happy birthday to meeeee!

Hey, friends!  Guess what!?  


It's my favorite day of my favorite month!!  Woo!!  I know that not everyone looks forward to their birthdays once they reach a certain age. 

I am not one of those people.
I love every single Facebook post, text, call, etc. I love me some attention.

As most of you already know, I celebrate birthday months.  All of April are belong to me. 
The festivities start April 1st...and this year was no different.  It started with birthday lunch thanks to my good friend, Mo-Jack. 

Sourdough Pile-Up at Plain & Fancy Sandwich Shoppe.

That's my Mo-Jack! :)

Saturday morning was spent cheering on my favorite little softball player.  Go #3!!  Being a first-year softball mom is a pretty awesome birthday gift.  I'm excited.  Plus, my Matti is too much cute. 

So much awesomeness packed into a little 8-year old...and the chick's got the attitude to back it all up.  Love her!!
Saturday was filled with two more softball games.  Miss Matti did such a great job for her first year.  They won their second game and we celebrated afterwards with a slushy! 

I came home after the games to gorgeous flowers from my mister!  What a man.... :)  I was also surprised to get a super awesome gift in the mail from my little sis.  Unikeys!!  I love them!

Saturday night, the mister & I met up with our friends, Jeff & Anitha for some birthday fun at one of our favorite local joints -- Muddy Jake's.  It was a great night full of comedians -- Bob Biggerstaff, Daryl Felsberg and Owen Dunn.

Jeff and Anitha.  Also, Jeff's facial hair -- now known as "The Reverse Unicorn." 

All day today was spent with my mister.  We started with our delicious breakfast at The Red Barn Cafe...a weekend ritual.  Ham & cheese omelet, grits and toast. Yeehaw!

After some shopping, we headed to the theater to check out "Divergent."  Can you say theater to ourselves!?!??  Happy Birthday to me!

The movie was awesome!  I can't wait for the next. We both loved it.  I'm pretty sure I would watch again tonight, if I could.  
Now, I'm just relaxing at home with my man.  That's a happy day all in itself. 

....and that's just week one, folks.  More birthday month awesomeness to come! :)
