I was actually a little excited to turn 35. It just felt to me that it would be an awesome year. And so far it has been.
My birthday gift from Jeremy was tickets to see Fleetwood Mac down in Kansas City the weekend before my birthday. We hadn’t spent a night away from the kids in over a year and a half, so we were super stoked to get some time together just the two of us. We left Saturday morning after Hudson’s first swimming lesson. We stopped for coffee and got on the road.
The first thing we did when we got into town was hit up IKEA. I couldn’t wait to spend the money that we saved from Christmas just for this trip. I needed new bedding, wanted some throw pillows and picture frames and then ended up picking up some other fun stuff along the way. Jeremy also bought me the cubby shelves that I’ve been wanting forever as my birthday gift from the kids.
After our shopping trip we rushed to the hotel, got ready and went down to the Light and Power District where the concert was to eat some dinner. We couldn’t get into the restaurant we hoped to because it was crazy busy, so we ended up eating pizza at the Pizza Bar. It was awesome and so much fun. We had a beer out in the plaza and then headed into the concert.
Seeing Fleetwood Mac was everything I thought it would be and more. I grew up listening to them and it seemed crazy actually seeing them in person. Our seats weren’t great, but it didn’t matter one bit. It was amazing.
We woke up Sunday morning, stopped for coffee and breakfast and got on the road for home. It wasn’t a long trip, but it was enough to fill us up for a while.
I spent me actual birthday just hanging out with Harper and then we went out to dinner at one of our favorite restaurants. It was perfect.
35 is looking really good so far.
