So although I don't feel any different being 24 I really did have a good birthday. It started out with David surprising me a day before with a BBQ at his mom's that they all planned out and did for me. My little sis in law made me a giant cupcake (pictured above, photo taken and edited by my MIL) The food was amazing! My favorite thing to eat over there is my Dad in law's bbq chicken and baked beans and that's what was on the menu!
So Friday, I had no idea what we were doing, I only knew that there was some sort of plan for dinner, so I got ready and waited. Impatiently waited, I'm horrible with letting a surprise stay a surprise, but I let it for the most part. ;) When the time FINALLY came to get in the car, I didn't stop asking questions heehee.. we ended up at David's mom's house of course and I walked in, went to the backyard and I saw huge red balloons the number 24!` I was so surprised! And David's mom was like "go out back there's someone waiting for you!" It was my bestfriend Suzie , her husband and babies! Yay! It was awesome!

On Saturday, my actual birthday, we went out to lunch with my mom and stepdad. They took us to Islands, so yummy! It's a sit down restaurant that serves burgers and other American type foods but pretty nice! I love eating their teriyaki burger! It was fun!
|Noah had a good time there! Being so silly coloring!|
|Loves of my life!|

After shopping we came home, relaxed a little and than went for an evening walk on a local trail we've been going to recently. We walked and talked in the dark and Noah fell asleep. It was nice! Afterwards, we decided to get takeout from Chili's, David recieved a $25 gift card and we decided to use it on my birthday. Can you believe all of this food came out 24 dollars?! And it was so good!

A week before my birthday, David also surprised me by telling me we were going to be seeing Magic the band perform on the 17th! Turns out he was listening to Pandora and they announced a free concert in our city at the airport! I'll be blogging about that soon but how cool is that? With these financially tough times, it's amazing anything is free anymore and I just soak it all up and get what we can for free! You bet we went and enjoyed ourselves to the max! Free chili's, free concert what more could I want?! =)
