Happy Birthday to Bonnie!

I just have to tell you how cute Jon is. He made my birthday so special! We went to the gym in the morning and ran three miles, which I felt was an awesome way to start my 27th year of life!!! (Crazy, now I'm in my upper twenties - ahhhhhh!)

Then we were off to do something, but the only hints he gave me were that I should wear kind of grubby clothes and not put on makeup because we were going to do a service project. He also told me that it was downtown by the Gateway Mall. So, as we ate lunch at a place called "The Soup Kitchen" I thought I was very smart in figuring out that we were going to feed the homeless. It all made sense because we had talked about going to do that anyway, and it's right next to the mall. So Jon let me believe that and I tried to convince myself that it was a cool idea for a birthday.

Anyway, we drove downtown and right past the shelter. Huh? It turned out that Jon and scheduled a couple's massage for us in the mall. He even made Creme brulee, my favorite, for them to bring in to us afterward. It was the perfect way to enjoy my day. Then we had dinner with my family and called it a night... not too eventful, but absolutely perfect!

So Bonnie, I must ask - are you living in Utah? For some reason I was under the impression that you had moved away!

And for what its worth, I absolutely love The Soup Kitchen. I go there all the time during work.

Yep I am still here! Just waiting to hear from Denver, but for the immediate future here we are! Go utah!

Happy Birthday, Bonnie! (And I totally thought you moved to Denver, also. Didn't you blog about already moving out there?)

Correction ... sorry for the miscommunication. We DID move, at least all our stuff. But then the stupid company told us they didn't need us yet. So, here we wait in my in-laws' basement. With no furniture. But here we are! :)
