As most of you know, Andrew's birthday was this weekend. We had a very packed but fun filled time! Friday night we went to dinner with his family at a delicious Japanese restaurant. You know, one of the ones where they cook in front of you, make the onion volcano, the Japanese smiley face, and try (but fail miserably) to catch eggs in their coat pockets. It was a great show and the food was a-maze-ing! Andrew's dad and sister took some pictures so I will put them up as soon as they load them to Facebook.
I promised to show you the gifts I got him for his birthday and lucky for you, I remembered to snap a couple pictures before I gave them to him!
First, I took (seriously) like 3 months to make him a book showcasing our first year and a half of dating. I accompanied the pictures with a story about a boy and a girl and how they fell in love. It's our story and I think it is a wonderful way to remember this very important and beautiful time in our lives. It turned out amazing (I took a couple pictures of the inside below) and he said it was the best present he had ever received (go me!).
If you would like to make one of your own there is a free downloadable program on blurb.com you can use. It can be totally custom, like this one, or you can use a template.
At the back of the book were these:
Voucher's to go SKY DIVING
which we will do when it gets warmer
[if we can find our nerves because right now we are SCARED!]
Saturday I took Andrew out for steaks at Outback and we just watched a movie and went to sleep because Sunday we had tickets to see the Panthers play the Falcons! My good friend John has the hook up to some AMAZING tickets because his dad is the Panthers equipment manager and gave them to us for Andrew's birthday. Even though we lost we had SUCH a fun time and the seats couldn't have been better.
I hope you all had a wonderful weekend!
