My Mother's 29th birthday... again.

Mama decided she was turning 29 again this year ;)
so yesterday we celebrated her lovely birthday.
We opened presents in the office at home before heading out to dinner in Athens.
I LOVE gift-giving and I especially love surprised faces when opening gifts. 

  for dinner we planned to go to one of my favorite places to eat dinner, Casa Mia in Athens.

Well lo and behold the place went and CLOSED for good over the holiday. I'm talking, scraped the vinyl sign off the windows and everything. WHAT. THE. HECK?!
I literally ate there the last week of school.
and they had delicious food and amazing sangria.
not cool.

So we ended up at Speakeasy for some tapas. Definitely another great dinner place downtown. 
tapas are my new favorite.
I'm a major food lover, and so I love that you can order like 10 different things.. and get to try them all without:
A) Breaking the bank 
B) getting miserably full

It was a delicious dinner! and we had a wonderful time celebrating Mama's 45th 29th birthday. ;)

Looks like y'all had an amazing time! I will probably pretend I am a certain age once that certain age comes and goes, but she looks great for 45!! Tell her I said that! :)

Also, are you from Athens? I live about an hour or so away in Milledgeville and go to GCSU! Small world!
