Twenty One

I was excited to see what Jeff would do for my birthday. We had agreed the Wii was going to be both of our Christmases, Birthdays and Valentines Days, (I'm becoming more and more like my mom every day) so I was not expecting much. Last month I won dinner for two and two movie tickets from a work competition, and we had been saving those for this weekend. We don't have a lot of money to spend, as you know if you've been keeping up with our blog, so I figured dinner and a movie would be the extent of my birthday weekend.

Friday night we went to dinner at Rusty's Ranch House where Jeff and I each ordered Filet Mignons. (Free present #1) We wanted to be as eccentric as we could with our empty wallets. Then we headed over to Jeff's parents' house for Jeff's mom's birthday. We had cake and ice-cream while we played around the horn.

Saturday was stake temple day, and the stake provided pizza from The Pizza Factory afterwards. (Free present #2) We got back to Cedar just in time to catch the 7:00 showing of "Mall Cop." Let's just say it was a good thing we didn't pay for those tickets. (#3) As Jeff put it, "we knew it was going to be a really cheesy only see one time kind of movie." It is still fun to go see a movie in the theater though.

Saturday night Jeff abandoned me. The night before my birthday at around 9:00, he said he had to go "do some things." The upside: I finally had some time to play the Wii. He got back at around 9:30 and then said, "Sarah, tomorrow is your birthday, so I want to take you somewhere." I was quickly blindfolded and escorted down to the car. He mindlessly drove around Cedar City for about 10 minutes to make sure I didn't know where I was. Then he walked me up some stairs while convincing me I was at a park. I finally got to take off my blindfold to find he had brought me to Abbey Inn's Honeymoon Suite with a little birthday cake and sparkling cider alL ready for us in the room. (#4) Thanks to a few connections he has with some people over at Abbey Inn, we were living the high life. It could not have been better.

Sunday I got to sleep in (#5), we went to church (#6), even Abe remembered my birthday (#7), and I got to play Rook with Jeff's family (#8). It was the most perfect birthday ever. And you can check out my parents' newly created blog for super embarrassing pictures of me. And you can check out The Golden Family Blog for another birthday tribute. (#9 and #10)

Thanks everyone for a rockin' twenty first birthday!
