I was going to put the blog post title as SURPRISE!!! But I thought most people would think it was about something else. :) So let's just be honest here, I was not so happy to share my birthday this year with Father's Day. I know, that sounds horrible, but sorry! I did feel horrible when Josh asked if I was cooking a special Father's Day meal on Monday since I didn't Sunday. Whoops, dropped the ball on that one! I told him when we get back from the beach I will cook him a gourmet meal. Which is great for me too because I've been spending a lot of time on this site and I want to make everything on it! Anyways, so I wasn't really "bummed out" because I had gotten the coolest present EVER, but I was just kind of sad that my birthday wasn't really recognized since it was on a Sunday and the same day as Father's Day and we didn't get to celebrate with friends like normal. Well, Josh TOTALLY surprised me tonight. He told me that his dad and Jeanette were coming to take us out to dinner since they still had by bday present. They asked where I wanted to go, and if you know me, you know I HATE choosing a place. So I told them to pick since I didn't like choosing and I would let them know if I didn't like it. Scott suggested Cantina Laredo, which I'm always game for. We showed them my new camera and what awesome pics it takes!
Addi was pushing them together to kiss. SO CUTE. She was doing this with a boy and girl Barbie the other day also. It kind of scared me at first, but then I realized she watches Josh kiss me goodbye everyday when he goes to work so it's just really sweet.
Once we got to Cantina, I noticed this guy in the parking lot and I was like, man he looks ALOT like Kris Allen. Well it was! More on that later... So when we walked in I was wondering to myself if that really was Kris Allen and I didn't see Scott and J and Josh step to the side to let me go in front and I looked up and I thought I saw Evan (one of our friends who I thought was in Hawaii) and looked down then did a double take and saw the whole table full of friends!!! I was SHOCKED!!! I couldn't believe it and I was so happy that everyone came out. What is funny is two years ago, Josh did the same thing for my bday, even at Cantina Laredo. Haha, I guess I'm just easy to surprise?
This was our, what if Kris Allen was behind us?!
At one point, the manager carried Addi around since she was DONE with sitting still. This happens most everywhere we go. I feel bad because she reaches for people and most of them feel obligated to pick her up? Haha! She was so funny though, she just LOVES to be the center of attention so she did a couple of her signature moves at the table.
So I never got to talk or get a picture with Kris Allen. Turns out today was his birthday and he was there with his fam celebrating and 1. I am PAINFULLY shy when it comes to celebrities. Not that I've ever met one, but once I thought I saw Paula Deen somewhere and I almost hyperventilated trying to think of what to say to her. 2. I felt bad and didn't want to annoy him by interrupting his bday dinner. I've heard he is such a nice and down to earth guy, I'm sure he would have obliged, but I just couldn't. :)
I got some wonderful gifts and I really enjoyed seeing and talking with everyone! Thank you to everyone who came out and a HUGE shout out to Josh for being the BEST husband on the planet and for being just one of the most selfless, supportive, loving and kind people out there. I'm SO lucky to be married to this guy y'all. He is amazing. Wow, did I just renew my wedding vows?
And I realize that I sound like a major brat saying I didn't feel like my birthday was recognized, because y'all should see my facebook wall and texts. I am blessed!!! I'm just a brat. :)
Hope y'all had a great day!!!
The Pioneer Woman Day!
