My Special Day | Anchors Aweigh


My Special Day

I decided that was the most appropriate name for this blog post because all day Saturday, I pranced around reminding Parker that it was "my special day!" Let's face it, when it's your birthday, you get a free pass to be as obnoxious as you please.

I am two days into being 26, but so far, I can't complain! I had a great little birthday/Valentine's Day so I thought I would do a quick rundown of the weekend, according to the lens of my iPhone. 

We started the evening off with a little birthday dinner to the Cheesecake Factory! We never eat there so it was something fun and different and it meant I got cheesecake at the end. Winning. After more thought than should probably go into a dessert choice, I decided on the Key Lime Pie Cheesecake. I am typically a chocolate girl through and through, but this one sounded too good so I went with my gut, literally. 

Saturday morning, I laid out little goodies for Parker and the pups to wake up to. Yes, I gave the dogs clearance Christmas toys. They didn't know the difference and those toys got de-fluffed in 5 minutes just like the Valentines Day toys would have. They were happy campers! I gave Parker a couple of love gifts, including a shirt that he will most likely return. He is oh so difficult to buy for. He knows what he likes, and I have about a 50/50 shot of getting it right. It's the thought that counts with this guy. You can't see it, but the receipt is laying right on top of the shirt. 

I then decided I'd been up for 30 minutes and it was time for birthday presents. That's waiting long enough, right? I always like hearing people's reaction when they hear my birthday is on Valentine's Day because it's usually either "oh man, that stinks for your husband" or "your husband lucked out". It depends on how you look at it, I suppose. We have never been ones to go all-out for Valentine's Day. It's my birthday which means I don't really care about the holiday, and Parker is a guy which means he doesn't really care about the holiday. However, he is always so sweet about getting me a little love gift for Valentine's Day and birthday presents so I don't feel short-changed. If that means more chocolate, I will take it. 

So I have a twin sister, right? Well this year for our birthday, our husbands got together and decided to knock it out of the park. They bought us Taylor Swift concert tickets! Not only do we get to go see our girl TSwift, but we get to spend time together. Best birthday present ever. We are over the moon and counting down the days until this concert. As my twin said, TSwift had a blank space, so she wrote our names. 

Opening presents works up quite the little appetite, so I made a Valentine's Day breakfast for Parker and I to munch on.

The rest of the day was spent hanging out together, enjoying a little lunch date, and just taking it easy. Oh yes, and the pups did this all weekend. Life is ruff.

Saturday evening we went to a 1940s themed dance that was a ton of fun. I'll do a separate post later in the week, but here's a little sneak peek.

Thank you for all of the sweet birthday wishes! I had a wonderful day!
