We didn’t make it to see The Avengers this weekend. It’s not that we didn’t want to – I was looking forward to it all week! But unfortunately, our weekend was so packed full of a million things that it just didn’t happen. By the time Friday came around, I just wanted to lie in bed and not move. Of course, my weekend was pretty awesome anyway!
Thursday, we went out with Mark’s mom and sister for lunch, and I was given a free chocolate brownie cake thing that I ate one bite of and passed around to the rest of the table. What can I say? It had Oreo cookies on it. (Yuck!) They also sang to me and made a ridiculous fuss – so fun! His sister came back to our apartment (bringing a homemade cheesecake!) and I made my traditional birthday meal: Dorito Chicken and Mexican rice! We drank and played board games until the wee hours of the night.
Friday, Mark did some laundry and I laid in bed most of the day. I’d had a headache for about a week, so I needed the rest. I don’t remember most of the rest of what happened that day, to be honest. I know it involved lots of Minecraft and finishing the Dorito Chicken from Thursday, but that’s about all I remember!
Saturday was the big party with a group of our friends – we had about 16 of us at a friend’s house for a potluck and gaming night! The food was incredible – we had two different kinds of cupcakes, a full birthday cake, taco dip, two kinds of ribs, veggie and fruit plates, biscuits, deviled eggs – and the gaming was so much fun. We ended the night with a 15-player game of Werewolf, and played more and more rounds as people started to go home.
All in all, probably the best birthday I’ve had in years. Today, however, it’s time to get back to classes! How was your weekend?
