My Birthday Weekend!

I had the most amazing birthday weekend! We spent the weekend out at Jeremy's Dads lake house. My Dad took Jer and I on a guided fishing trip on Saturday morning and then Saturday afternoon we had a few friends and family out to celebrate crossing over the 20's hill!

Jeremy was way too excited to wait to give me my bday present on Monday, so I got it on Friday! A Canon Rebel T2i and my MIL, SIL, & future BIL got me that adorable camera strap! My parents also gave me my present on Friday! My Mom got me some adorable shoes and my Daddy got me a guided fishing trip!

We headed to the lake house Friday afternoon to relax and get to bed early! Had to spend some time up on the deck and have a couple glasses of wine though!

My Momma & Daddy

Saturday morning we were up before the sun came up and watched the sun rise from the boat! It was stunning!

Jeremy got the award for smallest fish! Ha!
And I got the award for BIGGEST fish!!!

I caught a 50 lb catfish!!! It was crazy! All of the sudden I almost got pulled over the boat and my rod was bending in half. Our guide was convinced I was caught on the bottom of the lake so he took the rod from me to get it unstuck. After about 30 seconds he realized there was a fish attached! He gave the rod back to me and told me to reel as hard as I could!!! This fish was definitely stronger than me! My arms got so tired after about 10 minutes of trying to get this sucker in the boat! I finally gave in and handed my rod to Jeremy to finish up the job! At this point I was convinced that I had the Loch Ness Monster on my hook! It took Jeremy about 5 to 10 more minutes to get the beast in the boat!

I was in total shock! Talk about an adrenalin rush! Soooo much stinkin fun!!!

Me and my Dad also caught 2 pretty good sized hybrids!

All in all we caught about 42 fish! Mostly sand bass.

When we got back to the lakehouse my Momma had everything ready to have people over! I was so happy so many people could make it out since we kinda put everything together very last minute on Easter weekend! I had an absolute blast! Couldn't have asked for a better birthday!

My Beckett birthday Cake! Loved it! It was super yummy too!

He was our guard dog for the weekend!

Some of the girls up on the deck!

Can't believe the guys got in the water! Still a little too cold for me!

Me & Amanda!
The next morning we were TIRED! Beckett was being a total Momma's boy and wouldn't leave my side.

This is how I found him asleep while I was cleaning up. He's so silly!

Today was my actual birthday! Jeremy took care of me all day! He also took me for a couples message and made me dinner! It was a perfect weekend!

Tomorrow I start my new job! I can't wait, but I am so nervous, excited, and anxious all at the same time! I got this fortune in my fortune cookie today at lunch and I just had to share! I really hope it's right! I'm gonna need it this week!
