Yesterday was my 23rd birthday. Birthday's, for myself personally, aren't a terribly big deal. They come and go quite quickly, but it's still nice to do a few things just to celebrate yourself. I had a very nice day with several people I love and whom I know love me as well.
I started off my day by getting to babysit my cutie patootie nieces and nephew. Sol was asleep for most of the time, but the girls and I got to have a great time together. Those kiddos have a very large piece of my heart and I love them so much! They are simply a joy to be around. It was truly a birthday present for me to get to just hang out with them! After Michael and Ashlee (my brother and sister-in-law) got back home, with a Sonic drink for me!, we all got to hang out for a little while. It was great to just be around some family I love on my birthday.
Later that night Mike and I went out to dinner at an Italian restaurant, Olivetto, with our good friends Chris, Amelia, Ryland, and Jerod.None of us had ever been there before and I love Italian food, so they thought it would be a fun place
to go. It was very yummy food and we had a very fun waiter! He even personally sang "Happy Birthday" to me, slightly boy band style. The boys weren't very impressed, but us girls were... haha! We then got a deep dish cookie with ice cream on top for dessert, which came with five shot glasses of milk. It was so cute! It was a great restaurant and I will definitely be going back!
Like I said, my personal birthday isn't a very big deal to me. I like to just keep things simple, so this was a lovely day for me. I got to be around my loving husband, some of my family, and some of our best friends. What can be better than that?? I am very blessed and am thankful for another year to spend with all of these people.
