A very sweet birthday weekend

For my birthday this year we didn't do anything crazy to celebrate, but I had some amazing lunch and dinner dates and felt completely spoiled.

My husband took me to one of our favorite restaurants, Bella Luna. They are a family owned and operated Italian restaurant and the food is absolutely to die for. I got their famous lasagna and of course their Chocolate Chip and Blueberry Bread Pudding. Oh my goooossssssssh.
My Mom took me to another one of my favorite restaurants called Grand Finale. Again I ate a delicious meal and then got dessert and felt completely spoiled!

A few of my girlfriends wanted to spoil me too...so I let them! 
And last, my new coworkers also surprised me by decorating my desk with balloons, streamers and banners and buying me a cake. I was so surprised and it made me feel so loved only 2 weeks in to my job. I'd say this birthday was a success. I now need to lay off eating any rich foods for at least a week!

The best part of a birthday is the food, followed by the company. Happy Birthday!
