27 Feels So Great

Can ya believe, I am 27 already?!?!
My birthday was Friday (the 25th)
I was extremely blessed that my husband got back from mountain warfare training on Thursday evening!
I was so excited to get to spend my birthday with him.
I feel pretty fabulous at 27, but I've decided that next year, I will be turning 25 again.
Just getting on a treadmill at the gym and having to type in "2-7" for my age is weird to me.

As for making my birthday special...
Nick always comes through :-)
We dropped Dannika off with our neighbors, Joanne and Mike for the evening, and Nick took me out to a romantic night out in downtown San Juan Capistrano.
We are SO LUCKY to live in such a cool city.
Our house is literally walking distance to downtown.
He took me out to eat at the Vintage Steakhouse.
The restaurant is so cool cause it's actually an antique train that they turned into a restaurant. 
Even cooler...
A really nice family that was having dinner right next to us bought our dinner for us because I'm assuming they saw Nick's Marine Corps tattoo on his arm.

So nice to know that there are such nice people out there in a world full of chaos.

The rest of the evening, we went "bar hopping" in San Juan Capistrano.
I put quotation marks around the word bar hopping, cause we only went to two bars that were actually restaurants that had bars in them, and we didn't get all crazy. 
We were responsible adults...I mean, we had a child to take care of after the night was over.
It was crazy busy because it was the day before the Swallows Day Parade in San Juan Capistrano.
It was lots of fun though.

Thank you Nick for making my birthday so special.

And for my birthday, I got a Fendi watch and an IPad 2....
I am one lucky gal!!!

Last year, it was just Dannika and I at the Swallows Day Parade since Nick was in Afghanistan.
I remember thinking the whole day how I couldn't wait till next year when we could all go as a family.
I had so much fun just alone with Dannika last year, that I knew it would be 10 times more fun this year with our whole family.
You can read about my experience LAST year here.

This year, we invited the Yubeta family to join us.
It was so much fun...
but fun.
The kids loved it and so did the grown ups! 
Since we live so close to downtown San Juan Capistrano, we all walked from our house.
On the way back, we stopped at the park to let the kids run around and to wear them out.
I got to be a MOMTOG for the day since Kim didn't bring her camera. 
I had so much fun taking pictures of the kids.

Friends <3

Man...I can't remember the last time we had a family photo

I want a mini horse!
