Today is a very special day, because I was born 26 years ago. Additionally, Chris asked me to be his girlfriend five years ago (as a friend once pointed out, this combination makes remembering dates and giving gifts much easier for Chris). Accordingly, we woke up late, and I pulled out the leftover desserts to eat for breakfast.
Izzy and his Rachel then made us a more traditional breakfast of sweet potato home fries, eggs, ground turkey, and fresh guacamole.
Chris finally cut his hair and trimmed his neck; even with his beard still in tact, the transformation is very apparent, to say the least.
We were excited to find that a birthday card from my granny, a piece for the GoPro helmet mount from Chris’ mom, Linda, and some awesome new Clean Bottles had all arrived in Izzy’s mail for us.
Izzy dropped Chris and I off at my family’s house, where Schevaun served a delectable dinner followed by oatmeal chocolate chip birthday cake, complete with candles for me to blow out! They even gave me a nice card and a gift. Chris pointed out that now that I was 26, I was on the last letter of the alphabet.
Rocky and Chris then had a fun few rounds of badminton before we called it a night.
Thanks to everyone for the birthday well wishes and for making it a special day!
