Jake turns 26!

Jake just had a birthday! I have mentioned it in a few posts, but wanted to make a specific post just for his birthday. We started out the morning of his birthday REALLY early - around 2 AM to be precise. He woke me up and said he wasn't tired, I said I wasn't either so we decided to go sit on the couch and watch TV. Except I was hungry. So was he. So we decided to go to Beto's - because that's what normal people do at 2 AM.

And then we wanted Ice Cream, so we went to Smith's and got some Ben & Jerry's. And then we needed a movie to watch, so we got Hotel Transylvania. It was ok, not my favorite but pretty cute. After we finished our movie & breakfast, we went back to bed. When we woke up, we worked on the fence for a few hours until we got rained out. Jake was hungry, so I ordered us a pizza from Pizza Hut - he loves them. We took it easy the rest of the day - I cleaned the house up and Jake took a nap. That was the weekend of General Conference, but Jake wasn't feeling up to Priesthood so he stayed home and slept. That didn't mean I couldn't have girls night though - Brynne & Jeannene came over and we watched Les Miserables on Blu Ray. Oh. My. Word. I hadn't seen it yet. Like ever. No play. No listening to the soundtrack. And I was blown away - I LOVED IT! I ended up buying the soundtrack and have listened to it SO many times haha. I can't wait until we buy it - just need to go to Costco and get it, since they usually have the best prices on movies.

After we finished the movie, we all went to Cafe Rio together for some dinner and then went to Smart Cookie for some cookies. I LOVE their cookies - we hadn't been there in a WAY long time so it was fun to go again!

Love my family :)
Overall, it probably wasn't the best birthday. Building a fence is NOT how I would want to spend my birthday, but Jake was a really good sport about it. I ended up getting him some stuff for his Go Pro - a head mount & a chest mount. That's part of why I wanted him to drive the Lamborghini so bad - I wanted him to get to do something memorable for his birthday. So I am SO glad he got to do that!!

Sunday after we finished the posts, we took Dustin, Mom & Dad to dinner at Applebee's. Where it "accidentally" slipped it was Jake's birthday so they sang to him!

He was thrilled haha can you tell?!
I am so grateful this guy was born, and that I get to spend the rest of my life with him. And that in a few weeks, I'll know that I get to spend eternity with him. He is the best husband a girl could ask for. He is so hard working, loyal, fun, spontaneous and just downright sexy. I love him SO much!

Happy birthday Jake - can't wait for all the birthdays we'll celebrate in the future!!
