Who DOESN'T love birthdays?!

Some of you may know Kayla, my brother-in-law's awesome girlfriend, who is often referred to as K-Bug on this blog and gets some regular shout-outs. Well her BIG 21st birthday is FINALLY this Thursday and we are kicking things off right! ;)

Friday after work we got together with J's family for dinner, presents and of course funfetti cake!
Birthday girl and our favorite pup, Maggie!

J is doing what we refer to as "high-shoulders" ....it's his go-to awkward photo pose.

Honestly, how pretty is she?!
And our cute nephew with the mohawk wanted in on the candy

Almost 21 baby!!
 Her actual birthday is this coming THURSDAY and a big group of her family and friends will be going downtown and eating at Joe's Crab Shack-- anyone ever been there?! She loves it, but I've actually never been-- so looking forward to that night for LOTS of reasons :)

Is there anything better than Funfetti?!?! I didn't think so.

I seriously just love this girl and can't wait to celebrate with her all week long :) BTW- no amount of photoshop was going to help my red/greasy face after a disgustingly hot, long day at work. Thank you PicMonkey for providing me with "Dusk" to help things out just a bit.

That's literally the only thing I did this weekend other than work. I was at the office most of Saturday, as well as Sunday night. Add that in with staying up wayyyy too late and watching the Olympics and you gots one TIRED Erin the Blogger.

Hope your Monday is great! Read my post from yesterday if you need a little pick-me-up ;)
