Golden birthday for my golden boy

30 years old, on the 30th... Happy Golden Birthday, my love! 

 By the time I woke up, around 8, Brady was long gone at the gym. He was supposed to wake me before he left, so I would have enough time to get his presents wrapped and ready to go... but apparently I looked too angelic (very doubtful). Ha! He hates waking me up.   Notmally I would have prepped everything ahead of time, but he is on his summer break, which means we ae together 24/7! It’s not like I can just go in the other room.. ha!  Anyhow, I hopped up right away and got to work. I had about an hour to decorate, wrap his gifts, and clean up the apartment. I wasn’t feeling so well, so this was tricky, but I managed to get at least this corner looking decent! I did run out of boxes, and wrapping paper, so I just handed him the rest of his gifts. So make-shift! Haha! Makes me laugh.

His only birthday requests were: a day of relaxation, a nap, and rainbow chip birthday cake. And thank heaven because mid afternoon rolled around, and I was feeling so sick. I am so glad we didn’t have big plans and I could take a nap, too. I made him a mini cake with the most fun sparkler candles, and I sang to him. We spent most of the evening FaceTiming with family and watching the Utah game.

He’s the cutest thing. Love him beyond.

Happy 30th Birthday, B. You’re the best there is, I’m sure of it. Thanks for being you. I have a feeling this is going to be a big year for you. Truly golden. 💛✨

Four Years

Hard to believe it’s been four years since the day we committed to each other forever. Also hard to believe it’s only been four. Life before Beady feels like a blur. I don’t really know how I ever lived without him. He is my best friend, and the most wonderful husband I could have ever asked for. I don’t think anyone could complete me like he does.

We started off the day with a trek to Absolute Bagels. We have both been wanting to go try it out for a couple years now, but just never made it up there! We got two bagels to share. A raisin bagel with blueberry cream cheese, which was heavenly. And an everything bagel with jalapeño cream cheese and tomato... which wasn’t so great. I had high hopes for the second, but it just didn’t do it for either of us.

We went from Bagels to the Met, and spent most of our afternoon walking around. As we waited for our car to head home, we shared a strawberry shortcake ice cream bar from the ice cream truck, ha! I can’t remember the last time we had something from an ice cream truck. It was a million degrees outside, and the humidity was no joke. So brutal. But that didn’t stop us! We headed home for a nap, before we left for dinner.

I can’t believe it was my first time to the Met. I was in heaven. I absolutely LOVED it, so much more than I thought I would. It was pretty magical. I can’t wait to go back.

My very favorite room, gave my chills.

We tried to decide on a dinner spot for over an hour, and weren’t coming up with anything. Sometimes this city has TOO many options. We ended up at Emmy’s squared- where I had planned on taking Brady for his birthday, just a couple days later. Final review- not my fav. But Beady liked it, so I was happy. Burgers and pizza are very much his thing! If he is happy, so am I, truly. 

 Ended the night with some ice cream at Morgenstern’s. The Strawberry Sour Cream Rubard was delicious.

Overall, a wonderful day. I love my life with Brady. He is my perfect match, and truly the best person I know. He is always serving me. Constantly taking care of me, and making sure everything runs smoothly. All on top of being an amazing dental student. Life is hard, but he makes it easier, better, and so much happier. I could honestly go on forever, I’m just so grateful to have him. I really don’t know how I got so lucky. I love you Brady Perdue, with my whole heart. I know this next year will bring so many wonderful things for us. Graduating, and having a real job... a new home, hopefully a baby, and so many beautiful memories. I also know it’s going to be tough, and I’m certain more trials will be thrown our way, but as long as we stick together I know we can conquer it all. Happy Four Years, and here’s to so many more.
