Birthday Weekend

Saturday was my 29th birthday, and I made sure to celebrate all weekend long :)

Friday night we had a cook out at our house, which actually wasn't related at all to my just ended up being one of the only nights we had free this summer to do it. We had about 20 people over and we ate, drank, played games, and hung out until late. It was a perfect night.

Since we were up late, Kevin and I slept in on Saturday, which was a great way to start my birthday. Then we headed to the Muskegon area for the day. I had planned on going to the beach, but it didn't really warm up until ate afternoon, and it was a little cloudy, so I just laid out on my parents' deck and soaked up the sun there. My mom made me my favorite meal for dinner (her homemade sloppy joes and macaroni & cheese). She also made me mini carrot cake cheesecakes for dessert, because carrot cake is my favorite. My mom is the best!

A few family members came over to hang out and celebrate and we ended up having a bon fire at my parents before we headed home.

Kevin and I went to lunch on Sunday to one of our favorite places in Grand Rapids: Houlihan's. Then we went and saw Secret Life of Pets. We were both disappointed in the movie. We thought it was going to be funnier than it was. It was ok, but not great. I was just happy to have a date day with my husband :)

Another great birthday in the books. Now I have a year to prepare myself for turning the big 3-0!


  1. Fun! Happy birthday! I love those little mini cheesecakes - what a sweet dessert!
