The day after my birthday was our two year wedding anniversary.
{we have two, wedding anniversaries, hehe, the other is June 5th}

I had no idea what our plans were. I had 3 huge works events the week of my birthday and our anniversary so I was in no condition to be planning anything.

Scott planned an entire day of fun and it was all a surprise to me.

The day started out with the sun shining brightly. It was gorgeous out.

We headed south on the Pacific Coast Highway {gorgeous view of the pacific ocean}.

At this point I knew we were headed to the Santa Monica area, yay!

On the way we stopped for breakfast at one of my favorite places! Paradise Cove.

You literally eat at a patio table that is sitting on the sand. Such a wonderful way to start the adventure. We had our coffee while we waited to be seated. I ordered a bloody mary with breakfast, it was super yummy, but at 10 dollars it should have been a bit stronger or a bit bigger.

I had the chiliquiles. {I'm not sure if anyone reading this knows what that is. it is one of the most amazing Mexican breakfast dishes ever! it is tortilla chips, usually drenched in a yummy red sauce, eggs, refried beans, salsa, sour cream, YEOW!}

{sooooooo goooooood!}

{of course I HAD to have Pinkberry. I had the new flavor
 Lychee and of course the pomegranate flavor}

{walked down to the pier to enjoy a bit of the beach}

{isn't he just the cutest??}

We shared a yummy pizza at a little Italian place in the promenade. we also had a glass of wine and a beer. A perfect anniversary lunch.

We walked around all the shops in the promenade. I found a bunch of amazing deals.

birthday fun

 i swear to buddha there needs to be about 28 hours in a day, or 8 days a week. I'd be ok with either one as long we still only work 5 days and 8 hours a day.

friday was my birthday...the big 2-8...

i have to admit it was a little rough for me. not so much the turning 28 but the being away from my family and friends. while this is my second birthday in ventura for some reason this year it was rough.

every little thing made me cry, miss my family and friends.

the hubs did a great job of making it a wonderful day...

first he got up made me coffee and then insisted i sit out in the living room to read and drink my coffee while he prepared breakfast.

i was assuming he was doing pancakes and eggs. WRONG.

you see the night before he spent 1.5 hours shopping to get all the breakfast items. what i did not know was that he bought a waffle maker.

he made blueberry waffles and had strawberries, more blueberries, bananas, syrup and whipped cream all available for my waffle!

{how amazeballs does that look??}

i then got ready to go and and get a wonderful massage. after my body was relaxed i ran a few quick errands.

next on the birthday agenda was to go and lay out by the pool. {our base has a brand new community center which includes a pool.} it was 75 degrees out and for once not windy so perfect weather for the pool!

after relaxing pool side and more reading we had a late lunch of Pho {pronounced fuh, like is Vietnamese soup, i looooooooooooooooove it!}

after lunch it was time to get ready for book club.

the hubs was supposed to be gone until late friday night for his monthly work trip to Norfolk but because of the damn budget issues that almost had the government shut down on the 8th the trip was cancelled. because he was supposed to be gone i was hosting this months book club.

book club was super fun and laid back. we all did not like the book...haha, that has been the consensus lately...i don't think i am going to be reading the book for may, too much going on between now and the next book club.

and finally what did this gal get for her birthday?? a girls weekend to chicago!! YEOW! beyond excited.

my bff kar has to go to chicago for business for my other bff kate {kar's sister} and i decided we would tag along for a few days. I can't wait for a few days of girl time in the windy city!

stay tuned for our anniversary adventure...
