Hi, guys!

Thank you for all of the awesome birthday wishes yesterday. It means so much to me! And I had such a wonderful day… and a wonderful weekend! It’s been quite the birthday celebration to say the least. Here’s a little recap from the weekend! 🙂


Saturday kicked off with the “Filthy Fifty” at CrossFit. I hadn’t done this workout in years, so I was excited to see how I’d do, especially since I rarely CrossFit nowadays. Thankfully, I had my friend Marisa to keep me motivated and moving along, and I actually beat my old time by nearly 5 minutes – and I used the women’s prescribed weights this time. Not too shabby!

After class, we, of course, headed to Coffee Shack for donuts and iced coffee.

Maple chocolate-frosted? Yes, please! 🙂

Back at home, we got ready for a small birthday get-together at our house. (I love celebrating other people’s birthdays, but I’m not a fan of making a big deal about my own.) Unfortunately/fortunately, I was having such a great time, I barely took any photos! #bloggerfail

We ordered pizzas from Bertucci’s.

And enjoyed the most amazing peanut butter cup birthday cake.

Holy yum!

And there was a Moana dance party at the end of the night. Good times! 🙂


The next morning, Quinn and I let Dada sleep in for Father’s Day.

As soon as he woke up, it was time for presents.

Father’s Day Chatbook for the win!

FYI: If you have an Instagram account, Chatbooks make THE BEST gifts! You don’t need to upload a bunch of photos or take hours to design your photo book. Chatbook does it all for you – just select the photos that you want to use from your IG feed and you’re done in a matter of minutes! Not sponsored – I actually don’t have any affiliation with the company, but I did use an affiliate link when I mentioned Chatbooks. If you purchase a Chatbook, I just get credit to purchase more Chatbooks! I’m telling ya…!

After that, we ate breakfast and then went outside to play.

Then, Papi (Mal’s dad) came over to spend the afternoon with us, which included opening Quinn’s birthday present. Of course, Murphy thought it was for him.

Oh, pugs.

We had lunch on the back porch, caught up, and opened Father’s Day presents with Papi.

It was just too much excitement for Murphy.

After lunch, we said goodbye to Papi and then played outside some more. This time, we had fun with Corn Hole!

Qman eventually lost interest in Bean Bag Toss, so we went for a walk around the neighborhood.

Qman took his motorcycle!

Our walk ended up being much longer than expected, so we were all pretty hungry when we got home. I whipped up a quick dinner and we ate together on the back porch. It was such a nice evening!

The end!

Do you go all out for your birthday or do you prefer a more low-key celebration?
