My 29th

Today is my 29th birthday!  I am well aware that I only have one more year in my 20's.  When I used to think about being in my 30's it seemed like it was sooo old.  Now, most all of my friends are 30 and here I am, one year away.  So crazy how fast time moves.  I can only imagine once Adalyn comes along, how fast time will fly then!  I did have one thing I wanted to do before I turned 30 and that was to be a mommy! 

My wonderful husband took me out to a new to us restaurant called Rossi's.  It was delicious and we were in a round booth and had the place to ourselves.  (He had tried to make reservations here for our anniversary and had called two weeks in advance and they were booked up.  Guess people don't eat at fancy restaurants on Monday nights! HA!)

Here is a picture in the car before we went inside.  My poor husband had been to the eye specialist and his eyes were dilated (they must have used the strong stuff because after dinner he still had issues seeing from a 2:00 appointment!) so a couple pictures we took looked like his eyes were shut:)
At our table.  I'm just going to go ahead and say it... Yes, that is the same shirt that I wore out last week to Billie's birthday at PF Changs.  Do you know how hard it is to find cute "going out" shirts in maternity?  Well it's pretty much impossible which is why that shirt is from Loft and not a maternity store.  I saw it and just had to have it!  I love ruffles and embellishments and those are few and far between in maternity.  Now I have a problem because I'm going out with the girls Friday night for my birthday and I CANNOT wear that same shirt for a third time out.  Maybe I'll go back to Loft and buy it in another color! HA! 
Here is the "view from here".  My precious husband bought me these shoes last year for a wedding and I never have the opportunity to wear them.  So yes, I did it.  I wore another pair of 4 inch heels.  You all, I have issues feeling dressed up unless I have serious high heels on.  And I mean serious.  And for some reason, even though my feet ache from all this extra weight, I cannot kick the feeling that going out to a nice restaurant means some sexy pumps!
Here's a better view of the actual shoes:)  It was actually J's idea for me to wear them tonight.  I had red pumps on and he thought I should wear pink and I'm glad I did.  Even if I did walk from the car into the house after dinner in my bare feet:)
Last year we had a bit of an issue with my birthday cake.  I'm not going to get into it.  So this year I was soo excited that he got me a VERY cute and VERY delicious cake!!!  How cute is this?

And a belly shot with the cake!  That way I can always remember just how huge I was on my 29th!  Let's just hope I'm not this same size by my 30th:) Hahaha!  Notice that the shoes are long gone.  Dakota really wanted a lick of that chocolate.  Right before J snapped this picture Dakota jumped up and almost reached that cake.  (He jumps like he has springs in his feet!)  I was laughing so hard!
My birthday present was my Canon Rebel a couple weeks ago but J got me a little something to open!  He got me a new case for my iphone which I've needed for months but just haven't gone out to buy one!  And it's cute!  Thanks J!!  And J's mom and sister gave me a certificate for a massage at The Baby Belly.  I'm sooo thoroughly excited to take full advantage of that!!  It's pretty much a dream come true to this fat lady with an aching back!  My parents are bringing my gift in a couple weeks when they come to go to Beth Moore (mom) and paint (dad) but they did send me a certificate for a pedicure!!!  What more could a pregnant girl ask for on her birthday?  A little technology and a lot of pampering!  Just what the doctor ordered:)

HAPPY, HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!!! Sorry I'm such a BAD friend. I have been on the computer LIMITED times and I feel awful. I don't know how mom's do it. I've only had Jorgen during the day when my sis has VBS and I can't get a thing done. AHHHH!! I LOVE it, though.

Anyway, it looks and sounds like you had a wonderful time with J! He's such a terrific husband.

Again, Happy Birthday!! :)
