Good Morning! As some of you may already know, Sunday was my 27th birthday! It was a beautiful day…and truly a celebration of such a wonderful year…So I thought I’d share pictures from the weekend with all of you!
My husband, sister, and I started off the celebrations on Saturday by going to plum market where we found Zevia and Artic Zero! Zevia is a soda sweetened with stevia, and Arctic Zero is an amazing protein packed ice cream that has only 150 calories per pint! Both can only be found at specialty stores, so these really were special birthday treats!
From there we went strawberry picking! It’s been a birthday tradition that we started a few years back, and is always so much fun!
Even Sean enjoys it!
I was working hard to find the good ones!
Here’s the final product from all the ‘hard’ work! :)
Sean is always very good at finding ‘only the best’ ;)
For dinner we went to my favorite place to eat in Ann Arbor, Mongolian BBQ!
I opened a few gifts from my sisters boyfriend….Someone knows I like coffee and tea!
We spent the rest of the night in downtown Ann Arbor at the Summer Festival! There were live bands and all kinds of fun events, and the weather was just perfect which made for a wonderful evening!
The next day, (on my actual birthday), I started the day off right with a birthday cake protein shake with cone crushed on top…And of course a candle!
For lunch we went to Jimmy Johns and then we shopped for a while…
Of course we stopped by Biggby, my favorite coffee place! I asked for a ‘cup of whip’ which my sister and I were going to share to put on our coffee, (hey it was my bday), and the girl gave me an overflowing cup full! Haha…All we could do was laugh!
And we finished it all off with my other favorite treat, fro yo!
For dinner, I went to my parents house where my mom set the table beautifully as usual!
We had my favorite meal…shish kabob!
We also enjoyed some of the strawberries we picked…
As well as a side salad and baked parmesan chips!
And Of Course My Birthday Ice Cream Cake! (Recipe coming this summer!)
The neat thing was, it was also fathers day, so my dad and I got to celebrate each other! :)
The cake turned out amazing!!!
Then came gifts! My husband got me a wedding picture blown up on a canvas…It was a very special gift to me!
I received tons of amazing Dashing Dish stuff…
But my favorite thing by far was the engraved DD cutting board! That was such a special gift from my sister!
I hope you all enjoyed this Birthday Edition of the Daily Dish! I am going to leave you all with another big announcement! My husband and I are moving!!! We are moving July 10th to a home that we are renting! We are still saving up for a home, and are trying to wait on the Lord’s direction as far as where we should live longterm, so we are going to rent for at least a year! We are only moving about 20 minutes away from where we are now, so hopefully it won’t be too big of a move, although I know every move is a lot of work, so please keep us in your prayers these next few weeks!
Hope you all have a blessed rest of your week! XO Katie
