Birthday weekend recap

I had an overall decent weekend, but ended up working both days and nights from home. I’m not trying to have a pity party over here or anything, but it's really starting to wear on me. I was up until 1:30am last night and that was my birthday. Not a great way to end the day if you ask me.

I did get to go out on Friday night with Kelly and we went to our usual summer spot…The Deck. I ran into a bunch of people that I know and the weather was perfect. They had an 80’s theme going and we heard some great music that brought back fun memories.

Saturday, I worked on and off and went to the pool for about an hour with Kelly and Geof. Saturday night we went out and met up with some of our other friends. We didn’t stay out for long.

Sunday, Geof and I met up with my mom and her boyfriend for lunch. We decided to go to Olive Garden because it would be fast, since I had work to do and Geof had to travel to Virginia. I received some fabulous gifts and it was nice to be around my family. Later that afternoon, I went to the pool and relaxed for a little. It was kind of nice to clear my head for a few hours. After that, I met up with Kelly and we grabbed a bite to eat and then went back to my house to watch True Blood. I had to say goodbye as soon as it was over, since I had work to do.

I also wanted to mention that Gwen sent me the sweetest birthday surprise! I went to the mailbox on Saturday and inside was the cutest OPI summer nail polish set, a citrus lotion and pink nail file. I thought it was so sweet of her to think of me and I appreciate it very much. I swear you ladies in blog-land are the best! I don’t mean that because of getting cards or presents, but it’s just the thought and sweet wishes that count. I have friends in real life that don’t even remember my birthday, so it means a lot that people I have never met care enough to stop by and wish me a happy day.


Last but not least, the gifts! Geof surprised me in a major way and got me the Kooba Blake bag that I wanted. The leather is so buttery soft and the color is perfect. It is also huge and I cannot wait to start using it. I found out that is was named after Blake Lively and being that I’m a huge Gossip Girl fan, I thought that was kind of fun. He also got me the Dior Lip Glow that I wanted and the book, Pretty in Plaid.
