Birthday Weekend~Part 2

I'm back again with the wrap up of my AH~MAZING birthday weekend.

After the Warrior Dash, John & I headed back to Tucson to meet up with some good friends of ours to stay here. We have been here once before and usually we don't go to resorts often, so when we do I LOVE IT!
I am usually a simple girl and can just stay at a hotel, but the perks of a resort are the poolside bar {insert big cheesy grin} and of course the pool with people who wait on ya! As soon as we got to the pool, I had to have my Captain & Coke PLUS chips with salsa & guacamole. YUMMY! Nothing like relaxing after a rough but fun morning.

{Wholly white girl on the left!!!}
After lounging by the pool we heading back to the room to get ready for dinner. We were going to the Cheesecake Factory. I hadn't been there in over 10 years so I had totally forgotten what their food tasted like. I was just wanting a piece of cheesecake. =]

Ordered our food, had the Cheesecake Factory workers sing me Happy Birthday, and ordered my Strawberry Cheesecake to~go since I was extremely exhausted and about to pass out at the table.

Got back to the room, passed on going to the jacuzzi, and went straight to bed!

Slept really good that night and woke up the next morning to head back home to get the kiddos. It is so nice to get away and have that alone parent time, but for me I am constantly thinking about my kids and wanting them to experience everything with us. Is that bad?

Any who, before we made it back to SV we stopped at the Park Mall and did a little shopping. I must say that I am just loving Old Navy and the way they remodeled their store. It seems like there is way more clothes and their style has changed a little. Very cute! I think a trip back up there in the near future is in order. We also went to see the movie African Cats. Very interesting I must say. 

And then we headed home. Picked up the kids who I missed dearly and started getting ready for the week.

I had an amazing birthday weekend and I thank my husband so very much! I love you baby!
