Since my college days, I've celebrated my birthday every year with a keg party. This year was no different - Saturday night we had a bunch of friends over to our home, and apparently had too much fun to bother taking any pictures.
Sunday was my actual birthday. I spent all day in my pajamas watching football (yes, even when our friends came over!) and it was fantastic. I was actually born on Super Bowl Sunday - and as my mom shared on facebook, my dad was really glad that I was born in the morning :) It's no mystery where my love for that sport comes from!
Later that night, we got all dressed up and Bo took me to a celebratory dinner at Canoe. We heard so many good things about this restaurant and were glad to finally go.
We both thought it was amazing. I had lamb, and Bo had monk fish (it was a special). We shared our meals and the portions were large enough that I even got to enjoy leftovers the next day for lunch. As always, however, there was no leftover wine.
It's a little out of the way (as in, outside of our Virginia Highlands "bubble" that we prefer to never leave...) but totally worth it - we will definitely be coming back. Apparently in the spring when it's warmer they have really awesome happy hours and a live band at the outdoor bar along the river.Who wants to come with us?!
It was a great birthday weekend! 28 is off to a pretty good start so far :)
