So before I get I give you all a recap of our weekend, I have to say a few things.

Ryan, thank you for always being there for me, holding my hand, making my tears go away, just like the picture above shows.

Thank you for always making me laugh.ย Thank you for being the amazing Christian man and leader that I need. Thank you for praying for me, loving me, and always putting me above yourself. Thank you for supporting me, putting up with me, and never getting mad when my alarm goes off at 4:45 in the morning. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Thank you for constantly encouraging me and supporting me in everything I do. Thank you for being a gentleman at all times and doing the little things, like opening my door and cleaning the dishes. You are an amazing person, and you positively impact so many ย people in our life. You make me a better person, a better wife, and a better Christian. I am honored to submit myself to you and follow you, because by doing this I know I am also following Jesus.

Okay, so now onto a recap of our super fun, marvelous weekend! This means I definitely have to link up with Marvelous Mondays!


Like I mentioned, we started celebrating Ryan’s birthday Saturday by staying at a hotel that night and going out to eat. The hotel was really nice, (and I got a great deal which made it even better!), but the only disappointment was that the pictures showed there was an indoor hot tub with the indoor pool, but I guess they haven’t updated their website because where the hot tub should have been was just a table and chairs. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ But we definitely didn’t let that ruin our weekend, and we still had a blast!

We started off the day by going to Ryan’s favorite store!


I actually really enjoy going to this store too. Ryan didn’t buy anything, but he had some things he needed to return and we just looked around.


I told Ryan to pick anywhere he wanted for us to eat, and this was his choice.


Burger House Hamburgers! Ryan loves places like this, where they just make good burgers, fries, and homemade shakes. He isn’t a fancy restaurant guy, which I love about him. Plus, I love restaurants like this too, so it made for a perfect dinner.


This was my meal. I know this looks like a lot of food, but I actually got the kids meal! This was the kid’s burger and fries and then a small vanilla milkshake. It was all delicious! ๐Ÿ™‚

I think the handsome birthday boy liked his dinner.


After we ate we were both stuffed and went back to our hotel room to relax and watch the Dallas Mavericks basketball game. Ryan didn’t want to do anything else. I know this date night doesn’t seem like much, but it was perfect for us!

We woke up the next morning and were ready for the free breakfast the hotel offered by the time it opened at 7:00 a.m. I enjoyed some oatmeal with walnuts and some eggs.


Ryan and I both agreed that it was one of the best free hotel breakfasts we had ever had. The eggs were actually real and didn’t look like patties. (Do y’all know what I’m talking about? Where they don’t look or taste like eggs? If you don’t know, consider yourself lucky).

By the time we got back home it was too late to go to our own church, so we watched a sermon online together, and then took our dogs out for a walk before the Cowboys football game started.


We actually went for a walk/run, and I was very proud of Ryan because it has been a while since he last ran. But when we finished I think he was a little tired. ๐Ÿ™‚


For the rest of the afternoon we relaxed, Ryan watched football, and I did some grocery shopping and food prep for the week. Ryan also helped me make dinner, so we had some delicious chicken fajitas with guacamole!


I ate mine on corn tortillas and topped them eat with spinach and tomatoes. Then I had carrots, bell pepper, and some Almond Thins with guacamole. Delicious!

That was all of our birthday weekend, but of course we are still celebrating today!


I got this Happy Birthday sign at WalMart last night, so it will probably be up all week. ๐Ÿ™‚ Tonight we are having Ryan’s favorite meal for dinner, cheeseburgers, chips and queso, and macaroni and cheese. Then pumpkin pie for dessert!

Ryan, I hope you have an amazing birthday, and I look forward to celebrating many more with you! Love you!


1. Tell me something fun from your weekend!

2. What is your favorite meal?

3. What is your favorite flavor of milkshake?



  1. Favorite meal – I’m with Ryan and I’d always choose a burger. Favorite milkshake flavor – chocolate. What else is there?

    Happy birthday to Ryan! The selfie of the two of you in the car is precious, and I can tell how much you love him from everything you say in this post. Wishing him a happy day, and both of you continued happiness together!

  2. First and foremost, you two are a beautiful couple. The love you share for one another is just beaming through each photo.

    Second, Happy belated Birthday to your main man! I personally think his weekend birthday celebration sounds perfect. Nothing beats just relaxing with your love one & watching some good sports!

    Have a wonderful week,
