a weekend of birthday-ing


Last Friday was my birthday, and I got to celebrate for four days because my friends and family are awesome. They are the best. And they just know that’s what’s going to happen this time of year because I love birthdays and I kinda milk it.

4. Sweet Republic ice cream; my 2nd of many desserts over the weekend :)

The festivities started Thursday night at work with a yummy homemade pie and sparklers– which are kinda scary when they are indoors… BTW. Friday Brian and I spent the day just hanging out together and Saturday a group of us went tubing down the river.

A big thank you to Ollie who was brave enough to take his camera on the river and snap these photos!!

Sunday I got to see my bestie who lives in a land far, far away (Italy-lucky!) and is here visiting. We spent the day poolside at a resort with a purty view. It was an infinity pool. With mojitos. Yeah, totally awesome.

All in all it was a great weekend, and sure took the edge off of the whole another-year-older thing :) Cheers to another great year and my super special friends!

    sounds like an awesome few days. That vegie dog looks delicious! I tried your sweet potato quesadillas the other day and they were delicious. I eat meat but have been trying to cut down a bit and all your delicious looking food is inspiring me.
