Happy Birthday to Me!

On May 13, I turned 34! It's sort of a weird number to me, and it's really strange to be entering my mid-30s!

When I was a kid, your parents maybe took photos of you every month, but they didn't have something in them telling you how many months old you were and they certainly weren't shared in a ton of places. So I thought it would be fun to take a photo showing how many months old I was on my birthday this year!

The night before, Adam took me to the Ryman to see Drew Holcomb and the Neighbors as one of my birthday presents. (My other present was a vacuum, which I feel like says something about being in your mid-30s, ha!)

It was a great show, and it was worth staying up until almost midnight to get to see it.

While I'm not so old that I can't swing the late night, the bigger thing was we had to be up at 4am to get to the airport. That's right - for the first time ever, I was going on a trip on my actual birthday! Adam had a work conference the next week at a resort on the beach in St. Pete, FL so we decided I should tag along and to go a few days early.

On the plane, Adam managed to secretly tell a flight attendant it was my birthday. She surprised me later with a birthday crown and a free drink coupon. Yay for Southwest!

We got to our resort, and the view from our room/balcony was AWESOME!

We changed into swimsuits and spent some time on the beach, followed by some time at the pool. Not so shabby of a birthday! We changed again and went to one of the hotel restaurants for some lunch. By that time, it was getting a little cloudy. We were running on 4 hours of sleep, so we decided a birthday nap was in order. I'm so glad we got some rest because I knew Adam had a dinner planned for us that I wanted to enjoy.

He surprised me by taking me to an awesome steak place in St. Pete called Rococo Steak. It was sooooooo good. Seriously, look at my filet mignon.

I also got a fun and yummy birthday dessert!

It was really special to have a nice meal with my handsome husband to celebrate my birthday.

After dinner, we walked around downtown a bit and then found a grocery store to stock up on a few things for the week. Once we got back to the hotel, we watched a little Netflix (we've been working through The Walking Dead) before calling it a night.

All in all, it was a super awesome birthday!
