Happy Birthday Walker & Christmas 2012 Recap Part 2
I have to start off this post with the biggest, happiest birthday wishes to the love of my life… today is Walker’s 30th birthday!! We are starting the celebrations tonight with a yummy sushi dinner and then partying it up with some friends tomorrow night. As a little birthday gift, I give Walker (and the rest of you) this adorable nugget:“Happy Birthday Dad! You are my favorite parent because you didn’t make me wear this dumb hat.” -Bo
I love that little pup! Such a good sport….
Now, as promised, I am excited to share a few of the awesome home-related Christmas gifts we received this year! Let’s begin with the incredible, amazing, wonderful birthday boy himself (I love bragging about him… and since it’s his birthday I have an excuse to go all out). Walker is so thoughtful that for Christmas he had an artist on Etsy hand-paint a beautiful sign with the name of the camp that I attended every summer! Okay, “attended” does not do it justice… I lived, breathed, and worshiped this camp! My best friend and I would go for 1-2 weeks every summer (for 8 consecutive summers I think!) and we had the most amazing time. As we pulled out of the camp’s driveway to go home, we would start the countdown for the next summer. It sounds strange but that camp is a huge part of the person I have become and Walker is well aware of the impact it had on me (probably because I talk about it all the time like a creeper). So I thought it was so amazing of him to have this sign made for me, both because it is an awesome piece of wall art and also because of the huge amount of sentimental value it has.
How amazing is that!? I love the texture… I keep petting the sign haha! We hung it in the kitchen between the table and the door. If you remember, we used to have a picture of a sunrise on Walker’s family farm hanging there.But not to worry, that photo simply got relocated to the gallery wall in the living room along with a gorgeous picture and frame that my best friend gave me. My amazing aunt also sent us a super cute typography wood sign that fit perfectly with our collection of love-y dove-y photo-booth pictures. We love that the gallery wall is starting to fill in a little more! The other thing we got this weekend as an anniversary gift from Walker’s parents was this awesome embroidered Nebraska kitchen towel! Isn’t it the cutest thing ever?!
It looks perfect in our kitchen but it is way too cute to use for drying dishes! Guess that means I don’t have to do dishes at all. Best. Gift. Ever. ;)
We got a lot of other really incredible gifts from generous family members and friends, including a lot of things for school! I can’t believe it but I start next week!! WOOOOO!
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend… drink an extra one for Walker tonight! ;)
