You know when you little and you can’t go to sleep because of the excitement that is your birthday the next day? And you try and try but to no avail because all you can think about is how great your birthday is going to be? Yeah, well that happened to me. I haven’t felt that excited about my birthday since I was probably……13. I forgot how much I love that feeling!! I felt like a kid all over agin. On August 3rd I couldn’t go to sleep because the butterflies were dancing in my stomach and I was giddy with excitement! It was two ‘clock by the time I was in bed, but just that, in bed, NOT asleep. I kept grinning and talking to Kyle. I would roll around the bed, wrapping myself in the blankets like a little 6 year old girl just giggling at the thought of what would happen that day and remaining week. I would roll so much that I almost rolled Kyle off the bed! Thankfully, my husband is patient and found laughter in my silly ways. Finally, by quarter to three I was sound asleep. I woke up at 9:30 only to find our bedroom TP’ed and ribbon hanging off the door, as to make a curtain. It’s a Bastian tradition founded by my mother-in-law. The toilet paper lead to the presents on the couch. I got ready and at 12 went and got a full body Swedish massage. For 60 min I was in Heaven. I had never got a professional massage so it was an AMAZING experience. I didn’t want it to end. If you’ve never gotten one, I highly suggest you get one. I was beyond relaxed. We then went to Red Robin for lunch and got a free ice cream sundae! YUM. When I went to work my boss wished me a happy birthday and gave me a red velvet cheesecake and $50 to the Cheesecake factory. I was shocked and filled with much gratitude! It made me sappy and I almost cried. Haha. Pathetic, I know :)
Friday, my birthday adventures continued with shopping with the birthday money my parents and kyles parents gave me. THANK YOU! On Saturday, we had the pleasure of experiencing Keith Urban in concert. The concert was so legit! He brought three ladies on stage with him and had a picture taken. Later, he randomly selected three people from the audience to come on stage and SING WITH HIM! How awesome of an experience would that be!!!!! Finally, towards the end of the concert he gave away one of his guitars. During the beginning of his performance, this brave girl ran up the platform on stage and started dancing on/with him while he played his guitar and sang. Needless to say, she was quickly escorted off stage by security. We assumed she was either drunk or just crazy. haha. His concert was so fun and he played great music. He was very much involved with his fans. He's a funny guy, too.
Despite the fact I spent my birthday away from family and friends, I felt so much love that suddenly the many miles didn’t seem so far away. I was so spoiled for my birthday and it felt weird, haha. To say the least, my birthday was incredible! Definitely one to remember. Thank you to all my friends and family who made it extra special!
This is our room when I woke up.
This is EXACTLY what I wanted. Kyle gave me this. My mother in law gave me blow-pops, tangled and money. My parents gave me money. And the best present of all was given to me by my niece and nephew: a homemade picture frame made of popsicle stick crafts, birthday cards and paper airplanes :)
This was after my 1 hour massage. I couldn't stop smiling :) It was another great gift given by my baby boy. I now no longer suffer from headaches and backaches! WOOT! The only light was given by candles. SOOO relaxing.
When I left the massage room I found this in the relaxing room. YUM! The spoon was adorable, haha.
At the Keith Urban concert. This was after the opening performer, Jake Owens.
MR. KEITH URBAN!!!!!!
He went to the middle of the floor and sang on a platform that lifted him up. On his way down the aisle he was mauled by fans who tried anything possible to get his sweat on them. They were hanging off the railings and stretching forth. They would run their hands through his hair, touch his face and his chest.
During one of his final songs, he played his guitar that changed colors! Notice how its red and then blue.
