Just My Luck...

Yesterday, as I was sitting at work, I received this notification on my phone:

How could this have happened?!  I never with anything!  I called Logan and told him and we couldn't wait!  This was going to be a big game, after all.  Nationally televised on TNT and they were playing the defending champions.  We quickly canceled our original plans and were so excited to have a FREE date night!  I had a feeling that I was getting my hopes up prematurely and sure enough, about an hour later, I received this notification:

I was so sad!  Before breaking the news to Logan I decided to call the ESA box office to check if I had somehow won the tickets still.  To make a long story short, we didn't win the tickets.  Apparently everyone that has the Utah Jazz app was mistakenly notified that they had won tickets and because they obviously didn't have that many tickets to give away, we are being compensated with Bees tickets.  Definitely not a fair trade in my opinion!  I know a couple other people that experienced the same heartbreak as me so if any of you did as well, maybe we can all go the the Bees game together and curse the Utah Jazz app! ;)

Birthday Bash!

As referenced in my previous post below, Logan's birthday was on the 6th and I was determined to make it a memorable one since the last time we celebrated his birthday together was in 2009.  We both took the day off and loved having a whole day together with nothing to worry about!

Logan was feeling under the weather all week so he slept in on Friday and I took advantage of that and ran and got my hair done.  When I got home a few hours later he was playing video games so I'm sure he didn't mind that I was gone.  We relaxed most of the afternoon by watching Logan's favorite show right now (Planet Earth) before finally getting ready for our date!

He wasn't a big fan of the birthday crown but allowed me to take a few pictures =)
I was able to surprise Logan with Jazz tickets which he was very excited about!  We were planning on going to dinner at an Austrian restaurant downtown but on our way down we found out they're out of business.  We were super bummed!  Logan was all for going somewhere cheap and quick but I really wanted to go somewhere he hadn't been in a long time so we decided on Takashi.  If you're a fan of sushi then this place is a must!  It was actually Logan's first time and he had never sat a sushi bar so we did that and had a great time.  It always freaks me out watching them make the sushi because I can't believe I actually eat that stuff but it was delicious, as always! 

The Jazz game was so much fun and it was the first time Logan had been to a game that they won (and he's been to a lot of them!) so that made it even better!  

After the game we went home and relaxed and just enjoyed the rest of the night together.  I think Logan had a good time so that made me happy!  On Saturday night we celebrated his birthday with my family by going to dinner at Famous Dave's and then went back to my parent's house for cake and ice cream.  He was spoiled with some fun gifts, too!  He now has a gift card to Finish Line, a sound bar for our TV, a large wad of cash and some new video games.  I think he's set for a while!

Happy Birthday, Rico!  I'm a little sad I can no longer claim I'm older than you but I'm very pleased to welcome you to Club 22! :)

One Year Older and Wiser Too!

He's had a birthday, shout hooray! 

On this day, 22 years ago, my greatest friend in existence came into the world!  12 years later we became friends and our relationship has only strengthened since then.  I'm so grateful to have such an amazing husband and eternal companion and hope he knows how much I love him!  Can't wait to party tonight, Rico! :) 

(Details and pictures of our birthday bash to come in the near future!)
