I turned 25 on Saturday.  For my birthday, Adam decided to support me in my recent obsession to lose the extra baby weight, so he bought me exercise clothes, a yoga ball, jump rope, fitness wheel, and an exercise DVD.  No, I didn't take the gift the wrong way--it will be nice to be able to mix up my workouts instead of just running every day.  Adam also surprised me with a manicure and pedicure at the best nail boutique ever.  Then I went shopping (ALONE!) and chose out TWO new pairs of shoes!  As much as I love my little boys, it was heaven to have a couple of hours to myself!  
After I was done, our great friends, Jeff and Kim, took the kids while we went to dinner at the Cheesecake Factory.  I ate an entire piece of cheesecake; it was sinful and wonderful!  I guess I will just have to spend a little extra time with the new exercise stuff! :)  It was a great birthday!
Besides the birthday festivities, Adam had both Friday and Monday off of work for the holiday weekend.  It actually extended into a FIVE day weekend, because he is not feeling so well today, so he stayed home from work.  Of course it is not fun to be sick, but sick or not, I still like having him home!

I don't usually get desserts when we go out, but when it's cheesecake factory I just can't resist! Good for you for having a slice! I'm glad you got some alone shopping time for your special day!

Glad your birthday went well and you found some cute shoes. I'm always drawn to the running shoes although I only need one pair and they don't get used too often.

What a fun birthday! I don't know if you've heard of "stroller strides". I actually do not do that, but a girl from my old ward, same stake does a similar thing at a local park 3 days a week in the morning. It really helped me with the baby weight thing. I absolutely love it...plus Cody gets to socialize with other kids. If you want anymore details let me know. I think it is wonderful when moms take control of their health and fitness. Good luck in your quest!

Happy Birthday Raisin! I'm glad you had a good day! Good job on the race too! I'm impressed you were able to run so soon after having a baby.

Ya we will be in Utah then. We should definitely get together. Tell me about the guy your sis is marrying. Where did they meet?
