Birthday Shenans

I woke up last Friday on my birthday to this melt your heart sight.  My sweet nephew came over to sing me Happy Birthday on his guitar.  He even brought me his Chuck-E-Cheese birthday crown and said I could borrow it for the day.  It was adorable beyond words.

After I got serenaded, I picked Beth up from the airport and we headed straight to lunch with my friend Chris for a few drinks and some deelish food. 
The place we took her was def a hole in the wall, but the food is really good!
After lunch, we made a pit stop at the liquor store, came home for a short nap and then got ready for my birthday dinner!  My friend Patty and her boyf cabbed it with us on the way to Uptown for dinner:

Dinner was great, my friends surprised me with a cookie cake that said "Princess Lindsey" on it for some reason. I've still yet to hear the story on this one, but apparently there is a story behind this!

I took no pics so I had to steal these from Facebook. Some shots from dinner:

After dinner we went to a bar in Uptown Dallas called Katy Trail Ice House. It's really laid back, which is why I love it so much.

The second night out Beth and I met our prince charming.  A truly elegant gentleman. Wouldn't you agree?
Obviously Beth and I were too enamoured with each other to remember to take photos. We promise to make-up for it in NOLA.  We know we failed majorly.  Please forgive us.

So this basically concludes the birthday weekend other than the fact we made several other trips to restaurants, took a few much needed naps and the police may or may not have showed up Friday night at my apartment for my late night shenans when I pretended to be a "giraffe". Y'all don't want to hear that though right??

I'll be doing a separate post showing all of you my birthday goodies!  I got some really cute and fun stuff. My friends and family did TOO much for lil ole' me, but I'm not complaining.

Happy Friday, I've been 27 for officially a week. Man, I'm old.
