A {Little} Extravaganza

***warning - picture overload***
This past weekend was my big 18th  26th birthday!
I didn't even cry, not once about turning 26!
BIG HUGE accomplishment for me and my sweet husband definitely made it such a wonderful weekend full of surprises that I couldn't do
anything but enjoy turning 26!
Friday we left our fur babies with their grandparents for the entire weekend, we definitely felt like we were those parents who have no idea what to do with out their children around...(or at least I think that's what it felt like)
So we did what every crazy parent does on a Friday night without their kids...drink 2 beers out of a 12 pack and call it a night.
Saturday we were up early and headed to the BIG D and I don't mean divorce...
(like how I changed up that one country song???)
Our first stop was the new Perot Museum

Z checking out what it looks like to hunt at night like a bird

Of course there had to be a tornado...

and there had to a whole floor about drilling for oil....

This guy was scary to take a picture of and he is dead!

Our favorite part of the museum was experiencing an earthquake...not a real one of course, we got to stand on a platform that shakes the same way a very extreme earthquake does. I have never experience a real earthquake but I would for sure die from a heart attack if the ground was moving like that!
Then we made a pit stop at Sfuzzi's
I ordered a mimosa and we shared a pizza with a fried egg on it!
The pizza was SOOOO GOOD and that carafe in the background, was the carafe of champagne they brought me....let's just say I am not one to day drink and be able to function.
I had to fight through it....
Next stop the Dallas Aquarium

This is a shark in a tunnel you walk through...he kept laying on the glass showing everyone his belly

Our favorite part of the aquarium was seeing all of the different fish, sharks, and the flamingos!!
Also, we thoroughly enjoyed watching a mother yell and shove her children so that she could get a self picture against a brick wall....
After the aquarium we headed to the mall, because you can't go to Dallas and not go to North Park!
I got so lucky at their 2 story Forever21!
2 shirts, pants, dress, 2 bracelets and necklace for $100 score!
And of course I needed my cake and to eat it too...except this cake is so good we stood in line and comes in the form of Sprinkles Cupcakes!
My favorite is the Banana Cupcake with chocolate frosting!
Our last stop of the night was to dinner at a super trendy restaurant called Saint Ann's (Dallas filmed a scene there!)
When we walk in I see my bff Alyssa and her man Chase!
And I cried....so I may have lied before.
But it's my party and I will cry if I want to, damn it!
Z did such a good job of keeping the whole day a secret and even not letting it out that Alyssa and Chase were meeting us for dinner....
I am a pretty lucky girl!


  1. I LOVE that last picture of you two, and what a fun birthday celebration!! Love that he surprised you with friends at dinner, what a good man he is ;) And seriously... I could reeeally go for a cupcake right about now!

  2. Such fun pictures! I love going to the aquarium and seeing all the different fish and sea creatures. :)
