Birthday Weekend

I turned 24 this past Friday and had a wonderful weekend celebrating with family & friends.


The weather was perfect on Friday to go to the Detroit Zoo. My husband and I headed out there after going out to breakfast to enjoy the day. Our favorite part is the underwater tunnel where seals and polar bears swim over you. The polar bears weren’t out, but we got a few pictures with the seals. After the zoo, we had dinner with my family and then went to a going away party for a friend to end the night. IMG_2175



I celebrated my birthday with friends on Saturday as we headed out to a local apple orchard / cider mill to pick apples. We spent some time there and then went back to my house for dinner and dessert.



On Sunday, we went to the Packers vs. Lions game at Ford Field. My friend, Julie, got incredible seats sitting 2nd row on the 40 yard line. Although we live in metro Detroit, my husband is a Packers fan so I also wore a Packers jersey to support his cause. Unfortunately, the Packers lost which led to an embarrassing walk of shame back to the car through a sea of Lion’s fans. We had fun nonetheless. IMG_2142IMG_2192

    Happy Birthday, my dear! Your weekend looks so fun. I’m so glad we’ve become friends. <3

    Although…I'm a little disappointed that your football jersey was not impeccably layered over an oxford and topped off with a bowtie, but oh well. haha.

      When I do a “What to Wear to a Game” post I will include that outfit! So good! I am glad we have become friends as well. 🙂
