My 23rd Bday!

My birthday was February 19, 2011 and I turned 23 years old! So dang old... 
Anyways, earlier in the week Kevin told me he had some of my birthday day planned, and he told me the plan the night before.
This is what he planned (so cute haha):
9- Walk/Run
10- Breakfast- my choice of Denny's OR breakfast at home made by him (I had a free birthday meal at Denny's)
11- Presents
1- My choice of the Rock Quarry OR Provo Beach Resort (indoor surfing/mini-golf/bowling/laser tag...etc) AND if I want Baseball BP
6- Dinner
7:30- Cougarettes Dance Performance at the Covey Arts Center
10- Dessert
10:45- Movie

This is what we did:
9- Walk with Katinka to the park and back and yes we let her off her leash and thankfully she came back to us!!! Confession: I have not been walking her as much as I used to...ever since we lived here I have not really wanted to walk around this neighborhood...haha. But she sure does love to mark her territory!
10- Kevin made a smiley face breakfast! Cinnamon rolls *my fave* and pancakes and bacon...as you can see all of this! Breakfast is seriously one of my favorite meals...I love all of the food! He was going to cook eggs but we realized we used all of them in the tiramisu earlier the week!
11- Presents- You can see Kevin was really excited bringing in my presents...he put them in this red gift bag and acted like Santa haha.
Whatever Kevin gets me I LOVE! I just love when he thinks about what I would like or use or need and surprises me! He got me a Neuschwanstein castle puzzle (2000 pieces) and you probably don't know that I love to do puzzles.  Growing up, my family randomly had puzzles, like on the dining room table, and we would work on them occasionally.  We worked on a sweet one over this past Christmas break up in Breckenridge...here and here.  Anyways, I love Germany, and have been there twice, and have been to Neuschwanstein once and so he picked the perfect puzzle for me! I said I wanted one over Christmas break and totally forgot so it was a pleasant surprise!
I also got a mouse because Kevin stole my computer mouse like a year or so ago and he uses it a lot and he thought I could use one...bringing it on campus and what not...so thoughtful! And of course it is pink because I am a girl...
Don't judge because I am so white and not wearing makeup haha.
I also got spoiled by my parents and got a.......
If you have any favo mixing recipes please hook me up :)
I'm pumped. I've always wanted a Kitchen Aid mixer.  Maybe because it is pretty but maybe to use to help cook.  I am in a cooking class at BYU right now and I think it is helping me learn a lot and helping me want to cook more so that is good! Anyways, I am going to use this ASAP!
1- Then we went to the BYU Baseball field and Kevin pitched to me...I was always the kid who struck out in Junior High so I didn't really like Baseball, ever.  But then I married a BYU Baseball player and learned to love it.  Now that I have a baseball player husband I realized I'm not a righty but a lefty.  So now I am legit. Ask Kevin.
Oh, and we are going to go to the Provo Beach Resort sometime later...I wanted to spread out of the funness and not wear ourselves out entirely!
2ish- We watched some of the BYU Basketball game :) And BYU won.
4- Come home to get ready to eat dinner
5- Go to Red Robin (I had a free burger) and walk around the mall...wishing I had time to try on cute clothes at Gap.
6- Eat a fabulous meal.
Don't judge our weird pictures.
7:30- Cougarettes in Concert! I LOVE watching them...they are SO talented! Whenever I go to dance performances it gets me all pumped up and wanting to get into dance again!!! (I did minor in it)
They did do this dance.  Yes I am jealous.
Cougarettes 0902-27 049
10ish- Watched I Am Legend (started the movie the night before) and I got super tired and fell asleep snuggling with Kevin...
And that was my birthday!  Happy 23 to me!  A great day to Kevin because of all his hard work planning it! It was so thoughtful!  Thanks everyone who wished me a Happy Bday! It was great!


  1. Happy Birthday!!! That's so funny, I just turned 23 the day after you!!!! I love all the free food! Glad it was such a fun day for you.
