birthday weekend #1

Today is my bird day!  I'm the big 2-4...whew, I feel kind of old. 

My parents came to town to celebrate my birthday this weekend!  Here are some of the highlights:

We started Saturday off with lunch at one of my favorite spots, Park Tavern.  We got the hummus to start, and I munched on a delicious spinach salad for my main course.  

After lunch, we did a little shopping and went to see Lincoln.   

Jimbo, Sherbo, and Me

Austin and Me
The movie was pretty good...I just kind of felt like I was in History class again.  Austin and I are going to see Argo tonight, so hopefully that one is a little more exciting.

We had dinner at Iron Cactus on Saturday night.  We had never been there before, and we all really enjoyed it.  We got to sit on the 3rd floor patio (a rare occurance on my birthday since it's always freezing!), and the view was awesome!  The food and drinks were excellent.  I think we'll definitely be back.

Once we were back home, I opened my presents and we played cards.  I love hanging with the fam...it's one of my favorite things to do!

Austin and I  went over to our friends Zac and Cody's house for the big game on Sunday.  We "tailgated" for awhile on the grassy knoll outside their apartment, and then it was time for the game and some food!

We had venison burgers with beans, chips & guac, and peanut butter chocolate chip cookies for dessert.  I betcha can't guess which thing I brought ;)

Like I said, Austin and I are going out tonight, and then I have a big celebration with friends this coming weekend! I am a very lucky birthday girl!
