Weekend Recap: More Birthday Fun

Hello lovelies! I hope you all had a great weekend! I had yet another wonderful one, though it was not long enough, as usual. I like to make my birthday last all month, so this weekend we did a little more birthday celebrating.

On Friday night we went out to dinner and then I came home and got to work on 2 cakes for the birthday dinner we were having the next night. I didn't NEED to make 2 cakes, but I wanted to make 2 cakes. So I did.

I baked a lemon cake and a chocolate cake. For the lemon cake I made a blueberry filling:

And the chocolate cake had peanut butter filling and chocolate buttercream. So basically a Reeses' Cup in cake form. 

Om nom nom

On Saturday morning I got up and worked on straightening the house, finishing the cakes, and went for a run, which was kind of a bad idea because it was about 100 degrees. Yikes, that was rough.

My pace kind of sucked but I'm blaming it on the heat. 

I also watched Gilmore Girls (We finally got Netflix and I am IN LOVE!) which was awesome. 

Saturday night it was time to party! We met our friends at Brio for a yummy Italian dinner and lots of fun! 

I had some fun with my new nail polish and bracelets I found at Nordstrom Rack! 

And we had to get the shot of me and Adam all dressed up and adorable: 

We had such a great time and it was so great to see everyone! 

Sunday morning we slept really late and then had brunch at a new spot. I had lemon crepes with berries and ricotta and they were SO good! 

Plus an iced latte that was awesomely strong and delicious. 

It was such a wonderful weekend, seeing our friends and spending time together! I am one blessed lady. 

How was your weekend? Did you eat all the food like I did?
