Happy Birthday to Me!!!!

I know it's late but today is/was my birthday (July 27 for anyone reading this past midnight). I originally intended on posting a few mailday scans I had from Tuesday but I'll save that for tomorrow. Tonight I'm going to show you a few of the highlights from my amazing girlfriend.

First we went to one of my favorite Tex-Mex restaurants here in Houston called Esteban's. I love their fajitas and everything they make is amazing.

Then we went to see Captain America: The First Avenger in 3D. I am a big fan of comics so I was pumped to see this movie. I'm a Green Lantern fan but honestly I preferred this movie much more than the recent GL film. If you haven't seen Captain America yet go see it because it's awesome. 

My girlfriend also decided to indulge my card collecting habit by purchasing a few packs of 2011 Topps Series 2 from Target. I've included a few of the better cards from those packs below.

 Diamond Stars Josh Johnson

Adam Dunn Target Exclusive Red Diamond

 Bert Blyleven SP #570

Another interesting thing happened when she gave me the packs. She asked if she could open a few so I said of course. After opening them she told me she was addicted to the thrill of busting wax (couldn't care less about the cards) and wanted to help me open packs whenever I needed. It's pretty awesome that she's interested in my hobby at least somewhat now, ha.

I've saved the best gift for last. She bought me the shirt pictured below and it's going to be hard to top. I love it so much and I don't ever want to take it off. Ladies and gentlemen...
Yes that is an outline of Jeff Bagwell from Nike's Hair-itage line of shirts. It's so awesome I can't even explain it. The photo was taken with my iPhone and it doesn't do it justice. 

So there you have it, my awesome birthday has come to an end. I'll post again real soon with a recent mail day that was pretty spectacular. Hope everyone has a great week!
