This post is a few weeks late... but better late than never, right?
In my family, birthdays really aren't a huge deal. Growing up, the best part about birthdays was going out to dinner and getting a birthday letter. Those are still my 2 favorite birthday traditions. Last year, Paul forgot to write me a letter (even though I told him it was the only thing I wanted for my birthday). Let's just say I was sad. This year, Paul did not make the same mistake (He's a fast learner).
After I read my letter, Paul took me to Texas Roadhouse for the first time. Oh my goodness. SO MUCH FOOD. It was absolutely delicious. Afterward, we walked around the mall and looked at Christmas decorations. Spending time with Paul is my favorite.
Once we finished perusing at the mall, we headed home. Since Paul has been busy with work, he didn't get the chance to make me a birthday treat. Seeing as I only stressed the importance of dinner and a letter, I couldn't get upset at Paul for not having a cake. I confessed to Paul that I was a little disappointed. The next morning, Paul woke up before me (as usual) and got me mint brownies! We didn't have any birthday candles, so we improvised with a BIG candle.

Before dinner-- not too shabby for being 18 weeks pregnant!
Oh... and did I mention that Paul got me a massage, earrings and Pride and Prejudice for my birthday??
I'm one lucky gal!
