birthday highlights

 I drove down to my parents' house to meet my mom, sister, brother, and nephew for a birthday lunch. Every time I arrive at their house I am greeted by this little guy losing his mind with happiness that I am there. I love my Milo! <3

 My mom is the best! She baked me ice cream cone cupcakes!

 I'm about to blow out the candle...that's why I'm making the weird face.

 My sister was holding Milo before we left for lunch, and he tucked his little paws into the crook of her arm. So freaking cute!

 At lunch my nephew discovered a fun game: feed Auntie saltines!

 After lunch, I headed back to the apartment where M was waiting to take me for a birthday treat! My favorite seasonal ice cream stand had my favorite flavor of frozen yogurt for my birthday week! I present to you my birthday pistachio frozen yogurt waffle cone bowl. It was amazing.

After finishing dessert, it was time for dinner. We picked up my bestie Kelly and headed to Dinosaur BBQ!

 We can never take a serious, nice picture.

After dinner we headed over to another friend's house for a quick stop and were greeted with baby boots of beer.

I don't know what the weird face is for...
But after this we headed to my favorite dive bar where I got to see some great friends!

On the way home from the dive bar, M stopped at the super market and surprised me with an ice cream cake full of candles!
