My Best Week Ever

So if you read my last post you know that I don't celebrate my Birthday but my Birthweek :). If you don't already do this its a must next time around! I have to say this has been the most amazing week I think I have ever had. Let me fill you in on some the festivities that started on Wednesday morning with my sweet sweet friend HEABS. First we hit up a free boot camp class at Lululemon. Here's us posing with the instructor...
Next we hit up Whole Foods where we had a run in with Keithey Poo (aka Keith Urban)...
Doesn't he look thrilled?

Then we sat down flustered with shaking and tried to eat our Hugh Jass (aka Huge Ass)....
we also tried to talk but still stunned from our run in we kept forgetting what we were saying :). After lunch Heather gave me the most awesomest massage ever!! Seriously Heabs, you are the best!! Amazing!! I love you!!

Then I went off to shop all greased up from my massage. I was every shops worst nightmare and thought for sure I would slid right in to that size 4!! haha Who was I kidding :).

On my actual Birthday (Thursday) I had another lunch date with a dear friend I met through blogging (seriously what would I do without you ladies?). Darling Kim had me over for a home cooked lunch and a play date with our kiddos. She cooked an amazing lunch for me! Here is just some of the yumminess...
(Roasted cauliflower and brussel sprouts, grilled chicken, butternut squash fries, salad)

My personal favorite part, lemon cake...
(we got excited and cut into it before Happy Birthday)
My slice...
When I got home from a fab lunch with Kim (thank you Kim!!) the man was already at home slaving away on dinner and dessert for me. He made grilled lamb chops with peaches and roasted veggies for dinner...
Dessert was a cookie topped brownie...
Honey thanks so much! I love you :)

My BFF Jenny also stopped by and brought me a homemade brownies...
Love her!

Then Gary Allan's daughter personally delivered our tickets to her fathers concert :) (she is my nieces best friend). This my favorite Gary Allan song and this one. You might have heard this one.

So we headed out for the concert. Making a stop at the world famous Tootsie's for a drink first...
(Being goofy)

Then we walked to the Ryman for the concert. Its a beautiful intimate venue...

OK I will stop smothering you with pics now and all the good times I have had so far this week. But the week is not over and tonight is my BIG and final Birthday bash in down town Nashville. Check back for more Birthday fun :)!!!!!

P.S. Don't forget about my generous Progresso giveaway. You have until Thursday.

CONFESSION OF THE DAY: I don't care what anyone says but having GOOD friends really makes life better. I have always had "friends" but in the last year or so I feel like I have made real friends. Friends who reciprocate the friendship. All thanks to my blog :) I am forever grateful for all of you!! Life is not complete without good friends!
