Weekend update...

Friday. We went out Downtown to celebrate our friend Joe's birthday. We headed to the Moerlein Lager House for dinner. We had friend pickles and then I tried their B.E.S.T. pizza which had 2 sunny side up eggs on top of it. It was wonderful! After dinner we tried out Cincinnati's new Casino, the Horseshoe. It was packed and I was a little overwhelmed. I played the penny slots and lost and I was done.
Saturday. I road tripped to Kentucky with my Mom to celebrate my grandma's 87th birthday with her. All she asked for was a chocolate cake and lots of candy so my Aunt's put together a candy bar for her and she loved it! Not only was there cake and candy, but my uncle brought over some specialty cupcakes. I tried the Derby cupcake and it was incredible. It was so sweet being able to celebrate another birthday with my dear Mimi.
Sunday. Did some spring shopping with my 20% coupon at Kohl's (love me some Lauren Conrad), dressed in green and ate leftover corned beef.
How was your weekend???

Derby cupcake?! I love derby pie but I've never had a cupcake version! Yum!

Betty said...

Looks like such a fun weekend! And I get the same way in casinos...I get overwhelmed by all the noise/people...play on a few penny slots and call it good! Don't think gambling will ever be in my future. :)

Erin said...

Wow, your weekend sounds crazy busy! That is so cute you were able to see your mimi :) And who wouldn't want a bunch of sweets for their bday ;) I've never heard of an egg cooked on top of a pizza, but it looks good and doesn't sound too bad either! Hope you have a lovely Monday!
