Apparently Im Older



And judging by the depressed look on everyone's faces...I guess the fact that I turned 26 was shocking and just plain cruel. 
Seriously, I dont know why we look like we all just had a valium. Maybe it was the crazy candles that we had to split up on 2 desserts just to get them all lit up.

We really did have a fun little party over at my moms. She went all out and whipped up a fabulous lasagna dinner which I inhaled...and then after delicious wheat free cake and caramel brownies we opened some pretty awesome presents. 

My sweet sweet Gabe bought me my third Ipod. Why you ask, would a girl need 3 ipods??? Well if you were me, it would be because you either 1. lose them, or  2. They get stolen.
We are hoping this one sticks around for more than a few months! Its the new 8gb one...in Tiffanys Blue (of course). He also caved and took me to mona lisa for fondue (which usually he calls fon-dont) and he actually really liked it. Im hoping to make this a new bad habit.

My parents gave me a card valid for the stroller and carseat I have been wanting. It goes on sale tomorrow, so Im pretty excited to have the one required piece of baby gear that you actually HAVE to have before they let you be a parent! Before you have a carseat - I swear you dont feel ready. Apparently after tomorrow im ready!

I also Got some adorable maternity clothes from my bff jamie, which sadly, I must exchange due to her delusional belief that I am size  x-small. Man, I love that girl!

Kallie and Curt gave me a much needed gift card to Sephora (my face thanks them! ) And I cant wait to go spend every penny of it! 

Thanks everyone for making me feel so lucky and loved on my birthday!!!

Christy, you and all of your friends are just young whipper snappers. Wait until you turn the big four ooooooooo. Just had a nightmare image of turning forty flash before my eyes.

Happy birthday!!! In your defense I was totally sad when I turned 26. I felt i was no longer in the young twenties and that I officially was in my mid twenties. Its a new box to check when you vote. 18-25; 26-30 yep a new box. IT sucks. But to make you feel better I am turning 27 in July. Happy Birthday.. Hey at least you'll always be Gabe's hot young wife....
