I spent the weekend turning a year older, killing a phone, kayaking a river, eating LOTS of amazing food, and really just feeling loved and celebrated.
I am sorry if I don't get caught up on blogs as fast as I hope, but do know that I am thinking of you all....
So Sunday was my birthday. One of my BFFs, Emily (who called me called me "Skinny" when we first saw each other (we haven't seen each other in months) and totally made my weekend!!) came to visit me.
Myself, Emily, my brother, and two friends from college went kayaking around the Potomac River. So much fun!!
After that we went to a bar and had some drinks and some food (I had turkey sliders and 2 Abita Purple Haze beers). Then we went to my casa to get ready for dinner. We (myself, emily, my brother, his girlfriend Gina, my friend Evan, my coworkers Blake and Jen) went to Cafe St. Ex. Evan, Emily and I then finished off the night with wine at Cork.
All-in-all it was a perfect day (excepting ruining my cell phone and making it hard for people to figure out where in the itinerary we were, despite staying pretty much on target!).
Today, Emily and I went to get manicures/pedicures, get some fantastic food at Farmers & Fishers, do a little shopping at H&M, visit our friend's name on the National Law Enforcement Memorial, get some froyo, jump in the pool and then return Emily to the bus that would take her home.
I then went and had drinks/dinner with friends at a bar.
I spent a whole weekend not caring about calorie counts (but I kept my activity level up) knowing full well that tomorrow morning, I go nose to the grindstone.
[[EDIT: How's this for the cutest birthday greeting EVER!?!?!]]
