My Birth Week Continued

The celebrations seemed to continue all week. On Monday my mom met me in Cedar Rapids for lunch. It was a lot of fun and a great break from the ordinary routine. On Tuesday Brennan took me to Texas Roadhouse for dinner. Delicious! My parents came over that evening for some delicious cake Brennan made from scratch. Delicious again! And then on Wednesday our friends Kassy and David came over for dinner. Kassy brought me a beautiful flower arrangement in a pumpkin. What a creative idea!

Brennan gave me Band Hero for the Wii for my birthday. Funny story about that...the night before my birthday Brennan and I were at Walmart picking up a few things. We parted ways at one point and I passed Band Hero and it was on sale!! I immediately called Mara, secretly hoping she would talk me into buying it (I'm a tight wad and it's hard for me to convince myself to spend money on fun things). As I got off the phone with her Brennan walked up and so I excitedly started telling him about the great deal we had before us. Brennan is usually just as good as Mara at trying to convince me to buy things like that but his reaction was completely different this time. He just kept asking me to just leave. He wasn't even excited about the steal of a deal I just found! It didn't take me long to put two and two together and realize why I he was being so weird. So.. I spoiled my birthday surprise. But it didn't make it any less great! We have already had a blast rocking out!

My mom and dad gave me a sewing machine. I have no idea where to begin with that mysterious machine but I am so excited to learn! I was sure to ask my mom if the gift came with free lessons from her. She agreed to it, assuring me that it is a piece of cake. We'll see about that. I actually kind of spoiled that surprise as well. When we were at my parents the other day my mom went in the other room to ask Brennan about his present for me. I waited right outside the room and pretended I heard them, even though I didn't hear a thing. When I teased them about knowing what mom's gift was, they asked me what letter it started with. Well since I had no idea what the present actually was I just went with the only guess I had (a sewing machine) and said "s". Haha, little did I know that I completely convinced them that I had heard and I knew what I was getting. Once again, I sort of ruined the surprise, but I still loved it.

All in all I'd say it was a pretty great birthday!
