Cake Anyone?

It's the last day of August, so I thought I'd get one more birthday cake in. The boy's Aunt and her family threw a little birthday get-together for all the August babies in the family (I was so ecstatic that they included me! :) We had yummy dinner and then Hannah baked a from scratch red velvet cake with cream cheese icing. And then she ate it all. 

PS. Check out her little sister's reaction! Ha!

PC Beach

For almost 20 years, us girls have taken the same trip every summer. My mom, her bestie (of 40 years!), the bestie's 2 girls and myself. And every year we have a blast doing the same thing. Laying on the beach reading our books, eating while constantly talking about the next meal and watching silly medical shows until we can't keep our eyes open. Surprisingly I didn't take that many pictures, but here's some I did take if you'd like to see...

Mind-numbingly beautiful

Lots of things have been going on that are making me feel a little numb and not inspired. Hate that. These photos help a little bit...

Birthday Video

I'm 25! The boy took me kayaking (I didn't take my phone), out to eat and to the Braves game. Then I threw myself a little dinner party.

[ps. excuse the change of viewing due to the silly video taker at that time. and beware of the boy's "bankhead bounce".]

I'm at the beach!

I'll be uploading my birthday video tomorrow. But for now I'm enjoying sunshine, good books and margaritas with my girls.

Laughter and Cake

My dinner party last night was one of the best I've had. There was a group of 8 of us. Eating tacos, drinking margaritas, singing happy birthday and the best of all, laughing. I even lost my voice a little from laughing so much. 

Friends really do mean the world to me, and I'm so thankful for mine.

Flawed Beauty

I can't get over the beauty...

Birthday Party

Maybe when I decide to really grow up and buy a cute little house, I'll throw great backyard parties. They'll be great. I'm determined. Until then, I'll dream and come up with great ideas for how to celebrate birthdays.

(Check out those streamers! Here's a tutorial. Pictures 2 [how amazing is that chocolate cup!], 3 and 4.)

Party Dress

I'm seeing a theme in my last couple of posts...BIRTHDAY!! Keeping in theme...let's talk about party dresses! As I mentioned before, the boy has planned an entire day with birthday activities this weekend. He made a comment a week or so ago about having dinner reservations to fancy shmancy place. I don't really have a lot of dresses, so here's some inspiration (even though I could probably only afford one of these dresses :)

Margarita anyone?

The boy took me out last night for a delectable margarita to celebrate my "birth week". Ha! The festivities have begun! 

He has planned out Saturday completely. I'm ecstatic. Then spending Sunday with my momma. Monday night (THE night!) with friends for dinner. Then the following weekend at the beach with my girlies! Whoo-hoo!

What are you up to this weekend? I'm going on a breakfast date with the boy tomorrow. Then I'm tackling my dresser. By painting, that is. Hope you stay cool in this wretched heat!

Diving Faces

I literally laughed out loud when I saw these photos. Hope this makes your Friday morning just a little bit funnier.

The Cubbies

Historic Wrigley Field is probably on my Top 10 list of favorite places. My heart was extremely happy to be there over July 4th weekend. Last time I was at Wrigley I was in my early teens. So now that I'm older (remember, birthday is right around the corner!) I have a different appreciation for the field, the ambiance and Wrigleyville. And I'm not gonna lie, I was pretty excited about my brat and beer at the game.

Actually it's in 2 weeks, but I couldn't help myself. I'M JUST TOO EXCITED!! (Birthday's are the best.)

Adventure: The Big Easy

This weekend, the boy was craving some Cajun food. So thanks to Google, we found "the best hidden gem" in Atlanta. We were a little skeptical walking in due to lack of customers. However the $4.50 drink specials perked me right up. I indulged in a Sex In The Quarter (similar to sex on the beach, but better), a bourbon salmon blt and some beignets. All in all, successful adventure.
