My ABSOLUTELY Amazing Birthday Celebration!

My 22nd birthday was on Tuesday this past week, but I wasn't going to get to be with my family and J at the same time because of work and our marriage class, so we celebrated last weekend! 

Every year my mom makes a wonderful meal in celebration for birthdays and this year was no different than the past! 

Mama Bird with her homemade scalloped potatoes
J with the beet, Cara Cara orange, and goat cheese salad! 
Dad helping mom serve the plates with salad...
Sorry for the ridiculous face he's making. He absolutely refused to smile. 
The table all set... What a pretty pink floral tablecloth you say? Why yes! And artichokes! 
J and Mama Bird serving the scalloped potatoes! 
The barbeque ran out of gas... So Bubba improvised by grilling on the stovetop!
Bub and his dear little lady, Sam.
My "It's Your Day... CELEBRATE!" Birthday girl plate (and the new strawberry Mike's Hard Lemonade -so tasty!)
It wouldn't be a food photo without the aerial shot!
My being drama birthday girl in my excitement over my cake. 
Check out that glorious thing... It was so tasty! Hummingbird cake, so perfect in so many ways!
Yep, it was amazing... All thanks to the fabulous cook, Mama Bird, and my adorable family (plus the never disappointing J!)
