In case you didn't hear, it was my birthday.

My 22nd birthday to be exact. And, if you know me, you know that I LOVE birthdays. This one may have been the best yet, and I have had some stinkin' awesome birthdays.

My birthday was on Monday, but my birthday festivities started on Friday when my lovely boyfriend took me on a date. We went to Jammin' Java, went to Mexico Viejo (my fave), and then went to Barnes and Noble to color and look around. He love love loves to plan not normal dates, but I really enjoy low-key conversational dates, so this was perfect. He picked me up pretty early, but I kind of assumed it was because he had to work at 7 the next morning. After all of that we went to his apartment to hang out in the hammock (except not really because I was way too cold for that), but then we walked into his apartment and so many of my favorite people were there!!!

I was totally surprised! I knew my parents were having a party for me on Monday, so I didn't expect this at all. Way to go, friends. 
At the party my friend Julie made me a devil's food cake (from scratch!) and strawberry cupcakes, and my friend Nathan made homemade apple pie. Yep. I'm one spoiled girl. There was a piƱata which I got/had to bust open, and my favorite candy was in it! 
After that we played one of my favorite games (Naked, SWAG, Fishbowl...whatever you like to call it) Celeste version. That meant that at least one thing that each person put in the bowl had to be related to me somehow. That was slightly weird for me, but still really fun. 

It seemed like every time I walked into my room between Saturday and Monday there was another surprise in my room. I feel so loved. Seriously, I have the best friends ever.

At my parents' house on Monday we went on a hayride, mom made tons of manicotti and ravioli, and everyone brought recipes because my mama is putting a recipe book together for me. I'm. So. Excited.
I don't have many pictures from that night because they accidentally ended up on another camera, but here are a few.

Best birthday ever. Thanks everyone. Lovelovelove you tons.
