and that is exactly what I got. I also got this cute flag for in front of my house.
Sunday evening was spent at home, just me and Andrew.
Monday was my actual Birthday, but I still had to go to work. My boss did let me leave early though, which was very nice of him. When I got home from work, Andrew asked me if I wanted to open my present. A few weeks ago, I picked out and bought my birthday present from him. Did you follow that? Instead of him shopping and getting the wrong thing. I tell him what I want, and then he tells me to go get it. So, this is what I got a few weeks ago. A Cricut Jukebox that holds 6 cartridges at one time;
and two new cartridges. A friend of mine, that I scrapbook with, was getting rid of her Cricut and all the accessories, so that is where I bought them, and so I got a great deal. I got all three items for the price of one Cartridge.
So when Andrew asked if I wanted to open my present, I had no idea what it could be.

A Digital Picture Frame! I have wanted one of these for a while, and he remembered! He also got me not one, but two cards!
Our plans for dinner were to go to Kanpai Japanese steakhouse with my parents. Before dinner, we went to Sam's to look at digital cameras, and I bought one! I got a Nikon CoolPix s560! My old camera is a Nikon, and I really like it, so I figured I would just stick with what works.

We left Sam's and went to meet my parents at the restaurant. They are babysitting Leilani while Becky and Jeff are at the beach celebrating their anniversary, so she was there too.

Dinner was a lot of fun, and very good.

So, 3 days of celebrating, 4 restaurants, lots of love, & 1 year older. I'm looking forward to what my 27th year will bring. Thank you to everyone who made my birthday so enjoyable.
I Love you all!
