February Birthdays

Since Andy is mega busy right now prepping for the American Cancer Society's big event "Fight for Life" this weekend I figure I'll do something constructive (that doesn't involve cleaning) and update my blog.  Horary for blog updates!

For starters, last month was a big birthday month for my family.  With 3 out of 6 family members born in February (both my parents and myself) there's definitely no shortage of birthdays.  To start out the month is my dad's birthday on the 12th!

My dad is one of my best friends.  He's probably one of the people I can most easily relate to.  There's only a select few people that call me just to talk but he is at the top of that list.  Up until recently my dad's worked nights as a prison guard.  He's now retired and has spent almost every day off on some sort of adventure (Arizona, Texas and Mexico).  On his blog, the day he retired, he posted a video of fireworks!

Two days after my birthday, on the 28th, is my mom's birthday.  My mom is the most amazing mom that ever existed!  Last year she climbed Mt. Whitney with me.  Need I say more?  That day was one of my proudest accomplishments and I'm so glad I got to share that experience with her.  She later bought for us two matching patches that I'm very happy to show off.

My own birthday, as you know from my excitement in previous posts, was on the 26th!  I had a fantastic birthday!  Andy took me out on a date.  We went to Chilies and enjoyed some delicious ribs (and FREE chocolate cake) and afterwards we played a couple rounds of foosball.  After that we window shopped for a bit and checked out the book store.  Oh yeah, and he got me a go cart!  It's cool but needs a little work before we can get it running.  I'm really excited for it though and can't wait to take it for a spin.


  1. I hope you're planning to sew that patch on a blanket.

  2. February is a big month of birthdays for us too. I go more broke in Feb over my immediate and extended family gifts than I think I do for Christmas.
    But really Feb is a good month to have birthday isn't it?
    Happy Birthday! You are such a sweetheart. I love ya.
