My birthday was on Sunday, April 17, and I celebrated with having breakfast at The Mission with a couple of friends, Starbucks with my brothers and dad, bike riding with Kris, and dinner at 25 Forty Bistro & Bakehouse in Old Town. Now I wish I had documented everything! I had incredible food the entire day and my super amazing boyfriend even got me my favorite tiramisu cake from Etna's.
What made me feel incredibly special was my birthday present from Kris. He took all the things I've made of us as "Where the Wild Things Are" (plush, drawings, and paper versions of us) and turned us into toys! He's a designer/vinyl toy collector and somehow, he was able to commission these one-of-a-kind customs. It's all done from scratch with no Dunny, Munny, or Mad*L figure as the starting base.
My heart melted when I saw them and when he told me how he's been planning this for months, it brought me to tears. I feel so lucky to have him in my life. He treats me so special and I only hope he feels the same.
If you're curious, we've been together for almost two years now. I think we're four months away? I've always been pretty terrible at keeping track of these things and he can definitely vouch for this! And on the subject of toys, Kris also blogs for Vinylpulse.com. Be sure to check that out!
