Birthday Weekend

This weekend started off slowly. Wiki had to work rather late and so it was a Wendy's chili and Redd's Apple Ale kind of night for me. In front of the tv and catching up on DVR. And then when he came home, at 11:30 at night...he had all the makings of sundaes and so, at midnight we were on the couch and stuffing ourselves with ice cream, oreo crumbles and whip cream;)

Saturday we headed downtown so he could get a haircut at this old school barber shop with a new school feel. They serve beer and give him hot towel treatment. I guess as much as I treat myself...I get it. haha

While he was busy getting all taken care of,  I decided to head over to a local roof top bar and grab myself a drink on the perfectly sunny day. There were so many festivals going on downtown and it was a fantastic afternoon to just take it all in. 

When he was done, we headed to Chucks, a local burger bar, to grab some lunch. and I may have indulged in a dark chocolate cake milkshake complete with bourbon. and words can't do justice. 

We walked around a little bit more before driving up to Virginia to celebrate my grandfather's birthday. Saturday night we had a get together at some friends, complete with full on corn hole tournament. and too much Bold Rock Cider. 

Yesterday was the birthday party and it was full of too much food and family time. I got to love on my niece, I can't believe how big she is getting!!! Her hair is so red, love it!

After the party we headed back home to get ready for the week, The drive went by quickly as I read my newest library find, Beautiful Ruins, which takes place in Cinque Terra. Was an easy read. 

 how did your weekend go?
