My name is Corinne and I'm a carboholic.
Friday I went to work and was looking forward to having lunch with my Mom and Larry. What I didn't know was that they would be bring dessert along with them! After our lunch I found out my Mom had baked a strawberry cake to surprise me with so we came back to my office and shared with my co-workers and enjoyed the deliciousness. It was such a fun and sweet surprise and definitely made the rest of the afternoon bearable ;)
I got home from work carrying a delicious delivery of Edible Arrangements sent to me from my Dad, sister Nicole, her boyfriend PJ, and their zoo (two cats and dog...and their "garage mouse") and then was surprised to see a beautiful arrangement of flowers from my bestie, Sarah! I was really feelin' the love, y'all.
I wasn't sure if plans had been made for the night but I was hoping we would be spending it with my family - and sure enough, that's exactly what we did! Russ & I headed to my Mom's house where we had a cook-out (my favorite) and finished the night eating delicious strawberry cake (I can't get enough), fruit pizza and of course, s'mores! It was such a fun night - I didn't want it to end!
My Mom made my birthday full of surprises, love and lots of yummy food! What more could I ask for?!
I like food. don't judge. (picture on left is from my edible arrangement - on right is from s'more eating after dinner)
a beautiful ending to my birthday - my parents have the perfect sunset spot.
Saturday morning Russ & I woke up and got ready to head to St. Louis for the day! We stopped at his parents house for a few minutes and said a quick hello before meeting up with our friends Andy and Chelsea for the Inter Milan vs. Real Madrid soccer match! This is the second European soccer match we've been to with them (the first took place at Busch Stadium) and while the Italian team couldn't pull off a win, we still had a great time with them. I miss them living in Columbia, but thankfully St. Louis is only a short drive away and we'll be seeing them again this weekend!

Russ had to work on Sunday so I took the day to catch up on some down time and did normal, boring, Sunday chores like laundry, go to the grocery store and get things ready for the week. Overall, my birthday weekend was absolutely wonderful! I got to spend time with loved ones, eat delicious food, enjoy absolutely beauuutiful weather and have plenty of fun! It was the perfect way to kick off 27 :)
