Celebrating 31 + Monday Madness Link Up

Jul 6, 2015
In case you missed my post of Friday - it was my birthday! Friday was our holiday from work/externship. It was the first time I've had my birthday off in a really long time!

 
 
We headed to Grand Haven in the morning for some beach time!
 







I love just having quiet time on the beach or reading and playing games.

 
My school BFF Kelly stopped by and brought me a cupcake!

 
We had a birthday dinner of my choice. Wendy's of course! We also rented The Wedding Ringer and The Judge. I just wanted a relaxing day and it definitely was!
 

My awesome purple cake that Nick made me! He knows the way to my heart!


And now for my gift...


Nick got us tickets to the men's semi final games at the Western and Southern Open in Cinci in August! I really wanted to go! I kinda love watching tennis. I actually just talked about Wimbledon on my blog on Friday. The W&S Open is a Masters 1000 tournament so we have a good chance of seeing some pretty great players such as Novak Djovick, Andy Murray, Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal, and Stan Wawrinka. Players ranked in the top 40 are required to enter so it should be two great semi finals regardless of who ends up playing!



And now for the winner of the Blondes Have More Fun Giveaway...


 
Congratulations to Olya from The Siberian American!
