Two dozen

I turned 24 today. Which is crazy! I am almost as old as Uber was when we got married. We celebrated last night because Sunday is all about church and being lazy. I have this issue with going out to eat on birthdays... I REALLY like to make an awesome meal at home. Which Uber seems to be totally cool with. He choose the menu this year and made it all by himself.

The appetizer was brie and crackers.

For the main course he made Caramelized Veal Chops with Balsamic Syrup and asparagus. This was AMAZING! It's a Williams Sonoma Recipe if you haven't checked out their online cookbook I would definitely suggest it!

This fun little toy arrived from my Gram. Its for tea which worked out perfectly because my mum had just mailed me some. You dump your leaves and water into it and let it steep and then when you are ready you set it on top of your cup and it drains in and viola! Scrumptious tea. I love it thank you!
Ubers mom and dad mailed me a fun little treat

A beautiful bird necklace. It's a lisa leonard piece and I am totally in love with it. I've worn it since I opened it but I cant seem to get a good picture of it on! I could never figure out why I was so drawn to it but Sherrill pointed out that it is a lot like my pillow designs.... duh!

Uber is an amazing gift giver... he didn't let me down this year.

I have always wanted to learn how to play the guitar and I am SOO excited about this! I still have to schedule my lessons and I am really nervous (because what if I am terrible)! It came with a DVD to help you get started but it did nothing but frustrate me which is slightly disappointing because... well I wanted to start playing with it now! Uber was able to help me get it tuned though so that much has happened.

He is interested in learning as well so if nothing else one of us should put this to use.

Anyway I had a lovely day. Today was fun too we went out to eat with friends and I managed to make it through with NO SINGING!!! I am SSSOOOO happy about this!

Wow! 24 years old! I need time to digest this... I can still see you as a 9 year old. Okay, obviously this is going to take me some time. You know, maybe if you looked older... 'cuz you still look like that cute little 9 year old, except that you're taller... Sheesh.. I'm going to get some more packing done.
Happy birthday to youuuuu. Happy birthday to youuuuu. Happy birthday dear jessicaaaa! Happy birthday to youuuuuu!!!!!

I'm glad you had a great b-day. It was fun to see your fun gifts and share in your special dinner,which looked amazing. It is strange to think of you as 24years old. I can close my eyes and relive the feeling of holding you when you were barely a hour old. I didn't want to let you go. luv ya sassy frass!
