My birthday was last weekend. We celebrated as we normally do (by going out to eat whenever I felt like it)(which was often) and it was fairly low key. I have a good friend from our old neighborhood who has a birthday the day after mine and, in the past, we've done a big girls night out together to celebrate. We were both feeling kind of home-bodyish this year though (she's 34 weeks pregnant. I don't blame her) so instead we decided to do a belated celebration and invited people to my house for appetizers, desserts and a fire on Tuesday night.
It was super dark by the time everyone arrived with their contributions, so unfortunately this is the best of my pictures. BUT we ate like queens. I made Janssen's jalapeno popper dip (SO GOOD) and served it with popchips and raw veggies. We at almost the whole (huge) pan. Someone else brought apples and a yummy caramel dip I'd never had before. There were muffins, s'mores, crudites and several yummy dips, homemade salsa, and candy galore. Aaron had to roll me to bed afterward.
I've always loved going out with these ladies but it was SO nice just having everyone come over. Sure, it meant I had to clean and whip up some dip but it was also very relaxed. Being in a private backyard as opposed to a crowded restaurant meant we were free to discuss aliens, bikini waxing, and whatever odd topic we drifted to without having to worry about offending other diners. It was the perfect way to welcome in the last year of my twenties!
So far 29 is shaping up to be pretty awesome.
