A Picture is Worth a 1,000 Words

Thanks for all the Birthday wishes! Rather than writing about every fun detail, here’s a Birthday Recap…a Picture Story, if you will. After all, a picture is worth a 1,000 words right?

It all began Friday night...at the Hard Rock 🙂

Margaritas make for Happy Girls

AWESOME Band at the Hard Rock…now where’s that 2nd Margarita?

Thereee she is!

“It’s my Party and I’ll Cry EAT what I want to, eat what I want to.”

Nachos with all the Fixin's! WAITER: "Some Dessert?" ME: "Oh NO, we still want Dinner".

10 oz. of Juicy Goodness, topped with GUAC, onions, & Chipotle Puree - Hence its name, The S.O.B. Burger!

This is where FOOD COMA set in, so let’s fast forward to Saturday. A FULL DAY at the MALL. Stephen’s such a trooper 🙂 Let me clarify, this is a 7 story Mall with dozens of restaurants, bars, spas, shops, bowling ally, and movie theater…so how could we not spend the whole day there? 🙂

We spent the morning on the 4th floor at the bookstore, where I treated myself to MAGAZINES. Happy Birthday to me.

Through our shopping, we attended the store opening of Dorothy Perkins.

We enjoyed an afternoon movie, and had the Sweet & Salty Popcorn Combo...YUM!

I ❤ my oh so SPARKLY Earrings from Stephen ~ Honestly I would have been happy with just my Magazines...but this definitely put a smile on my face 🙂

I kept it simple with a black top & dark jeans...& let the earrings do all the talkin'. 🙂

As if everything up until this point wasn’t enough already, you can only imagine how excited I was to find a package from home sitting by our door! I felt like a little kid at Christmas tearing into this…thanks Mom, Dad, Sarah, Katrina & Granny! You made my day 🙂

It’s been a tradition in my family to have a home-cooked meal on our birthday. My Dad makes THE BEST Meatballs, & every year I request them for my Birthday dinner.

Not only do I miss you, I miss my home-cooked Birthday Dinner! 🙂

So while they weren’t my Dad’s recipe, we made a pretty tasty bowl of sweet & savory meatballs for dinner.

Garlic, Onions, Chili sauce & Strawberry Jam gave these Meatballs a sweet & spicy bite!

Home-made Chocolate Truffles

For dessert, we made Home-made Chocolate Truffles, dipped in chopped cashews, sprinkles, & peanut M&M’s. I’ve gotta say I’m pretty proud of our Home-made Truffles (after several attempts!)…we were a bit skeptical, but they turned out amaaazing! May have been our fourth go round 🙂

After a great birthday weekend, it’s back to the Daily Grind!
