Over the weekend, I hit the quarter-century mark. 25.

The celebration started on Friday when I arrived at work. My sweet boss had decorated my door with streamers, and she wrote out a “happy birthday” message on our old marquee, which up until mid-last week, I was still changing by hand. (We finally got a digital marquee!)

She also left me a beautiful bouquet of flowers and a card. 🙂 In fact, all of my co-workers were incredibly sweet—cards, candy, etc. They sure know how to make a girl feel special.

Then on Friday night, Matt took me out to Leon’s in Decatur, which is one of my favorite patios. Certainly fulfilled my request of a beverage and a patio!

Most of the day on Saturday, my actual birthday, was spent preparing for a cookout in the afternoon. It consisted of cleaning, crafting, decorating, and food shopping. I had a great time, and was grateful for everyone who came to hang out in the back yard.

I picked up the dress last Thursday at Plato’s Closet (still had a Marshall’s price tag on it), and I got the sandals recently from Target.

Pinterest was a big influence on my décor for the party. The balloon topiary inspiration came from here (bamboo poles from Lowe’s for about $3 each); hanging poms from here (paper poms came in packs of three from Target); and I attempted to make these. The ice cream cone cupcakes ended up undercooked and overflowing (still tasty) because I filled them too full. Then the middle sank in after I pulled them out of the oven. Oh well, didn’t find too many people complaining about cake batter cupcakes, but now I know for next time.
