I know. My birthday was almost a week ago. I should probably move on with my life like any other self-respecting adult. I swear I will after I fill y’all in on a few of my favorites from my “birthday week”. Wait. Am I too old for an entire week? Nah…
Travinia is probably one of the only chain restaurants that I actually love. Like love, love. Everything they have is perfect. My birthday dinner consisted of wine, bread with dipping oil, antipasto, crab cakes with spinach orzo, and scallops with artichoke-pesto risotto. And those are just the appetizers they offer. I need to be there right now.
Runner Up: Chick Fil-A waffle fries. I’m totally serious, but I do need Chick Fil-A sauce to dip them in. So, make sure you order extra if we ever go there together.
The Pine Ridge Chenin Blanc + Viognier is one of my all-time favorite wines. I love white blends in general, but man, this one is good. Bonus points is that it’s totally affordable. Also, can you tell I’m not a connoisseur? I legitimately don’t know how to describe a wine except for just saying “Yep. Pass me another glass.”
Runner Up: Everything else. What? Drinks are delicious and make life better. We all know it’s true.
My new camera is definitely my new favorite thing. It’s like a tiny little DSLR. Well, I mean, technically that’s exactly what it is. I got the Sony Nex-5T in white and I think it’s the most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen. Now I just need some lenses. I guess I’ll be waiting until April of next year for those.
Runner Up: Lightweight Kettlebells, for the win. I got two small, colorful ones from TJ Maxx, but I wish they had these adjustable kettlebells there. So cute. I just referred to kettlebells as cute. Who am I?
I wore these Aerosoles Brightora Leather T-Strap Wedge Sandals out for my birthday and I am now convinced they are the most comfortable wedges ever. They are definitely simple-looking, but they are so ridiculously padded that I want to wear them for the rest of my life.
Runner Up: These Carlos by Carlos Santana Kaila Wedge Sandals were also thrown into the birthday week rotation, but they are cuter than they are comfortable. Still easy to wear, but nothing like my grandma-like Aerosoles.
I will never tire of dorky themed circuits. This one is quick, effective, and requires no equipment. Obviously, it doesn’t have to be your birthday to complete it, so let me know if you try it out!
Runner Up: Chasing Maddux around the house. That kid is getting fast. It’s a problem.
Well, I better go. If I’m going to get my run in today, it needs to happen right this second. So, obviously, I’ll be reporting back tomorrow that it didn’t. 😉 Just kidding. I’m going to try.
