Happy Birthday to me....

By the way this post was suppose to publish about two weeks ago, but for some reason it did not get published... here it is a little late!

I finally turned 25! I have been waiting for this birthday for a long time...I mean how great, one year closer to 30. That is when you know you are old! Totally joking of course, this birthday is definitely anti-climatic and slightly depressing. However despite all of the doom and gloom, I had an incredible birthday thanks to some very sweet friends and my wonderful husband.

My birthday was on Thursday. Yes I am an April Fools baby! So fun, although I am not sure I have ever had an April Fools joke pulled on me, or pulled one for that matter. What a shame. I love practical jokes! :)

One of my very best friends, Aimee brought me donuts in bed! I mean, what is better than waking up to a maple long john and donut holes. I love donuts.

I spent most of the day with Aimee, Holli and Kim. The four of us (+ Evrett, Kim's 6 week old son) went to lunch at Chedder's. I do love that place. Last year my parents came in town for my birthday and we had lunch there. I didn't know that I liked it as much as I do, but it is just great! I highly recommend it. Totally enjoyed this time with the girls.

That afternoon Aimee and I drove to Penn Square Mall in OKC to do some shopping - what a fun time I have with this girl. She is getting married in just a few days and I just love her so much.

Aimee dropped me off with David in OKC and then the two of us went to dinner at Cheever's, a fun contemporary restaurant in midtown. It was so lovely. I cannot wait to go back.

David knew that a great dinner was good, but not great, so he made reservations at the melting pot for dessert. mmmmmmmmmmmmm. This was fabulous. Dipping rice krispies, bananas and brownies in hot melted chocolate and peanut butter. Does it get better than this? Uhhh maybe at Braum's with a peanut butter hot fudge sundae... the jury is still out.

the best surprise was that he had Friday off of work for Good Friday, so we got to have a slumber party on the couch!!! I have begged David to pull an all nighter watching movies on our sweet new couch. And so that is what we did. Well kinda. We may have started a movie and we may have fallen asleep at 12:30 p.m. But it was still a great idea!

Then this is where the weekend gets good. Friday evening he told me that we had reservations on Friday night, because it was part of my birthday... I didn't know any better, so I showered and got ready and tried to guess where we were going. I was surprised when we pulled up to Golden Corral, but I still thought he was just lying to me to get me out the door or something... Then I walked in to a group of friends! You know they are good friends if they will eat Golden Corral on a Friday night!!!

LOVE IT! This was the first time David has eaten Golden Corral with me... and I am so glad we did.

Well that is it folks. Just wanted to say thanks to everyone for all the birthday messages and gifts. I had a great weekend. Thanks again to my fabulous husband who knows exactly what will make me happy: food.

Hope you all had a great Easter!
