On the 16th, I turned 24. YAY.

I'm not really big on my own birthday - I never really have been. I'm not one of those "Ugh I'm a year older" people...I guess I just don't enjoy being the center of attention.
{I probably should've checked myself in the mirror before getting pictures taken :P}
Yay for crazy hair and old makeup!

When I was younger, I got to choose a restaurant to eat at for my birthday, but this past year, we've gotten into the habit of staying home for everyone's birthday. The birthday person gets to choose their favorite meals and what cake they want. We had pizza for both kids' birthdays and steak for hubby's. Cami chose a strawberry cake, Matthew chose a chocolate cake, and hubs chose berry cheesecake.

One really awesome thing about my birthday is that it is around the beginning of PUMPKIN TIME!! So I wanted pumpkin French toast for my breakfast and pumpkin cheesecake for my cake. I also made a beef and broccoli stir fry with hibachi style fried rice for dinner. I make my food on my birthday because I do every day and it doesn't bother me in the least bit :)

Nick got my birthday present the day before and it was actually exactly what I thought it would be! I didn't guess out loud ahead of time because I didn't want to be wrong LOL

He hid it behind the fence and told me it was by his car. I was expecting a bike and then turned the corner to see no bike behind the car and I legitimately had my heart sink for a second. I turned around to look at him and he pointed to where the fence was and there it was. It's so awesome! Like seriously. I'm not a girly girl. I didn't want a pink bike...and hubby knew this. It's AWESOME. AWESOME.
