Birthday Wishes

I have loved ballet since I was a little girl. So it was appropriate for Josh to surprise me for my Birthday with tickets to the Nutcracker. And it was everything I pictured it would be. Josh was a good sport and didn't complain through the entire show. I consider him being there with me half the gift, seeing as I know he suffered through it.
 

I have had the pleasure of sharing my Birthday with my very own twin brother. From when we were kids, my mom has gone all out for us. She is big on parties. One of my favorites being the limo party she surprised us with when we were 15.I can't believe that was 12 years ago This year my mom made an amazing meal and an Alaskan ice cream pie to top it off.
 

Josh's family has a tradition that when there's a Birthday, the spouse makes dinner for the entire family. So Josh worked really hard picking up the phone and making reservations at our favorite restaurant "Asian Star". I wonder what I'll be doing for his Birthday this year.

Happy Belated to you, Janelle! I have never been to the Asian Star, but have always wanted to go. I took Jacob to "Romeo and Juliet" in Ballet at Capitol Theater and it was like pulling teeth for him. . . and then we went to the Nutcracker once as I recall too. He said that I could go with the girls next time. That is great that Josh was such a sport. Jacob does like opera and musicals though - or at least he is still willing to go to those with me :)

I have been thinking a ton about you! There's a girl on "The Bachelor" who reminds me SO MUCH of you! Cheesy, I know, but when we catch an episode, I think, "Man, I wonder how Janelle is doing."
