a perfect 27

Very few times in life do you picture an event in your head and it actually works out that way. This weekend I had the perfect birthday day in mind and it definitely came true.

Saturday was my 27th birthday. It sounds old just because it's so close to 30 but it doesn't bother me...yet! I wanted a relaxing, low key birthday and got just what I wanted. Zach let me sleep in and I woke up to the smell of pancakes...yummy! Micah, Zach and I ate breakfast and then I opened my presents. Zach got me a North Face pullover and had 4 of our family pictures enlarged and framed ( I knew exactly what I was getting because I helped pick it out online but still it's always better in person!)

When we started figuring out where to hang the pictures it just didn't seem to work out. I really wanted them in the kitchen so we finally rearranged the furniture to fit them on the wall. This was my first big rearrangement on my own, but with Zach's great table idea I think it turned out well. Here's a shot of the new arrangement and a close up of our beautiful pics.

After breakfast we headed to Sports Authority to exchange my pullover for a different size and then I went to get a manicure and pedicure (courtesy of my parents' gift of bday money) while Zach headed home with Micah. If money allowed it I think this would be a monthly treat. It's just so relaxing!!

I made it home just in time to watch the Auburn/Georgia game at 12:30. While eating wings we watched the game until the 2nd quarter when our power went out! boo! For the next hour Zach and I each had one ear piece and listened to the game through the crappiest radio feed imaginable. By the end of the 3rd quarter the power was back on. We ended up losing, of course, but I have to say it was the best loss we played all season so we focused on that.

Later that evening some of our closest friends were able to come over to grill out, watch football and make smores!

Thanks Zach, Micah and everyone else for a fabulous day!
