Birthday Weekend

Friday and Saturday
This past weekend has been an absolute blast. As those of you know who saw Friday's post knew we had lots planned for this past weekend. The weather was perfect on Friday and Saturday which made it even that much better. My middle sister Brittany watched my boys for the day (on Friday) so I could enjoy a day out with the hubby. Thank you Sis, It was wonderful and we appreciate you so much!

Here was my weekend:

My weekend started out on Friday at lunch. My husband took me to the French Pantry for lunch. This place is only open Monday-Friday from 11-2 and always has a line out the door, so you can see how hard it is to get into. My husband who has only been there once before didn't know what he was going to get so as he reviewed the blackboard menu he decided on the Thai Chicken Salad. I however was going to get what I always get, the Tomato Bruchetta Salad with Goat Cheese. As we got up to the front of the line I noticed my favorite dessert sitting in the window calling my name, so I gave in and we got a piece of Farmers Cheesecake also known as Blueberry Cheese Tart. Which was amazing and after almost finishing it before my salad got to the table my husband and I agreed we could have ordered two pieces. Maybe next time, but one was all I needed that day! Once seated, a plate of piping hot bread, butter, and dipping oil was delivered to our table. Good gravy--it was delicious. Our entree's were terrific and exceeded my husbands expectations! See-- I knew it was going to be awesome and there is no more convincing him.

Then we headed to the Town Center to do a little shopping. It was a beautiful afternoon and I enjoyed just strolling along and going into stores I don't normally get to go into or stay long in because of the 2 boys I always have with me. For some reason they are fine walking but the minute you walk into a store they go bonkers. I guess that is just a boy for you.

After Shopping and looking for most of the afternoon we headed to dinner. Where we had reservation for 6:30 at B.B's. We enjoyed talking to the friends we met there and just taking our time for the evening. I think you feel the need to scarf down food when your children are around or you won't finish--so it was nice to take our time and relax at a meal.
After reviewing the nightly specials and looking at there normal menu I decided on a 1/2 Chicken with Nocchi and Spinach. My husband decided he would go a little lighter, since he was still full from lunch, and got the Grilled Chicken Sandwich.
Of course--who can go to B.B.'s and not get dessert? So--Yes--We got dessert. We ended up choosing the Bread Pudding with Ice Cream and the Oreo Mouse Pie. My Bread Pudding was served warm and tasted just what I hoped it would taste like. So as you can imagine I was stuffed and practically felt I needed to be rolled out the door. It was an awesome day and my husband couldn't have done a better job with it all.

Saturday I spent the morning helping a friend with a baby shower and then around 1:00 I headed home to quickly change into outside clothes for our Sunday School Class Party.
But wait-- Gus had another surprise. He surprised me with a Sheila's Birthday Cake. Yes--Another dessert. But it was amazing! It was a Strawberry cake with Strawberries in the cake and Cream Cheese Icing.
WOW...Right!
We enjoyed the afternoon playing in the Sun, talking to friends, and letting the kids run freely around the yard.

It was certainly a marvelous birthday....
