My birthday is December 24th and Zack decided that starting this year the two of us are going to start celebrating my half birthday so that is exactly what we did on July 1st! The entire day was filled with surprises for me due to the fact that I had no clue as to where we were going. We started the Friday morning off by eating breakfast at Chick-fil-A.. Yummy! After enjoying our chicken minis and hash browns we were off. The next place on our list was the Memphis Zoo! We had such an amazing time looking at all of the animals and just spending time together. Even though it was July the weather was not that hot at all. I even let Zack talk me into going into the reptile house. If you know me well you know I am SEVERELY afraid of snakes so this was a huge moment for me!! Obviously I made it out alive so I guess you could so I concerned a little piece of my fear that day thanks to Zachary. Our favorite part of the zoo had to be the new area for the bears. Two of the 3 grizzlies were playing and running around like little kids while the other one napped in the shade. It was so fun! After leaving the zoo we stopped to eat lunch at one of our favorite spots, Huey's. Delicious like always! After lunch Zack surprised me and took me to Anthropologie and told me I could pick out a dress to wear that night. Luckily I work there and get a great discount but this trip we actually found 2 dresses on sale and they ended up being super super cheap! Happy birthday to me right?! After shopping we both went home and got dressed for the evening. I wore one of my new dresses and Zachary looked so handsome in his dark Levi jeans and a plaid navy shirt. We ate dinner at Ciao Bella. I had only been here one time before with Elinor but it was Zack's first time. We both were very impressed. After a birthday dessert we headed to midtown to see Footloose at Playhouse on the square!! The show was AMAZING! Everyone did such a great job. It was opening night and everything appeared to go perfectly. Altogether we had a perfect day. Zachary you bring so much love and happiness into my life. Thank you for being such a wonderful man. I love you!
