Birthday Weekend Shenanigans

This past weekend was full of fun so let’s just jump right in, shall we? First let me start off with Friday at work. Laura had a special birthday surprise sent to my office, balloons and chocolate! Does she know how to make my day or what?!?! IMG_3461.JPG IMG_3463.JPG Friday I went to lunch with my friend Courtney, and after work I came home and cleaned the house and finished reading the ninth book in the Stephanie Plum series. Saturday – I got up bright and early and met my sister in Trussville for a little morning shopping. We walked around TJ Maxx and Target and then went up to the Pinnacle for a few minutes to do some birthday shopping for my niece who’s birthday is today! (Happy Birthday Haven!!!!!) She gave us some cantaloupes out of her garden and my birthday present. IMG_3468.JPG A curling iron, iron guard spray and three nail polishes! Can’t wait to try them all out! Around noon I headed home to meet up with Chris to start the birthday celebrations. He took me to pick up my birthday present: My first Kate Spade purse to join the collecting 🙂 IMG_3470.JPG   Look how fun the inside is!IMG_3471.JPG   Then we headed to World of Beer. Duh! I ordered the Tater Tot Nachos and they had a new Strawberry Cider on tap, Crown Valley Strawberry. It was delicious! I also tried to Trim Tab 88 which was amazing as well! IMG_3472.JPG IMG_3475.JPG IMG_3473.JPG   One of our friends, Jeff, happened to be there! Our favorite crew was working on Saturday, I snuck a picture with Charles. Our friends Lanney and Diane came down from Huntsville to meet up with us while we were there. When we were heading out, Destiny left me a sweet message: IMG_3476.JPG   We headed over to Southern Kitchen for dinner. I ordered the Jackson Burger that has bacon and pimento cheese. For an appetizer we had cajun angels, which are shrimp wrapped in bacon with a cajun sauce. Delicious! IMG_3477.JPG   After dinner we walked over to the Westin, ordered some drinks at Todd English and took them up to the roof top to chat. Sunday – We got the grocery shopping out of the way first thing Sunday morning, then headed to Game Stop to pick up a few games. We got Super Putty, Trial Fusions and the remastered Duck Tails. We checked out Bargain Hunt while we were out, and then headed to lunch at J Alexander’s! I ordered the Alex Salad and Potato Soup. IMG_3481.JPG IMG_3482.JPG   After lunch we went to the Galleria and I picked up the Urban Decay Setting Spray and my birthday gift from Sephora, then Chris took me to get us a slice of Cookie Cake to take home because it isn’t a birthday without cookie cake!!! It was Delicious!!!!! IMG_3485.JPG IMG_3486.JPG   We also stopped by 2nd and Charles and scored a great deal on Mario Tennis for our Gamecube. Sunday evening Chris’s parents stopped by to visit for a little while. We watched a little of pre-season football and tried out the Ducktails game, which was super fun until we got stuck on a part that neither of could get past and we gave up. We also watched a few reruns of Big Bang while we ate some black bean nachos then headed to bed. I had a packed weekend full of lots of fun!!!! All the text messages, facebook book and other social media shout outs were wonderful. I sure do know a lot of people that know how to make a girl feel extra special! Just like that, birthday weekend is over and it is back to reality! Weekending

    Happy birthday! Cantaloupe from a real live garden?! I want I want.

    Balloons and chocolate at work at always a great surprise. Bacon and pimento cheese sound delish! I never used to like bacon but -for some reason- as I get older I do.
