Well it is true, I turned 28 this past weekend. But to be honest I couldn't be happier. I am not sure why people get so upset about getting older because to be honest I think life gets better with age. My life is so different from how it is now compared to when I was in my lower 20's. Believe me I would not go back. I mean I enjoyed it but I sure am enjoying everything happening now much more.
So the weekend started off perfect. I took a half day at work and the future hubby and I headed to the courthouse to get our MARRIAGE LICENSE!! It really sunk in that we are really getting married in less then a month. We of course had to get a picture outside of the courthouse.
That evening we met with my aunt, her husband and my parents to have dinner at Thai Spice to celebrate my birthday. If you read my blog you know that if I get to choose where we eat, it's gonna be Thai.
The next day was actually my birthday so the future hubby took me to lunch, just me and him. He of course let me pick so I wanted to try somewhere I had never been before. So I chose Frog's Leap. It is downtown and everything they cook with is all from local farms. Even all the seafood they get from NC. I love to be able to support local businesses so I will defiantly be going back.
For an appetizer we had bacon wrapped dates. He had no clue what they were but if he hears the word bacon he wants them. But he was not a fan of the dates. So he ended up eating the bacon and I ate the dates. Team work baby, team work!
There were not a lot of low carb options so I ended up getting the sushi.
It worked out because I just scrapped of the tuna and salad on top. Isn't this dish pretty though?
After we finished we met up with my mom so that me and her could do a little shopping so the future hubby went to my parents house to take a nap.
We got so much accomplished!! First and for most, I was able to find all of my bridesmaids their gifts. Thank goodness. Then I also found my dress for the rehearsal dinner. And below you can see I found my lingerie for the wedding night. haha joking!
We also went and had a trial run for my hair for the wedding. I LOVE IT but sorry no pics :)
After we finished shopping we headed back to my parents house to have a nice, relaxing evening.
When Shaun asked me what I wanted for my birthday, it was easy.
Please just build me a fire and relax with me. If was so cold in the mountains so I could think of nothing else I wanted to do.
My man knows how to build a fire.
My best friend also came over for dinner so we all enjoyed sitting by the fire while dinner was being cooked. Marble obviously didn't want to be left out.
Dinner was my one of my favorites, Kabobs. My dad doesn't like grilling them so we only have them once a year, my birthday!
After our bellies were stuffed I got to open some presents,
and blow out my candles. All my wishes have come true this year so it was hard to think of one. (so cheesy, sorry I had to)
I let everyone else enjoy the cake.
My sweet mom. I am slowly but surly turning into her twin.
My little mountain goat & bff.
I will never be too old to sit on my daddy's lap.
One of my friends/ bridesmaids decided to color me a picture for my birthday. I have the best friends ever.
The next day we went to church with the preacher that will me marrying us and then out to lunch with him and his wife where we had our marriage counseling. We passed!! It really did show me that I was picking the best man in the world for me. I will be honored to say that he is my husband.
Afterwards we headed back to SC where me and Miss Motor snuggled the rest of the day while watching movies.
