My 27th Birthday!

My Birthday was on December 24th and I am now 27 years old. It feels like such a big number and I don't feel at all 27...maybe more like 20... Alex made me waffles (using a waffle maker and making the mix by hand!)...with some oral directions from me. What a sweetheart! Then I opened my present from him and was so excited to see he had bought me a zoom lens for my Nikon SLR camera (which was his wedding gift to me).

Funny (well actually is not), so ironic would be a better word, story happened the night we started dating (way back in November 2004). I had my Cannon SLR camera with all of it's attachments in my backseat and the next morning my car window was broken and I noticed the camera had been stolen! I have been wanting another one since the first was a high school graduation gift. Now I do!

Anyways, we went to see P.S. I Love You that afternoon. My parents, Kevin and Grandma came over to our apartment that evening and we went out to the Cheesecake Factory for dinner. We came back to our apartment for dessert. Now you are probably wondering why not get dessert at the Cheesecake Factory, but it turns out that both Alex and I are lactose intolerant....so mom made a mud pie with soy ice cream! It was a very special birthday!
