weekend/bday recap

Remember to enter the 
Birthday Giveaway here

Thanks so much for all of the birthday wishes on my last post!
I had a spectacular birthday. 
I do not like a big fuss made about my bday, low-key is my motto.
So, my awesome friends took me to Cracker Barrel for supper and then we had cake and presents at the house!

Saturday night one of my friends, Britt, was in a
Miss Georgia preliminary pageant. 
This was only the second pageant I have ever been to and apparently it was the longest one in the history of the world. 
{not that I would exaggerate or anything} ;) 
Instead of crowning just 1 queen, they crowned
4 queens in one night. 
Yeah, that took 4 hours.


Despite the competition being so long, it was actually
kind of fun to watch. 
Not that I really understand the whole appeal of
competing in pageants.
It seems like far too much work for me. ;)
Afterwards we went to eat at Huddle House {the only place open} and Britt tried to eat everything
she could not have the past few weeks. 
She did a respectable job at eating all that food
but she was so sick later.
Unfortunately, she did not win this one but she still has several opportunities to win one! 

What did you do last weekend? 


  1. I'm glad you had a fun birthday! I love Cracker Barrel. I ran a half marathon on Saturday and then was lazy/slept a lot the rest of the weekend! Now I'm avoiding catching up on all the cleaning I didn't do :)
