That being said, I'm pretty sure it was all worth it considering how absolutely over-the-moon happy my little dude was this weekend! He had his friend party at Chuck E Cheese (the depths of hell for parents as we know it) and I'm pretty sure that even if he hadn't gotten a single present would have been thrilled with just that party. I mean, with a cake like this one, how could he not be ecstatic about his birthday?
Cakes By Stephanie honestly is a cake genius, check her out the next time you need a cake!
So, with the coolest cake ever, we had to let him have it at the coolest place on earth (see above for my thoughts on the place), Chuck E Cheese. But seriously, look how cute he was in the windy ticket booth!
So, with my nightmare and his dream-come-true over with, we whirled through the rest of the events of the weekend with family, friends and eating fairly well! I didn't, for the record, eat anything at CEC EXCEPT for the veggies from the veggie tray. Oh wait! I guess I did since I HAD to have a piece of cake! It's bad luck to not have cake on someone's birthday!
I weighed myself on Saturday morning and was 173.8 (I think that's what it was!) I did another little happy dance since I was pretty that that same number wouldn't be there come Monday morning! Aaaaaaand I was right! I ate really well this weekend, but didn't get my run in yesterday because of everything going on and because my treadmill is still sick so this morning the scale said 175.4 (I think?) Still down from last Monday by a few points so I'll take it, but definitely not where I wanted to be.
I need my treadmill back! I hate doing my long runs outside by myself! However, if it's not fixed after dinner tonight, I guess I'm gonna have to suck it up and just go because I'm not going to miss a run!
Here's a few more cute birthday pics, just for fun!
The birthday King on his throne with all of his bounty!
