My Birthday!

So the joke is that February is birthday month and I have to admit that we did a lot of celebrating me this month! First we went to Napa the weekend before my birthday to celebrate with Jed and Kathy. We went out to eat at my favorite Mexican restaurant, Don Pericos. Then we went shopping at the outlet mall and just had a great time hanging out. Then my mom came to spend my birthday with me and we went to the outlet mall by us and shopped like crazy! How fun was that?! We also shopped all week while she was here and just did all the things that I love! We went out to dinner at Panera and then of course we went to Coldstone for my favorite Mint mint chocolate chocolate chip ice-cream. It was so much fun. My mom and I also made these cute bags while she was here.

I love how these bags turned out! They were so easy and fun to make. I go the pattern here
So while I was taking these pictures for my blog, a little cutie crept in front of the camera and said "cheese".

Too cute!

Brett asked me what I wanted for my birthday and I told him I wanted a Wii. So on my birthday, we headed out in search of one. We went to all these stores and couldn't find one anywhere. Who knew that it was still so difficult to get your hands on one of these. Brett went in to Gamestop and found out that they were expecting a shipment this week and that basically you just had to call everyday to see if they had them. So on Wed. I called and found out that they had just received a shipment, but the guy wouldn't tell me how many they had or hold one for me. He said "all I can tell you is good luck!". So I had just dropped my mom off at the airport and I cruised as fast as I could to Gamestop in hopes of getting my hands on one of those little babies. When I got there, there was a lady in front of me who had just bought one and 2 other people in line ahead of me. I was so nervous that I wasn't going to get one, but luckily the other 2 in front of me were just buying games, so I lucked out and I got one! Yeah! It is so much fun! We have played it everyday since bringing it home! I love bowling! Here are some pics of us enjoying my birthday present.

Looks like you guys are having a blast with your new Wii. We were so happy to hear that you finally found one. Can't wait to get ours. Found a guitar at Target... it should be lots of fun!
