Birthdays should be a week long

...or a month long ;)

(outfit from virtual shopping trip with miss Jess; outfit Macy's, necklace F21, wedges TJ Maxx.)

How was everyone's weekend?

I have a lot of pictures to share with you today! This weekend we had some awesome visitors stay with us...Billy brother and his 3 cousins :) We were so excited to have them stay with us and I know Billy was ecstatic about getting to golf and hang out with them all weekend.

Billy, cousin Jonathon, brother Kevin, and cousin Dave.

Friday night the boys went out and I decided to have myself a lil relaxing girly night. I caught up on my tv shows I had missed last week and did some shopping...it was exactly what I needed. Saturday morning the guys got up and went golfing..it was such a beautiful day. 80 and sunny. Funny story...I walked in say good morning to Billy's brother and found him in our guest bed covered in our KITCHEN TABLECLOTH. So silly. I asked him why he was wrapped up like a hot dog in our tablecloth and he told me he was cold? (even though I did have blankets on the bed). Love it. While the boys were golfing I took it upon myself to get a relaxing mani/pedi and then layed out in le swim suit on our deck to soak up the sun! Perfecto.

I came down from upstairs Saturday afternoon after the boys got back from golfing
and found them like this...

Saturday night we went to a nice restaurant called Black Olive with Billy's family and a bunch of my girlfriends to have an early birthday celebration!! My girlfriend Angela bought me my favorite Skinny Girl Margaritas ;) we had a little too much fun celebrating that night...

love of my life.

My awesome brother in law :)

Sunday I attended a baby shower for my girlfriend Tara and then we went out to dinner to a japanese steakhouse with my parents to celebrate my birthday with them {multiple birthday celebrations are obviously mandatory ;}. I didn't get any pictures with them unfortunately..I forgot to take one at dinner. We came back to our house after dinner and had my favorite HOHO cake! If you haven't tried it, you must. My parents got me a huge bottle of my new favorite perfume I've been wanting...

Daisy - Marc Jacobs

Marc Jacobs Daisy Eau So Fresh Eau De Toilette Spray

The bottle is adorable and it smells heavenly ladies.

If you're wondering why we're doing all this celebrating early, it's because I will be on an unknown beach {unknown to you all, not to me} on my actual birthday Weds. :-) Yippeee!
more info about that on Weds.

On the way home from dinner this is what we saw while driving...

a doubleeee rainbowwww!

Also..my peony bush in our backyard has started to bloom...
I absolutely love peonies

and I cut some off to put in our house...

What did you do this weekend?

 Did you have beautiful weather too?
