Birthday Weekend

Let's start off with Friday, my birthday party day. I got to do my favorite thing in the world with some of my favorite people in the world. KARAOKE! HORRAYYYYY! I can't even describe the amount of awesome that ensued.

I'm not even upset that I dropped my phone getting out of a cab since I found it in near perfect condition the next morning in the middle of the street.

Saturday, I was feeling difficult. But, I got to spend most of the day catching up on my DVR and reflecting on Friday night's awesome. So all in all, not too bad of a day. And, I got to drink coffee out of my brand new Honey Badger mug from my Hetero Life Partner, Kristen. This thing is hilarious. It will never not make me smile.

Mostly because it will remind me that I "just don't care."

Today is Sunday and I am feeling much better. So far I have been able to do some basic human tasks such as grocery shopping and light laundry. I'm even thinking about running a Clorox wipe across my bathroom sink. Maybe.

The day hasn't been all tedium though! Kate and I went for a beautiful hike at Highbanks Metro Park. It's gorgeous:

I adore spring:

Nate Date!

My buddy Nate happened to be in my neighborhood today buying chinchilla food and surprised me with a visit, hoorayyyyyy!

Fun conversation and banana flavored beers were shared. Cheers, Naters!

Happy Birthday, Dad!

Today is my dad's birthday! Happy Birthday, Big Guy! Since I was unable to take his picture, I'm doing what I guess is the next best thing....but really it's just because it happened to happen today:

I got my new license! It's kinda a blurry pic but trust me...I look good in pink. Also, I realize this made no sense.

Moving on.

Because I was at the DMV bright and early this morning, I had time to do a bit of shopping at my work neighborhood Kroger Market Place. In doing so, I picked up these swanky new pillows for the awesomeness that is my couch. Sadly, my couch is much too big (and my apartment too small) to photograph the entire couch in all her glory. SO, we'll have to settle for this corner:

I really think the cherry blossoms add some much needed pizzazz.

Witness my fitness.

Ahhh! Look at all my fun, new fitness toys!

From left to right we have: an air pump for my bike tires (never again will I be foiled by flat tires!), a squeaky clean orange iPod shuffle (I can finally stop lugging that giant iPod touch around), and a heart rate monitor (so I can stop trying to make my heart explode with every fitness attempt). Not pictured: A new bike rack to save me from having to stuff the bike in the back of a Jeep Liberty. Now all I need is it to stop raining. Or a kayak. A kayak would be nice.

Also, I love when my food is cute:

Today's win: FITNESS.

For my first trick, I mean post:

Today some gorgeous ladies and I went to see Chick Flick de Jour, Bridesmaids!!

Of course the happy hour fixins' were flowing with this group. My milk bottle of wine and pesto shrimp pizza from Marcella's was, as they say accross the Tyrrhenian, molto bene!

The movie is cute. I chucked several times and even let out my limited release, you know it's really funny, "HA! hahahaaa" twice. Answer to The Hangover it is not, but it's hard for me to be mad at any movie that rocks out with Wilson Phillips.
