happy birthday to me (october 9)

and i am an old person now. and i am only getting older. 23 now. wow.

so i woke up and came out of my room and this is what i saw...


josh was pretty proud of this banner, and he should be...


he didn't forget the cake either... (cupcakes are my absolute favorite and these were really yummy)

he even hid out in his office the whole night before working on this adorable card for me (he said that it would be best if i didn't know what he was doing in there so i took his word for it) this is probably one of the cutest cards ever. and he kept on asking me what i wanted for my birthday and i kept telling him "just don't forget when it is and make me a sweet card."

then i opened the present and it had a shirt inside that was real cute and he got me a variety pack of different body washes and lotions. he said he got it for me because i always have a hard time deciding what lotion and body wash to get when we go to the store. (which is totally true i am always looking for at least 10-15 min.) and these are all so nice.
then he lit the tea light candles to sing happy birthday and it was so sweet. (my cat molly licked off half of the frosting on one of them)
then we went to park city to go shopping at the outlets and josh told me i could get whatever i wanted so i picked out a few long sleeve shirts since it has been really cold lately, and i got a really warm jacket, and some cute sock/slippers to wear around the house.
and then after park city we went to provo to go out to eat with some of my friends/old roommates. we went to the pizza factory and they made me a cute little birthday pizza shaped like a "23" but it had pepperoni on it and i don't eat meat so everyone else ate it. haha. and josh got so excited that he chipped his front tooth on a fork when he was biting into the "23" pizza. itwas crazy/funny. i was sad that i never got a picture of my "23" pizza but oh well. i was happy that my friends rachel and jordan came. i love these guys. and they are getting married next month. woo hoo!
then we went to a free outdoor concert/joshua james after the pizza factory in provo. which was lots of fun. i saw a few of my other provo friends there too. then i got sick so we went home. (and i have been really sick with a bad cold ever since)
then the next day we went out to dinner with my dad and my step mom and my brothers and my sister at the olive garden in sandy. it was lots of fun. they all gave me really sweet and thoughtful birthday cards. (danica even signed the card that andrew, mindy, & danica gave me. haha it was so cute)
my mom sent me some scrubs in the mail for my birthday. they are so sweet. the kids at work will love my new halloween and christmas scrubs.

anyway that was my birthday celebration all in a nutshell. i had a great time. thank you to everyone that celebrated my birthday with me this year. it was a great year and a great birthday. biggest thanks to josh though. he knows that my birthday depresses me so he did everything he could to make sure i had the most perfect birthday. thank you sweetie.
