One Quarter of a Century

That's how old I am now! My birthday was September 22nd. It was a very fun day. The night before Eric took me out to dinner at Red Robin (I had a free birthday burger there). He invited a few of my closest friends to come which is always great. The day of my actual birthday I had to work, but it was ok because we always have birthday parties at work. The theme of my party was "The Ultimate Cake-Off" because I pretty much became obsessed with cake shows when I was sitting at home watching TV all day after my surgery. Everything we ate was a cake somehow We had cupcakes, crab cakes, corn cake(like corn bread) and then we all had a personal cake that we had to decorate ourselves. That was pretty fun. After work I went home and waited for Eric to get home from school. I got to open cards from everyone who sent them (THANKS!) and then Eric took me out to dinner at the Chef's Table. That is this pretty nice restaurant here in Provo that neither Eric or I had been to before. It was DELICIOUS! After we finished eating dinner, Eric pulled out a box from his pocket. I opened it and inside were a pair of diamond earrings! They are one carat each and so pretty! Ha, got you there. They are NOT one carat each, not even combined do they equal one. They are just little, but they are SO pretty. I love them. Eric knows how to work the jewelers to get good deals. That's a good skill to have! After leaving the restaurant we went home to eat cake. Eric had bought this huge cake but since we had hung out with friends the night before, I thought it was just going to be the two of us eating this cake. Turns out he had invited a whole lot of people over to eat cake and celebrate! It was a lot of fun to see some friends that I hadn't seen in awhile. Thanks Eric for making my 25th birthday great and to everyone who called/wrote me birthday wishes! It was a wonderful birthday.
