Birthday update #1

So Nathan took me to a very nice Italian restaurant last night. Now its not just any Italian restaurant, but one that my Turkish boss recommends as being true Italian food. And was it ever! The name of the place is Assaggio Ristorante in Seattle on 4th Ave. For the first time since we have been married, I think I got a more expensive dinner than nathan! We shared 2 appetizers and I got Grilled beef tenderloin, gorgonzola, red wine sauce and nathan got Sautéed veal, prosciutto, sage, white wine & butter sauce. So good! Glad we branched out and tried new things!!

We forgot our camera, so all these pics are from the Internet, I'm lame, I know!

But before we got down to Seattle, Nathan gave me my birthday present. Oh was I surprise!! He got me a Garmin!

For those of you who don't know, I'm not always the best with directions and knowing where I am in unfamiliar places. I do great off directions, but usually have to print them out. Well, now all I have to do it type in the address, and Cloe (that's what we named her) tells us where we are going! You can also look up places, like gas stations, restaurants, and banks, and it will show you the ones closest to where you are at! Thanks Honey, I love it so much!!! I'm so spoiled by my husband!!

After Assaggio, we used the Garmin to direct us to the Melting Pot for some dessert (even though we knew how to get there). We got some drinks, and a chocolate peanut butter fondue to share!!

I also received so many texts, email and messages on myspace and facebook from all my friends and family. I feel so blessed to know how many people love me and to know that I am surrounded (near and far) by the most amazing network of people! Thanks for making my birthday so special!

More birthday festivities to come soon...

Oh how true...

I stole this from my friend Bonnie's blog. And I wish it was just a joke....

Hopefully this won't hold true all summer long.

So this was a pretty busy weekend for us. It started with Leilani's wedding on friday. Everything went pretty smooth, so all the planning paid off! I think I should start a side business of a wedding planner. I couldn't be happier for the 2 of them! They looked so happy and she was beautiful!!

Saturday was spent with my grandparents who were visiting from Wisconsin. Oh how I have missed them! We started the day off at Patty's eggnest in Mill Creak and then later drove down to the museum of flight. Its pretty cool! That was my first time ever going there. Nathan and I decided that we are going to go back sometime and fly in one of the airplanes they have there! I let you know when that happens!

Sunday was of course father's day. We made eggs benedict at my parents house in the morning then went off to church. Lunch was at my parents, and we had really good salmon! We have become the masters of sharing holidays! After lunch and some Wii playing, we ventured up to Nathan's parents were we had dinner. We also have some Wii playing time and had this really good cheese cake with fresh strawberry puree and strawberry slices! So good!

We are both so thankful for our fathers this time of year. The blessings of having our fathers so close are wonderful! I am thankful for having been raised in a family with a righteous priesthood holder. I can't wait for the day to have our children call the man I love 'Dad"
