It's My Birthday!

Today is my 34th birthday!  I was actually born on Labor Day and my mom loves to joke about how she was in labor on Labor Day!

The weekend festivities started off on Saturday with being able to take Bella into the Magic Kingdom for the Disney Parks Blog Disney Side Dog's Day at Magic Kingdom Park!  It was an incredible and fun experience!


Saturday night was supposed to be spent enjoying a Gator win but the game got delayed twice due to storms and then finally cancelled.  So sad!  I'm ready for the Gator football season to start!

On Sunday, I got up and got a run in.  Then on Sunday night I headed out for a girl's night of fun.  I met up with Meghan (Meghan on the Move), Cecille, Carla, and Cindy at Big River Grille & Brewing Works for dinner.


I had a yummy steak.



I also tried the pineapple mojito. It was good!!


Meghan and I had to get one of our traditional pics.

Speaking of those pics...Meghan made me a scrapbook of all of our pictures!  I loved it!


For dessert, Cecille brought cupcakes from Blue Bird Bake Shop.


I stole the chocolate one.



We took a group shot outside.

Then said goodbye to Carla and Cindy.


Meanwhile, Cecille, Meghan, and I headed to one of my most favoritest places!  JELLYROLLS!


I was so excited to be introducing them to this great place.  As I was there last night, I realized so much of my life has happened there.  That's where Kory and I met for the first time.  We've spent numerous nights there with friends and family, Kory's brother worked there, we spent New Year's Eve there one time, and my parents even threw me my 30th surprise birthday party there.

So I was glad that the girls were up for going.



And yup--we needed one of our pics.

We stayed until just after midnight--just long enough so that I could say I was there on my birthday!  Then we headed home.  It was a great way to kick off my birthday day!

This morning I slept in then Kory and I headed to Firehouse Subs for my birthday lunch.  I got my classic Hook & Ladder.  My fav!


Then we went over to Downtown Disney to see the movie If I Stay.  I'd been wanting to see it and it's not up Kory's alley but he decided to take me since it was my birthday and all.  It was so good but soooo sad!

We went back home for a little while and I opened some birthday presents.  I'd been needing a new Chi and my mom got me this pretty breast cancer awareness one.


 Kory got me these Gator Jello molds (yes, I asked for them!!)


A foam roller because my old one was starting to have a dent in the middle


And then a Gator tailgating chair


I cuddled with my furbaby for a little bit


And then we changed to head back out to dinner.  He surprised me with dinner at Deep Blu.  I've been wanting to eat there for a while so I was excited!


It was delicious!  I'll be posting a full review on it coming up this week!

Then we headed over to Hollywood Studios.  I'd been wanting to see the Frozen Fireworks so indulged me.

It was so hot!

Unfortunately, I did not pick a good spot to watch the fireworks.  Sigh.

But I still loved the show!










I had such a wonderful birthday!
