It was a fabulous and sparkly birthday weekend, filled with my favorite people and favorite things!
On Friday, I tried a new-to-me yoga studio, Yoga Roots. I’m always a little nervous checking out a new studio, but considering that Yoga Roots had Alicia‘s stamp of approval, I figured I’d be perfectly happy there. And I was! From the challenging flow to the heated floor (how brilliant) to the awesome playlist, it was a great class!
Also on Friday, we attended a homecoming festival at Jeffrey’s school. There were food trucks (I loved my dinner from the Barrio truck) and music and plenty of fun to be had! It’s a great tradition and I love getting Jeffrey involved with his school!
Saturday evening, Matthew threw me a birthday party at Punch Bowl Social. This was a great place to meet up, with lots of things to see and do. From bowling to karaoke to tons of sports to watch to tasty food and drinks, there was something for everyone!
Our attentive server helped make sure we had plenty of tables and that we didn’t run out of libations and munchies (the chips and dip are so delish). And the fun, relaxed atmosphere made everyone feel comfortable!
I loved what a wide cross-section of my life was represented at the party, from someone I’ve known since kindergarten to friends I’ve met through activities with Jeffrey.
I am so honored that everyone spent their Saturday evening with me and am ridiculously touched by the sweet presents and notes too! As cliché as it sounds, having such great friends is the best birthday present a girl could ask for!
Sunday started with two of my favorite things: yoga and shopping! I went to my home studio, Harmony Yoga, for a great flow (that happened to be free with my birthday coupon)! When I left the studio, the Wandering Wardrobe truck was parked nearby and so I couldn’t resist stopping in and picking up a cute sweater and dress for my fall wardrobe. I always go a bit out of my comfort zone with their clothes and I never regret it!
Then we had dinner at my parents house, where my mom made my long-time favorite meal: roast beef with mushroom gravy, mashed potatoes, and carrots. I love fancy food, but nothing beats the comfort food standards! It was lovely to have time with family and have Jeffrey sing Happy Birthday to me!
I couldn’t have asked for a sparklier, more fun weekend! How was yours?
