Birthday Celebration

I celebrated my 27th birthday last Saturday…..oh boy did I celebrate it! I was spoiled by my family and friends and had a birthday extravaganza that started on Friday and ended on Sunday. I had so much fun and took wayyy too many pictures. I tried to narrow it do to a few that summed up the weekend.
Let's get started
Friday started off with lunch at Conner Bakery. My Mom had the table all decorated. This is what I saw when I walked in the door. I was so thrilled that I had birthday balloons!! Can you tell which one of these lovely ladies is my Mom? She’s the one standing up by the balloons.

I was showered with cards and presents. This picture was a gift from my Mom. I’m toying with the idea of painting Parker’s name somewhere on it. Once I get our laundry room painted this little guy will be hung on the wall right next to the dog beds.
After lunch we hit up Sam Moon. No one left empty handed! If you’ve ever been to Sam Moon you know it’s really hard to go in that place without buying something. After shopping we headed on to tour a few model homes (I’ll be posting about our tour later) and rounded out the afternoon with a chit-chat break at Starbucks (another one of my favorite spots).
Me and my Mom. Isn't she pretty?

I manage to spill my drink all over my white shirt while we were at Starbucks. My Mom felt bad for me and treated me to another birthday gift……a new shirt to replace the one I ruined. A quick outfit change and we were on to our next location.

Cru Wine Bar for a glass of wine and……..

a visit with my brother who is the bartender at Cru.

On to Saturday (which was my actual birthday). Kent had been asking me what I wanted to do for my birthday for weeks. I could not make my mind up but knew I wanted to start the morning off feeding the local horses. I LOVE HORSES and hope to have one of my own in the future. We loaded up a bag with carrots and apples. I was their best friend, until we ran out of goodies.

Can you tell that I have their attention!

Ahhh I just LOVE them! I could have stayed there All day!

After we fed the horses we made our way to my favorite Indian restaurant. Look at the scrumptious cupcakes my friend surprised me with. They were delish!

Me and my pal Jen-Jen. We’ve been friends since middle school. I promise I’m wearing clothes even though it looks like I’m not in the next few pics ;o)

Jennifer's hubby and their little one; isn’t he a doll! Jen dressed him in a little outfit I that I gave her at his baby shower. He looked soooo cute and was a little angel at lunch. He melts my heart and I was so happy to have him there with us.

Me and Angela

Andrea and Troy

After lunch we headed to Starbucks (are you noticing a trend) and played a few board games. We ended the evening with a movie and a burger from Whataburger. Umm, no I’m not weighing in at Weight Watchers this week. They would probably kick me out if they knew all the bad food I ate over the weekend. Don’t worry I’m on damage control :o)

On to Sunday…..

a nice relaxing day at the lake with some good friends.

See what I mean when I said I was spoiled this year? I had a birthday weekend fit for a princess, domestic princess that is. I’m so blessed to have such wonderful family and friends that care enough about me to make my birthday such a special event.
I’m sure you can tell my pictures are looking a little wacky this time. I’ve been playing around with If you don’t know who they are check them out. I’ve had a lot of fun with their site!

Kent joined in on the fun once he was done with work. After a glass of wine we walked over to a local pizzeria and had a lovely dinner together.
