Happy Birthday to Me & Weekend Recap


Well, today is my 29th birthday!  I cannot believe this is my last year in my twenties!  It gives me a little anxiety to think about, but I am also welcoming a new decade of my life that I think will probably the be best one yet!  Between the house and hopefully expanding our family I know that my thirties will be an amazing chapter of life, but I am going to make the most out of the 29th year of my life.  I'm spending the day today off of work, unpacking at the house, lunching with my bestie and mom, and hopefully getting to do some relaxing as well!

This past weekend was a bit of a whirlwind!  We had 2 weddings to attend, one Saturday and one Sunday so it was pretty much shot for getting anything done at the house.  Joe ended up having to work all day Saturday so I didn't ask much of him on Sunday because he really deserves a day off! All I asked was that he help me get my closet organizer up so I can start bringing clothes over. Thursday and Friday we ended up at the carnival that was in town.  They always have really awesome food, entertainment, and a nice beer garden.  I had a huge slice of pepperoni pizza, a foot long corn dog, deep fried Oreos, a pulled pork sandwich and cheese curds over two days.  It was all worth it, so yummy!  




treated myself to a mani too on Friday!

Saturday we had an early outdoor wedding to attend.  Joe never made it because of work so I went with my friend Jessica.  Her fiance Mike officiated the wedding so her and I went together and made it with about a minute to spare.  It was a beautiful day and a good time for sure.  They had it at a small state park so it was like a big picnic and it was very relaxing.  



Sunday it poured rain and stormed pretty much all day.  We had a wedding in the evening at 5.  It also happens to be my bestie and her husband's (aka my SIL & BIL) birthday weekend as well as hers is tomorrow and his is Wednesday so we did a little birthday celebrating at the wedding as well.  I love sharing my birthday weekend with her, (and him too I guess ;-)) we have always had awesome birthday extravaganzas, our 21st birthday's we spent 3 days in a row drinking because we had to celebrate each of our's!  


So my birthday is today, Jodie's is tomorrow, and Jon's is Wednesday, we all turn 29.  Jodie and Jon have been married for 11 years this year and are HS sweet hearts.  Joe and I have known each other for many years and got together in 2008.  Jodie and I have been friends for 24 years and are now sisters (in law) which is so fun! 



Friday we also go our furniture which was supposed to originally come on Wednesday.  I was really irritated with the whole situation because I had to reschedule Wednesday's delivery and then they no-showed me on Thursday (the rescheduled day), and then they finally got it here Friday around 4. Luckily, seeing the furniture here, and in person all set up really made up for how mad I was about the whole delivery situation.  It looks amazing and really makes this feel like a home now.  





Hope everyone has an amazing week!

  4. Happy Birthday!! Does ur hubby have a hard time putting up with ur Gemini ways? Lol jk! My husband tends to frustrate me with his weird mood swings. But who can blame him when he's dealing with a Leo. That food looks amazing! Fried oreos? I thought my brother was crazy when he told me about them now I realize they were real. Love ur little side table it looks rustic and goes with the theme of the House.

  18. I Finally Got Helped  !! I'm so excited right now, I just have to share my testimony on this Forum.. The feeling of being loved takes away so much burden from our shoulders. I had all this but I made a big mistake when I cheated on my wife with another woman  and my wife left me for over 4 months after she found out..  I was lonely, sad and devastated. Luckily I was directed to a very powerful spell caster Dr Emu who helped me cast a spell of reconciliation on our Relationship and he brought back my wife and now she loves me far more than ever.. I'm so happy with life now. Thank you so much Dr Emu, kindly Contact  Dr Emu Today and get any kind of help you want..
