My birthday was this past Monday and I've been wanting to do a post on it, but things have been a little hectic to say the least. It all began last Friday...
My husband got a text message and said that he had to go pick up a friend who couldn't find a ride to the airport. I didn't see anything unusual about this considering we are often called for transportation services for guys without a POV. It was pretty late (around 9ish) so I told him to drive safe and hurry home. About 45 minutes later I was getting a little concerned and was about to pick up my phone to call when Mandi started prancing around like she heard him pull up. Figuring he was just home, I just assumed everything was as it should be... until Mandi sauntered to the window and started a deep growl and bark to whoever/whatever was outside. Not 30 seconds later there was a knock at the door...
At this point I was pretty cautious about opening my door at nearly 10 pm while my husband wasn't home. I barely cracked the door open and heard a familiar voice shout "SURPRISE!!!". I nearly peed my pants. My best friend from California surprised me with a trip to see me for my birthday. I was so happy that I started crying tears of joy. You don't realize how much you miss everyone from home until something like this happens.
So anyway, everyone plotted against me and I had no idea that she was coming. The house wasn't clean and I was completely unprepared for guests which made the visit even more chaotic, but it was so much fun too. It was so nice seeing a familiar face from home and catching up on everything that has been going on in our lives. Not to mention I got a lot of shopping done while she was here! It was a nice excuse to spend a little money. =P
Like I said, Monday was my birthday and since having your 21st birthday on a Monday really stinks if the only person you can go out with is your husband that has to get up at 4 am, my birthday became exciting again. Don't get me wrong, I was already excited but after 21 years, I was going to have to wait another week to actually celebrate officially with my husband. So having a friend here in town worked out perfectly!
Here are some pictures from my 21st birthday!
Nicole left Wednesday morning bright and early. Okay, not so bright... it was 5 am. But since then I've been in recovery mode catching up on TONS of laundry, cleaning, and German lessons since I didn't do ANYTHING while she was here.
It was a great weekend and here's a cheers to another great weekend coming!
