Monday already! I was looking forward to last weekend for so long, and now it’s sadly over. It was however fantastic, and I had a great and relaxing birthday. Let’s backtrack to Friday.
My sweet husband had the kitchen/living room decorated when I woke up and had my gift ready. He left for work, and I got to work. I went to the gym, finished up work around 3:00, and started packing for the weekend. Bobby got home and we headed to my parents house in Louisiana. I couldn’t wait to get there, I hadn’t seen my pups in over a week! (They were being watched by my parents while we were at the beach.) When we went into the house my mom had decorated the dining room in pink!
even the cake plates, candles, and napkins were pink.
We told the dogs hello and were showered with kisses, then we headed out to eat dinner for my birthday, further confusing the poor animals. After dinner, we came home for presents, cake, and ice cream! Bobby got me some roses, too.
Then my mom had me leave while she “got the cake ready” oh boy.
My pretty cake! (Delicious, too!)

Good times were had by all. Saturday my mom made pancakes and bacon for breakfast, then Bobby and I had a meeting to go to. After lunch my mom and I took a 35 minute walk, and my dad BBQ’ed for dinner. We went out and got a snowball (of course) after dinner, and then rented a movie. (We rented Gone with Amanda Seyfreid, it was really good!)
Sunday we went to church and had leftover BBQ’ed food for lunch, and then we headed back to Mississippi.
It was relaxing and fun, a great way to spend my birthday! If only every day were this much fun.
QOTD: What is your favorite flavor of ice cream? Did you know yesterday was national ice cream day?
So. Made. Me. Smile.
I love how much you were celebrated.
Glad you had a great weekend! We need to hang out again soon!! It’s been too long! :0)

Looks like you had a fun birthday. I love all the pink everywhere and that your parents decorated and Bobby surprised you with the roses :).
I did know about National Ice Cream Day! I ate white chocolate raspberry frozen yogurt in honor of it too (okay, so not ice cream, but that’s what we had).
Looks like such a fun bday weekend! That cake looks SO good!
Happy Birthday!!! Sounds like it was wonderful:)

Meredith @ DareYouTo says
Happy birthday!!! Sounds like a lovely time. So sweet that your husband decorated; a nice pink surprise 🙂
My favorite flavor? Usually chocolate, or a chocolate-vanilla swirl. But if something has the word “cookie dough” in it, I’m sold.
oohh I heart cookie dough ice cream!

Happy belated birthday! Looks like it was a good one.
My favorite ice cream flavor involves anything with caramel in it. It could be caramel flavored flip flop and I would love it.

And my favorite ice cream flavor .. right now I’d have to say it’s the bananas foster flavor at creole creamery.
Aww happy birthday, lady! Looks like a wonderful day! My birthday is in 2 weeks and I just realized I have no idea what I want to do, haha!
Happy birthday! I hope my husband spoils me on my birthday! Looks like a great weekend.

Happy Birthday – glad you had a great weekend celebrating. I had no clue that yesterday was National Ice Cream Day. Luckily, I didn’t let it pass by as I made some homemade Chunky Monkey “Ice Cream” for my roommate and I! Yum, yum! Delicous.
Aw, that’s awesome! You deserved every minute of it!
I love the way your mom goes all out and flowers from Bobby are so cute. So glad you had a great day you deserve it!
