birthday recap!

welp. I've been MIA for the past week... but this time instead of being busy with work, I've been busy with fun... which is ALWAYS a good thing if you ask me.

the birthday celebrations began on Saturday, which consisted of a new full set of gel nails and a milk & honey pedicure with my best friend, Laura. from there, we went to Mimi's Cafe for lunch, where I enjoyed a delicious meal of shrimp & spinach ravioli with scallops and a Malibu Bay Breeze to drink.

from there, I went home and took a much needed nap, and then got ready to go celebrate at one of our favorite bars, Nick's, which serves as a country/karaoke bar. it's always such a good time, and this past weekend was no exception.

all our friends arrived and started drinking and the night took off from there. the girls (mainly Laura, Kaley, and myself) sang lots of karaoke (including Sugarland and Taylor Swift) and we even had a few guys get up to sing! I'm so lucky to have such amazing friends - I'm so glad they all came out to celebrate with me - it definitely made for one of my favorite birthdays! it was a great night overall, and the birthday girl got a little toasted being that I was given so many free shots and beers! my dad even made an appearance and bought us a couple rounds of jello shots. let's just say that ravioli tasted just as good coming up as it did going down, haha.

and now for the fun part - pictures! these pictures are courtesy of my camera, along with the cameras of Kaley & Aubrey. I think the pictures prove what a drunken and wonderful time we all had!

and then for my actual birthday, we had a big dinner with my family and best friend at the Cheesecake Factory last night. in fact, I'm pretty sure I'm still full from all the food I consumed. I got to hang out with my little brother, Wyatt, which is always awesome. he'll be two years old at the end of May, and while he's steadily approaching his "terrible two" phase, he's still cute as ever and is constantly making me laugh. I didn't take many pictures last night (must have been too busy stuffing my face), but here are a few!

FACT: I have the best husband ever. let me just say this - the man has never gotten me a card, EVER. no birthday, no Valentine's Day, no Christmas... nothing. so when I got home yesterday to see this, I was floored. not only did he get me a card, but he got me the perfect one. it's got PEARS on it - how fucking badass is that? thoughtful husband WIN!

I have to say, the only time I actually felt 24 was when I was extremely hungover all day on Sunday. thank you to all my friends and family for making my birthday so special!

and now back to our regularly scheduled blog - I'll be posting at least two more times today to catch up! :D
