Birthday Celebration!

Happy Sunday evening! I wish this weekend would never end! I’m on call from 7a-3p tomorrow and then I’m working 3p-7p for somebody. It’s supposed to be sunny out, so I’m really keeping my fingers crossed not to get called in so that I only have to put up with 4 hours in the ER on a Monday!

This weekend has been a good one! I worked all day on Friday, so decided to just hang out at home on Friday night. Jon and I ended up watching three hours of documentaries on the prison system in Georgia before calling it a night!

Saturday morning was my beloved Cardio Muscle Mix via ClassPass! I was feeling a little beat at the beginning, but I think my shoulders just aren’t ready for planks at 9am! Laura and I decided to grab some breakfast afterwards since I was seriously starving during class. I do love me some Saturday morning gym time and breakfast time with Laura!

I knew I was going to have a late night out to celebrate my upcoming 29th birthday so I figured I needed to rest up! The old lady in me doesn’t do well past 10pm. It was dreary out, so after a quick shower, I laid down on the couch and didn’t move for four hours. It was awesome.

I got up, got ready, and headed down to Kassie’s house to meet up with the girls! We started our evening off with some Fireball, Sprite, and music videos (apparently, as you welcome 29, music videos suddenly become intriguing again).

We decided to head out to dinner and then hit up a club to shake our groove thangs!

Laura, Gina, Kassie, and me front and center! Also, I think that may be pollen on my boob from setting up the camera.

We went to Ra Sushi to eat dinner and we were a little disappointed in our service! We started out with a nice buzz and it was totally gone by the time we finally made it out! Everything went great, but they brought my roll out first and said the entrees for the other girls would be out shortly after. Over 30 minutes later, we had no more food and our server never came back! We grabbed another server to ask what was going on and our food immediately came out after that. They did give me a free birthday dessert which was pretty awesome and it was huge, but still… the wait kind of killed our stamina. Also killing my stamina (or just my mood, whatever)- snagging the front of my dress on my bracelet. UGH.

Dang humidity in Georgia ruins any good hair day…

After our dinner, we decided to head over to Opera. My ex-boyfriend is a bouncer there, so I was really hoping he’d be working so that I’d get a chance to see him for the first time in awhile (we get along great). Unfortunately, he wasn’t working but he did hook us up with some VIP service and a free bottle of champagne! So sweet of him! While we were walking into the club, we realized it has been ten years since I dated him! It’s really amazing how fast time has gone by!

It was 80s night at Opera which was a little hard to get into since our Fireball had already worn off long before, but we still had fun! We found some seating outside too and enjoyed the peace and quiet outside (seriously, we’re so old).

We headed out around midnight. One of the bouncers actually stopped us to ask us why we were leaving and I actually said, “It’s getting really close to our bedtime!” and he let us go without another question. He must be able to tell we aren’t 21 anymore…

Jon picked Laura and I up after our night ended (no DUIs for me!) and I got a good night of sleep!

This morning, I had planned on going to yoga with Kass, but Jon wanted to hike. Somehow our communication got a bit discombobulated and we ended up looking at open houses all afternoon and not hiking at all. I was hoping to get a hike in since I like doing something active on all of my days off, but I think I should just be glad for an entire day off. My hip and my thumb have been hurting a little bit, so it’s probably better not to overdo it.

It was a lot of fun looking at open houses. We still aren’t in the market to buy yet, but we like browsing! Besides, it was a beautiful day to be out and driving around! We looked up near my mom and dad’s house, which was perfect cause we were going there for my birthday dinner!

I had asked for my favorite sweet potato casserole and cheesecake for my birthday meal! My parents grilled some chicken and then made a kale salad and cheesy bread too. It was a seriously delicious dinner! We enjoyed it out on the patio too since it was still so nice out! My mom gave me some cash for my birthday and wrote in the card “I owe you a chai candle when they go on sale too.” Haha. Jon and I were cracking up. My parents are definitely not hard up for money so it was hilarious that my mom would wait to get my a birthday gift till the candles go on sale. My mom and I are so similar. Jon always jokes about it but at least he know what he’ll be getting in 30 years! I had a really nice time having dinner with them, especially since it’s been awhile since we’ve been able to go over for dinner!

Jon and I got home with some daylight to spare, so I went for a walk while he took a nap for a bit. I spent some time organizing photos when I got home, and now Jon is awake! I’m sure we’ll watch some House of Cards or more prison documentaries till bedtime comes around!

    Happy birthday! Sounds like fun 🙂

  3. I think you said your birthday is on May 1st, in case you don’t post ’til then, Happy Birthday! Sounds like you a great time minus the crappy service.

  4. It sounds like you had a great time (btw I remember when you dated said bouncer boyfriend!). Hooray for your birthday and celebrating with friends- love how you’re still friends with your high school friends too because so many people our age (including myself) aren’t. Your dessert looks delicious too!

    • Yes, I was so crazy back then that it’s really shocking that we managed to get along so well as we’ve gotten older! Haha. I don’t know where I’d be without my friends from high school! I haven’t made many in my adult years, but maybe because I’ve always had them!

  5. Happy Birthday! Looks like you had an amazing and fun night…minus the snagging your dress on your bracelet part. lol
