I had a fantastic birthday weekend...
in case you were wondering.
It was spent having dinner at Lovely's Fifty Fifty with Craig and our friends Jake & Casey (the ones of Olympic swimsuit infamy).
My amazing pizza.
Then we went to Mint 820 for drinks and met up with more friends. (side note: You should totally go to Mint - best drinks ever).
Afterward we headed to East Burn and played skee ball and buck hunter. Pretty intense competition.
We got home at 11:45 (that's pretty late to be out for us these days) and I felt young again...but also kind of old and exhausted, but it was fun going out with our childless friends.
It was a little less fun when this little lady woke me up every two hours all night wanting to eat. Not awesome Fern. Apparently babies don't care if it's your birthday or not.
Craig made up for it by getting up with Fern in the morning so I could sleep longer...
AND he made me chocolate chip banana pancakes AND two iced mochas (two, because I accidentally knocked over the first one - ooops!).
Then we went to Home Depot and chose a paint color for the outside of our house and I bought some things to make Fern a little ballet barre in her room. That might not make sense, but you'll get it when you see it (I'll post it!). It was fun and relaxing. I wore cute comfy clothes - some new birthday duds... the fun new necklace that Craig got me from Beam & Anchor, the Saltwater sandals I'm totally obsessed with from my lovely friend Echo and (one) of my new shirts from my mom.
Later we went over to Craig's parent's house for a birthday BBQ and my family came over too. We do most holidays (birthdays, Christmas, Easter, etc...) all together as a group, which is really convenient and much less stressful than having to run around to a million places.
I forced Craig into taking a family photo.
He hates posed photos, but he obliged me since it was my birthday :).
We had a lovely dinner and my in-laws got me this delicious cake from Papa Hayden - raspberry gateau - my favorite!
All in all it was a weekend full of fun with friends and family.
I felt so loved and truly spoiled. Everyone really made it such a special day and especially Craig. He did a million tiny, little things to make me feel absolutely adored all weekend long. I really do have a fantastic husband.
Hope you all had a great weekend and thank you for the birthday wishes!
