Thanks to everyone for birthday wishes and celebrating with me this weekend! I had a great time and was happy to hear from/see friends that I haven't heard from/seen in awhile. Major thanks to Christine, of course, for spoiling me as always with lots of ice cream cake and peanut butter M&Ms :) On Friday we went to the Astros vs Texans game using the All You Can Eat promotion. Our tickets were in the Mezzanine section and included all you can eat hot dogs, nachos, popcorn, peanuts, and coca-cola products. Even though the Astros lost, Hunter Pence did make it interesting in the final innings with some good hits. (Yankees beat the Mets that night, Happy Birthday to me!!!) Here's the group on Friday night:

And fireworks, woohoo!

And some goofy pics after the game:

On Saturday I had soccer (blazing hot 1030-1200 soccer). We lost but we had already made playoffs so I'm not too terribly upset. Chances are we will see the Scrubs again in playoffs or definitely next season. I then napped out from exhaustion. We went to Sushi Coast for dinner where we made such a huge scene singing happy birthday that the owner gave us 2 free desserts. I picked the Peanut Butter Mona Lisa and the Tempura Fried Oreos (calories don't count on your birthday right?). They were delicious!!! I prefer the peanut butter but both were delicious especially mixed with the Carvel ice cream cake Christine got me. We ended the night at Brixx on Washington Ave and lots of shots. Thanks all for celebrating! Here I am blowing out my cake and apparently praying while I make my 25th birthday wish:

Evan Turns 1!

My friends Amy and Brian had a birthday party for their little nugget, Evan this weekend. He's already 1 year old! So crazy! There was lots of delicious bbq and munchies and even a bouncy castle that the adults seemed to thoroughly enjoy. Since it's World Cup time I got Evan a USA World Cup skills ball (basically a really small soccer ball) and some cones for when he's up and running and needs to practice his mad football skills. Here are some pics from the party:
Mucho pressies:

The amazing cake a friend of the family made:

Oh, and as a bonus, Amy just announced that she is pregnant again! So excited, congratulations Crisps!

Memorial Day

Whoopsies, I took a rather large break from blogging during my move. Now that things have settled down a bit, I am happy to report that all of my things (and Christine's) are in the new apartment. Minor setbacks: DirecTV claims my apartment faces the wrong way for their service even though my near neighbors have dishes; didn't have a microwave or stove top for the first weekend because the apartment peeps forgot to finish setting up my apartment; no Internet. Luckily, after moving in, we had loads of fun for Memorial Day weekend. Our friend Brian had a Memorial Day/ Mike's Going Away/ Danny and RV's Birthday Crawfish Boil. It was quite the celebration. Christine bought balloons for all the events and Brian made sure his house was red, white, and blue ready. I made dark chocolate cream cheese cupcakes (at Mike's request) and Oreo chunk chocolate chip cookies and enjoyed lots of crawfish! Here are some photos from our weekend:

And I'd like to say thanks to all in the military who are working hard to protect this country, yesterday, today, and tomorrow! Happy (belated) Memorial Day everyone!
