Can You Take Me Higher?!



A bunch of our dearest friends and loved ones had been asking us what we did on my birthday. Hmmm. It seems that everyone's expecting sweeps to pull off a big surprise, haha. I promised I'd make some kwentos here but since I'm super busy at work, I'm pressed with time to write about the details. Until I finish the video, I'd let the pictures do the storytelling for us, haha :o)

We had brunch at The Bamboo Club in Mill Avenue:



After brunch, we drove around the Arizona State University area:




Then we had our gelato dessert at Angel Sweet in Chandler - we had to try our favorite gelato. Sweeps ordered a huge cup of watermelon and I ordered a small cup of coffee flavored gelato. We tried other flavors before but it's the first tiime we saw watermelon which is sweeps' favorite :o) Pistachio and dark chocolate are also some of the flavors that are definitely to die for :o)







Dinner at Claim Jumper in Tempe- the only reason we went there was because of the free mudpie they give to birthday celebrants, haha. Food was great and the ambiance was very southwestern-y. I don't eat anythiing chocolate chip mint stuff so when they brought out the mudpie in that flavor, i was sad :o( but sweeps finished the dessert after I blew the candle and made my birthday wish, haha!




This is my most favorite part of my birthday weekend escapade - Video to follow :o)








The whole thing reminded me of Creed's song "Higher" hence the background song for my website.

Thanks sweeps for taking me Higher... on my birthday and every single day you invest your time with me :o*

"Higher"

When dreaming I'm guided to another world
Time and time again
At sunrise I fight to stay asleep
'Cause I don't want to leave the comfort of this place
'Cause there's a hunger, a longing to escape
From the life I live when I'm awake
So let's go there
Let's make our escape
Come on, let's go there
Let's ask can we stay?

Can you take me Higher?
To a place where blind men see
Can you take me Higher?
To a place with golden streets

Although I would like our world to change
It helps me to appreciate
Those nights and those dreams
But, my friend, I'd sacrifice all those nights
If I could make the Earth and my dreams the same
The only difference is
To let love replace all our hate
So let's go there
Let's make our escape
Come on, let's go there
Let's ask can we stay?

Can you take me Higher?
To a place where blind men see
Can you take me Higher?
To a place with golden streets

So lets go there, lets go there,
Come on, lets go there
Lets ask can we stay?

Up high I feel like I'm alive for the very first time
Set up high I'm strong enough to take these dreams
And make them mine
Set up high I'm strong enough to take these dreams
And make them mine

Can you take me Higher?
To a place where blind men see
Can you take me Higher?
To a place with golden streets

Can you take me Higher?
To a place where blind men see
Can you take me Higher?
To a place with golden streets
