Birthday Weekend...Who Am I Kidding....Birthday MONTH!!!

Sippin' on some Boba Latte
Michael Buble Concert (L- Christine, Me & Cathie)
Me and Hunter!
Last Sunday was my birthday and I started celebrating Friday with my family.  We went out to Owasso and had dinner at Logan's Roadhouse...yummy food!  Of course they had to embarrass me and have me stand on a chair in the restaurant so everyone could wish me a "YeeeeeHawww" Birthday.  
The next day I left for Dallas to have a fun girls weekend with 2 of my dear friends, Cathie and Christine.  We stopped at an Asian market and got some stuff to make my favorite...Curry chicken among other dishes and we went next door to have Boba Tea.  Then we went to the Shops at Legacy...FUN shops and great places to eat.  We had dinner at Mi Cocina and had some delicious food.  We then went to the Container Store....I feel organized just walking through the doors!!!  I got some containers for some gift wrapping stuff that will go in my newly organized closet (Which I've managed to keep in tip top shape for almost an entire month)!  Next...the World Market...what don't they have, seriously?!?!   Then we went to one of my favorite stores to visit Z Gallerie- they have so many great things, I love to just look and get ideas.  I found a pillow on-line and it inspired the entire color scheme of my living room!  
We had a bit of drama on the way down to Texas...the whole reason we were going is to see Michael Buble in concert...LOVE HIM!  Well...we got to the Texas state line and Cathie realized she left the tickets on her dresser!!! Needless to say she didn't sleep well that night but we got up and got on the phone with ticket master right away and they hooked us up with some replacement tickets...same seats and everything, whew!  
After we got the ticket thing squared away we went to Gateway Church where one of my favorite worship leaders, Kari Jobe (pronounced like the book of the Bible), leads worship.  All of it was great, the worship, the message, the bookstore...EVERYTHING!  
After church we were off to this cozy little cafe called La Duni- I HIGHLY recommend it and the Pastry Basket is a MUST....One word about this nice little restaurant....DA-LISH!!!  After La Duni we decided to go to Sprinkles Beverly Hills for my birthday cupcake, there was a line out the door...kind of crazy but WORTH IT!!!  Off to the Galleria Mall....spent my one of my birthday gift certificates and got some new shades, that I LOVE.  We went back to the hotel and got ready for the Concert (That was on my actual b-day- Michael told me he wanted to do a special concert for my b-day, so I said "twist my arm") ;-D  It was great.  This UNBELIEVABLE group called Naturally 7 opened for him- they do vocal play...what that means is they don't have a single instrument but it sounds like they have an entire band b/c they make the sounds of the different instruments with their MOUTHS!!!!  Incredible.  Michael put on an amazing show, as usual, very entertaining and humorous.  I really like seeing him in concert.  We went back to the hotel and enjoyed our delicious cupcakes that we got earlier that day...YUMMY.  
We decided we had better get back to T-town b/c the weather was supposed to be bad the whole drive back.  We had a delicious Latin breakfast at Cafe Brazil.   After that, we made a quick stop in Allen to see my dog Hunter.  When I moved into my apartment and Nana moved to Owasso we couldn't keep him :-(  I miss him sooo much but it was great seeing him...He jumped all over me and wouldn't stop licking my was sooooo cute.  
That was my birthday weekend....I'll be celebrating with some friends this Sunday evening with dinner at my apt....I'll post pictures later of that one.

One, I'm exhausted after reading that and second, I feel that I've just traveled around the country with you all your different stops
