Birthday season officially starts for our family in March with my Mom's Birthday. April is my Dad's Birthday (along with mine) then it really picks up in May with Mj's Birthday, my sister's Birthday and Mother's Day all within a week of each other. I'm usually on a shopping frenzy in April for myself and then my car registration is due in May so it's usually a pretty heavy load on the budget. It's basically like Christmas in May.

Mj's B Day was 2 weeks ago on May 2nd and he didn't want for much. He never does. Last year I pushed it because it was a milestone birthday but this year I let him be. It was a Wednesday, he had tons of homework to do and he had a Vegas trip with his buddies that coming weekend. His actual birthday was pretty much business as usual. Work and the gym. I came home and gave him his presents and we ate Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwiches for dinner. He didn't even want me to make him a cake. Probably because I suck at baking and if there is any good cake to be made he's better off doing it himself. I got him some delicious bundtini's from Nothing Bundt Cakes. They come in full bundt cake size, medium size bundlets and then the little bundtini's. They are so moist and delicious. I ate one even though I wanted more and the remaining five were all his.

Sunday we all met up at my sister's house to celebrate her Birthday and Mother's Day. My sister sort of gets a raw deal in a way because her Birthday is May 9th so it's either on or around Mother's Day and especially now that she is a mother we pretty much have to lump her Birthday into one celebration with Mother's Day on the weekend. We had a good time. We went out to an early dinner at a place of her choice to eat then we had cake and ice cream back at her house. Next up is Father's Day in June then my little sis's Birthday is in August.

This has absolutely nothing to do with Birthday's or family holidays but last Friday Mj and I went on another Groupon Burger date. This time it was La Jolla Brew House. It's kind of a dive but the staff there is so friendly and have you noticed that some of the best food often comes out of dive's? We had 1/2 lb Burgers, Fries, Beer and a dessert to split all for $18. Can't beat that. Gosh I love Groupon! That burger was so big I could barely figure out a way to get my mouth around it even after it was cut in half. It was a perfect way to relax and stuff my face after a long and exhausting work week.
