Happy Monday!!! We’re on our way to Lake George today for vacation!!!! Can I just say…WOOHOO!!!! So excited!!!
While I’m gone, Crista (my brother’s girlfriend), will be doing several guest posts for me on some super important topics, so be sure and show her some love.
I also want to thank everyone for all the birthday tweets and comments!!! I SO appreciate it!!!
I had a wonderfully marvelous weekend celebrating my birthday, spending time with family and spending time with my best friend, Abi, who stayed with us for a few days. Here’s a recap — as always, thanks SO much for hosting Katie!!
Marvelous is…this pear and blue cheese salad – bibb lettuce tossed with a light sherry vinaigrette, craisins, julienned pears, blue cheese, grape tomatoes and sprinkled with crunchy almond granola and grilled chicken.
Marvelous is…this huge tub of rubber duckeys! Seriously…it was awesome!
Marvelous is…my birthday dinner at my favorite restaurant!!! My pictures didn’t turn out too well, so I’ll just tell you what we had. We had calamari as an appetizer and for dinner I had these fabulous crab cakes with a grilled corn salad and steamed green beans dressed with oil and roasted almonds on the side. Justin got a surf and turf dish with probably the most delicious lobster tail ever, and a bulb of roasted garlic, which I ate…of course. Yum!!!
Marvelous is…my birthday gifts from Justin…a new camera and a MP3 player (in my fav color – purple). Soooooo exciting!!!!
Marvelous is…spending time with my best friend Abi and family at my parents’ house on Saturday.
Opening presents! Russ and Crista surprised me with this gorgeous infinity scarf (I have a
slight major obsession with scarves), which I’ve been eyeing for quite some time.

Marvelous is…some of my weekend eats.
Marvelous is…aside from packing for vacation, doing absolutely nothing pretty much all day and hanging out with Abi. It was GREAT!!!
The only not so marvelous thing that happened over the weekend was I somehow managed to hurt my foot. I think I hurt it Friday…I was walking around in heels on cobblestone and I tripped and twisted my foot. I guess that’s probably what did it. I’ve been icing it like crazy and trying to elevate it as much as possible. Keep your fingers crossed that it heals up quickly because we have a hike and lots of walking planned for Lake George. Ugh…such bad timing!!!
Do anything exciting over the weekend?
What is the best birthday gift you’ve received?
Are you a scarf fan?
