matt's birthday

short and sweet. day 14-- a nonfiction book ? The Inside of a Dog by Alexandra Horowitz.

Ok, so we just got back from ATLANTA!! where i surprised matt by taking him to a John Mayer concert! :) His birthday isn't until Saturday but every year, so far, I've gotten him something he'd asked for, so this year I wanted to do something fun.

Wednesday morning he got up...went downstairs to make his coffee and found a card in the sugar cabinet that said something along the lines of ... "you do so much for much for us, that it's time for me to do something for you.. get done any important things at work because we're leaving at 2! " I had already told his boss I was kidnapping him so he didn't have to worry about work. We got in the car and he still didnt know where he was going. I said "we have to go get something from your mom's" and then when we pulled up she was standing in the driveway with all her bags. We were picking HER up! :) Matt was excited...then on the way there guessed correctly that we were going to a concert in Atlanta. He just didn't know who was going! :) So we got to Kelleigh's (his sister) new apartment in Buckhead and had some drinks and then we all ventured to the concert. It was SO MUCH FUN! John was amazing. We had a great time and then we went to a local bar til about 12:30. More fun than Matt and I have had in a while! And we were feeling the effects this morning too!!! woo!!! we cannot drink like we used to, that's for sure :)

So we're home. and having a relaxing night tonight. Tomorrow we're going to the JL Mann vs. Greenville high school football game. and then saturday, on matt's real birthday, we're going to watch all the good football games all day and have a little cookout that night. If you're in town, come over!! We're gonna have cookie cake :)

Ok, later tonight I'll post Day 15.



  1. It sounds like y'all had a blast! The mention of cookie cake makes me want to stop by the Chocolate Shoppe soon!
