My birthday month of February has been amazing so far! Two weekends ago, my friend Donna and I had a joint birthday weekend extravaganza! Friday night we went bowling with some friends:
|Me and the guys!|
Saturday night, we all went out to Fado Irish Pub in Buckhead. We had an awesome time out – I saw friends I haven’t seen in months, Jessica got me a PINK strawberry banana smoothie cupcake (yum!) with trick candles, and Tilae got me a gorgeous “princess/girl’s best friend” martini glass that I can’t wait to drink out of (it has a rhinestoned stem!)! Overall, I just really enjoyed talking and dancing with everyone.

Sunday, we went to my friend Richie’s place. A bunch of us went to see Denzel Washington and Ryan Reynolds in Safe House and then eat a delicious Italian dinner Richie cooked for us! Yum! Sidenote: The movie was good, but there was definitely not enough shirtless Ryan…even my guy friends were a little disappointed!
Valentine’s Day was my actual birthday! At work, the whole office went for Mexican food for lunch. They also got me this awesome gift below! Wasn’t that so nice of them?! And, they didn’t even know the quote used to be my blog’s profile picture on Facebook. (“Like” my blog page here if you love birthdays!)
Later that night, David made homemade lasagna -how we met…so romantical, no?! We ate a funfetti cake his cousins made me for my birthday as we watched Drive with Ryan Gosling. I don’t recommend it on Valentine’s Day…it got a little gory once people’s heads started getting blown off. We also had heart shaped cinnamon rolls for breakfast the next day! Nom, nom, nom!
|Isn’t this cute? Each cousin made a different part of it – the roses, the writing, and the tiara/glass slipper sprinkles!|
|Everything tastes better in heart shaped form!|
|My valentine for David :o)|
Friday, I surprised David with this (below) as seen on Pinterest. In typical guy form, he walked right by it and didn’t even notice…oh, boys! All the better for me to ambush him with my Nerf gun, my dear!
Then we had a YUMMY dinner at The Melting Pot! Even though I’ve only been there twice, I think it is one of my favorite restaurants – you get to cook your own food, eat fondue, and it has two of my favorite things to dip stuff in: cheese and chocolate! Plus, since I joined the Fondue Club when we celebrated our anniversary last year, I received chocolate covered strawberries for my birthday! Be jealous!
|I am obsessed with chocolate covered strawberries!|
But, David also brought these over too (below). Not what I need after a week of Valentine’s Day candies and birthday cake! Alas, I am still excited it is Girl Scout Cookie season!
|I decided to throw in a box of Sammoas although I’m a Thin Mint girl at heart. Chocolate is good for your heart and coconut is a fruit, right?!|
Now, I’m off to the greatest place on Earth to finish my birthday month – Walt Disney World for the Disney Princess Half Marathon! My mom and I were specially chosen for the runDisney Social Media Meet Up with Olympian Jeff Galloway! We get to run two miles with Jeff through the Disney parks and then have a lovely chat about training and running! We even get runDisney shirts and some “special surprises” along the way! I cannot wait! Be sure to follow my blog, my Facebook, and my Twitter for instant posts about this weekend!
Check out this post on my last Disney run at Disneyland in January – the Tinkerbell Half. Plus, I’ve posted some of my favorite photos below – hilarious!
I can fly! I can fly! I can fly!
