Weekend Update! [a birthday, the beach & lots of drinks!]

Friday we went to lunch & I had my first watermelon margarita of the summer! YUM! Then we went & saw Fast & Furious 6... It was sooo good!!

watermelon rita - me & d at sitos - the pretty flower he stole picked for me

Saturday I got up early & went to get my hair done. They took 2.5 inches off, which doesn't sound like a lot but let me tell you.... my hair looks SHORT compared to what it was! & I got blonde highlights.. I'm in the process of becoming blonde again! When I got home, Darren had flowers, a card & a cookie cake waiting for me! :)

my beautiful flowers - the perfect cake - my card (he made a list of "23 reasons why this year will be the best year yet" it was SO PRECIOUS y'all!)

Saturday night we went to dinner at the Melting Pot & then headed to Howl at the Moon to do a little pre-birthday celebrating! The Melting Pot was so yummy.. I'm trying to convince Darren that we need to buy a fondue set at home! & Howl at the Moon was fun like always!!

mmm, cheese! - me & d - the love martini.. delish!

Sunday we went to brunch with my mom at Pappasitos & had some 99cent mimosas... YUM! Then Darren & I headed over to our friends, Shelby & Dustin's place. 

the best 99 cent mimosas - Dustin's super cute dog - our delish BBQ

We packed all of our coolers full of stuff to BBQ & plenty of alcoholic drinks, swimsuits, sunglasses, a kite & much more into the trunk of Shelby's car & headed out to High Island. I LOVED it out there, it was so quiet & peaceful! 

tons & tons of corn - us riding around in a golf cart with Dustin's little sister (it looks like we're on a roller coaster ride lol) - a pretty horsey down the road

After a few hours of trying to get the jet skis to work, we gave up & headed to the beach without them. The water was actually warm & we had SO MUCH FUN! We ended the night with some margaritas, hamburgers & chips & guac! Not a bad birthday if I do say so myself! ;)

more riding on the golf cart - the beach (obvi it's galveston & not somewhere beautiful, ha) - hanging out in high island

Yesterday we did some cleaning & laundry, Darren played tennis & we took a nap. Then we headed over to my mom's house & she BBQ'd. Umm... BBQ two days in a row?? It MUST be summer!!

I got my Texas ring!! - wrinkles being a cutie - SO excited to get the Mia 2! :)

I hope y'all had a great Memorial Day weekend!
