Anyway, as for the gifts I got him...
Panda pot in the center of all the other wrapped gifts! We will probably put a bamboo plant in it.
A pull-up bar. We are trying to complete our home gym. I also got him some new workout clothes. Now all we need is a treadmill....
Some cheesy T-shirts from the Japanese store that I custom-sewed so that they would be a better fit.
Some snazzy shirts from H&M. The stripes are very... Brandon. Hehe... and I am loving the mint color these days.
Six new ties! Actually, I sewed them so that they would be skinny ties, since that is Brandon's favorite style.
Notice something special about this closeup of one of the ties? Panda and Lion!!! The perfect combo. I mean, there are other animals on there as well, but I had to buy this tie for that reason alone. Brandon says he will probably wear it on Saint Patrick's day. LOL! But he LOVED all the other ones and will probably wear them regularly.
Oils to burn from The Body Shop. Brandon and I collect only the very delicious-smelling ones.
Some snacks that Brandon loves! Sadly, I didn't get his favorite jerky this time around, but I am sure he will overlook that.
Of course, I also had to write him a sappy love note for his birthday, on the cutest stationery that I currently own. :-)
I know this picture is way random, but after I was done wrapping the presents, I captured this funny picture of Nabi, our cat. He is soooo random and I always find him lurking in the strangest places in our house. He was behind the door snuggled up to my panda slippers. LOL!
So anyway, in addition to opening gifts, Brandon's mom bought this delightful
fattening cake from Sam's club and we stuffed ourselves. As the night went on, we were craving pizza. So we ordered some Domino's pizza that kinda made us sick because we ate too much of it. I ended the night by giving Brandon a massage and he said it was the best birthday he ever had. I was so happy to hear that. :-) I am truly grateful to have Brandon in my life. He is everything to me, everything in the world! I didn't take any actual pictures of us together (of course, UGH!!!) but anyway, we both had a wonderful time. I was glad it turned out a million times better than last year. Today, I even got to enjoy some leftover seaweed soup that Brandon's mom made (Korean birthday tradition), and it was ever-so delicious. Also, we will be going out for a family dinner celebrating Brandon's birthday next week when all of our family members are off work. Alright... well... I have got a lovely memorial day weekend ahead of us. I also have minimal homework. THAT NEVER HAPPENSSSS!!!! >___< Hehe so anyway, maybe I will read a book or watch Harry Potter or something like that. Also, some of our awesome friends are going to Portland tomorrow, and Brandon and I are strongly considering going as well. SUPER FUN STUFF. OH!!! Before I say goodbye, I will have you know that I got 100% on my math midterm. For those of you who know me well, you know that this is unthinkable. But it happened. And yes, I am narcissistic and proud enough to bring it up. Hehe... Talk to you later. xoxox
