Some of you may not know this, but I am a HUGE animal lover.
My main loves are golden retrievers, giraffes & dolphins.
and when I say “main loves” I mean severely obsessed,
and will usually start crying when I lay eyes on either of these…
Any type of baby animal will also cause me to start crying instantly.
But anyways, that’s not what this post is about.

This post is about my birthday and how it was the best day ever.
Shall we begin…?

I had seen a friend of mine go to this drive through safari a couple weeks before and I KNEW

that that was exactly where I wanted to spend my birthday.

So of course, Kyle being the charmer that he is, took off work and made it happen. 

It’s called Franklin Drive Thru Safari and it’s near College Station.

and I HIGHLY suggest you go.

We get there and of course the first thing I want to do is go see and feed the giraffes,

If you follow me on snapchat you basically spent the entire day with us lol


So, here are a few pictures from one of my favorite birthdays of all time…

I had the biggest and goofiest grin on my face the ENTIRE day.

After feeding the giraffes we drove around the safari and there were SO many different animals.

The zebras were so dang cute and the donkeys would sprint behind your car the entire time.

and of course there were emus/ostriches that I mostly took videos of…

those things are my worst nightmare…like they absolutely terrify me.

The kangaroos were SO cute and sweet! 

If I stuck my hand near the cage they would run over and just give me tons of kisses.

Kyle and I walked around for a bit before deciding to head back.

These pictures and my quick explanation of the day totally don’t do it justice.

It was one of the best and most fun days i’ve had in a REALLY long time.

We grabbed some food and headed home then decided to head to the gun range for a little bit.

And of course we ended this fantastic day with some netflix and chill.

(Game of thrones is our current obsession)

On Wednesday Kyle and I headed to the rodeo and met up with one of our favorite couples!

We got there a little early and they were running a little late,

Thankfully Tara and Jonathan were there so we met up with them and hung out

until Claire and her boyfriend got there! 

We grabbed a beer then walked around looking at all of the animals. 

These baby piglets were JUST born that day, how freaking cute are they?!?!

I could go to the rodeo every day if I had the chance, 

I’m really hoping we get to go at least one more time before it ends!

After looking at all the baby animals we headed to grab some food and go to our seats!

I, of course, got the nachos. Pretty sure they were gone within 3 minutes. 

After we finished eating Claire and Brett finally made it!

I met Claire in college and seriously adore her friendship. 

She’s one of the most amazing and sweetest girls you will ever meet, oh, and HILARIOUS.

We chatted and sang the night away, while the boys chatted and drank beer.

After a few beers I was dying for something sweet, so I’m sure you can guess what came next…

Funnel cakes are everything y’all. 

We had such a great time, the rodeo never seems to disappoint.
