Mark Zuckerberg has a lot of things to be happy about. In one week, Zuckerberg celebrated his birthday, launched the Facebook IPO and got married to his college sweetheart.

The Facebook CEO turned 28 on Monday May 14th but that was only the beginning to probably his best week in 2012.

Then on Friday May 18th, Zuckerberg took the behemoth social network public in one of the most anticipated IPOs in Wall Street history. The price started at $38 per share, peaked at $42 per share and ended the day at $38.23. That makes Zuckerberg worth about $20 billion.

And you think he would take the weekend to relax and enjoy. Maybe even celebrate his girlfriend having her own milestone, graduating from the University of California, San Francisco with a medical degree in pediatrics. But a birthday and IPO wasn't enough. A day after the historic Facebook stock offering, Zuckerberg wed his longtime girlfriend Priscilla Chan, 27, on Saturday May 19th. In a bit of irony, they told guests it was a party to celebrate Chan's graduation but when they arrived they were informed of the pending nuptials.

What else could have made this week even better for Mark Zuckerberg? Guest hosting on SNL?
