Birthday Celebration!!

B's birthday party on Sat night was a success! 7 of us went to dinner at a BYOB Lebanese restaurant at 7 p.m. I brought a bottle of champagne, some red and some white wine. The hummus at this restaurant is amazing!! After dinner we went to a bar in our neighborhood where we met up with 25 other friends. Blair loved having everyone there, and I loved seeing a few people we hadn't seen in awhile. Overall, the night was a great success and he was a happy 30 year old!!

This is of one of my best friends from college, her brother, and her husband. They were in town for the weekend (from MI) and were able to make it to the party. SO fun to catch up!

I ordered an ice cream cake for B. He'd never had one before, and it was all he wanted. All our friends were so excited because they hadn't had one in years either. Way to go DQ!!

I decorated champagne glasses for everyone who went to dinner. On B's I wrote my birthday wish to him. They were a hit!

I got B a Garmin 305 for his marathon training. I also got him a book about marathoning that Some like it Hot posted about. She's been using it in her training, and I think B will be able to utilize it as well. He was thrilled with his gifts and can't wait to come back from TX and use the Garmin this weekend!! He thought about taking it down there but this is a crazy week for work, and he didn't think he'd have any time to run.

Hope you all had a great weekend!!

  1. Thanks for stopping by!

    The party looks like fun!

    I love the Harbor Springs area but haven't spent much time up there. I've spent a lot of time in Saugatuck, at a family cottage. I would love to get further up north, more often! YAY, another Chicago blogger! :-)
