Weekend Recap 4.23.17 …A Very Special Birthday With Lots of Fun

Whoa.. this past week was a long one!  I hope you all were able to get some much needed rest like I was yesterday.  I love days when I can just wake up without an alarm and move at my own pace.  It doesn’t happen often, but yesterday was one of those days and it just felt great.  

Last Wednesday I got to have a lunch date with my momma and we decided to go to First Watch.  I know I am in the minority here, but if I have to choose between breakfast and lunch I almost always choose lunch.  


After lunch, I headed to the airport for a quick business trip to Orlando for a conference.  We actually stayed in the hotel in the airport, which was pretty convenient since we were only there less than 24 hours.  


My husband sent me this snapchat at work with our doggies.  They are so lucky.  


I can’t pass up the chance to mention how amazing the Nashville Predators did last week against the Chicago Blackhawks.  


They are on fire and I sure hope this winning streak continues!!


Saturday morning I had an appointment for a much needed haircut.  I just trimmed it a bit and added a lot more layers throughout.  It feels so fresh and light!  My last haircut was last July… 😉


Then it was off to our friend’s baby’s first birthday party.  He was sooo cute destroying his little cake.  


Afterwards we were off to meet our friends at the Arrington Vineyards for a wine tasting to celebrate my husband’s 30 birthday! 


We love these two!!! 


The whole group!!!  


Unfortunately the weather was really rainy so we opted to stay inside most of the time we were there.  


Saturday night we had reservations at Fin & Pearl for dinner.  We have been wanting to try it for a while now so my husband’s birthday was the perfect excuse!


Our friends Rachael and Eric joined us!


Happy birthday sweet boy!!!  


My husband and these two ordered some oysters.  They are just too slimy for me.  🙂 

We got a few appetizers and all really enjoyed our meals too! 

A big chocolate cake for the birthday boy!!!


Afterwards we met up with a few more friends and my dad for another drink and then called it a night.  It was such a great weekend celebrating my husband with good friends!  I hope you all have a wonderful week!!!

  2. Do you prefer beer or wine?

  1. Okay before anything I just want to say how I made salmon for the first time this weekend and I instantly thought of you and all your salmon meals! Jeeze, now I know why you cook it so often, not only is it easy peasy but so delicious homemade too! Happy belated to your hubby!!!! Those oysters look amazing! I’m glad your hockey team is doing good, Bruins are doing okay….but BOO to chicago teams, my basketball team is playing against the chicago bulls right now.

    xo, JJ


  2. Yay–happy bday to your hubby! I had my baby shower this weekend and a birthday party on sunday–quite a celebratory weekend! I’m a chocolate gal but also love vanilla and also wine is my go-to!
