So I know it's been over a month since my birthday, but we've been really busy(see 2 posts below), so I'm just posting about it now. James was out of town on business on my actual birthday, so he took me out to dinner at the Melting Pot (my all time favorite and most expensive restaurant). We had been planning the trip all year so when it came time and we were also buying a house we were nervous, but James decided to do it anyways. We were totally blessed though, my parents sent me a $40 gift card to the Melting Pot for my birthday and then my student employees at my office did something I never expected: they all pitched in and got me a $50 gift card to the Melting Pot. We only had to pay 12 for the meal and that included the tip! It's so much food we thought we were gonna burst afterward. You have a huge cheese fondue, big salads, then the main course with TONS of meats, and then a chocolate fondue with everything you can think of to dip in it. We really feel like God was looking out for us. I can never thank all my awesome employees enough. Here are some pics from our trip.
