Quarter Century Old!!

Oh my how time flies when you're having fun :) I'm finally getting my ducks in a row and doing a birthday post, albeit a bit late, but better than never right!? The celebration started on Friday as soon as I got off work and I went to go pick up the much anticipated cake! It turned out quite well and I think most people, the bakery included, were somewhat impressed by the 'quarter' theme, haha. I rushed home to grab W so we could hang out with our aunt 'D' and go to the movies. We saw the new movie 'Letters to Juliet'. Very disappointing. I'm not one for predictable lovey dovey movies in the first place and quite honestly would have much rather gone and seen Iron Man 2, but I digress. As soon as the movie was over I left W and D's company and rushed to aiport to pick up Mr. Man. He was orginally not supposed to be in town for my birthday weekend, however, he was able to work his magic and he was able to be here (insert ridiculously huge grin here). We all went out for a family dinner, not the parents but my aunt d, cousin, Mr. Man, W, Uncle R, and cousins girlfriend. We managed to make a scene at a very small italian restaurant where we always go for birthdays and laughed until our stomach's hurt. We went back home enjoyed some of the delicious red velvet cake and by that point I thought I was going to have to be rolled out of the door from so much food!

Saturday the day of my actual b-day, we went to breakfast, hung out and got our nails did, and then it was time to partaaahy! We enjoyed some hot dogs and beers at the baseball game and the party continued into the wee hours of the morning. It was honestly one of the best birthday's in a very long time. I was surrounded by the people that I love and cherish and that in itself makes for a great day regardless of the activities planned. Here's to being half way to 50 and offically part of the quarter century club! Enjoy the pics, and I had to throw a picture in there of the little guy trying to look big and tough as well :)

He thinks he is as big as a dog on most days.

The epic cake! Bow, stripes, and quarters, oh my!
B-E-A-U-T-I-F-U-L flowers from Mr. Man.
Close up of the whale and on of the quarters, it was just as delicious to eat as it was pretty :)
