Yesterday I turned 27 and I had one of my best birthdays ever! It actually started on Friday night, when I got to see my favorite band from high school!
We had SO much fun!! It was my favorite concert I've ever been to. It was at a really small venue so we were right up front, and I knew basically every song. The only thing that would've made it better is if it had been about 9 years ago, but my 18-year-old self was definitely squealing the whole time.

so sad the flash didn't go off, but here I am with Kris Roe, the lead singer :)
My actual birthday morning started off with a yummy breakfast of Panera bagels and strawberries (don't worry, we didn't eat these all in one day).
Jamie couldn't wait to help me open presents; in fact, almost as soon as I got him out of bed in the morning, he started talking about opening them! He had at least as much fun as I did.
Boy did I get spoiled this year! From my in-laws I got a TURQUOISE immersion blender (and I'm making black bean soup for dinner tomorrow just so I can use it)
and a food processor!
After many not-so-subtle hints, Thomas came through and got me J. K. Rowling's new book. I am trying really hard to have zero expectations and not to compare it to Harry Potter, but I'm still really excited to read it!
And last but definitely not least, Thomas completely surprised me with a beautiful sapphire necklace!!
I am so spoiled!! Thank you thank you thank you everyone for these gifts and for all the cards, calls, texts, and fb messages. I definitely felt the love.

For the first time ever we had babysitters two nights in a row. While Jamie stayed home to play, Thomas and I went out to P. F. Chang's, my favorite. 
I got a free dessert because it was my birthday,
and that was on top of cupcakes earlier and a fruit tart yet to come...
Happy birthday to me.
What a fabulous day it was. Definitely one of my best birthdays.

And on an unrelated note, Jamie and I went to the zoo on our own this morning so Thomas could get caught up on his work (funny how the tides have turned now that I have a complete draft!). I tried to get a picture of the two of us, but someone did not want to cooperate with that....
What a goober :)

    I like the picture anyway, because it shows Jamie's mood at the time, and is cute and interesting. :)
