My birthday is still not for a few more days, but my grandparents took me to dinner last night to celebrate. We ate at this wonderful Japanese restaurant. I probably gained five pounds from one meal, but it was completely worth every minute. We had a great time. I am so fortunate to have my grandparents in my life, and to be so close to them.
The night only got better when I opened my birthday gift. My grandparents are the coolest. Want to know what they got me? Well, I will tell you...a Navigon 2100 GPS system for my car. I am super excited and cannot wait to make the three hour trip back home after the weekend to try it out.
Not only will I put the gift to good use, but it is something that I would never have spent the money on for myself. And to me, those are always the best gifts. Something that you long for, but would never make the sacrifice in your budget to buy. It is great to have family that knows you so well.
What are some of the best birthday gifts you have ever received?
