Birthday Weekend Shenanigans

What an awesome birthday weekend! From my birthday on Friday to a relaxing Monday off, the weekend was absolute perfection.

On Friday, my friend Kate decorated my desk and my close friends treated me to lots of love and happy birthday wishes. Then, after taking Nash to the dog park, Josh and I headed into Boston for a surprise dinner at ... Mistral! It's a fantastic French restaurant in the South End and it was absolutely perfect. We shared carpaccio (our fave!) and I had the salmon and Josh had the sirloin - we talked about life and giggled the night away. Instead of dessert at the restaurant, we headed home to have ice cream and snuggle on the couch. We were in bed by 10 and it was the perfect low key way to welcome in the last year of my twenties.

On Saturday, I spent the day with my mother-in-law and sister-in-law shopping and then got surprised by a flower delivery from my best friend Kal and her husband and daughter. At night, we met Josh's mom and dad and his sister and her boyfriend at Abe and Louie's in Boston to celebrate Josh's dad's (and mom's and mine) birthday with the whole family. Dinner was delicious (omg short ribs) and dessert (OMG skillet cookie) was even more amazing. 

Sunday was spent winning week 6 in fantasy football and enjoying the return of the Walking Dead. Monday followed with tv catchup (Homeland and the Good Wife) and getting ready for another week at work. It was a relaxing day that we enjoyed to the fullest - including a trip to the park with the pup!

Did you have a great Columbus Day weekend? I hope you enjoyed yours as much as I enjoyed mine!
