My Weekend in Mostly Pictures

Here I am the day after the accident. My birthday wasn't until Friday but BF can never wait to give me presents because he's adorable :)

Here is my birthday drink of choice. My favorite: the Gin and Tonic.

We did presents at my place when my parents got into town on Friday. My aunts got me pork and beef charts :)

My parents got BF beer pong gear for graduation.

I wanted cake on my birthday so we walked/I crutched down to Upper Crust for a mini carrot cake. It was awesome.

Saturday at 7am for the traditional pre-grad ceremony drink. Me, BF, Bloody Mary, and the ever present Gin and Tonic.

My parents are all sorts of awesome for joining me that early to drink.

Then it was off to Christian Michaels...

Ramos Fizz. Makes me feel like I've gone back in time. The first of the bartender's suggestions and an amazing drink.

My very first Gin Martini. He said it was served old fashioned with a little more vermouth than the original Martini. It was love at first sip.

My cap. US Bank was wonderful enough to give me a loan to fund my education. Without them I wouldn't have been able to finish school. And I wouldn't have made it to class without drinking Rockstar everyday :)

Then it was off to Johnnie's for drinks and dinner.

Muscovy Duck Skewer. Can you say AMAZING?!

The filet. Mostly gone :)

The bright red velvet cupcakes I made.

Sunday morning pre-grad bar. I had my first Bloody Mary. Solidified my dislike for vodka, but had a good peppery flavor.

To end the weekend of festivities we went to 5th Street Steakhouse. It's too bad they pair lobster with mashed potatoes. This restaurant bugs me.

PS: I might have drank my body weight in alcohol (on Saturday alone) which is why there's not more food. Sorry.
