Big weekend! Not only did OU win, but I turned 28. Yup, it was my birthday weekend.
My dear friend KC had me over for dinner. I love when KC cooks me dinner. A) A great cook and I always love the things KC prepares. B) Not offended when I show up sweaty from my aerobics classes. C) Sends me home with leftovers. See, an all around great evening when KC cooks!
After dinner I decided to go home and watch a movie. This particular Friday night, I decided to have Colin Farrell and Samuel L. Jackson keep me company. The duo is in S.W.A.T, which I haven’t seen in a million years. I think it’s one of Colin’s better movies.
Most of Saturday was pretty uneventful. I watched lots of basketball and cooked a few meals to freeze. Recently, I discovered freezing premade meals. Last year I lived on Lean Cuisines. After a full year of LC, I’m sick of them. I cannot stand the thought of eating one for dinner. So this year I’ve been eating small frozen meals that I’ve precooked. Yes, I realize it sounds like I’m 80 years old, but I’m hungry at night and a sandwich just doesn’t cut it!
Saturday night was my birthday party. We dined at Buffalo Wild Wings, classy if you ask me, and I watched more basketball! It was a fun evening. When the games were over a smaller group and I headed to a local bar/restaurant to watch drunk people karaoke. It was pure comedy. My favorite was a guy who sang Jingle Bells.
My family celebrated my birth. My mom cooked lunch and Sister #2 baked my cake. Last year I had an awesome Easter Bunny cake, because my birthday fell on Easter. This year I received a strawberry cake. The whole meal was great! And the fam bought me great presents. Sister #1 bought me Tupperware, I was way pumped. Shut up, don’t laugh! Sister #2 bought me my favorite Jam and BBQ Sauce, and the parentals gave me money. You can never go wrong with money.
The highlight of the day, besides the food and presents, was running 8.5 miles. BOOOH YEA! I’m almost all trained for the half marathon. All around, it was a swell birthday weekend.
