{Birthday} Weekend Recap!

Yesterday was my birthday and I have to say that the whole weekend was a celebration!!  I had the best time with friends and family.

Friday

Derek had a gift card to the Chart House and we had never been.  It is right on the river so I was excited for the great view and some seafood!  Typical family photo was first on the agenda though…

It’s been a while since we have taken one of these in front of our fireplace.  And from Brutus’ face, he was not amused :)

This was our view from our table.  It was such a great evening to watch the boats and sunset!


Saturday

We spent Saturday morning and afternoon in the nursery.  We were organizing and putting together furniture.  Doing this kind of stuff makes me soooo excited!

Saturday night, we drove up to Columbus and met Derek’s family at Scioto Downs for the horse races.  Derek’s Dad is really into horse racing; however, I’ve never been to any races nor have I ever done any betting on them.  WELL, I was so shocked with how fun it was!!!  Call it beginners luck or birthday luck, I was winning most of every round that I bet.  Once I doubled my money, I called it quits.  I’ve never won when gambling before so, I was a happy girl.

(Look at that baby bump!) I definitely want to go check out Cincinnati’s horse racing now!


Sunday

Sunday morning was spent with our friends.  They were so sweet and met us at Taste of Belgium downtown to celebrate my birthday!!  The food did not disappoint as always.  Chicken & waffles is just so darn yummy!

Sunday afternoon, we went to the outlets for some deals.  I really wanted to treat myself to a purse and I found just what I was looking for at the Michael Kors outlet.  We did some shopping for Derek as well at Banana Republic.  It was a success!

After meeting my Mom & Step-Dad for pizza at Mellow Mushroom, we walked outside and every single window, including the sunroof, was down in our car….as in complete access to my brand new purse and all of Derek’s items from BR.  HOW IN THE WORLD DID THIS HAPPEN?  We all just stood around the car looking at each other wondering 1) why and how are all the windows rolled down and 2) thanking our lucky stars that nobody stole anything.

After doing some research, we found out that with Acuras and Hondas, if you tap the unlock button twice on your key fob and then hold it down, it rolls all your windows down and puts your sunroof back.  We are guessing it got squished in Derek’s pocket while eating.  Our minds’ were blown!! 
I just want to send A HUGE thank you to everyone for making my birthday so special.  I definitely felt the love :)

Hope you had a great weekend!


Linking up with Sami!

I have wished you happy birthday on Instagram but I want to do it one more time: Happy happy birthday! I am so glad that you had a wonderful time! I am sure the shopping and brunch with your friends was amazing!
And that is so crazy about your car! So glad everything turned out fine. One time I forgot to close the windows the windows of my car and then did not drive the car for 2 days. It was parked in a street where lots of people walked by but nobody stole the car. :)
