April 7th was my 31st birthday. I tried and tried to just let it creep by without notice but my friends and family weren't letting that happen.
I am a lucky girl and I have some special people in my life who weren't about to let my birthday slip by un-noticed.
I dropped Hailey off at my aunts and when I arrived she had a giant bottle of wine, a pretty plant and a card holding some cold hard cash waiting for me! She knows me well =)
The day rolled on and my Facebook was FILLED with birthday wishes... I honestly didn't think that many people cared. I am a lucky girl.
I went to lunch with two of my best friends... Chili's of course. A birthday isn't complete without chips and salsa! And yes... I made room to stuff myself with some enchilada soup and a yummy salad.
When I got back to work (FULLLLL as could be) my boss handed me a gift certificate for another favorite of mine, SUSHI!!!!!!!! I headed to a friends office to help her with something (Work-related, if you can't believe that ;) she says to me "did you see your cake?" to which I replied "Huh?" and she says "OOPS! I think I spoiled a surprise". When I got back to my desk my boss and another co-worker had busted out a giant "pig pickin'" cake. I was so surprised (well for the most part LOL I had kinda heard something about it already".
By the time I got home, I didn't even want to think about dinner. Doesn't sound like I ate THAT much but it wasn't sitting well. I'm normally a super healthy eater, so eating some of the things I don't eat regularly all in the same day made my stomach ache! I wasn't hungry so Craig whipped up a frozen pizza LOL it smelled so good I had to have a couple slices... and you can't have pizza without a couple of beers. I know most people don't think of frozen pizza as much of a birthday celebration meal but it was perfect for me. Craig and I have a special place in our hearts for frozen pizza LOL we often celebrate holidays that way! I sat back, relaxed and hung out with my two FAVORITE people for the rest of the evening!!!!
Finally, the weekend rolled around. Craig Hailey-sat so I could get my hair cute and my friend Deidra met me there and her husband came to our house to "help" Craig. Deidra and I headed from my hair appointment to get pedicures. MUCH needed. I never have time to do my toes anymore! I know it sounds crazy, just takes a few minutes but I am a busy girl and I rarely get the time.
Later we met up with some family for dinner at my favorite Mexican restaurant. MMMMM more chips and salsa AND of course some beer =)
Me and my girl!
Me and my other girl ;)
