Birthday Celebrations

So last week I ended up having a birthday week rather than just a birthday day and I felt so much love from everyone! My celebrations actually started the day before on Tuesday with my knitting group. The girls were so sweet and got me the best red velvet cupcakes and sang me happy birthday. I also got a surprise and our host made me a felted knitting tool bag, it's very cute and handy!

Wednesday was my actual birthday, and my parents and brother sang me happy birthday and we had pizza and ice cream cake. By the time my birthday gets here I am usually so sick of actual cake (since my Grandma, Grandpa, Mom and brother all have their birthdays in June as well) that I usually go for cookie cake or ice cream cake. Sooo good :)

Since it was Wednesday I wanted to go to Mullarkey's with my friends Christina and Michelle for karaoke, but since it was my birthday we all got a little dressed up. We looked a little out of place, especially since there was a group of girls in sweats, but it was still a lot of fun.

Any time we bring out a camera in this group we always decide to take a bunch of goofy pictures, so I thought I'd share them with you all, so you can see just how weird I am sometimes.

It just so happened that there was a lady selling roses in the bar, and she was a lot of fun. She was really silly and joking around, and when I told her it was my birthday she went to go find someone to buy me a rose, and she surprised me by coming back and she actually found someone! Her roses were really pretty, they were dyed all different colors. The ones I got are pretty similar to one another, but she had some cool one that were tie-dyed blue, red, and purple.

My friend Jeni and I
 On Friday we went to dinner at this restaurant called Stone Mad Pub, it was really nice. Michelle actually did a little research on the place, it was a speakeasy during prohibition and they were shut down by the police, and had to pour out thousands of barrels of whiskey and bourbon. They then reopened as a non-alcoholic place and tried to create new NA drinks, but since no one bought them, they had to pour those into the streets as well. It makes me wonder about a water around there a bit, haha.

I was so happy my friend Jeni could come. She is my sci-fi/nerdy/movie buddy, and I had to ambush her to get a picture, she doesn't like cameras too much, I think this is the first picture I've taken with her since the middle of high school.

The painting is cute off in this picture with Michelle and I but it was a really interesting painting. It mixed lots of eras together, it had people whose clothing looked to be 1980s inside the restaurant, and it showed outside having horse and buggies mixed with modern cars, countryside and a city skyline. There was a few other spaces on the walls that used to have paintings but the rest were gone.

Christina and I were overly excited that we were both wearing green and it matched out dresses haha. I have no idea why the color is so off on this picture.

 Neil somehow managed to escape all pictures expect this one, so I guess this is just payback for all of the awkward pictures he's ever posted of me and everyone else. He loves to catch everyone off guard and take the most random pictures.

After dinner we went to this cute 1940s style ice cream shop called Sweet Moses. It has an old fasioned soda bar and the workers wear the white uniforms you see in all the old pictures, it's such a cute little place. I unfourtunately didn't take any pictures here because there were just so many people! The wait was 25 minutes, but it was so worth it!

I had such a great birthday, I loved everything about it. If you've made it to the bottom of this very long post I salute you, I usually try not to make my posts this long but I had a lot to share :)
