I’ve always wish that my birthday was any time but February. On my 30th birthday, we got snowed in and our pipes froze so I couldn’t even take a hot shower. This year, though? This year was perfect! I must say, we’ve been having the best spring this February. It was just perfection the whole weekend.
Friday started out with a 4 mile run at the gym, followed by my free birthday smoothie. They even put a scoop of PB in there just for me.
When I got to work, I was so surprised at all the nice things my co-workers had done for me. I got flowers, K-cups, sriracha snack mix, tea, an Americano, a gas gift card, and spicy dark chocolate. The definitely know me well!
I left a couple hours early so I could hang out with Riley before our dinner date. He surprised me at home with strawberries and champagne, which we enjoyed on our brand-new sofa that FINALLY came. Don’t even get me started on the nightmare that was getting that thing delivered. It’s here, though, and it’s huge and comfy.
Then it was off to dinner! We had the most indulgent and delicious dinner at Fat Canary.
They printed up a special menu just for my birthday, which I thought was so awesome. Dinner was incredible and I’m pretty sure I gained 10 lbs, but it was worth it.
I had to work on Saturday, then mostly relaxed the rest of the day. I ended up going to bed super early Saturday night, which made me feel really old. I think every year older I turn I go to bed 30 minutes earlier.
Sunday was another fantastic day, which started with a super tough barre class. After class, I met up with my friend Tara for brunch. It was so nice outside we sat out on the patio and enjoyed some mimosas.
After mimosas, I treated myself to some shopping, courtesy of Christmas gift cards.
Then I spent some more time outside with Bella. She was thrilled to get out of the house and enjoy the sunshine.
And now we’re back to Monday! I actually have 3 straight weekends without work, so I’m pretty pumped about that. We’re nearing the home stretch of application season, though, so send me positive thoughts as I try not to pull my hair out.
Have a great Monday!
How was your weekend? What’d you do?
