I’ve been meaning to post this for like ever. However, that did not happen. Obvs. Life got in the way. I’m sure everyone is familiar with that. I wanted to share everything that happened with my birthday celebrations! I know, you are probably thinking, “Maria, it’s been forever since that happened…”, but stick with me!
Friday night I had some of the girls over for craft night! We all painted planters and two of us made clay coasters. I will not be sharing that part because they did not turn out so hot! You live and learn. But I’ve been SO excited about the planters. I had the idea when I started my new job and sat in my cubicle. I have a shelf in there that just screamed plants. There are no windows where I am, so, plants were a must. But of course, I needed something that would survive without the sun. Succulents and cacti for the win. I’ll be posting a DIY for the planters here soon. I promise. It was a really fun night. We ordered pizza, had some tunes playing, had some drinky drinks, talked…SO MUCH FUN! Here are some scenes:
Aren’t those some great pictures? It really was such a fun night. I didn’t share any of my pots really since I plan on doing another post. All of the girls did such a wonderful job. Pretty much all of us are artists who will be paid millions one day. One day…
On Saturday I had to take my car in for an oil change. #adultlife. Troy and I then got such after at Panera before heading to Old Navy. Mama needed some new clothes! My sis got me a gift card for there and I really wanted a new outfit to wear for going out. I ended up getting a skirt (or 2) and a top (or 3). Success. Once we got home, I relaxed before taking a shower and getting all pretty. We met my parents for dinner at a Mexican joint. It’s one of my favorite places.
I got a berry mojito and a chicken chimichanga. Doesn’t it all look DELICIOUS?! I could have that everyday. I then would not feel so great, but you know what I mean. After dinner, we came back to our apartment to hang out before heading out for drinks at Razzles. A local watering hole. My friends met up and we sat outside on the second floor patio. I really hate sitting outside, especially when it’s hot and sunny. But this was covered, and it was cool, so it totally was awesome. I had a handful of shots and drank summer shandy. It was perfect.
And those are my friends. I absolutely love this collection of pictures. The next day, I had to delete over 100 pictures thanks to one of my friends who shall not be named. 😉 I had such a blast though.
On Sunday, I woke up tired. Not hungover. Thankfully. I slept pretty much all morning. It was glorious. Then a friend and I went to see Pitch Perfect 2. Anyone see it? I liked it! However, I didn’t recognize some of the songs. I think that means I’m old – that’s what my friend said at least. 🙂 We had popcorn, pop, and candy. No one annoyed me in the theater so that’s always a huge plus. It was a successful movie trip.
That was pretty it for my birthday outings. The rest of that Sunday was spent relaxing and waiting for Game of Thrones. There it is! Now you all can stop wondering what I ended up doing to celebrate. 😉
