Happy Birthday to Me!

My day started out with a gentle kiss on the head followed by "Happy Birthday, I love you." It was 5:40 in the morning, but I can't imagine a sweeter way to wake up.
When I stumbled out to the kitchen to get my coffee, on the table I saw a paper plate note that read, "Happy Birthday, my love. I love you so much. Thank you for marrying me. Love, Kory."
You can't start a day much better than that, even though the weather wasn't cooperating.

I had a call from my mom and a call from my Noggin who gave me an invitation to come to his house to eat the brownies they were making me for my birthday. I hope they were good.
At school, my awesome co-workers gave me this:

And tonight, Kory let me open the HUGE box that's been sitting on the living room floor in front of the fireplace. In it was a plum colored cable knit beret and these....

And on the bottom of the box were these....
And THEN, Kory took me here...


I can't even begin to tell you how much I ate, but for someone who lives a relatively vegetarian life with the occasional turkey burger thrown in for good luck, I ate more meat than a cheetah in the zoo at feeding time. UN...BE...LIEVE...ABLE... I never knew a cow tasted so good.
And to top it all off, we ate this...


wow.
It was a good birthday.
I love being 37.

And these were only on the plane...















Guess it doesn't matter if man calls it Sin City;
I think God had a bigger part in making this place...
We even got a rainbow from Him!
Kory and I are going to Red Rock Canyon tomorrow. Can't WAIT to get those photos!

Honeymooniversary...Thanks, Uncle Ray.

On Tuesday, Kory and I will be leaving rainy, cold Kansas City and going here...
the Hilton Grand Vacation Club on the Las Vegas Strip. Please know that I will be spending most of my time here...see that chair off to the far left? It's mine...get out of it. NOW.
Since Kory is well, Kory, I know we'll be here a few times, too...the girl with the booty kinda looks like me, but not really. I'm a hot mess when I work out, and I NEVER keep my hair down. BAD experience on a weight machine...
And Kory is SOOOO much hotter and buffer than that guy...

And then afterwards, I most assuredly will be here. Hopefully with a fruity concoction that has a pineapple or two on the top and one fantastic book. Or not. But at least a bottle of suntan lotion.



I'll post my own pictures soon. Gotta find my bathing suit right now!

In 10 days, I will celebrate my first wedding anniversary.
Other than Aunt Jenny, I have loved no other name more than "Mrs. Kraft."
I really love my husband, and I thank the Lord for giving him to me.
