Happy Birthday to Me!

I love my birthday. Especially this year, because for the first time in my adult life I did not have to work on my actual birthday, and it was not during busy season crunch time.

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 :)


  1. I want to go! Let's hang out in the VaHi bubble soon!

  2. Okay, the keg party sounds exhausting, but I'm totally jealous of your dinner out. What fun! Happy belated birthday.


I love hearing from you! Thanks for commenting :)
