Hello everyone! I am back! Well, actually, I’m soaking up the last few hours of my day off because the painful wake of reality will crush against me tomorrow morning.
Dramatic, I know :)
But before I move on from my birthday bliss (okay I might extend it into this weekend, sue me!), I wanted to share some highlights from the weekend, including food and presents!!!
Yes, photos from Saturday night haven’t rolled in yet (I’ll be looking into that tomorrow) but I was a good girl and behaved, so nothing scandalous.
I love good food and dining out, and Chicago is a great place to indulge in this. So I made a list of three places I wanted to dine out for my weekend: Longman & Eagle, Epic and Sunda. I wanted to go to places that have been on my “list” for a while and these won out!
And of course, the food was yummy at all three. No food porn from Longman but here is some from Epic and Sunda:
And then it was dessert time!!! I LOVE cake but last year was the last time I could have my childhood birthday cake because the bakery was closing :( But this year, dad surprised me with cupcakes from Sprinkles, look how cute this is!!!
For presents, I was a little TOO good to myself this year :) I say that I was making up from last year, when I got nada because…well I don’t know why.
So here’s what I got:
- Roomba!!! She’s here!! Be on the watchout for adorable videos coming up
- Dutch oven. It’s risotto time!
- Big Buddha bag (the teal one I posted on my wish list here)
- Mac iLife 09 update. I know, functional
I’m so happy with everything. And I was very fortunate to get a HUGE surprise from my dad:
So all in all, it was a great birthday weekend.
How was everyone else’s weekend? Do you like to treat yourself when it’s your birthday?
