FF | Birthdays

I love celebrating birthdays!
Especially for the ones I love most!
Mic's birthday was Tuesday, but I slowly started celebrating last Friday.
First, was a stop at Kroger for donuts and Starbucks.
He arrived home that evening to one of his favorite winter cocktails and homemade shrimp stir-fry.
 Vodka, 7up, splash of club soda, splash of Blue Curacao
 See my recipe here.
I am not a fan of flavored ice cream usually, but this stuff was really good!

Saturday, he worked all day so it was just a bowl of yummy ice cream at the end of the night.
Sunday, we hit up Texas Roadhouse for dinner with friends - no kids :)
Monday, the best boss ever (that would be Mic) said we were working from home.
I ran a few errands once he was done with work so he could enjoy a movie all by himself :)
The only child I married craves his alone time. I just don't understand it.
While running errands I discovered we got a Penn Station in the field!!!
I can't wait to go! There was one in the town that Mic and I worked in when we first started dating.
I love their fresh cut fries and steak sandwiches!
Thankfully it is across town enough that I won't be going all the time. My body will be thanking me for that!

That evening we headed over my in-laws for dinner and cake to celebrate family style.

By Tuesday I think Mic was tired of going out to dinner, but I wanted to be able to have a meal with just him and I.
We decided to try a new place called The Vault.
It is a wine bar of sorts that opened in an old bank.
I didn't want to look like a crazy person, so I held back from taking photos.
You can check it out on Facebook though.
I tried four wines for only $3, had a sample for $1, enjoyed some yummy food, and even came home with a bottle of wine :)
All in all it was a great night with my guy!

This weekend is the birthday for the other big guy in my dad!
Hoping to get a quick trip up north in to give him a big hug and say Happy Birthday!
And probably have a drink with him to celebrate ;) #keepinitreal

Another highlight from the week...freshly cut and colored/highlighted locks :)

So there you have it! Five or so good things for the week :)
