Twenty Eight

I love birthdays. I love MY birthday. But I kind-of had a weird birthday this year. It was Yesterday. 

We went out Friday night with the Millers and had a great time. Who couldn't have a great time at the Cheesecake Factory?! 

But I'm going through a weird stage in my life which involves obsessing and worrying about the number of kids in our family. Have you ever seen the Disney movie Tangled? The scene where Rapunzel goes back and forth between feeling empowered and guilt for leaving the tower SOOOOOO sums up how I'm feeling and for some reason I was majorly struggling with this Friday night.

(P.S. you know how married people start to look more and more like each other the longer they've been married?.. I feel like Jake and I are starting to get there, lol!)

At least I looked cute and Julia gave me a hat :)

The young women in our ward came and heart attacked my front door Monday night and I saw it first thing in the morning on my birthday because Breckie was up at 5 am. 

Jake brought me home Cafe Rio salad and Kneaders brownies for lunch. It was a nice surprise!

Breckie and I hung out while Everett was at preschool and Breckie even told me "Happy Birthday!" I recorded it on my phone and it's totally cute!!
I made dinner and then we had "ice cream cake"

And then we took the 'it's-someones-birthday' family picture... except we took five because we couldn't get Breckie to look at the camera. 

So… my day was great. But it just never really felt like it was my birthday. I don't know??!

It was probably because Breckie woke up so early and there wasn't like a moment when birthday things were consolidated into a "birthday event." Dinner was on Friday, Jake gave me my (AMAZING!!!) unwrapped gifts randomly on Saturday, and there just wasn't a cake or 28 candles or a birthday card on my birthday.

  I feel dumb saying that my day was great and not great at the same time.

I probably sound like a huge snob but apparently those things matter to me more than I thought because I cried two different times about the lack of birthday on my birthday!

  Sounds like I just need to get my emotions under control but I've always looked forward to my birthday and this year it just came and went in a bunch of different pieces. 

The hilarious thing is that I got this birthday card in the mail from my mom last week:

Haha, it was like a fortune cookie birthday card! She also texted me a picture from a birthday past… apparently I've always been a big fan of stripes :)
