I celebrated my 28th birthday on the 28th of December. I have been excited to celebrate my Golden birthday. When I would tell people about my upcoming birthday, I would mention that I just wanted something gold.
On Saturday the 27th Bob and I went to the BYU basketball game with my parents. Andrea watched the girls and it was nice to get away for a few hours baby free. We met the rest of my family (babies included) at Pizza Factory for dinner. Before we left they asked me what I wanted for my birthday. I told them I wanted the cinnamon bread. When we got home and opened it up, I was pleasantly surprised that they thought I had said it was my 20th birthday and not my 28th.
Sunday was my birthday and we went to church. When I got to Sunday School my partner teacher Liz told me we were going to her house for the lesson. She had baked me a pumpkin dessert since it was "Golden" and we had a lesson while eating dessert. It was so sweet. (Side note, I took Ruby with me and the diaper bag. When we left Sacrament Bob asked if I was taking the diaper bag, and I told him I was. He said Olivia would probably poop in nursery. I didn't think anything of it and when we got back to church I was nursing Ruby in the mother's lounge. I found a bunch of texts from Bob telling me he needed a diaper. And that he couldn't find me. Whoops!
After church we went over to my parents house and had dinner. My request was shrimp cocktails and tacos. After celebrating my birthday in Mexico for year, some traditions should just be kept. The cocktails were simply divine and I was lucky to be the recipient of the leftovers. I was definitely spoiled.
Some of my good friends in my ward celebrated my birthday a week later. We had a great evening talking books, going to a book signing, eating healthy snacks, and playing cards. Katie put everything together and she even got me gold balloons! It was a great night.
