So, I had a good birthday.

On Wednesday, Evan treated me to a delicious dinner at Silly Goose, dessert at Jeni's and then a date to the movies to see Madagascar 3. It wasn't what we had planned on (Kristin Chenoweth concert was postponed due to illness, boo) but it was still so fun.

Work on Thursday was a blast and a half. I haven't been paid so much attention by a group of women since attending cheerleading camp on my birthday for four years straight. Panera treats, orange and blue balloons, lunch at the restaurant of my choosing, gorgeous flowers from my boss and her fiancé, cake and two different birthday cards, one in the morning and one in the afternoon. I felt SO special all day long! The texts and tweets and Facebook messages were icing on the cake. I got to "talk" to my nephew after work and hearing him squeal what I just KNOW sounded like "Happy Birthday!" in his head was just perfect. I had a few rounds of drinks with some friends after work before heading home to pack.

I was off work on Friday so I got to Birmingham way before lunch, with plenty of time to visit with everyone. I was so glad to see my family, especially the littlest one! That night, Mom and Fred took my sister and I on a date to a special restaurant called Brio. Neither Jennie nor I had been there before; it was so yummy and we had a great time but we missed Jamie and the baby!

The next day we ran some errands and laid low. I got to snuggle with dumpling while his mommy made me a yummy homemade dinner and that ice cream pie you see pictured above (ignore the hat). The icing on the cake, if you will, for the birthday week was filling up my car for $2.99 a gallon on the way home.

Thanks to my family and friends that went through such trouble to make my day so special! Not gonna lie, that may have been the best birthday yet!
