Photo Booths are a MUST!
Birthday Edition

HI Y'all!!!! 
How was your weekend?! Was it as absolutely amazing as mine?!

As many of you know, last Friday was my birthday! 

The Husband took me to an amazing restaurant that we hadn't tried: Milliken's Reef. Seriously the food was DELICIOUS! I had crab cakes and Caribbean rice! 
I love going on dates with The Husband; just him and I. Especially when we sit on the same side of the table so we can laugh and giggle and have the same viewpoint of those around us. 

Saturday was the big party celebration! 
We spent ALL morning running errands and getting things prepared. 

Dinner was had at the local Outback Steakhouse where I ALWAYS get the seared Ahi Tuna appetizer as my meal. We had the ABSOLUTE BEST service while we were there.
That is saying something because there were 23 people! 

After dinner we made our way back to the house where a dessert bar had been prepared.
I made FOUR different flavors of cupcakes for my dessert bar: 
Yellow Cake
Dr. Pepper
Spice Cake
SO yummy! I made little mini-cupcakes that are bite size and oh so dangerous =) 
My mom helped make some goodies; including home made swiss cake rolls, brownies, grasshopper brownies, and oatmeal cookies. I made the stands from $2 chargers from Hobby Lobby and $1 glass candlestick holders from Dollar Tree! 

I set up a photobooth in one of the rooms. 
That was seriously the Best. Idea. EVER! 

I got the background from Party City - it is a plastic table cloth.
The stick on Mustaches are from Party city. 
The boa is from Hobby Lobby.

All the other props came from Dollar Tree!

As you can see, not everyone got crazy like some of us =) 
There are well over 100 photos that were taken over the course of the evening.
It was by far one of the most fun things I have been a part of.
I definitely encourage those of you planning a wedding - DO A PHOTOBOOTH! 

......oh and, Add a couple of loaded Corona's for good measure =)
