Friday Favorites: Birthday Celebrations

Happy Friday!! And happy June!

May ends with my husband’s birthday, and this past weekend we did a bit of celebrating.

A few months ago my husband mentioned that he has always wanted to have dinner on the top of a skyscraper and enjoy a nice meal while looking out over the city. Well … I tucked that idea away and decided to use it as a birthday surprise!

So, on Saturday we got all dressed up and enjoyed a tasty meal while looking out over the city.


It was super neat because the restaurant rotates slowly, so eventually you get to see whole city from every angle!!

We  ended up ordering the same thing for dinner and both thoroughly enjoyed our steaks, mashed potatoes, and veggies.


What is a birthday celebration without dessert!?!


I went for the peanut butter cheesecake. YUM!!! It was seriously so good! Peanut butter anything never disappoints!


We were enjoying ourselves so much that we decided to get some coffees to draw the evening out.  We wanted to stick around for as long as possible and just soak in the view 🙂



Valentine’s Day Weekend

imageAnother Valentine’s Day come and gone.

It was too fun with this weekend not only being Valentines day…

…But also a long weekend! YAY!

Which was THE BEST!!

That means the celebrations start early and last the entire weekend.

So, here is Valentine’s/Family Day weekend according to my camera roll 🙂

Friday after work my husband brought home these beautiful roses ❤ imageAnd then we settled in for a movie night and some heart shaped pizzas.imageimage

Saturday we headed out for brunch with my parents, the food was too good, which means there wasn’t a chance for pictures before we gobbled it all down.

Sunday. Valentine’s Day started with breakfast in bed made by my husband 🙂 Crepes and fresh berries.


It has been really nice considering its February, so we tried to fit in a bit of a walk in the afternoon… which didn’t last all that long because of the wind. So, we ended up at the mall and bought a few chocolates as a treat, and some yummy tea.image


Sunday night = Date night. We got all dressed up and headed to our absolute favorite restaurant.


…Which meant pizza again… because you can never have too much!! And of course some ‘valentines’ cheesecake to end the meal.


And today has been this: Rest. Chocolate macaroon tea (SO good). And an attempt at cross stitching… I’ll let you know how it goes.

Happy Monday!
