Birthday Weekend Shenanigans!!

Here I am, blogging to you another year older...28--time flies when you're having fun, right? Funny how birthday celebrations have gone from wild craziness around town until the wee hours of night to fun dinners that end with a full night's sleep, though I know my body thanked me for not feeling too terrible.

Friday night, Jeff and I headed to Bed, Bath, and Beyond for another round of gift exchange and then went to the parents' house for dinner and stayed up late playing our favorite card games.
Saturday morning, I was up to the gym and then spent the afternoon playing organization...how do we continue to rack up so much stuff? Fast forward 3 hours, I sent the husband to Goodwill to drop off an entire Tahoe full of giveaways and was finally able to put up all of our extra wedding gifts we had floating around.
That evening, we went over to Meg and Aaron's for pre-dinner drinks and then headed to my favorite mexican locale--Rosepper. I was so happy some of my good friends were able to be there, though a lot of people were out of town...story of having a summer bday, right? ;)
We ate and drank and had a great time, complete with homemade strawberry cupcakes from my best friend...how sweet! Here are a few pics from the night:
Sunday, I was woken up early for one of my favorite past-times...breakfast in bed. My adorable Jeff made pancakes in the shape of hearts and topped them with strawberries and whipped cream--so sweet!
We went to church, and joined up with my family downtown at Puckett's for brunch...oh what fun! Sad to say I didn't take any pictures, though I giot some really sweet gifts...Ray Bans, a Michael Kors watch,  cookbooks, pajamas, the cake stand I was coveting, money {which always seems to fit!}, a 2-year subscription to Bon Appetit, gorgeous jewelry, and a perfect cupcake tree stand. I guess my friends and family have caught on to my love affair of cooking, right?
That afternoon, Jeff and I headed to the movies to see my pick of the day, Bridesmaids, which was HILARIOUS!! And to round out a perfect--and calorie gorging--weekend, he let me pick what I wanted for dinner...my favorite guilty pleasure, Papa Johns Pizza.

Thanks to everyone who made my birthday so special...it means so much to hear from friends and family and I truly felt very loved! Not to mention, all my blogging friends--you were too sweet with your kind well wishes--my cup runneth over!
