Our friends Buckley & Shannon had us over for dinner on Tuesday & were so sweet to buy John a birthday cake!
This? Is a ridiculous amount of fur.
Hamburger cake! I was going to make hamburger cupcakes, but knew I wouldn't have time so my friend Lauren saved the day by telling me that Publix makes a hamburger cake and voila!
Hilarious purple ape from John McCauley.

John & I got Indian take-out & watched two week's worth of recorded shows. I know, thrilling.
I got up early & ran 8 miles with Jaime & Cara. It was cold, it was wet & it was FAR, but I ran the whole 8 miles. I did it without really any trouble. My knees were fine. My feet started to ache a little in the last mile, but overall, the run felt good. We rewarded ourselves with Star Bagel afterwards, then I spent the rest of the day getting ready for John's birthday party.
John's birthday was last Tuesday, so on Saturday, we invited a group of his friends over for meat snacks, music, & hourly wardrobe changes. Thanks to everyone for coming. John had a blast. In fact, as he was eating a little more hamburger cake before bed, he said that this year's party was the best. So, thank you!
Since I ran on Saturday, I kind of had the day off on Sunday. Of course, we treated ourselves to Cracker Barrel for brunch (thanks, Bairs!) & then spent a good majority of the day re-cleaning the house. Why do I even bother cleaning before parties? It's such a waste of time!
