Birthday Weekend

I had a wonderful birthday weekend! Saturday was a nice relaxing day and it was wonderful getting to actually spend my birthday with Mike this year! (Last year, for three weeks, Mike worked in the landfill with the LMPD police academy. He would work 12-15 hour days, so I didn't get to spend my birthday with him last year. Luckily I have an amazing sister who made sure I still had a special day!)

Saturday evening Mike and I went out to eat with Elyse and Alex to celebrate my birthday. Before we left I opened my present from Mike:

Mike always get me the sweetest cards!

The "True Love" ring Mike got me!!

Toby was excited about my birthday too!

After opening my gift, we headed down to Elyse's house and I got to open up my present down there!

I got a turkey hand from Alexander!

I LOVE cards from Bubby!

I got Project Runway makeup and a beautiful scarf from Lysie, Alex and Alexander! (Bubby wouldn't look at the camera!)

Then the adults went to Martini for dinner!! It was so much fun and so delicious!

Elyse and I got Royal Flush martinis:

We had to get pictures with the Summit's Christmas decorations

This picture was a complete accident & we laughed about it the whole night!! The joke of the night was that this would be our Christmas card!!

After a lot of laughter, we went to Orange Leaf for dessert! It was amazing! It is a yogurt bar, where you can choose your flavor of yogurt and then add whatever toppings you like! I got birthday cake flavored yogurt, with brownies and sprinkles!

I had an amazing 24th birthday and enjoyed getting to spend a night out with Mike, Elyse and Alex! I can't wait to see what God has in store for my life this year!


  1. What a fun birthday celebration! The pictures of you and Mike are great - such a pretty couple. Never been to Martini, but I love Orange Leaf! Happy Birthday!
