weekend recap {birthday edition}

it was my birthday on sunday. i turned the big 2-7. oy. it sounds so much older than 26, and is thatmuchcloser to 30. gulp. i had a great, busy weekend celebrating my birthday with friends and family.

my weekend started friday, as i took off work to work on a couple projects. though i got distracted with my friend’s pool (harris country club), i did manage to finish them! (here’s a sneak peek of one – posts to come)

on saturday i didn’t get to go ‘birthday boating’ as planned since the weather sucked most of the day, but i stayed busy. lots of cleaning. baking cupcakes. making sangria. birthday dinner with the girls (thanks again!). celebrating at my house, and then at a neighborhood bar (and stayed out way to late!).

ryan got me a flip cam for my birthday! so now you will get to enjoy videos as well, i’m sure. here’s my first one. ryan had a little trouble finding candles and improvised with a match for my happy birthday song.

sunday i was treated to breakfast in bed (biscuits and gravy, ryan’s specialty) and then i headed to my friend brooke’s baby shower, complete with fantastic food and adorable gifts (so excited to meet baby jack in less than 6 weeks!). afterwards i headed to my parent’s house where i enjoyed delicious food, drinks, and family time. i also got fabulous presents – lots of cute clothes, my fave!

hope you had a good one too!
