Weekend Snapshots | 13

Today's Weekend Snapshots is brought to you by the lovely fries from Whataburger that I picked up Sunday thanks to a fantastical friend who gifted me a Whataburger gift card! You can do no wrong when gifting a Whataburger gift card! Muchos thanks, Susana! 😂 I also got an Amazon and Starbucks gift card! See, gift cards are definitely the way to go with me!

SATURDAY, BIRTHDAY | The plan was to get to Saint Arnold's Brewery early so we could get good tables. Our alarm went off but the process of getting out of bed was a lot slower than we anticipated. So we definitely were not the first of our crew there. We were still early enough to get good tables and await the delicious empanadas Mama Carrizo would be bringing for my birthday celebration. We drank, we ate, we played games and we took hilarious photo booth pictures! Thanks to it actually being my birthday on Saturday, Saint Arnold's hooked me up with a special Happy BeerthDay pint. It'll be cherished forever and ever! E bought a Texas Indepence Day pint because TEXAS! I played Cards against Humanity (affiliate) for the first time and Mama Carrizo did, too. It was hilarious to watch everyone's faces on the ridiculous shit we'd pick. After beer, we went to Coco's Crepes with a few of those who didn't have plans. I ate an amazing banana & cinnamon crepe. We chatted a bit and then we all went home. E and I spent what felt like foreverrrrrr trying to play some Borderlands, but the PS4 kept acting a fool. An hour later we finally got it working so we played a bit but then we truly showed our age by going to bed early. It's that time of the year where E and I are both 32. It lasts a month and two days, but he's still an old ass and I make sure to tell him everyday 😂

Before I move on to Sunday, I want to thank everyone for coming out. For some, it's been a while since we've seen each other and seeing them again on my birthday made the day incredibly special! Muchos thanks E, Vince, Becca, Amanda, Susana, Jihane (& Sean), Dante, John, Julian, Stephanie, and most of all Mama Carrizo and my sister! You guys made my birthday amazing & I'm truly thankful!

SUNDAY | When you're over 27, you don't recover from drinking the same way. I mean, sometimes it takes a full day to recover. Thankfully, that's not what happened in my case. Whew! But it was a super chill day for me. I caught up on some chores at Casa de Reed and also played with some new Studio Calico goodies I gifted myself for my birthday. It arrived Thursday but I was so busy that I didn't get a chance to open it until Sunday.Gasp! I know, so weird. I lost my creative paper bug and now I'm on the lookout for it again. I am starting Project Life again but I chose to start on my birthday month and there's some changes to this years Project Life. Stay tuned for that.
