Real Housewives of Orange County star Alexis Bellino is another year older this week as hubby Jim Bellino helped her enjoy turning 37. So how did they celebrate? 

Alexis hit the big 3-7 on January 19, and she posted a pic a few days later of herself and Jim out to dinner on January 22. "My birthday month continues...." Alexis captions the shot. "Jim, I love you with all my heart. Thank you for understanding me, riding the waves with me, and always supporting me."

"What is my birthday dessert? MANGOS!!!!!" she continues. "#fast2014 @freechapeloc #birthdaymonth #amireally37 #ugh #lol"

We love this cute photo of Alexis and Jim at the restaurant, and it's great that Jim is able to help Alexis have such a happy week.

But what did Alexis do on her actual day? Well, the night before her birthday, she posted a photo of a very beautiful present that she received from Jim: A new pair of Louboutins! "Here's what was in the box #oolala #myhubbyhasgoodtaste #earlybirthdaygift #birthdaymonth #lovemyman #louboutin #biancaspikes in #grenadine," she writes about the gift.

And on her birthday itself, she posted an adorable pic of herself and Jim with their kids. "Happy birthday month to me!!" she captions it. "What better way to start the day than everyone piling in mommy's bed!!! #ilovemyfamily #birthdaymonth." Aww! 

What do you think about how Alexis spent her birthday this year?
