Weekend Recap

Hi my Lovelies! I am TIRED! I had such a fabulous weekend - the only thing missing was my family and friends from back home. But I am incredibly grateful that my dear b.f. planned some amazing events for me and really, I hardly had time to think about missing anyone!!

After our amazing couple's massage we had very little time before our dinner reservations at Gyu Kaku, a Japanese BBQ place. So we rushed home to get ready and then back out again to the restaurant. If you've never been to a place where you grill your own food, you should definitely try it out! It was so much fun to cook at your own table!



You'll have to forgive me because I completely forgot to take any pictures Saturday night when we went to eat for my actual birthday. I did however, get a picture of my really cute birthday cake!



You probably won't believe this, but I am a huge fan of the Fast and Furious movies. Seriously. So when the latest one came out, of course I dragged the bf to see it with me on opening night. Okay, I'm kinda embarassed I just admitted that to 318 of you :)

And you may also know that my initials are not S.H. This is a funny little tidbit - the bf and I were picking on each other one night and he was saying that one minute I was cranky and the next I was all lovey-dovey. He nicknamed me B.P. for bi-polar (I'm not in any way making a joke of people that do have this disease. I know several people who do, including family members). So I decided to make him feel bad for being mean to me by being nice and calling him S.H. for Sweetheart. However, there is another less friendly name that S.H. could stand for and that is what he thought I meant! Needless to say, he didn't believe I really meant Sweetheart (even though I did!!) and decided to put it on my cake. Cute :)

On Sunday we had a lovely time at church. It was our first time to the early service and we enjoyed it much more than the later, more contemporary service. It's amazing how a sermon can speak directly to your heart and that is what Sunday's sermon did with me. Everything the Pastor spoke about was relevant to my life and what I'm going through right now.

Then last night, my bf's sister Danielle took us to eat at The Cheesecake Factory. Delicious!





Needless to say, I have had a lot to eat the past 3 days. My jeans are a *wee* bit tight today, but it was all worth it! I'm not sure my WW leader will think the same though...

I'll be back later with an award to share!

Glad you had such a great birthday! ;-) looks like fun - I heard the new Fast and FUrious movie was good . . . I never saw "Tokyo Drift" but I enjoyed the first movie, despite the atrocious acting by Paul Walker
