Birthday recap + Random updates

I hate that I didn't get my Sunday post up yesterday. I promise I will be better about it going forward. Another thing I hate? That I take forever to respond to e-mails. Please forgive me! I will be responding to them very soon.

But enough of that, can we please talk about the fact that I enjoyed a 4 day (birthday) weekend? It was supreme in more ways than one. Here's a little rundown about what all I did:
  • Went to the movies. We saw Non-Stop with Liam!
  • Went out to eat (a lot!). I swear I gained 20 lbs.
  • Hung out with my bestie/pledge sister, Brittany!
  • Decided that 27 isn't so bad.
  • Spent time with my family.
  • Pulled weeds. I got to the root of the problem. And a nice little workout too.
I feel insanely blessed. God is just so good, even when I don't get things "my way." I hope everyone finds little blessing in their life that they can be thankful for! P.S. I am so thankful for the birthday love everyone has shown on my blog!

On another note, I am totally gearing up for Fourth of July. Yes yes... I know it's still several months away. But my heart couldn't be anymore excited. Especially since I continually find red, white, and blue goodies. Exhibit A:
I mean... I just can't!
And while I'm on the random train, I figured I should also note that the semester is halfway over. Praise God! In December, I will have my Master's degree under my belt. In the meantime, this semester I'm in a budget class that is killing me. Part of the project requires that I create a start-up office, with every single budget item out there - even small things like paperclips. So as you can imagine, that's taking quite a bit of my time! But I promise to balance school, life, family, friends, and blogging because it's what makes me happy!

Enough rambling for me. What'd you do this weekend? Who is ready for the spring weather?! Hip hip, hoorah. Oh and don't forget to pinch someone who isn't wearing green today. You know I am.

  8. I filled my weekend with a little too much food as well! Chinese food to be exact. Oh, and movie theatre popcorn. I also pulled weeds yesterday after a 12 mile run so I spent the rest of the day doing nothing! I'm liking the 4th decor and looking forward to my first 4th in Texas!
