Super Bowl & Birthday Festivities

I feel like I had an entire weekend of celebrations. Saturday morning I went to brunch with a bunch of girlfriends. We met up at a bakery in down town Salt Lake called Tulie. It is actually right by where I lived when I was in college and it brought back so many memories being down there. It is on the same street I used to drive  up to go Trevor's house, which was basically every day :) haha I got the French toast and it was bomb. I have such a sweet friends and I love these ladies to death. Then Saturday night we went and saw a family friend perform as Gaston in Disney's Beauty and the Beast Broadway down town.


Every year my birthday lands around the same time of the Super Bowl. Back when Trevor and I were dating, he put together a huge birthday party/Super Bowl celebration "for me" haha. This has become a tradition, every year, us getting together with friends and enjoying the super bowl that includes a cake for me. It is a good thing I love football, because I don't mind it one bit! I have loved the Super Bowl parties over the years! (2009, 2011, 2013 - didn't take pictures some of the years! Boo on me.) The food is always great, as well as the company! It always seems that Trevor's friend Staton and his wife Billie host the party, they are such good sports to have us all over! I can't imagine the mess that needs cleaned after our get togethers. I also realized after going through the pics that I did an epic fail and only seemed to get pictures of the food? What? haha I need to be better about getting pics of the PEOPLE at the party! I used to be so good at it, but now I get caught up in all the fun and forget to capture those moments sometimes. Which is good, but it is also nice to have to look back on. Oh well.... the food was amazing!

Chris and Trevor deep frying some Chimichanga's... they were amazing! 
 
I made my famous, well famous in my household, quesadillas. It is one of my only talents in this life, making incredible quesadillas! haha
 
Chris and Mirelle's Cream Cheese JalapeƱo Poppers that I look forward to every year!
 
Trevor spent all afternoon making me this cake! It was scrumptious! It includes, condensed milk, peanut butter, candy bars, whip cream... you get the idea...

My actual birthday was a pretty typical day. Had some of my birthday cake for breakfast :) Cause why not? Went to work, where my boss bought our whole team lunch for my birthday! After work I went to my favorite gym class (Barre), and then Trevor and I went out to dinner at a steak house (which was heavenly!) followed up with some more of my favorite cake, angel food cake with whip cream and strawberries. Then it was presents and some t.v. watching. A pretty great day if you ask me! Thank you so much for all the birthday texts, calls, and wishes! I have so many great people in my life :)

  2. I think if my birthday landed on a major holiday like Christmas that would stink. But the superbowl? What's not to love about sharing a day with a great football game, funny commercials, and tons of food? Happy birthday Alycia!
