Life As a Scrapbooking Newlywed

Birthday Weekend!

Not many couples can say they get to celebrate both of their birthdays in one weekend, but Matt and I are only two days apart, except he’s also a year old. I’ve noticed I’ve reached the age to where I can’t remember how old I am. I’m not sure if it’s just because age doesn’t really matter to me or that Matt’s birthday is so close, I get our ages confused. I told someone at work the other day I was turning 27 Sunday, not 26.

Last night (Matt’s birthday) we had some friends over for a game night and it was a blast! We played Quelf and Pictionary Man, both of which I hadn’t played in far too long. My team won Pictionary Man, which was great to get out again! My brother brought over some chips and salsa that Mom made from some fresh tomatoes in the garden. It was delicious! Especially for the first time ever of her making it. I’m glad there’s plenty left to enjoy. 🙂

Today we went to Coney Island for the first time together and for a long time for both of us. Matt got free tickets for signing us both up for the Breast Cancer 5K  in October. I’m pretty sure the last time I was there, it was for Mom’s office picnic which was a very long time ago. I can’t even remember how long. It was a great day for it and some of those rides are just awesome. Even the paddleboats were free!

Tomorrow we’re going out to Applebees or Mellow Mushroom for both of our birthdays with each of our families. The Bees is our first choice because there’s a fundraiser for autism awareness there but if we can’t get in in a reasonable time, we’re going to go to Mellow Mushroom instead. Then I have to go to a meeting a church where I plan on demanding cake because it’s my birthday. 😉
