How was your Memorial Day weekend? Today I decided it was time to share with you my story about THE BEST BIRTHDAY WEEKEND EVER!
In my last blog post you all know that I celebrated my birthday recently but what you didn't know was all the shenanigans that took place after that post was published!
If you don't read any more of this post, at least look at the pictures from my birthday event!
Linda, we really need to work on your race photo etiquette! :)
We all had a good time bantering back and forth and we even didn't finish last so that's cool. I think we finished around 51 or 52 minutes.
After the race, they had a drawing for about a billion "door" prizes and The Hubbo won a Oil Change and Car Wash from a local dealership. I won nothing. ::Insert Sad Music Here:: They clearly didn't know that it was my birthday weekend. Or didn't care. Either way...Rude! :)
Saturday Night Shenanigans!
When we all got there I let the cat out of the bag and told them we were doing a scavenger hunt around Tulsa! They had to collect the items or take pictures with the items and then meet up 2 hours later at the restaurant. There were even prizes up for grabs worth $90 for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place!
Once the two hour time limit was over, we met up at the restaurant and exchanged scavenger hunt stories. There were tall tales of fast driving, approaching strangers, stalking Sonic Car Hops, and running through a few local Wal-Marts all in the pursuit of fun and winning first place!
The best part about this was the dinner conversation. Even though not all my friends knew each other, this gave us plenty of common material to talk about and there was never a dull moment or lull in conversation at dinner. Seriously, the best!
Also in a couple months I hope my friends go through the pictures on their phones and look back and all the fun shenanigans of the night and get a little chuckle out of the ridiculous pictures they collected.

The After Party
Around midnight, after several hours of drinking and a full bottle of Jager later, we decided it was a good idea to bake cookies. Because, you know, of course it is!
Obviously they were super delicious!
Luckily we managed to pull that off with only minor burns on my behalf because I suck at taking things out of the oven and not letting hot things touch my skin even when alcohol isn't involved. Oh and the house is still standing. Whew!
At the end of the night, we managed to make sure the oven was off, the lights were off, the alarm was set before we all went to bed. I felt pretty good about my level of responsibility until the next morning when I realized I left the garage door open all night. Oops! Fail! Oh well, #YOLO!
