My very own Mexican birthday fiesta!

Can I just say (again), that I have the coolest sister/brother-in-law ever?! We had plans on Friday to go to their place! Erin kept telling me they had a "bunch up their sleeves", and oh my goodness! They did not disappoint. They immediately greeted me with "FELIZ CUMPLEANOS" at the door, and had an entire mexican feast on the table. They had a bright table cloth on, with "HAPPY BIRTHDAY MONTH" posters all over the windows...then, she showed me the cutest birthday checklist she personally made me. I meaaan!

We made music videos on the Photo Booth, talked about my goals for my year of "23" (even though my bday isn't until Saturday...hehe), and stuffed ourselves with chips & queso, my fav!

Their gift to me was all about "relaxing", filled with an awesome book, candle, bubble bath, and some misc items that I'm just in love with. So it was just fitting that the first Dove chocolate I unwrapped from my gift said this...

...how crazy?! ;) it was meant to be. After gifts, Wii games, and a few dance parties later, Erin and I snuck outside for some girl talk. It was awesome, its crazy that she and I can talk about absolutely anything and know that nothing is off limits. Just don't know what I'd do without her!

Saturday and Sunday were just as awesome. Caleb and I were both completely lazy on one hand, and even a tad bit productive on the other. Naps were taken, groceries were bought, and laundry was (temporarily) done.

I'm really excited for this week, most of our week nights are free, which I'm thrilled about! However, tomorrow night Caleb and I are celebrating my birthday at the One Republic concert! I am so excited I could cry. He's had these tickets forever and I truly can't wait to see them live! Now I'm just praying every few minutes until the concert begins that they play "Something I Need" (you know, the song my man sang to me at our wedding!). Either way, it'll be a blast. I'm so thankful for this life of mine!

Happy Monday, friends...make it a good one!
