Friday night, my sister and aunt came in town and all the girls went to dinner at Bounty on Broad. It was amazing! They do family style dining, so if you want the best bang for your buck, go with a group that you can share with. We ended up getting 4 or 5 vegetables and 3 different meats and all ate a little of everything. So. Good!
Saturday, I made the trek out to my parents' house to hang out with my nieces. It was lots of fun! And approximately 217 degrees so I stayed in the water the entire time! When we were finished swimming, I was getting ready in my parents' bathroom and I called Ansley in to play Bad Blood for her, because it is "her song." She walks in and says, "Oh! Why are you so beautiful?!" It melts my heart! Then Marlee comes in, takes one look at me and says, "How old are you? Shouldn't you be married?" From the mouths of babes...
I left my family on Saturday and went to a Christmas in July part with some people from church. So festive. And so much food! We watched National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation, because of course.
Monday was the start of my week off! I slept in (until 6:30 or 7) and got to go to the gym in the morning to lift. Great start to the day! Then I got a mani and pedi. So relaxing. Drank a mimosa and watched Insurgent, which was only fitting since I also saw Divergent at the NailBar. After that, I spent the rest of the day just hanging out with friends and doing a whole lot of nothing.
The pampering continued on Tuesday. I got an amazing massage that was super relaxing and then back over to my parents' house for some more pool time. A float with a cupholder and a good book. What more does a girl need?! It was great. Then I ran to the library for a few new books before going to Bible study.
Wednesday was my birthday! I ran hard and lifted heavy. Then went get my hair done. I was instructed not to sweat. Yeah, easier said than done when I get in my car and see this...
But then a friend said that she was down the street at a coffee shop studying so I met up with her for coffee and a cupcake and a study break for her. Can't go wrong with a Tomboy from Muddy's!
I planned a low key night. A friend suggested dinner and I was thinking something casual- possibly sushi. He later asked if I wanted Houston's or to try something different. Then he suggested Flight. Who am I to complain? It was incredible! I got the steak flight that included a regular beef filet, as well as elk and bison. Yum! And I got the flight of Duckhorn wine, because it's Duckhorn. Everything was so amazing! Including the company!
I think that my birthday should have been sponsored by Duckhorn Wines. This week, I had the chardonnay, pinot noir, paraduxx, merlot, and cabernet. They were all delicious, btw.
