Belated Birthday Bash...

Ever since I reached the age of 24 I have not enjoyed the whole birthday fun. Don't get me wrong I love the presents, but the reason behind it...not so much. But the older I am getting (and I know I'm not old) I have realized it's all good. I am enjoying where I'm at in life. It seems as though the older I am getting the more fun life is getting. So yes it is true, I am one year older and wiser too. Well I don't know about wiser! However I have reached the ripe age of ....

This year Romney did good. We woke up first thing (first thing to us is 10am) and went to breakfast! Topping it off with all you can shop!!! That is right I got to SHOP all day.


Romney did not complain once. He was so great helping me decide which size fit better and color looked better etc...


While I shopped he played with my new camera that he got for me, So I didn't feel too sorry for him. After shopping we went to dinner and to a resort for the night. When we got there we went straight to the lazy river and floated in the water. It was such a fun day! Thank you Romney!!



A few days later we went to see COLDPLAY in L.A. It was awesome!! Thanks to my brother who surprised me with the tickets!




Here we are waiting to get into the parking lot....



The show was amazing!! I cant believe how awesome they sound and how talented they are. Romneys two thumbs up approval of coolness....thanks again Byron!!!

Happy Belated Birthday Erin! A day to remember, thats for sure! I totally dig the new camera, and am jealous that you saw coldplay. They canceled their show here in Phx. Sad face.

Cool B-day! Shop all day? Awesome! Sounds like you guys had a great time and so glad Coldplay was as good as you hoped they were. It's the least we could do for you watching our kids and letting us stay at your house and turning 27 and all the good stuff you do. You're just cool, Ernie! We love you and Happy 27th.

I know how you feel about turning older, 25 was the worse! Happy b-day anyways! You look like you're still 14 since the last time I saw you!
I'm jealous you went to Coldplay, they are one of our favorites!

Happy Birthday! Glad you had fun. It makes birthdays more tolerable!

Gabe & Christy Beal said...

Happy Birthday Erin! I think I need to send Gabe to birthday boot camp with Romney so he can get all trained up for next year! Looks like you had lots of fun. And dont worry, in my mind we are all eternally 21...

As a side note...anytime I watch anything with Isla Fischer or Keri Russell in it - I find myself wondering who they remind me of...and its YOU! I think they are both GORGEOUS, and somehow have an 'erin' quality to them!
