Week in Review

My birthday week was busy!

I thought I would show you a little of what I've been up to!

So, not this past Friday but the Friday before we went down to a local homeless shelter and served dinner and held church service for the guys there. It was an awesome opportunity to see how blessed I really am and to be able to give back a little bit. Afterwards, my roommate Wendi and I hosted a little Harvest Party at our house!

We had a pumpkin carving contest.

Everyone voted anonymously and the winner(s) got their favorite meal cooked and served by us! I know everyone was hoping for a flat screen television, but I'm not Donald Trump. I don't even work for DT.

This is the winning pumpkin done by my friends Jason, Eric and Steve.
He's a little intense, no? They named him "Gourdan Gekko" and I regret to inform everyone that Mr. Gekko was met with an untimely death at the hands of our trash man yesterday morning.
This is my friend Melissa and I at the party. I originally had a much cuter shirt on, but it got pumpkin all over it.

The next week following the Harvest Party I actually had three days off of work leading up to my birthday and I planned to enjoy them!

Tuesday night W, Melissa and Lindsay went to Ciao Bella and these are our happy/food comatose faces afterwards.

Wednesday night Lindsay & W took me out for my birthday. We went to Mollie Fontaine's and it was ah-mazing. AMAZING.

I got the Key Lime martini and it was the best martini I've ever had!
If you go there, you must try it and the macaroni and cheese!

Afterwards, we were scheduled to go to the Peabody for drinks, but apparently there were other plans of which I wasn't aware. Until I had "Wicked" tickets set in front of me! I had wanted to go so badly and Lindsay and W surprised me with tickets!

I was BEYOND excited! The show was incredible! I will see it every single time it comes to Memphis from now on!

After the show we did go to the Peabody.


Thursday morning - my actual birthday - I wouldn't do anything else until I did this:
W and I got in line an hour before the polls opened and it was a good thing, too because there was a line wrapped around the place at 10am.

Afterwards I went shopping and had lunch with my mom and then family dinner that night.
Ida Claire was tired from all the celebrating she was doing.

I had such an amazing birthday and I'm so thankful and excited for the next year of my life! I know it's going to be amazing!
