i heart a birthday celebration

Well, that was amazingly exciting weekend.

The birthday week has ceased and what a kick ass week it was as all the celebrating is complete.

Knowing Saturday was going to get bat shit crazy (and it did), Alexa, Jenn and I decided to stay in and avoid snowmaggdeon by eating Noodlecat, drinking champagne and devouring not one but splitting three ridiculous decadent sundaes from Sweet Moses.

We owned these sundaes.
We thought it would be a great idea to watch a movie, so we rented "The Ides of March" but Alexa and I passed out incredibly quick and I slept over because we were too lazy to move cars - adult sleepover!!! The next morning we continued our relaxing day with brunch at Latitude 41 where we laughed, picked guys who Jenn and I should consider dating and discussed other important topics over coffee.

best brunch ever
Saturday night I gathered a group of friends from work, high school, college and social media peeps and we drank and partied the night away at Market Garden Brewery. Apparently, everyone thought it was my 21st birthday, not my 29th, because several friends thought it would be a GREAT idea to start buying shots for me.

Sidenote: I can't drink like I used to. Not even close. A few drinks and I'm done for it - if I were to take on a bottle of vodka, chances are I'd lose. Very badly. And, I lost to the shots too.

Apparently Sean was sleepy, Charity and Ben
Alexa, me and Ahmed - photobomber
And, two friends thought it would be a great idea to scope out the scene for guys and capture as many numbers as they could for me by letting every guy know it was my birthday. I would like to apologize to the bartender who put up with my talkative friends, incessantly asking for his number and giving mine out.

I finished out the weekend with most of it spent in bed on Sunday, then on the couch and then my weekend roommate Danielle and I were functioning by mid afternoon to take ourselves out of my apartment to grab dinner at Tremont Taphouse for some macaroni and cheese and burgers.

We killed it.
A big thank you to everyone who came out on Saturday night, sent a birthday tweet, gave me a sparkly birthday card and made this a fabulous weeklong birthday celebration for me. And, I apologize in advance if I didn't say goodbye to everyone because I KNOW I didn't. I'm pretty sure of that as I recall what happened that night.

most hilarious and appropriate group of cards
