Happy Birthday to Me!

Pinned Image
Not really, but this picture cracks me up every time I see/think of it!

I am so pumped for this day to finally be here! I woke up at 3:30 (not sure if I was just that excited or I just woke up) and watched TV while everyone else was sleeping soundly. I tore opened my presents at 5:30 while in bed. I thought that one of them may come in handy tonight as a gift card for the ultrasound place so I just needed to open it. (Thanks M-I-L!!).

I have to work all day, but that's ok cuz tonight is when the fun starts. I'm heading out a little bit early (stayed late last night) to go home and pick up Chris so we can go to our first of two 3d/4d ultrasound appointments. I have been waiting for this day to get here for a little over a month and I'm super excited about it! We should be getting the pictures on a CD and a DVD of the pics before we leave the office tonight.

After our appointment (should take about an hour), we're heading downtown to have dinner at The Melting Pot. This is one of our favorite restaurants. I purchased a deal on Living Social last month for $47. We Chris gets 2 glasses of wine and we'll share cheese fondue, salads and the main course fondue. If you've ever eaten at The Melting Pot, you know that's a steal! I may get dessert...depending on how much I've already indulged!

I told Chris that I think I want to pick out my birthday gift. We went to Stillwater on Sunday for me to try and find something for my present, but I didn't see anything I just had to have. Bummer! We did, however, manage to find a place to get some yummy nachos. Chris is still deciding if this has moved up to his #1 nacho. I thought they were amazing. I like more veggies on mine though.

Nachos from Nacho Mamas...this is the large and she warned us that they were huge!

I also made it pretty clear that I wanted to get some ice cream. I've been craving ice cream so much lately!

Ice cream cone from Izzy's - it was very yummy. I got salted carmel, mint chocolate chip (which wasn't mint colored - weird!) and an Izzy scoop of bubble gum on top. I was in heaven!

Now I just need to figure out what I want for my birthday gift....Here's to my last year in my 20's!
