Feelin’ 22

I know, predictable blog title, but it’s true!
Yesterday was my 22nd B-day and it was FANTASTIC!
 My sweet hubby got of work to take me to lunch at Tucanos!! Mmmmmmm SO DELICIOUS. Everything there is to die for, but I have to say that the grilled pineapple is my favorite. It just doesn’t get any better than that. Then we walked around the Riverwoods Mall. 
Surf Shop pics. (thanks mom for the lulu jacket:)
 I went to Barnes & Nobel with one of my best friends, Shawn (she’s great at recommending books), to pick out some summer reads! Now that school is out for the summer (YAY!) I plan on working out, laying by the pool and doing lots of reading. Sounds so glorious!! 
Scott had the rest of the day planned. He planned for us to decorate my cake together (so fun) but I told him I would help and I wanted him to decorate it:) 
He did a great job. Such a cutie. 
 Then we opened presents 
 I was laughing because I guessed what it was! An organizing basket for our entertainment shelves. (I had been wanting one forever haha)
 Beautiful studs from my stud hahaha
 And my very own softball glove so we can play catch in the park across the street! 🙂
…,and then we went and played catch in the park across the street. It was super fun minus me getting hit in the hand and the knee and accidentally hitting Scott in the side of the head…..
 Then Scott sang the Birthday Song to me (HILARIOUS), I blew out the candles (in just one blow!) and we ate cake!
 Scott drove us up to Squaw Peak to watch the sunset. It was beautiful.
Then we went home, got it our PJ’s and watched my favorite movie, Les Mis. 
It was a perfect day!
Thanks for all the B-day wishes:)
