Last week consisted of a second date, a Friday off of work for my birthday and an explosive all-day birthday party.
Anyway, this is a happy post and I'm going to be positive. :)
I am super happy that it is Friday!!
I am so happy I got to go to Kerbey Lane for dinner with Ashley on Wednedsday night and thanks to Groupon - our check was only for $1.81.
I am so happy that I got to spend some time with the Hatcher's last night. Brent & Sarah made some awesome steak with mushrooms and onions. I never knew I liked steak!! It was quite tasty!
I am so happy that the family is getting together for my mom's birthday this weekend!
Yes, June is a very busy birthday month in our family.
Mine is the 17th, my sister's is the 19th and my mom's is the 27th.
I am so happy that I have continued to get up every morning at 6am to go walking for 30 to 45 minutes. It makes my day awesome!
This is what I saw when I pulled into my mother's driveway:
The decorations were INSANE!! They
went way overboard...but in a good way!
There were pictures of me everywhere!!!
One of my favorite things to eat is concession stand food! (I love to go to baseball games just for the food!) So they had grilled hot dogs with chili, pickles, queso & chips and popcorn!
As you can see, Sarah made an awesome cake that looked like popcorn. It was made with fruit roll ups and marshmallows.
And my favorite... The movie posters.
They somehow got a Super 8 movie poster and had people who attended the party sign it.
Sarah also made a custom movie poster.
The thing that made me crack up was at the bottom it said
Written and Directed by God. And the actors and
producer's names were my family members.
PS. There were more than nine people at the party - this picture was taken before the party. LOL!
Here is the invitation that my sister-in-law (Liz) created for my all-day birthday party on Saturday (June 18th).
As you will see, the whole day was movie themed.
Note: As you can see this picture was cropped. I had the back of the invitation shown but realized that it had my home address and my mom's home address listed. Here is what it said: 9:30 - Meet at Amy's House (Girl's Only) 10:00 - Movie Scavenger Hunt (Girl's Only) -Bring a digital camera 12:00 - Meet at Morelia Grill (Girl's Only) 2:00 - Go to Movie (Girl's Only) 4:00 - Go to Rhonda's House (Boyfriends/Husbands welcome)
The girls met at my house at 9:30 am. Once everyone arrived,
my mother and Sarah (who created the game) took the time to
explain the rules of the Movie Scavenger Hunt. After they
explained the rules, they split us up into three groups and gave
us the scavenger hunt list and sent us on our way. We had to complete
as many items as we could and meet at the restaurant by noon.
Here was the handout that Sarah passed out:
The three teams: Team One: Me, Sarah, Ashley & Summer Team Two: Doris, Liz, Melissa & Christyn Team Three: Rhonda, Carol & Christina
Here are the pictures from the Scavenger Hunt:
Best. Birthday. Ever. - Part 2 will be posted tomorrow.
