I certainly haven't accomplished everything I have wanted to do at this point in my life, but then again when are you EVER going to accomplish everything you want by a certain age? NEVER! It wouldn't be called life if it always went as planned. I have always loved the quote, "If you want to make God laugh, tell him about your plans."
My husband knew that I was having a hard time with this transition this year so he worked really hard to make my day extra special full of great surprises! We woke up early on Saturday and had to be out of the house by 8 am! He had the dogs jump into the truck. I was super excited because I thought my furbabies were coming along on my day. Then 2 minutes later we arrived at where we board our dogs. Mike had them boarded for the night. So weird...why would he board the dogs? Hmmm. So we go on about our day. He surprised me by taking me to the Houston Zoo. He had gotten me a membership so I can go anytime I want through out the year... fun! I had a great time. Got to see the animals in the morning where they are the most interactive.
Love Elephants! This was the trainer giving this soon to be mommy elephant a bath! She is due in the Fall!
This one was a 4 year old young elephant. It was funny because he was playing with the dog that stays in the elephant's mansion. He was soo cute!
I love how this bear is all cool and relaxed. Not a care in the world! Even though he is about to fall off the edge of this big wall.
We saw many more animals that day. It was great weather to go to the zoo! Later that night Mike surprised me with a dinner with all friends and family at a Korean restaurant. I have always wanted to share the Korean food cuisine with my friends and family. It was a lot of fun and then it was off to dancing some country music!
Not actual photo of the day we ate, but it is the same thing. We ordered for dinner Kal-bi and cooked it at our table. Sooo good!
With my best friend from college! She is so awesome! I love her!!
I heart him. He always gets me to do my goofy smile. Had a great time!
After the dancing I thought we were on our way home and Mike tells me he got a room at the Hilton in Galveston. So awesome! A mini getaway. We then get there and we were told something was wrong with our room and they would send us to another hotel and they of course would pay for it. Sweet! After that Mike tells me we were going to Schliterrbahn, an indoor water park, the next morning. Never been, but I knew it would be a blast!
It was funny walking in sweats pants to the water park. Then peal my clothes off wearing my bikini. We had a so much fun! It was cold in some parts, but it was a nice warm 80 degrees in the park. Couldn't beat that weather during our recent bipolar Texas weather.
What an eventful weekend good thing. I took 2 days off! I needed the recovery day on Monday. So awesome!I have to say this was one of the best birthdays I had in a long while. My husband did an excellent job in making feel okay with being 27 aka my late twenties. Thanks babe!
....oh and I got a new phone (HTC Hero) for by birthday!! Finally I can take photos and get all sorts of cool apps. The best gift ever!! I love it!!!
