7. Went to Disneyland twice.
8. Got pregnant.

    hope you have a great one dear lizzy girl! Happy Happy Birthday!

  2. Happy Birthday Liz!! Enjoy your day.

  3. Have a great day all to yourself... that's my dream birthday as well!

  4. Happy birthday!! 27 is such a great age. Everything changed for me when I turned 27 in a million good ways!

  5. Happy Birthday!!

    If I lived near you, or you near me, I would totally sign my kids up with you for music class!

    Have a great day and a blessed year!

  6. Happy Birthday!!! Hope you have a fabulous day!

  7. happy birthday Lizzy! i love your list!

  8. This will sound odd, but I mentioned to my mom that I would love to take a music class with you. I'm 22, a bit out of the range for your course. Oh, and I live in Utah. Details, details. :-D

    Happy birthday from a long time lurker!

  9. Happy Birthday!

    I remember reading about those music classes you were going to teach and thinking they sounded super fun!

    We live in LA and we'll be coming to SD with our 9 month old in September. Since you're from the area and seem to be doing a great job exploring the city with a baby (well, toddler now!), I was wondering if you had any tips on places to visit or good areas to stay with a baby.

    We've gone to SD a few times pre-baby and always stayed in the Gaslamp district but that doesn't seem practical now. Thanks for any tips & if you don't have time to get back to me, no worries! :)
