That Time of Year Again

It's been a pretty wonderful birthday so far, and we've just begun the day!

Hubby's alarm went off even earlier than six this morning. I should have known he was up to something fun! I tried to go get a glass of water, and he made me get back in bed and went to get my water for me. After he left for work around 6:20 AM, I wandered around the house to find this surprise awaiting me.

There was a note to turn up the volume on his computer. As soon as I did, I recognized what it was! Hubby got me the Last Episodes soundtrack from my favorite show, LOST. In case you didn't know, we watched the entire series on Netflix this past January, and I cried and cried and cried when it ended. But what I loved most about the entire show was the beautiful music. Michael Giacchino, who also did the soundtrack to the new Star Trek movie (and many others!), was the composer for the entire series. His work was so good, especially in the last six episodes, that they made a special two-disc set just to fit in all the incredible music. Ever since the show ended for us, as I sat in a pool of tears, I knew that soundtrack was going to be mine eventually. We'll see how long I can last as I listen to the songs before breaking down again.

It's playing behind me right now and is gorgeous! I can hardly wait to load it onto my iPod to listen to it all day! I can play it on the speakers around the house, or listen to it in the car, or have my earbuds in to enjoy it. I'm so excited. Kudos to Hubby on this one. He knows I love surprises and treasure hunts. And he knows how much I've been wanting this soundtrack. He never fails to deliver such fun.

In addition, it appears my house received a birthday heart attack during the night. Perhaps it is foretelling that I'm not even worrying about eating healthy today! There were paper hearts all over my yard and house when I woke up this morning. At first, I thought it was an additional present from Hubby, but he doesn't call me Sister Weir. And when I saw the "Welcome to Young Womens" heart, I knew who it was from.

That's right. I just got called to be in the Young Womens. I am so excited to be the new Camp Director! It's going to be a blast. Especially if they adorn my house with hearts after just a few days of being in their group! We are certainly off to a good start.

I also woke up to an Amazon gift card from my sister, Charloe. I love spending money on that website, so thank you very much!

Whoa! A gift card just arrived in my inbox for The Cheesecake Factory! Thanks, Mom and Merrill! You know where I love eating the most! (See? This day is just getting better and better!)

Since I'm in town and not away for work, I'm headed to lunch this afternoon with my sister, T'liese. Maybe I'll score something pretty to wear tonight while wandering around Chandler Mall. My favorite clothing store, Ann Taylor LOFT, never lets me down! When Hubby gets home from work, he is taking me to a temple session (provided I can leave my phone for that few hours without being called for work). Then he made dinner reservations somewhere fun. I don't know where, but he says I will like it. And any place that takes reservations...I'm all over it!

My brother is just one year and nine days younger than me, so we're celebrating both days this Saturday evening. It will be fun to get together for dinner and bowling! They're even getting babysitters for the kiddos, so I'm losing all excuses to have the gutter guards up when it's my turn! I love when birthday celebrations last all week!

So far, so good. It's only seven o'clock and I'm already having a great day. And not just because my next stop is Krispy Kreme to get my free dozen donuts for my birthday! Don't worry...I'm taking them all to Hubby's work so he can distribute them properly. Me eating a dozen donuts might not have a very positive outcome for the rest of the day. Nobody likes going into a sugar coma (I grew out of that just a few months ago)!


  1. Happy birthday Micah!

  2. Way to score! Happy Birthday ~ Love you tons.
