best husband, ever!

Sunday, July 29, 2012

Adam asked me to title this blog post "BEST HUSBAND, EVER" and I happily obliged. He spoiled me beyond belief for my birthday this year!!

My official birthday was Thursday (the big 2-4!). My fabulous new employer let me work from home and only work a half day! So we met up with my mom, brother, aunt and cousins for lunch at Guston's Grill. Nothing fancy, since we'll be doing my family birthday sometime later - my dad was in San Francisco swimming the Alcatraz Sharkfest to raise money for Alzheimer's Georgia Chapter (he finished in 47 minutes this year!). Then we spent some time at the pool before heading home to get ready for the Lassiter Baseball Coaches' cookout.Yes, you read that correctly - I sacrificed my birthday night to attend a coaches' cookout!  However, the food and the company was great so it could have been much worse. :)

Adam made me a DELICIOUS birthday dinner on Wednesday instead. Holy amazingness - flank steak, asparagus, baked potatoes, my favorite wine - Kim Crawford Sauvignon Blanc, and surprise cupcakes! YUM.

And look how artsy my handsome hubs is? I am a sucker for homemade gifts and I luckily strategically married a handyman. He got the idea from Pinterest, specifically here, and we'll fill out the rest of it together.

I received two guest passes to the High Museum for my birthday last year and Adam and I were finally able to use them on Friday (I got the day off work!). Neither of us had ever been, and it was pretty awesome! I loved the photography exhibit and now I really want the guy's book - Up and Down Peachtree, Photographs of Atlanta.

View of Midtown from the High.

Ok y'all, have you ever been to Antico Pizza? It's constantly written up as the best pizza place in Atlanta, and I've been dying to take Adam! The guy loves cheese and pizza. We went after the High and it definitely lived up to the reviews! Someone recommended the San Gennaro, so we went with that. YUM.

SATURDAY... oh, Saturday. We started the day by hiking up Kennesaw Mountain with Ruthie. I'd never gone up the mountain before and it was quite the feat.

Needless to say, once we made it down all I wanted to do was go home and lay down in the A/C. Instead, Adam decided he needed new flip flops from Target, and then he needed to get gas at Costco, and then he needed to go the LONG way home. Did I mention we were in the truck with NO A/C! I was about to lose it and was getting super annoyed. Then we stopped at the grocery store up the street because he needed to get something else - UGH.

When he got in the car, he handed me a blindfold and told me I had to put it on. At this point I obviously knew something was going on. I knew he had been planning something for Saturday night, but it was only 1pm at this point. Then I started to get annoyed again because I was sweaty and disgusting in my workout clothes and was not looking to waltz around in that outfit. We drove back to the house (he didn't even try to throw me off with a wrong turn or anything - which I appreciated. Remember, no A/C).

He walked me up the driveway, and SURPRISE!!!!!

Thanks to Madi for these pictures capturing my SURPRISE! The first thing I did when Adam proposed was throw my hands up to my face - I guess that's my go-to look.

He and one of my very best friends, Dominica, had been planning this surprise party the whole time!!! And here's the best part...

Holy cow - seriously the BEST birthday, ever!! Side note: turns out TuTus are waterproof!

Playing Flip Cup Olympics!

Friends from North Carolina, South Carolina and Florida all made the trek to surprise me!

Taking the last plunge of the night with the hubs! 

We even got Ruthie to go down the slide once! Once she figured it out, she loved the pool!

Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU to world's best family and friends for being a part of this epic day! I love you all!
