Of course Brooke’s birthday started off with sprinkles! On our way to the donut shop she wanted to hear stories about when she was born and when she was a baby while Frozen played in the background;) Brooke is also the only person that allows me to sing Happy Birthday over and over again (Andrew didn’t love it when I attempted this on his birthday) on her birthday so we both enjoyed that part of the morning too.
Thank you for all of your sweet comments to wish her a happy birthday yesterday… I read your comments to her!
We started off her birthday morning with this set-up. I saw it on Pinterest or something and Brooke loved that all of the balloons fell into her room as soon as she opened the door.
While she was sleeping I went out early for 7 miles. It was COLD when I first went outside. I had goosebumps. It felt amazing. I’ve never looked forward to fall like I do this year:)
Once she woke up we went to Krispy Kreme. Brooke was amazed by the process of the donut making magic. Krispy Kreme has pink frosting and sprinkles so that is why we went there:)
Knox came over for a few hours which was SO nice that they were able to spend some time together on her birthday!
They requested a jump house place that I’ve never been to but it was pretty amazing (and crazy cheap!!).
They didn’t stop moving for 2 hours straight.
It was exhausting just watching them from the couch;)
Next stop was lunch. Brooke requested Pretzel Bites and smoothies.
From there we went to her favorite pool. We were the first ones there! While Andrew was swimming with Brooke I fell asleep on the grass (sometimes I feel so tired with this pregnancy I literally cannot keep my eyes open) for 30 minutes. The thing that woke me up was a bee walking on my arm… always a fun way to wake up.
We went home for a bit and then hit up the Emoji Movie. Brooke loved it… she loves to send my mom emoji’s on my phone:)
She requested The Pizza Factory for dinner.
A bowtie caesar chicken salad and a bread twist for me!
Of course Brooke’s favorite present from the day had to do with art:)
And that is how we spent her 5th birthday. Now to gear up for Knox’s birthday next month;) I blame my mom for my birthday obsession. She always made us (makes us) feel like a million bucks on our birthdays and spent the day doing what we wanted to do. These habits were definitely passed down to me.
And last but not least, a VLOG from Andrew an me (Brooke joins us at the end). Andrew thought of a game where we come up with questions to ask the other person on the VLOG (without telling the other person the questions until we are filming and we only filmed it once)! I share something new I’ve learned about Andrew and we debate important topics;) PS we filmed it past my bedtime so don’t mind the fact I’m not as nice;)
Anyone allergic to bees? Ever been stung by a bee?
-Only once and it was in Mexico on my head… I felt something painful on the back of my head and reached into my hair and pulled out a HUGE bee (maybe even a bumble bee… it was so big).
To go along with our VLOG questions… do you believe in Aliens? Andrew is forcing me to ask you this because he wants to prove his point.
Also, to go along with our VLOG… what movie do you think you have watched more than any other movie ever?
-A Walk to Remember & The Notebook!
Any questions you want us to answer in our next VLOG!?!
