Weekend Recap 6.13.16… Birthday Celebrations!

Good morning, guys! I hope you all had a fabulous weekend!  I am a little tired this morning after an early morning workout and lots of celebrating for my sister’s birthday this weekend.  We take birthdays pretty seriously over here. 😉 

Fortunately, I took quite a few pictures this weekend so I will fill you guys in on our fun weekend! 

My sister’s boyfriend set up a surprise dinner and night out for my sister.  My husband and I showed up to their apartment (she didn’t know we were coming) with some champagne and flowers and toasted to the birthday girl before heading downtown to dinner.  We had reservations at Dallas Fish Market, definitely a special occasion kind of place, but certainly one of our favorites! 

We made sure to snap a few pictures before heading in so we didn’t forget! 🙂 I wore my white dress that I actually wore to our rehearsal dinner last year, with the same nude wedges I wore as well. 🙂

Love these cuties!

They always give you a little appetizer taste of whatever they are making that day and a glass of champagne to cheers!  Cheers to the birthday girl!! 

The entire menu looked so good and I really had a hard time choosing what to get.  We started with the ahi tuna and a sushi roll (can’t remember the name).  They were both amazing!

I got the ahi tuna for me entree because I just can’t resist it when it is on the menu.  Those are mushrooms underneath… so so so good!  My sister got the swordfish and shared a few bites with me and it was probably the best swordfish I have ever tasted! 

The chef brought out a complementary dessert too!

We had such a blast at dinner, but little did my sister know, the night was far from over!

My sister’s boyfriend organized for all of my sister’s friends to be waiting at a nearby bar for us when we finished.  We casually strolled over to the bar and I don’t think my sister had a clue.  We went to The Joule, a fancy hotel downtown.  There is a speakeasy bar downstairs at the hotel called the Midnight Rambler.  

My sister was so surprised to see all of her friends downstairs at the bar waiting for her!  It was such a thoughtful idea by her boyfriend.

This bar is known for signature drinks so my sister suggested we get a champagne cocktail.  It was delicious.  My husband trying to play the piano…. 

To be continued…. 

Lots to do today so I will finish up the weekend recap tomorrow!! Have a wonderful day!

Questions:

  1. What did you do this weekend? 
  2. Do you like surprises? 
  3. Did you have any amazing meals this weekend?

  1. What a nice weekend! The ahi tuna sounds amazing! If I see ahi tuna on a menu there’s a really good chance I’m ordering it! I went to a dinner at a country club Saturday night and for dessert they had a HUGE bowl of oreo dirt topped with whipped cream and cherries! It was amazing!
