I'm such a slacker. My birthday was over a week ago, and I still haven't done a post on it. Here is my birthday review! I woke up earlier than I would have liked. I was planning on sleeping in, but I rolled with the punches and got my lazy butt out of bed and went to the gym. It was wonderful! There were very few people there and I didn't feel like i was being rushed. Great way to start the day.

Andrew woke up "early" for us to go to lunch. I was supposed to pick the place, and the only thing I wanted was a grilled cheese. We went to B&G Tasty Food, and I was presently surprised. This might be my new place for work lunches to go. Fast, cheap, and tasty. Win, win, win.

After that, Andrew had a surprise for me! Cupcake Island cupcakes! He is too good! They were fantastic. Omg. I want one right now. Then we opened presents! I saved all of my cards for my big day so it was fun to have a lot to open. I saved Andrew's for last and of course it was the best. Jewelry!

I love pearls and he chose something so classic. I love it! I am saving the bracelet and the necklace for special occasions but I wear the earrings all the time. After gifts, I was exhausted and because it was my bday, I took a nap.

Infinium champagne beer. Worth every penny!

After I woke up, we popped some bubbly and got ready for dinner.

We met up with some hometown friends for a feast at La Casa. I didn't like the service (we were there for over 2 hours...) but the food was great! I was so glad that they were all able to come out.

Then Andrew and I said goodbye so we could head to the Waiting Room to rock out to some Leslie and the Lys! We met up with some other friends, rocked out in our custom gem sweaters, and had a great time! And guess what?! More gifts! Andrew got me a shirt and a record. I even got Leslie to sign it. What a great end to a great bday!


  1. Your Birthday sounds awesome! Way to enjoy the whole day! I have a hard time even recognizing my Birthdays anymore...I am always down because they are nothing like they used to be, but why not?! I need to make them special and fun!! :)

  2. Very sweet birthday pic! Looks like you had a wonderful time and best part was spending it with good friends. I am spending time right now in Alb, NM with very special family and hate to think of leaving them. Back to Iowa tomorrow! Oh and BTW you have no idea what old really is!!! LOL
