High Five to Year 35!

I love Birthday’s.  And, no, I am ABSOLUTELY NOT that girl who says I am 29 and holding.  Gross.   Embrace age.   Life just gets better year after year.  I have straight up loved my life in my thirties.

Bring on 35!

The Hubs wins again with flowers delivered on Monday for my “Birthday Week”.   His mama taught him right, I’d say.  What a sweetheart.

My Thursday AM Insanity class surprised me with balloons and a card, thanks to Alice’s sneaky ways. 🙂  And we had a packed house (24) so we had crazy energy circulating that room on Thursday.  I’ll take that as a birthday present for SURE!

Friday I took a half day off and indulged in a spa appointment with my fave girl Becky at Victor Victoria, followed by Sushi with Tyree and Tracy and then a lash appointment at Living Beautifully.

Friday night we enjoyed dinner with Clint’s brother J and wife Shelby.  Always a treat with those two.  We only live about 15 miles apart, but yet we tend to only see each other when we all travel to Clarinda for parties and holidays.  #lifehappens

Can’t tell they’re related at all…

Saturday morning started with a Starbucks and a card from my witty husband before we made our way to good ol’ town of Clarinda.   We have had so much going on the month of August that I just wanted to get away.  So, we did!

10:30 hair appointment with the amazing Kayla followed by a mini BBQ at my mom’s house with Gabe, mom, Gr’ma and Clint.  It was a perfect lunch date.

Bottom right hand corner is Ms. Chloey, my “niece”.  😉 She tracked me down later that evening to give me the coolest gift I’ve ever received.   How CUTE is she?

Saturday afternoon we attended the funeral for the father of one of my classmates.  It was the most beautifully done ceremony out on their family farm.  Very touching.

We ended the late afternoon at my Aunt and Uncle’s house for a few beers and conversation before we ended the evening at J Bruner’s restaurant.   They opened the new location a few months ago and I am SO impressed with how beautiful it is.   Nice work Emily and Joe!

We ended the evening with a road-trip back to Emerson to drop off Troy and Sara (entertainment from the backseat, yo) before Clint and I finally rolled into home around 2:30am.  Sunday I basically slept, watched TV and ventured out only ONCE for new shoes.   Surprisingly the only stop I made in the mall was the shoe store.   I clearly was on a mission to get in, get out and get back in my pj’s. HA

The PERFECT ending to a weekend that was spent exactly how I had hoped to.

Cheers!
