my 21st birthday

i woke up to the noise of my husband singing in the shower
and my best friends sneaking into my apartment with my favorite breakfast.
i guess that is the sound 21 years makes.

i started the day out right with banana pancakes, eggs, and a delicious fruit smoothie.
thanks becca and claire!

jeff got a check that was a LOT bigger than we thought it would be.
happy birthday to me. to both of us really.

my parents and in-laws spoiled me and gave me money to "splurge"
and splurge we did!
fancy dinner, mommy/baby shopping spree.
in which jeff participated in, and was a lovely sport.
that was a great present in and of itself-
spending time with my awesome husband. 
my best friend.
he asked me like 25 times that day if i was having a good birthday.
with him by my side, it was impossible to say no!
i love mommy onesie. irresistable//ruffle bum leggings. obsession. //sour patch kids. somebody stop me

{when jeff saw that pink onesie he said: my foot wouldn't even fit in that! haha}

he surprised me with a super nice new straightener
since i haven't had one since we got married. gross. sorry husband.
he gave me explicit instructions on how to use it.
and informed me that he did a lot of research on the best straighteners.
he also got me some stuff that will get rid of my monsters (what he calls my frizzy stray hairs)
he was very proud of himself.
it was very cute :)
it says to warn children that they could die of electric shock.
i whispered to my fetus to not die of electric shock.
hopefully she takes my advice to heart and remembers it for later on down the road.

a year ago today, jeff and i were dating but not yet official.
he would pick random days to play hard to get.
i was not a fan.
especially when he picked my birthday to be one of those days.
he didn't even text me or anything on my birthday last year.
he said he had formed a message, and in the end decided not to send it.
oh. thats really cute jeff.
i kept teasing him that this year he better make up for the lack of acknowledgment last year.

the day ended with me drifting to sleep while he was in the living room.
i got a text and read it:
"hey sweetheart. if i'd texted you a year ago today this is what i would've said :)
'hey kerri! i hope you've had an awesome birthday full of smiles.
i like your smile :) and i hope to get to see it more often!
take care- i'll call you tomorrow' - ;) '"

i thought that was awfully cute.
and I'm glad he got past his hard to get phase shortly after.
oh and a year later- I'm wayyyy pregnant with his child.
that is wild. and crazy. and a little absurd.
i know you are all thinking it.
its fine.

all i know is that it was, hands down, the best 20th year of life i could've ever imagined.
