Birthday Week

I can't believe I am 27. It is weird getting older, but not feeling old. I had a great birthday. Everyone knows how birthdays are a big deal to me and with help of Mike and some great friends the day was awesome.
The whole week was a celebration. Mike's parents and Tim came down to Houston on Saturday and spent the day with us. Monday, my good friends took Kate to the park, made cupcakes and gave me a pedicure. It was heavenly. That evening Mike surprised me by saying I could get this entertainment center from Pottery Barn that I have been dying for (I have had the picture posted on our fridge for 6 months). He also brought home a yummy ice cream cake and took me to dinner. It was a really great day. Then on Tuesday a couple friends took me to dinner. it was so much fun catching up and talking all night long! Thursday afternoon my parents came into town. They haven't been here for a long time and we were so excited! We had a jam packed weekend of fun. I wish they could have stayed longer.!

The weather was perfect this weekend, my dad even complained about being cold a few times!!!
Once a year there is a thing called the Azalea Trail. It was awesome, you get to walk through 6 different houses and backyards of these houses in a area called River Oaks. It is seriously posh neighborhood. It was amazing!
Wouldn't this backyard be amazing for a wedding reception!


I loved this little outdoor sitting area. It felt so Southern Living

Friday we hit the Houston Rodeos carnival and petting zoo. Kate loved it. She was seriously spoiled with attention all weekend.





Kate was so excited to ride the elephants and as soon as she got on the ride she started crying and cried pretty much the whole time. I guess she is not quite ready for Disneyland.

Very sanitary hugging some goat.




Kate was so happy around all the animals, I usually can't get her to smile in pictures and she pretty much had a smile on her face the whole time.

Thursday we went to the zoo and feed the ducks/pigeons







We also went to a baseball game, ran a 5k and ate a lot of yummy food (surprise, surprise) We had so much fun. Thanks for a great weekend Mom and Dad!
