All good things must come to an end...

And to be honest sometimes I'm glad when those things come to an end!

My birthday was great...but very very busy. Anyone that knows me, knows that I'm a homebody and I do not do well with chaos and having to be on the go all the time.

Friday (my actual birthday) I had a little bit of time to myself in the morning to relax while my mom and the boy ran some errands...then the three of us went for lunch...immediately after that I got my 'hair did'. I decided not to do anything drastic and kept the length (she trimmed it a little) but also had her put in a few more layers. I haven't quite figured out how to style it best but once I do you'll likely see some pics. Oh and the boy got his haircut too...I'll definitely have to share pics of his new 'do' because it is sooooooooo short now! It only took a little bit of bribery (I find pokemon cards work best). Now I'm getting sidetracked...back to my birthday lol...after our hair appts. we had some shopping to do and since we were at the mall and the boyfriend had lost my cell phone about a month ago I went in to find a new one...and in the end gave myself a little birthday present...I got a blackberry!!! And I have to say I love love love it. After that we headed over to my uncle's house for a BBQ and some fabulous cheesecake and a strawberry shortcake. The evening was spent with the boyfriend and another couple (my best friend P and her hubby)...we drank and drank and drank...think $100 worth drank (and that was just me and the boyfriend)...

So as you can imagine the next day I was not in very fine form lol. We had plans to be up early and meet my aunt and grandfather for breakfast (when my mom is in town we see alot of my family!)...and then it was off to a local thrift store...where I scored a really cute jean skirt and about 15 chapter books for the boy...all at 0.25 a piece! woot woot. The rest of the day was a bit more mellow...I did some yardwork with the boyfriend and then we barbequed steak.

Sunday, we had dinner with the boyfriend's mom and I was given another whole cake...this time black forest...what in the world will I do with all of that damn cake in my house??? It's so not helping with my diet and exercise plan!!!!

All in all it was a great birthday weekend...I felt so loved and so spoiled by everyone in my life. Quite honestly I couldn't have asked for a better birthday weekend!

Freeze the cake! Cut it up into manageable portions (a 3 or 4 slice chunk) - wrap it in plastic wrap and then heavy duty foil. Or, like me, just eat it! :)

Glad you had a wonderful weekend!
