Celebrations went great this year - it's fun having a birthday on a weekend! Things kicked off Thursday night with my family dinner at El Gran - I decided I wanted to have two smaller dinners instead of one big one so we did El Gran and then a pizza party on Sunday night
So excited to celebrate with this group
Leave it to Derek to request the sombrero
None other than a Kjy's cake
On Friday night I met Derek in the city after work for a little stay cation for the weekend- we walked around looking at the Christmas lights before a late dinner at McCormick and Schmidt's (good eating!) and a walk through Love Park
My actual birthday kicked off with sleeping in and breakfast in bed (what a fantastic husband) before lunch at my beloved Chili's with some chips and salsa of course!, the shops at Love Park, the Macy's Light Show and some shopping along Chestnut and Walnut Streets
The hotel was right by Rittenhouse Square so we walked over to see that tree
A break before heading back out for the night, the Eagles game and Pinterest
Derek's work contact at the hotel send up some birthday surprises - my favorite! Champagne, cupcakes and my husband -- couldn't have asked for much more!
Cheers to 26!
We tried out Ocean Prime for dinner and LOVED it - the best mac and cheese ever, great seafood and Derek had a great steak
Of course Derek would pick a hotel with animal print robes
and brunch at the Continental to finish off our birthday weekend stay cation
We finished the weekend Sunday night with a family pizza party at our house
