I love birthday weeks (a lot) and I must admit that I woke up a little sad this morning when I realized I’d ahve to wait 368 more days till my next one 😦
That being said, this year’s involved some pretty good times.
Starting with a road trip up to Philly…
And a stop at FRIENDLY’S!!!
PARTYING IT UP AT JENNY B’S WEDDING: 9.5
Weddings are great for many things. Obviously celebrating someone else’s happiness is great, but reconnecting with old friends is also incredible! Had the chance to do that with several of my favorites from college, and enjoyed every minute of it.
-.5 because it’s sad to realize how great people are, and then leave the next day to never see them again. Or atleast not for a long time.
GETTING TO KEEP THE CENTERPIECE: 10!
Another advantage of having my birthday so close to a wedding is that usually they give away the centerpiece to whoever has the closest birthday. Lucky for me the centerpieces were BEAUTIFUL! I was pretty excited when Scott relayed the news…
CELEBRATING WITH THE FAMILY: 9
If only I weren’t so tired from the wedding celebrating that happened the night before…
DINNER AT MAGGIANO’S: 8
On my actual birthday the framily went out to one of my favorite restaurants to celebrate not only my birthday, but also Jay’s!!! Ever since college I’ve been a Maggiano’s addict, and love them even more now that they have whole grain pasta. Classic Italian style, it was a great combination of incredible food and fabulous company.
-1 because of how exhausted I was after eating all that filling food.
-1 all that food also meant I didn’t save any room for profiteroles- my favorite dessert EVER!
I wish you could hear the beautiful music Jay and I were playing behind the piano…
JAY WEARING PAUL’S GLASSES: 10!
Who knows how we got started trying on each other’s glasses, but as soon as I put on Paul’s I was shocked by my sudden lack of vision. Never in my life have I met someone with such horrible vision. I had no idea until I put on the glasses that blinded me. No matter how painful it was for me, it was totally worth it for the face we got out of Jay when he put them on. LOVE IT!
All in all another fabulous birthday 🙂
