I'm Being Spoiled....And I Love It

Today I turned 27 and it has been the best day ever!!! And it's only 10:30 in the morning.
The celebrations started yesterday with dinner at my parents house. My mom always has me over for dinner for my birthday and she always makes the best food! We had roast and potatoes and a million other good things and best of all, the weather was SO nice we got to eat it out on the deck.

Here is the cutest gift ever that my mom gave me. A fruit basket! And a gift certificate to the mall. Which I'm sure I will use before the weekend is over. :)
My amazing Mom and Dad. The best parents anyone could ever ask for. We are going to miss them SO much while they're on their mission.
Now, for today's festivities. Brandon totally went all out and gave me the best surprise ever. This is what I saw when I stepped out of the shower this morning. He was so quiet, I didn't even hear him in there at all. He went to play basketball this morning and apparently made another stop as well, to get me FLOWERS. Which I LOVE. Then of course there is my favorite cereal, my favorite fruit snacks, my favorite Canadian Chocolate (Big Turks....mmmm), and even though this may not sound too cool to any of you, it was the best gift EVER, blinds to cover our back window! The door in our laundry room has a window and I hate going in there at night because there are no curtains, blinds, or anything to cover it up. So I am super excited to put those up.

After we got ready for the day he took me out to breakfast at my favorite place. Probably only Jessica and Kristi will fully appreciate this, but we ate breakfast this morning at the hospital cafeteria. Sooo stinking good. And there's more behind the story too, but honestly, Brandon couldn't have given me anything better for breakfast. It was perfect!!
When I walked into my office this morning, this is what I saw. My cute friend Jessica put up this banner and bought me balloons and a gift. Thanks Jess, you're the best!
I spent the first hour at work today replying to all the texts and emails people have sent me wishing me a happy birthday. Thank you so much everyone (especially you Bran) for making this the best birthday ever!!!!
