I had a wonderful weekend filled with birthday shenanigans. It went by way too fast - as always.

To get my birthday weekend started off right, my husband brought me home cronuts. We were never able to try them in New York {after standing in line for 45 minutes}. He was able to get these from Peterson's in Escondido. I couldn't finish the whole thing but it was so good!

We went to see Deadpool on Friday night with Stephen's best friend and his wife. I actually really enjoyed it. It was very funny. Stephen says it's his all time favorite superhero movie now. And fun fact - me, Stephen and Scotty all have a birthdays in the same week!

Woke up Saturday morning to a free drink from Starbucks. It was only good for three days so I had to use it quickly. I want to add that I also received a free drink from Dunkin' Donuts, which is good for three months. I may have to start being more loyal to Dunkin'. They seem to be more loyal to their customers.

Whenever I have a free drink, I take advantage and get my all time favorite drink - Iced Caramel Macchiato with a whole lotta modifiers.

Stephen and I spent most of Saturday in Orange County. We went to South Coast Plaza, although we didn't find much. It's a very uppity mall so everything was super expensive. It was nice to get out and walk around though.

We tried Newport Rib Company for lunch. I had a Front Porch Lemonade, tri-tip, fries and macaroni & cheese. The food was okay. The fries were my favorite part. But the drink was amazing. After lunch we headed home. I was exhausted. I ended up taking a nap when we got home. I started feeling sick again too. I think I felt better so I allowed my body to do too much too soon. I spent the rest of the day on the couch and went to bed super early on Saturday night.

Sunday was my birthday. My parents had some family over for breakfast. We had French toast, Hungarian pancakes {very similar to a crepe}, bacon and mimosas. Everything was extremely delicious.

My brother and sister-in-law face timed us to sing happy birthday to me.


My cousin and I were both in navy, which was incredibly funny to us because our mom's used to dress us as twins a lot when we were little. We were twins and we didn't even plan it.

My mom got us two mini bundt cakes to share between all of us. This was smart of her because we had already had so many sweets. We each had a few bites and it was perfect. I still wasn't feeling like myself so after breakfast my husband and I ran to Target for a few things, grabbed a late lunch/early dinner and went home to rest. I spent the remainder of my birthday on the couch and I took a nap again.

I requested yesterday off to have a me day. I was originally planning on shopping and pampering myself but because I've been sick, I ended up just doing things around the house that needed to get done. I'm still coughing and I still don't feel 100% better. I figured the cough would linger for a while. Can't wait to kick this thing for good. I came back to work today to a decorated office, which was so nice of my co-workers.
