One Last Shebang

Hey bloggy people! How ya doin?

I’m POOPED. I’m usually not this tired on Mondays, but I just had a 14 hour day. Combine that with crap sleep the past two nights and you get one tired Paige.

Yesterday my mom, dad, brother, and SIL came over to celebrate my birthday. I had celebrated with everyone else except family!



Family portrait! (I took the picture:))

They came over around 5:00 and we had a few drinks and caught up. Well, I had water, thankyouverymuch.

Not before long, we headed out and were on our way to one of our favorite places ever…Lucca’s!! I’ve blogged about Lucca’s before, but one thing I’ll say: best. pizza. ever. Seriously.

So good I forgot to snap a picture:


That’s what’s left of the veggie pizza my mom and I shared. We both had a little under half of the medium veggie + extra tomatoes pizza. What I love about Lucca’s pizza is a. the CRUST and b. it’s not overly greasy. It’s the worst when a pizza just has a film of grease over it. Bleh.

We also got some spinach and artichoke dip – the chips are actually piece of fried pizza dough! Amazingly good.


And while most everyone else had beer, I had water:


I just can’t do two nights in a row!

So good. So fun.

Then we all headed back to our house for some BIRTHDAY CAKE!!


IMG_6107 It was good, but didn’t have enough chocolate. I kid 😉 It was AMAZING!




We cut everyone a “small” piece, but seriously, no matter how this cake was sliced, no piece could be considered “small:”


Small for a bigfoot!

Shortly after they all headed home, and Shane and I were left to relax and enjoy the rest of our night. AKA watch two episodes of 24 and then go to bed leaving me to do nothing but have nightmares of someone gutting me. Note to self: do NOT watch 24 directly before passing out.

This morning I got out of bed and got ready to head to the gym for an easy 4.5 miles. I usually take Monday’s as my rest day, but I decided to go ahead and go today since I had quite the indulgent weekend. Gotta have that balance! However, I probably should have taken the extra sleep. I had a few clients to train directly after work (including my first male client!) and now I am beat. In fact, I feel a tickle in the back of my throat that might be more than just tiredness. I REALLY hope I’m not catching something…Urgh.

Anyway, this is the last of the birthday posts! Normal posting (normal?) to resume tomorrow 😀

I hope you all had a fabulous Monday and an even better Tuesday!!!


What’s your favorite cake flavor? We have a cake-baker here in town that has the MOST amazing Butter Pecan cake EVER. Shane and I had it served at our homecoming wedding reception. Otherwise, chocolate all the way 😀

    Also, don’t watch “The Wrestler” directly before passing out… great movie, but I’m a pansy who spent all last night having nightmares about stapleguns…

  3. You take great pictures! I’m still working on that chocolate cake. You gave us too much to take home. My b’day cake of choice is zucinni bread from Fresh Market. Thank you for keeping me supplied.
    If you are coming down with something, it’s probably due to exhaustion. Take care. xoxo
