On the up and up




Happy Birthday to me! I must say that this year's birthday was quite enjoyable. I slept in until 11 am and just lounged around. ( I am usually not so lazy, but this darn jelly bean in my stomach is keepin' me plum tuckered, and I hit the point at 8 weeks where all I wanted to do was puke) I was feeling pretty nauseous so I tried to lay low, knowing that we were going to dinner later and I wanted to eat! Robb had gone a fishin' at 5 am and when he returned he got down on one knee and pulled a box from behind his back and asked me to marry him again....with a little sterling silver ring. He was so sweet as he explained that was all he could afford...(we are still on the job search) and I wanted to cry because of his sweetness in even getting me anything! My mom and dad were SOOOOOO nice and took Robb and I out to dinner at Le Olive Garden (oh wow, those darn bread sticks are the best-o) and it was a perfect night. Robb had another little surprise up his sleeve when we got home as he brought me out to the patio to see the other present he got me...or rather put together for me. The old chair in the picture belonged to his great-grandpa and was in a shed with other little treasures for a long time. He brought it home 3 years ago and it sat on our front porch of our apartment for those years before we packed it up for China. It had become quite a bit less sturdy while chillin' in our storage unit and so the creative hubby that he is, he took it to a shop, sawed a hole out of it and put a pot in the middle so I could plant some flowers in it and it could beautify our home some day. He is cute.....I just love him. I got some much loved money from my parents and a delicious green bath robe with a duck on it(I love ducks!) So my birthday was awesome...not because of the stuff I got(though that was much appreciated) but for the time I spent with family. 26 and pregnant! (Sounds pretty good eh?)

But your birthday is on the 28th of June, right?! I've wished you happy birthday in my head for YEARS on that day. I hope I haven't been totally off.

Nevertheless, happy birthday! :)

Happy birthday!!! Robb is so adorably cute to you. I love the gifts he gave you. It's so sweet how much thought he put into them. I'm glad your day was so much fun.

So you guys are so cute! Will you tell Rob to talk to Curtis about being romantic and spontaneous. He thinks that to be romantic he has to spend a lot of money that we don't have, but then he doesn't plan anything romantic to go with it, he just says, "Here, Happy Birthday." What a poop. Oh well, love him anyway.
