Big Weekend

Anniversary-Birthday 006

Five crazy years of togetherness…

This past weekend turned out to be quite epic! On Friday, John and I celebrated FIVE years together! Holy moly! I can’t believe it’s been that long! We started dating when we were 17 and here we are now…

Anniversary-Birthday 002

Catching up on our holiday reads.

We celebrated with dinner at BJ’s and then strolled Barnes and Noble for a little while. The perfect evening for both of us.

Is he not the cutest little pup you ever did see?

Saturday was filled with time spent with Murphy, the adorable little puppy shown above. He is John’s family’s newest dog and he is an absolute LOVE! We also enjoyed  fabulous wining and dining at Macaroni Grill with John’s whole family – good company, good food, good conversation, great time!

Anniversary-Birthday 015

The most beautiful birthday card I ever received! Thank you, Gen!

And of course, yesterday was my 23rd birthday! First, John took me to Disneyland for a few hours so that I could get my 72 dollar D-Land gift card. Since this is Disney’s year of get-in-free-on-your-birthday, annual passholders like ourselves have the option of either a super fast-pass or a gift card worth one day’s admission to a single park. That took me 0.2 seconds to decide which option I would choose –  money please! The best part of all is that they already have the park bedecked for the holidays and I am telling you – if you ever get a chance, go to Disneyland during the holiday season. It is an absolute wonder to the senses – just magical!

Even the vehicles get in the spirit of things!

Then we went back to my house, where my parents made me an excellent dinner followed by fabulous cake and gifts! I am so grateful to be able to spend time with my family, especially on my birthday. I have a feeling this is going to be a great year!

I went to bed a very happy 23 year old last night…
