I already shared the little things I did to treat myself during birthday month, and other than that, it was definitely a more low key month than January.
I went out to dinner with my girlfriends for an early birthday celebration.
I 'helped' my bestie out with another wedding show - I say 'helped' because all I do is stand around, eat food and tell people how amazing she is. I don't even need to say anything, because it's clearly evident in the amazing hairstyles she does on me for these shows. Check out her website here, facebook here and instagram here.
We weren't planning to do anything for the superbowl, but we ended up having a couple of people over, kind of last minute. We served super awesome and pinterest worthy food: pizza.
Cake, obviously. Asked a girl at work to take a photo for me and I was like.. no, not like that.. here, let me show you. Ha.
KC and I went to Olive Garden on my birthday.. I was planning on chinese but I had that for lunch.. and chinese twice in one day is a bit much for even me.
I had planned on making KC see Pride & Prejudice and Zombies with me, but then my friend volunteered as tribute, so that was fun. So KC and I saw Deadpool, which was actually pretty funny. We also saw The Witch, which was weird, and not very scary (from someone who is terrified of Gremlins). KC liked it though. It was more disturbing and creepy than jump out and kill you scary. We saw more movies this past month than we did the whole of last year, I reckon.
Got my hair done - further proof that my bestie is a magician.
Went to an Indian restaurant with my mother in law, brother in law and KC for my birthday - I love butter chicken so much. I could bathe in that sauce, or at least eat it every day.
I got my 3rd stitch fix and kept the chevron dress. The polka dot dress looked cute in pictures but not in real life.. plus it was $140.
KC and I continued to work out together on Saturdays - I squatted 105 lbs which is amazing to me. Working out on my own, I could only lift 50lbs, max. I was always too afraid of the fancy squat racks, ha! Meanwhile, KC is up to like 400lbs.
I also ran with my bestie a few times inside and finally last weekend it was warm enough, not raining or snowing, and we were able to run outside. I enjoy running with her regardless, but we certainly run more than walk when we are outside vs on the treadmill.
In adventures of Sunday Night Cooking... Stuffed chicken & beef and broccoli.
My mother in law got me a gift certificate for a facial and pedicure, so I went and had a pampering day with her. It was fun, though I don't know if it is something I would do regularly (aka pay for myself).
and a few other random photos that have no purpose or story but deserve to be shared .... but mainly cats.
Anyway, I know a lot of these are repeats from my birthday treat yoself post, but it was a good birthday month and deserves to be documented (twice). I really like these monthly recaps for myself, because I don't do weekend recaps or anything and I found that last year I really had no memories up on the blog (except for travel) so this is a great way for me to record and share those things.
Once again, thank you to everyone who linked up with Gretch and I last month, and we hope you can join us again this month! Please note we only ask one thing of you, and that is to link back to us.
