My Birthday Celebration Part Dos, Party Planning, C25K

Thanks you guys!! I was SO appreciative of my great family and friends - they definitely made my birthday so special - those sweeties! :) Sorry I've been MIA since Wednesday - EEK - here's what I've been up to... :)

Thursday I just worked, did laundry and cooked! Had a very chill day with Austin, watched some bad TV and hung out! I ended up at 1,445 calories, 175 carbs, 46 fat grams and 83 protein grams. Here’s what I ate. I wasn’t very hungry – probably because I had such a big dinner the night before!

Friday I had to shoot a video for work from 8 – 1, then I hit the gym for 3.5 miles and worked some more! Then after work me and Stacy ran – I did another 25-minute run! I walked 3 miles, ran for 25 minutes, then walked 2 more for 30 minutes/3 miles! Then I headed home, got ready and me and Austin were off to Frontpage News to celebrate my birthday with friends! Unfortunately, it had started raining – hard – so we didn’t get to sit outside, but we still had a great time chatting, dancing to the fun band and having a few drinkies! Here's some pics!

Group shot

Ladies!

Ruje & Jay - cute candid!

Ze boys - notice they're clothes are wet while the girls are not - such gentlemen!

Lauren & Zach came late night - so good to see them!

Austin & Zach are even wearing Auburn colors! LOL

Of course we had to dance a bit

And I made sure to get a pic of me and Austin this time! (i'm bad about that)

Katie brought the crystal lights - really makes vodka water taste FABULOUS!

Ruje got me the coolest outdoor stuff! And a dora card - this is my dora expression!

Loved it!

Silly!

Mary T, Me and Stacy!


Lauren, Katie and Jackie broke it down with the band! LOL

I have no idea why Austin & Zach did this (note - I did not take 50% of these pictures so I got lots of surprises when I downloaded - fun!)

Austin & Cush!

Someone got candids of me and Austin - I think Ruje?!

Austin caught on - I did not. LOL


And so was the end of our night!! I had SUCH a great time and was so glad to have some awesome peeps to celebrate with! I ended up at 2,142 calories, 181 carbs, 45 fat grams and 79 protein grams. Here’s what I ate.

Saturday I woke up with SO much energy! I cleaned out closets, measured windows, did the dishes, made a grocery list, showered and got my stuff together for a party planning session at Stacy’s! Me and Austin headed out, got stamps, mailed out his birthday invites, got Starbucks, hit up the library and went to midtown to pick up his car, then I headed over to Stacy’s to meet her and Devon to work on Stacy’s wedding, Austin’s birthday party and Devon’s housewarming party – SO fun! We had a great day planning and before we knew it it was 8:30! I headed home to Season 6 of 24 with Austin and Reuben, and a pizza. Lovely evening!! I ended up at 1,545 calories, 195 carbs, 56 fat grams and 71 protein grams. Here’s what I ate.

Today I’m just getting more stuff done! Tackling my closet, the attic, cooking – and hopefully later some gym and printing/framing of photos – we’ll see! Also plan to catch up on your bloggies - yay!

Did you celebrate anything this weekend? Just my birthday for us – wonderful time!

Have you ever had a party planning sessions with friends? I really enjoyed that – definitely want to do another! I felt so productive and positive – nice to not do it alone, too!

I've never really thrown a party with another friend. It either is all on me or I'm planning something like a wedding shower with someone I don't know all that well. I hate planning parties and it would be nice to have help and do it with someone I get along with.

Glad you had a great birthday weekend! Have you ever been to Tijuana Garage next to Front Page News? My sister works there.

Looks like a fun birthday. I like Front Page News.

I am awful at party planning. Planning my wedding was pretty much my nightmare!

You always look so happy!! Love it!! Glad you had a great time and too cute that yall brought the little crystal light packets along!! ;)

I am so not a good party planner. I always worry if everyone will like everything I pick out from the time, place, food, etc!

Looks like a great birthday all around. Love your smile! :D

laura dishes said...

BYO crystal light packets... such a great idea!

The last time I had party planning sessions w/ friends was when I was in charge of sorority recruitment... that pretty much scared me away from party planning for life!

Tyler said...

I forgot about the good ole Crystal Light trick! You save SO many calories doing that! I've decided that we need to live closer together because I think we would be the best, sassiest, friends! We can work on that.

Love the candids of you and Austin. So cute!

I think I should have been an event planner instead of a desk worker. Lol -- my type A personality means I looooooove to plan things. I really want some of my friends to get engaged so I can plan and throw parties. Sigh!

Glad you had a good weekend. :)

Mica said...

Girl, you are way cuter than Dora and her bug-eyes. Also, your hair is way shinier!

Gabriela said...

Crystal Light is the best mixer ever because you can add it until you can't taste the liquor anymore! Very good, also very dangerous though :) This weekend I celebrated LIFE and SUMMER. I can't get enough of this warm weather!

Pam said...

Happy, happy b-day! It looks like you had a fantastic time.
