Weekend: Birthday Dinner & Christmas Clean-up

Happy Monday! (?)

Who likes Mondays, anyway? Let’s look back at this past weekend instead!

Friday night was my favorite kind of Friday: A lazy night in, going to bed early to rest up for a long run Saturday morning.

…Which didn’t happen, thanks to lots of freezing rain overnight. I spent Saturday indoors, working on some blog stuff ‘til after lunchtime. I also downloaded lots of new tunes for a new workout playlist—keep an eye out, I’ll be posting it soon!

Matt and I settled in to watch more Boardwalk Empire for an hour or two, then I got myself prettied up and Matt took me out for an early birthday dinner! (Psst, it’s actually tomorrow.)

We went to a little old-fashioned supper club restaurant nearby. Youngest people there by a good 30 years, but that’s how we roll.

I happily indulged and got a filet + twice baked potato. Glass of vino on the side.

A lil birthday dinner!

Mmm, birthday dinner.

So yummy! Alas, too full for dessert.

When we got home, we popped some champagne and had a glass (or two).

Happy {early} birthday to me!

Matt watched some hockey while I worked on our wedding Save the Date postcards, which I’d like to get sent out this month. They are turning out so well, I can’t wait to show them off! The perfect mix of fun/quasi-vintage/us. Now, to just settle on the image to use, we are so torn…

Sunday morning, I got up early to meet some running club friends to get my long run in. It was still pretty icy out in the roads, and we had to run carefully. The run was good, but I ended up falling on my butt (after we were done, just walking) but I must have enough extra padding there, because I feel fine today. 😉

Matt and I spent the rest of our Sunday doing TONS of laundry and finally taking down all of our Christmas decorations.

Note to self: Next year, take the Christmas tree down before it’s totally dead and drops all its needles everywhere.

Oh Christmas Tree... farewell.

Oh Christmas Tree… farewell.

I spent the rest of the evening curled up on the couch with another glass of champagne (couldn’t let the rest of the bottle go to waste!) and reading a book. It’s an easy read, and interesting to think about what would happen. Nice way to end the weekend!

    • Thank you! I just saw your other comment, that is awesome you are going the same time, ha! We def need to get together before and you can fill me in on where to go. 🙂 We haven’t booked our hotel yet because we’re not even sure the best part of Phoenix to stay in. I’ll send ya a message soon so we can get together and chat!

  1. Yes! Please do. I am deciding on a hotel too right now. There are definite areas you DO NOT want to be in. Give me a shout and we can meet up!
