Birthday Weekend

I’m one year older and three pounds heavier. ;)

I woke up to a porch full of goodies, decorated with balloons and happy birthday flags. :) Sweet Mama and sister spoil me!

I knew the carbs of the day would overwhelm me, so I hit up the elliptical first thing. The gym was EMPTY. Happy birthday to me. ;)

After that, I started the day with breakfast at Katie’s with my best friend and her roommate!

bday03

We feasted. I didn’t even think about taking a picture of those pancakes until they were gone.

bday04

Let’s agree that crispy hashbrowns and bacon are the best hashbrowns and bacon.

After breakfast, I came home and snuggled and napped with this mister.

And when Andrew got off work, he brought me these beauties. :) He also got me a Forever 21 gift card and a stylus for my iPad, because he knows me well. ;)

Then we were off to the zoo!

We started with the sea lion show.

Sea lions are the sassiest things, and I’m obsessed.

I wanted to curl up and snuggle with this precious baby.

And for lunch, I had my beloved french fries. ;)

bday15

We headed home to recuperate from the zoo, then headed out for dinner at Hideaway a little bit later.

Hubs looks so important in his glasses. ;)

This is the face of a girl who had been separated from pizza for far too long.

In the words of Nicolas Cage in National Treasure…”Hello, beautiful.” Lolzzz.

The last of my carb fest Friday was a Peanut Butter Cup Perfection from Coldstone. I couldn’t even finish it…but every bite was delicious. ;)

To end the day, we watched my new fave…Skyfall. :)

bday21

And Saturday morning, Mama took me horseback-riding!

bday22

I rode Dixie. She’s my fave.

bday24

Mom and I totally had pizza for lunch. And Hubs and I hit up Olive Garden that night for dinner…because once Caitlin gets going on a carb binge, it’s hard to stop. Mom and Dad took us out to Longhorn yesterday after church, but I’m back on my diet for a few days to get back on track. We’re having a get-together with my family this weekend to celebrate with cookie cake, because no birthday would be complete without it! Mom-in-law is taking me shopping this morning, and next Sunday we’re hitting up Laser Tag with some friends. Apparently, this is the birthday that never ends. ;)

Hope you all had a lovely weekend full of good food and good naps. :)
