I think it's safe to say that this was my best birthday ever! I had almost a whole week of celebrations and had such an amazing time.
My birthday celebrations started off last Wednesday with dinner with my family in Dallas at one of my favorite mexican food restaurants, Pappasito's. My brother and I have birthdays 3 days apart so we always celebrate together.
Then Friday we had a party at my house with my friends. We had a fun night of just hanging out and playing Wii games. Unfortunately I didn't get any pictures. That's what happens when you are the photographer and it's your own party!
On Saturday (my actual birthday), Michael and I went to breakfast at this place I've been wanting to try for for awhile. It was so good! Then we both went to get pedicures! That was so fun! I love that he will go do that with me. He said that pedicures are women's best kept secret, haha!
Every Saturday I work at my church with the kid's and lead the registration/check-in team. Normally I would have taken off since it was my birthday, but that weekend was promotion weekend and all the kids were moving to new grades so it's just about the busiest weekend of the whole year. But it was fun being there and celebrating with my church family. They bought me cakes from Nothing Bundt Cakes and we had a mini celebration.
That night after church we went to dinner. The food was really yummy and they had live music, so fun!
On Sunday I went over to my parents house for what I thought was a welcome home party for my niece. Little did I know that they were throwing me a surprise birthday party. In my family they always have over the hill parties as a joke when anyone turns 30, 40, 50, etc. Well the year of my 30th birthday we had a lot going on in our family and we never had one, so they made up for it this year and surprised me! It was lots of fun! I got all kinds of gag gifts for old people including depends, gas relief, and my Grandmother even gave me her old cane! We all had a good time being together and celebrating. I also brought Michael so he was able to meet my whole family and that went really well. I also got to meet his brother yesterday. Thing are going really good in our relationship and he definitely helped make my birthday really special!
