Me Mimi Weekend

Weekend WrapUp–Birthday Edition


I hope everyone had a great weekend. My birthday was on Saturday and surprisingly and I really kept it low key….I’ll just say I was saving the “Turn Up” for next year when I turn 35. If you don’t get the “Turn Up” reference…don’t feel bad, being that I’m 34 I should probably refrain but y’all know me #classyratchet

Friday night, I was in an all around funky mood. You know that mood you get in when nothing is really wrong but you just want to be funky. As I was laying in the bed I had an epiphany that a trip to Target would make me feel better. At 8:30p I got out of the bed, headed out to my local Target and bought a bunch of nothing…wouldn’t you know, an instant pick me up!!


Well the mood lifter was short lived because Saturday I woke up with the same issues…moody and add indecisive because at that point I still wasn’t sure what I would be doing for my birthday. I finally put together a quick dinner with my girls from college at one of my favorite restaurants in the Virginia Highlands area of Atlanta. We had a great dinner at Murphy’s, we drank, ate and laughed hysterically. Reminds me that we need to get together more often.

My birthday dinner

A very classy birthday dinner amongst best friends.

I would say it was definitely a turn down from last year!!

Sunday, I woke up and did a little thrift and grocery shopping prior to taking Addison for an afternoon showing of Charlotte’s Web at the Alliance Theater. It was her first play and she did well up until the last 15 minutes. The play was only an hour but her little attention span is still very fickle.

How was your weekend? Anything exciting?!

    Happy Belated Birthday MiMi!
    Sometimes small gatherings are the best, I am glad some of your closest friends were able to enjoy dinner with you.
    Yes I know all about those funky moods, I am so happy to say I haven’t had one in a minute, I think I have been too busy running around to have time to be in a funk. I am glad you snapped out of it.
    Charlotte’s Web was so cute and hilarious to me, it was Devin first time going to the “Theatre” as well, he really enjoyed it.

    It’s your birthday not a holiday it’s your birthday…..Glad you got out and enjoyed your night. Hubs birthday is on the 19th he says he wants nothing but a job in his field so his degree won’t be wasted so I am paying for him to get his resume remixed and trying to do a surprise party somewhere.

    It looks like you enjoyed your birthday. You look great, not a day over 21! I’d love to take Madison to see the Charlotte’s Web play! It was a quiet weekend for us as we’re all getting over some type of illness.

    Happy belated birthday, seems like you had a lovely weekend after all. I love Murphy’s!! My birthday’s are usually very low key so this is awesome in my eyes. Love the pic of you two in the car, your hair looks fierce! Around these parts we attended 2 birthday parties over the weekend, did a little shopping and I made a cake for one of the parties! Was hectic but fun.

    Man that funky mood must be gong around. I was having a pretty bad case myself. then I did some online retail therapy and voila! Glad to hear you had a fun low key birthday. And once again Addison is winning all the cute awards.

    I’m glad your birthday turned out great! I don’t usually turn up (and I won’t this year), but I actually plan to celebrate my life here with my family and friends.

    Happy Birthday!
