Hello all my beautiful people.

♥ ♥ ♥

I hope everyone had a great weekend.

Mine was beyond epic. So what a better time to celebrate with the most beautiful preggo blogger around Katie. We like to be Marvelous in our Mondays.  So let’s take a look at what made my weekend so epic.

First things first, my birthday was Friday, and as I get older not only are birthday’s just not as big of a deal, but the fact that I’m one year closer to 30 (ah next year) isn’t something I look forward too. But also the older I get, the more I realize it’s not how old you are, but how you feel and how you live. And trust me, I do not feel or live like I am 29. So I’m ok with being a year older.

Not only am I ok with aging, but I had an amazing birthday. Celebrating with good friends and the one I love make turning any age no big deal. And that’s exactly what I did this year.

So hang on kids, because a lot of fun was had.

We start with Thursday night. Matt and I had plans to go out of town for my actual birthday, but he also put together a little dinner for me with friends on Thursday night. Having a birthday so close to Christmas kind of makes it hard to have a celebration as a lot of people are still out of town, but we had a nice little group that I had an amazing time with.

Matt surprised me with the location, but shocker, he knew I would love our new favorite sushi restaurant.

Seriously, with me, sushi is a no brainer and always a win.

My wonderful company.

A few of the girls from my class had never had sushi before, but came anyways and were champs about trying a bunch of new things.

And trust me there was plenty to try!

I don’t think that’s even one-third of what we ordered.

And it was Kelly’s first time ever having sushi, but at a birthday girl’s request, she tried a piece. Love her!

As you can see plenty of shenanigans went down.

And the shenanigans continued at our place with a few of the girls.

We stopped at the store to pick up a few more adult beverages, and when my eyes landed on this beauty, I could not pass it up.

Seriously? Chocolate, Peanut Butter and Banana Beer?? Yes please.

Rogue never lets me down.

Neither does Eddie Izzard. Which is what I made everyone watch. Seriously if you have not seen his stand up Dress To Kill, I highly recommend it. It’s on Netflix instant watch. Go watch it. Now.

This is only part one of my amazing birthday, but I think my Tucson weekend deserves a post of it’s own.

Here’s a little food teaser of what happened though.

If that doesn’t make you want to come back to read about it, I don’t know what will.

Yes my birthday was that amazing!

Reminder: Don’t forget there is still time to enter my Arctic Zero giveaway.

How do you celebrate your birthday?

Do you care about getting older, or is it about how you feel?
