26 Candles

Happy Birthday to ME! Yes, on Monday I celebrated my 26th birthday and it was a great one. Actually it was the BEST birthday ever! Jon decided to go all out this year. A few months back Jon started talking about this HUGE surprise that he had planned for my birthday. Those of you who know Jon, know that it is hard to believe him sometime or to take him serious. So I shrugged it off and didn't stew on it too much. As it got closer Jon kept talking about this HUGE surprise and he starting telling me clues. He said it was going to TOP all birthdays and I would probably cry when I found out what it was. I began weighing all the possibilities. Was it a vacation somewhere? A new puppy? A really fancy pair of shoes? Were we going sky diving? Was I getting a new car? He actually made me think it was each of these somehow. Well a week before my birthday Jon had time off from work. He stated that he really didn't plan anything and that he probably should start working on something. This is SOOOOO typical Jon. So then I was kinda bummed out cause I was looking forward to my HUGE surprise. But now there wasn't going to be one. Thursday came before my birthday and I came home from work. Jon wasn't home and the house was spic and span. That brought a smile to my face but I was still sad. At 6:00 p.m. there was a knock on my door. I heard Jon outside saying LET ME IN! I walked to the door saying, "SHUT UP I'M COMING MR. IMPATIENT!" much to my surprise when I opened the door Jon was standing outside along with my best friend Emily and her little boy Christopher. Jon had arranged for her and her baby to come for the weekend to celebrate all the way from Utah! I WAS SO EXCITED. I first stood there in amazement not saying anything but then I screamed and jumped up and hugged her. I couldn't believe it. So yes we were able to spend time shopping, watching movies, trying out yummy restaurants and just catching up since we hadn't seen each other in awhile. I thought Jon was done with his surprises but then Friday came. He had been spending time with his cousin who is in the hospital and he called to tell me he wanted to meet for dinner at Red Robin. He was craving and whiskey river hamburger. Emily and I got ready and headed out to meet him at 6:45. Well we were running late like many girls do when Jon called me freaking out cause I was 10 minutes late. I kept saying, "Calm down... we will be there shortly." When we got there I realized why he wanted me to be on time because Jon and about 20 of my friends were hanging out waiting for me! They all surprised me for my birthday! I stood there again amazed with nothing to say, except, "Emily why did you let me come to my own birthday party looking like this?" I had even done my hair for the day and wasn't dressed up like I wanted to be for my own party. Oh well we had tons of fun anyway!!

The entire birthday weekend was fabulous. My boy Jon is so amazing! I want him to know how much I love him and am so thankful for what he did to make my 26th birthday so special. Thanks to Emily as well for coming all the way out to hang with me! I had tons of fun girl! Thanks also to my friend Colleen who helped Jon with the surprise party at Red Robin. You rock!
