Birthday Wrap Up

This birthday was great - turning 31 was better than turning 30. But it started out a little sad because the morning of my birthday, Darren had to leave on a business trip. No bueno. But I figured it would be okay, I was headed to Disneyland to meet my friend Sara for lunch and my $69 merchandise card (if you are a season pass holder and don't want a free ticket, they give you a gift card). 

I was rushing because I was short on time and I was on the phone with Sara walking through the entrance to Disneyland, scanning the crowd. She told me she was standing to the left and I saw this:

Darren standing there with a giant lollipop. Turns out he wasn't leaving until Saturday but had packed a suitcase and told me that he was leaving for a few weeks.  I was so surprised!!!!

So we spent some time at Disneyland - Space Mountain and then we headed over to the California Screaming and Soaring Over California. It was so much fun - there was hardly any  wait and it was such a fun way to spend my lunchtime! I also spent my merch. credit on 4 dvd's - apparently you can't buy churros with the gift card. 

Then that night, I had a quiet little dinner and Sprinkles cupcakes (thanks Nan!). 

Perfect Day.

Way to go Darren! I don't know your cute wife, but happy birthday Nikki! 31 happens to be my number right now too and it's a great one!

I just recently got connected with Amanda on facebook and noticed your blog link on hers. So glad to see that things are going well for you! I see you guys recently spent some time in HI. We haven't been there since our honeymoon, but I have a couple of good friends that live there and would love to go back and visit. Hope you don't mind me checking in on your life. I suppose you wouldn't have a public blog is you did. Feel free to check in on our family!
