Birthday Weekend Highlights!

Phew! I need a weekend to recover from my weekend! We packed in a ton of fun this weekend celebrating my birthday early!

My weekend highlights included:

~Friday afternoon lunch with my teacher friends since we had another snow day

~MG bringing home a ton of my favorite snack foods (healthy was not happening) for my birthday weekend--probably not a good idea with our Dominican trip coming up in a few weeks (oops), but the man knows what I love :)
surprisingly, I've only eaten some of the pistachios at this point
~Double date dinner with one of our favorite couple friends
~Saturday morning visit from an electrician to do some work in our basement

~Cooper went to the groomer and now looks super handsome
this gets me all the time
~My bestie arrived!!!!

~Lunch and shopping with the bestie

~Got to take a "family" pic :)
Cooper doesn't look too sure about it lol
~Tried out a new restaurant in Old Town with MG and Genna before the rest of the birthday celebrations. All of our meals were insanely delicious--I was a bad blogger and didn't take pics of the food #hangingmyheadinshame

~Met up down the street with some of my friends for drinks at this really cool modern/rustic restaurant bar
~Indulged in two dirty martinis (and some wine shhh)...mmmm...

~This pretty Alex and Ani bracelet from Genna--Love!

~Saturday morning Starbucks run, and a free drink from the barista (not because it's my bday)

~Brunch with another one of our favorite couple friends--the food was delicious and the company was fab (I didn't take a pic of the food, but I did snap a pic of my brunch outfit)
Loft gray striped tunic, fleece lined navy leggings and my new brown boots from Christmas
~Enjoyed the weather and didn't need to wear a coat! Hallelujah!
~Said good bye to my best friend, but made plans for our next get together!

~Ran Sunday errands

~Drove with the sunroof open

~Thai food for dinner :)

~Watched Mockingjay

~Cooper snuggles

~Went to bed to recover from losing that hour, and to prepare for a loooooooong  regular length work week (no more snow days and delays!)

I honestly couldn't have asked for a better birthday weekend. It kinda works out that not all of my friends could come out on Saturday because now I get to have separate smaller birthday celebrations with everyone! 
I feel so loved and lucky to have such awesome friends in my life and a husband who spoils me :)
And now, it's back to work, for what looks like the first full week that we've had since before Christmas! At least I have a ton of fun memories to get me through it!
