That's how I see that last few months. They have totally gone by in a whirlwind! Since I haven't posted in a while, I thought I'd just share some photos of what's happened since New Year's.

1. I turned 25. And I'm surprisingly cool with that. Ryan made it great by planning a whole day of gifts where I would open one every few hours at work. First, he "made" breakfast aka got me McDonald's breakfast (my favorite) and had me open his first card and gift, a Bananza banana slicer.
I looked at it curiously because I wondered where I had seen this product before and then he said, "I got it for you because you pinned it!" I laughed and couldn't believe he stalked my Pinterest for gift ideas! So great. The next card I opened was at work and it had a PF Chang's gift card inside for dinner that night. The next card I opened right before lunch and it had a McDonald's gift card in it for lunch since he was in class and couldn't take me out to eat. Third was a Hershey's with almond candy bar for a mid-afternoon snack. I was so happy all day at work because he knew all my favorite things! When I got home, he gave me the big presents and another card. First I opened this:

Another Pinterest present! I love this movie and I love this poster. I was thrilled when I opened it! I've framed it and put it on the wall, but we'll save that for another post. The second present I opened made my heart so happy:

Love him. I've been wanting these books forever and now here they are! Gifted to me by my favorite person. Finally, we go to dinner and while we're eating he surprises me with one last gift. I opened the card and my mouth dropped when I saw the two tickets to Coldplay for this summer. COLDPLAY. I couldn't believe it! Granted these tickets were birthday-valentine's day-2 year anniversary gift all rolled into one, but I was still so excited. I'm so thankful for my hubby who loves me and knows me so well and celebrates well. He's made 25 great.

2. Valentine's Day. We're old school so he got me my favorite flowers (tulips) and favorite chocolates (ferrero rochers) and I made him a mix CD. You may think he got the short end of the stick, but he loves my mix CDs. Fo realz. That night, we went on a double date with Kara and Crockett and watched the Vow. Movie was ok, but with me being a girl and all, I could not stop crying and telling Ryan how much I loved him afterwards. I'm sucha sap. 

I also made these cookies for the Women's Systematic Theology group. I thought they were fitting for the day after Valentine's.

3. Lots of school and work....this is self explanatory and I don't have any pictures to go along with it. Soooo yeah. :)

4. Ladies' Night to celebrate Lindsey's upcoming nuptials! We ladies got all fancied up and had a great time talking about EVERYTHING and looking forward to Lindsey and Alec's wedding! I'm so happy for the sweet soon-to-be-married couple and so thankful to call these women friends!

There have been all kinds of other things happen, but I don't think anyone would want to read all that! Hope you enjoyed the highlights and hopefully I get around to blogging more frequently.
