The Last Birthday That I Actually Spent With My Husband

Venus Trapped in Mars

When I was trying to figure out what I'd like to reminisce about today, I  pondered spooky decor, haunted houses, and slutty  college costumes, but I thought...No, I'm just not feelin' it. Then, like a zombie hand had guided me, I stumbled upon the pictures of the last Birthday I spent with Will three years ago.

It was the beginning of October, and we were stationed in Augusta Georgia. We were missing our friends, so we tossed around the idea that we all meet up in the cute wittle mountains in Northern Georgia for a fun-filled weekend. Considering everyone else lived in Tennessee, Maryland, and Virginia, we knew it would be a feat, and yet somehow it all worked out, and the stars aligned.

Our cabin was amazing, the boys cooked up some amazing food, the jacuzzi was a hit, and we even attended a few festivals. What I didn't know, was that the weekend was actually planned around me. We came home from the Apple Festival on Saturday, and the whole house was decorated for Halloween! Not only that, but everyone had brought costumes for our middle-of-nowhere Halloween party.

I can't even put into words how perfect the weekend was, and it didn't end there. As most of you know, I am pretty much obsessed with Benihana's, but what you may not know is that I have sucked down that fried rice for my Birthday for nine years in a row. It's usually a drive to find one near us, but the one in Atlanta was on our way home from the mountains. Just take a gander at the plate in front of me...

*Hopefully, I can make it to Benihana's for the tenth birthday in a row. My Sami Girl already said she'd go with me, so I'm seeing a blate in our near future! Woohoo*

By the time we actually got to my Birthday, I thought we were all partied out, but we had one last hurrah. Will knows my love for horses, so he took me out on the trails! I can't even tell you how excited I get around pretty ponies, and riding them is definitely second nature. True story: I could ride a horse before I could walk.

To round out the amazing month of festivities, I got to pass out candy for the first time EVER. Most of the kids were super cute, and I just hid when the big kids came by or the ones that kept trying to loop back around for a double visit. I wasn't letting those conniving little suckers clean me out before I was ready to call it a night. Plus I wanted leftover candy. 
Hey, it was my birthday.


If you don't make fun of me for my candy-passer-outer-attire, then I will tell you ALL about our secret getaway on Friday. You know you like my banana hat, anyways ;)

PS. Please excuse the photo quality. These were obviously taken before I became bloggerific. I know better now. Teehee.

OH my gosh too fun! I think there is nothing better than cabin parties with friends. We used to go to the mountains in Tennessee and have cabin parties, seriously so much fun!

A cabin in the middle of nowhere, costumes, and some of your closest friends - sounds like an amazing birthday to me! Of course, my bday is about 2 days before Halloween so I may be partial to the costumes. :p I also adore horses and little trick or treaters. :)

cabin parties ARE THE BEST! we used to cram like, 14people in a tiny cabin and basically, if you can find a space anywhere, that's where you're sleeping! and the booze..so.much.booze.
