Happy Birthday to ME!

This morning I woke up to a yummy breakfast burrito from FOXY'S and a whole lot of chocolate for my sweet tooth from Ben and Benson. It was 7:15 am when Ben came home with breakfast and normally I want to jut lay in bed, for I was too excited and wanted to get up, because simply, it's my birthday and I want to celebrate :)

This is another birthday/mother's day present Ben picked out ALL by himself just for me. He is the sweetest, most wonderful husband to me. He knows me so well.

Do you see that awesome bike seat?!

And the yummy chocolate...
And the birthday card-which has a story. When Ben and I were dating one of the first things we did before we were even dating was country western dance with each other. So when we officially started dating he bought me a painting of this lady dancing like a crazy woman on the dance floor. And well the crazy lady dancing was me :) The birthday card below reminds me of that, and that is why he bought it.

That's me lifting my leg up elegantly while Ben is the one in the top hat dancing. Hahhaha

Oh and well, I found this one in storage and thought I'd share it too. It's a little random. I did this collage of Ben when I was in college for an art class. If you remember Ben back when he had long hair, you would remember this face. We call it "Ben the Hulk". I did green and blue because those are our favorite colors. I need to do one of me and Benson so we could all match, but in different colors.
Enjoy this beautiful Friday, and have a great weekend. Also, celebrate my birthday with me by having something sweet today :)
