I have to brag: I'm going to Hawaii for my 23rd birthday!
Jim just booked the tickets today for 9 days in Oahu at the Hilton Hawaiian Village in Waikiki. We are so excited! Although, secretly I think Jim is just feeling guilty over all the sad posts that have been cropping up on my blog lately...
This will be the fifth birthday Jim and I have spent together. Here's a quick recap of how I've celebrated:
19th - Jim took me out for a romantic dinner at Cedars complete with flowers, eloquent card, and watching the sunset on the river. He was still trying to win me over at this point.
20th - I can't remember how we celebrated this birthday. Jim proposed four days before this birthday, so I'm sure we were still celebrating both occasions!
21st - Jim and I (and my parents) toured the Columbia Basin stopping at various places to taste aged grape juice.
22nd - Jim forgot to plan anything special for my birthday but made it up to me by taking me out to lunch and surprising me with a delicious fruit torte from my favorite bakery.
23rd - Going to Hawaii! 9 uninterrupted days with my husband!
I honestly don't know how next year's birthday could get any better.
Small disclaimer - The only part of this trip that is Dave Ramsey-approved is the fact that we are paying for it in cash. If it was Dave Ramsey-approved, we would have paid off our debt and completed our Emergency Fund first before budgeting to save for this trip. Shh, don't tell Dave!
