birthday re-cap + a moment of true happiness

I had a wonderful weekend. A birthday weekend at that.
I like to call it perfection.
Thank you ALL for all the birthday wishes. They made me that much
happier as I was receiving them throughout the day.
I feel very special.

Friday night, we went to celebrate a birthday for a hometown friend, Michael
out at one of the hunting clubs located up the road. Aaron and I both enjoyed seeing
faces we don't get to see much including one of my favorites, Caitlin from a country nest. It was a great night - so great we arrived home at 2am.

Saturday evening, we had a birthday cookout out by the pool.
Besides the heat index of 102, it was the best evening spent with our wonderful friends & a handful of family members. Aaron & our good friend, Jon spent that morning recovering grocery shopping for  a low country boil, my favorite.  We had about {guessing} 40 people come over, again it was so wonderful. It took me all of 10 minutes of being outside before I was in the pool. It was craZy hot. I am ALL for the AC and not a big fan of sweating. Sadly, I did not take many pictures because well... I was enjoying myself that much and never thought of it until the very end of the night. And by that point I had drinken a little too much wine && the few I just captured, somehow deleted. I'm still confused about it.  It was 4am before we hit the pillow this night. Whoa, it's been a while since we've done that.

Sunday, we had a big day planned however I wasn't moving to fast && had a slight hangover from wine. Which incase you have never had one its awful.
We were supposed to be going to a park downtown Savannah for lunch & to spend the day, instead we had a late lunch at Jalapenos {which was really good}

I had to take some kind of picture to capture my 27th birthday...
even when I felt like poo.

Later I received a gift from my in-laws in which I've been wanting for SO long
now. Shutters for our house. It's been on our waiting list for quite some time &&
since the Easter Bunny did not bring them I was super happy to see these.

The hubby & I then went home ... && crashed for a little bit.
We were so exhausted && needing more than one hour of nap time but
unfortunately we had a visitation to attend that evening.

My BIL & Sister invited us over for steaks after the visitation
in which was really nice. We enjoyed it very much.

27th BIRTHDAY = marking something off my bucket list.

Yesterday, I laughed until I cried.
It was pure awesomeness.

My niece Emily {2.5 years old} performed for me && then on several accounts performed
for ALL of us.  It was so awesome & filled this heart of mine with so much happiness & laughter. What's not better than that?

{please excuse the coloring of the video.
I've yet to figure out how to manage that on YOUTUBE - it was not recorded like this. }

Is that not awesome? May I say that she has never taken any type of
dance lessons. She's a fan of "So You Think You Can Dance" & also watches her
two sisters dance all the time.

We ended the night with adult conversation while the kids were
wild && dancing all over the place.

Chloe & myself.

Punkle Aaron & Emily {love this photo}

&& before we left that night I was receiving all sorts of calls & text messages
about our whether back home. Apparently we missed a small hurricane, thank goodness -
but when we did arrive at the house there were trees everywhere && half of our chimney was detached from our home. Wow!
Oh & no power.

It was a wondeful 27th birthday.
Cheers to another year!
