I celebrated my 23rd birthday this week (on November 13 for those of you who forgot). I had a nice day. There was a small birthday cake and party for me at work and John and I went out to one of my favorite restaurants on the beach. I received lots of great gifts and cards from everyone. Most of what I received was gift certificates and money which was perfect. I had been working on buying a few things to decorate the house so the money and gift cards went a long way.
John's present to me was neither of the above. He gave me a nightstand complete with an alarm clock and lamp. I had been living without all three since we moved because my old one was converted into our TV stand. I love it. Here I am laying in bed enjoying my present- plus some flowers John gave me. Thanks to everyone who sent me something.
In other news, John and I (mostly me) have been working all day to get ready for our Thanksgiving guests this week. My entire Mosiman side is coming- aunt, uncle, cousins, mom, dad, brother, sister, and grandparents. It is going to be a blast. I am so excited to have them and I am excited to try my hand at Thanksgiving dinner. Of course, we will not be having turkey. We prefer to support our family trade and eat beef!
