We're gonna party like it's your birthday

Yesterday was my birthday and that is the song I woke up to. "Go shorty, it's your birthday, we're gonna party like it's your birthday.........." Brett set my ipod alarm so I woke up to the 50 cent birthday song, it was great! (L, I know you are singing it).

Birthdays get weird when you get older... I'm not sure what it is, but they are just different. My day was simple, thoughtful, and not to extravagant.

When I left my bedroom in the morning Brett has made a trail of photos of us that led all the way downstairs to the kitchen, where breakfast was made :O) There were about 96 pictures in all and the final product was a collage Brett made that folded up into a perfect square. It was so cute and thoughtful, I loved it! I love my husband!

I went to work, we had already celebrate my birthday the week before by having a tasty lasagna lunch, with a rainbow chip cake (what mom always made). They got me flowers and a necklace that I had been wanting since Christmas.

I had an hour massage, it was lovely and relaxing a perfect way to spend time on your birthday.

We went to Red Robin for dinner, it was going to be just Brett and me, but a few friends joined us and it was a wonderful time. I got the ceasar wrap, yum, and the crispy fries were so tasty. I also got to enjoy a birthday sunday while being sung too (that is always ackward).

We finished the night with American idol at a friends house. Turning 26 isn't an exciting birthday, but it was a good day. Plus it was our first family birthday that Maya got to enjoy with is.
