Birthday Weekend Update

I totally had the absolute best birthday weekend - complete with family, friends and more alcohol than my body knows how to handle.
Since the 4th of July was mid-week, I decided to include what I did that day in this post. We started off the day at a pool party where the guys engaged in a slip n slide obstacle course. We had to leave early to make it to a celebration where they were going to create a human flag. If you look closely you can see my sister and I behind the "O" in "CBS RADIO". I'm such a sucker for anything patriotic.  After the human flag we stuck around to watch the fireworks!
On Thursday, Justin and I decided to go to a just us birthday dinner at Brio. I indulged in chicken, steak and shrimp skewers that were incredible! Friday was my actual birthday so Justin came downtown to have lunch with me on my break and then we hit up Kobe for dinner with my family. If you don't know what Kobe is, I feel very sorry for you. It's only the greatest food in the world! 
Unfortunately, Justin had to work Friday night so it ended up being just a friends night out - which was INCREDIBLE. We partied like it was my last night on the face of the Earth and not just my last night of being 25. EEK!
Totally was feeling it the next day, but we still made it to St. Augustine for the Annual Flip Flip 'Til You Drop pub crawl. It took me many medicines and hair of the dog to finally feel 80% normal again. I will say that Friday night was worth every ounce that the hangover took out of me.

Below is some of the fabulous gifts I received from my family and friends. Justin got me my love bracelet, the curling iron, fabulous Turquoise shoes and a HUGE bottle of Moroccan Oil and a gift card to the mall so I can shop til I drop! Landyn, my Sister and Mom got me nail polish and gift cards to a whole bunch of places.
Last night was my final birthday celebration. We went to my favorite restaurant, Bonefish!  My friends literally outdid themselves this year. They picked my presents better than I ever could have.

The new Mrs. Milton got me a reading bag for my iPad or regular book to carry on the beach, Kindle giftcard, OPI fast drying top coat and spray (I already used it last night. LOVE IT!), cutest coral earrings that I'm sportin' today, rose gold bangles, napkins with a woman empowerment message, wine bottle cork and Pier 1 crackle stemless wine glasses. I used to have the crackle ones awhile back and they broke and I've wanted them back ever since. I'm tellin' ya there was thought and skill that went into her present!

My name twin got me the most creative little Pinterest inspired basket ever! She got me my new travel bottle of Moroccan Oil, a gorgeous maxi dress, 2 packs of false eyelashes, Sand Tropez Essie Nail Polish, bottle of Absolut and limes (my drink of choice), a picture frame of us with a song that we used to  sing all the time and a hand painted rose gold wine glass that she carefully bedazzled with the letter "S" and "MK" to match my watch! They seriously are insane and no me better than I know myself. I mean could I ask for better friends? I think not.
Well there you have it, my crazy insane 5 day birthday week. I couldn't have asked for a better weekend and I'm so glad my friends were able to celebrate with me! I truly feel so very blessed!
