So I know that I already gave you a birthday recap, but since my birthday was basically celebrated all weekend, here’s what you missed!
Woooo! Running books! For some reason everyone thinks I’m into running. No clue where they got that idea…
But seriously, I cannot wait until our Christmas vacation. There will be a permanent ass print in my couch from all the TV watching and book reading.
Saturday after the 5K Ugly Sweater Dash, I went Christmas tree hunting with Kyle’s family. His sister was home from NY, so it was fun family time. She got us all these adorable hats.
Mine’s a yeti. I can never remember what Kyle’s is supposed to be, because I think it looks like an ewok.
She also got me this popover pan!! She read my mind because I really wanted one after watching Giada make some on TV.
I also have to introduce you to the newest member of my family, Chester.
Yes, his name is Chester. You wouldn’t think it’s weird if you knew that I named my potted Christmas tree, Milton. NOW you think I’m weird.
As you know, I got tickets to see Cirque du Soleil from Kyle!!
Kyle spoils me. It was amazing. As are all cirque shows. Nothing like watching a cast of 30 with a combined body fat of 10% to make you feel inadequate. yeah, well…at least i can eat candy! ha. showed them…
After the show, we went over to the restaurant that Kyle’s brother works at (Mission Rock Resort). This is the second time we’ve been there- the first was with my high school friend.
As most of you know, I’m not a huge drinker. I’m a light weight and don’t like the taste of a lot of types of alcohol. Well kids, guess what? I found a drink that I do enjoy! Enter, the Dutch Mule (Nolet’s Gin, Cock n Bull Ginger Beer, lime, Fee Bros. bitters).
Dinner was amazing and we ate way too much. You already know that I forgot to take photos of my food, but I stole these from their website.
And they gave us a complimentary bread pudding for my birthday + a Marilyn Monroe version of Happy Birthday from my boyfriend and his brother. I-almost-peed-my-pants hysterical.
I have never tried bread pudding before, and honestly it has always sounded gross to me. Not this. I almost died it was so good. I actually wished I had skipped dinner and only eaten this and then I wouldn’t have shared with Kyle 😉
So, I would say, I had a pretty fan-freaking-tastic birthday! Do I really have to wait a whole year for the next one? Damn.
Sorry to sound like a broken record, but don’t forget to enter in my Road ID giveaway! Thursday is the last day!
Do you like bread pudding?
Have you read any of those books?
Do you name “weird” things?
