Birthday Weekend

Adam's birthday was on Sunday and I had a whole birthday weekend planned for celebration purposes! I love birthdays. I love celebrating. I was stoked.

Birthday weekend started right when we got off work. We hung out and he opened a gift (2 shirts). Then we went to Cabella's. We are both wary shoppers...Adam picked some stuff he wanted but is going to buy them online (good thing too...much cheaper. Then we went to Hoppers (way good!) with K-Walk. It was way fun. We lingered and hung out and then headed back to EM.

On Saturday we slept in. I was going to take AK out to breakfast but we had big plans for dinner so we rationed our intake. Adam opened another gift (cylcing gloves). We stopped at his mom's bank and did some banking for 2 hours...changing accounts and beneficiaries...regrouping pretty much. Then we went to my parents' house. They gave Adam a Happenings Book. He was thrilled...still is. He has wanted one for a while. We are freaks. Adam wanted to swim but time didn't permit. We had some Jamba Juice and went to America First so I could make a transfer and spend more money on AK for his birthday. America First then attempted to wreck our weekend by stealing my ATM card because they thought I was a theif because they apparently can't make a decent name change (I can't buy anything online either). After being accused of a felony and having all access to my funds taken (still don't have my debit card) and after a mild melt down...Adam convinced me that my credit card is usable (Heaven forbid...I'm terrified of debt) and we proceeded to Cache Valley.

I had plans to take Adam to the USU football game and to Maddox (best restaurant in the whole world) and then stay in Logan for the night...fate had other plans for us. A grissly wreck on the freeway (pretty sure at least one person died) added about 2 hours to our drive and we missed the game...so we ate at Maddox and had birthday ice cream at Charlies (part of our first date 5 years ago) and headed back down to EM.

Birthdays should be spent doing only what you want to do...so we didn't go to church (judge if you will...but we didn't want to go). Instead we had a lovely breakfast and opened more presents (grill & Casablanca). Adam went for a lengthy bike ride to test out his new gloves while I set up his new grill (which we can't wait to use). After some cleaning up and hanging out we went to his Mom's house to hang with his family and celebrate his birtday and his little brother's birthday. I love hanging out with family and I love love my neices and nephews. It was a great night. After tons of fun, we went back to EM and watched Casablanca. I love birthdays!

Side note: I bought some fall scented scentsy wax and it just came in and I'm jazzed for my house to smell like fall time! I love the fall!

I'm pretty sure I'm not the first person ever to change my name and address...

...so why does my bank blow so much? Normally, I love America First but after this I think I'm closing my account...as great as it is to have all access to my funds yoinked. Thanks dummies. I'm miffed.

Our First Decoration

That's right, folks, tanville finally has a little color. We now have a rad fall wreath...the big kind...not the front door kind. It will live in our kitchen in a few weeks and I'm pumped. Next will be curtains and throw pillows (fabric from ikea...so great...I found some amazing damask fabric elsewhere and even though it's so pretty our house really needs some noise...so the loud fabric from ikea will certainly fit the bill) I shall be crafting. AK will be gone for days hunting with his dad and I'll have to find something to occupy my time with since playing with him won't be an option. Our house is the boss at being really tan and I can hardly wait to get some crazy in there.

P.S. I miss having the internet. Boo.
