You win some, you lose some.
A recap of how I spent my birthday weekend...
WIN - Embracing your ageIn fact I ended up embracing a few extra years too. I accept that 30 is only a few years away & said why not just celebrate it now? So a win for my faux 30th birthday, complete with the episode of Friends when they all turn 30 & my own solo to Jay-Z's "30-something"
WIN - My favorite restaurantThey don't even have Isaac's in Pittsburgh so as soon as I saw the sign I started drooling, I had my high school graduation dinner here, I love it THAT much. It was like a trip down memory lane for my taste buds.
WIN - Baking all day with your girlfriendsWhen you're with your BFFs you could be happy doing anything. We ran errands, drank outside mid day, baked something spectacular, watched TV... & we had the best time doing everyday things.
LOSS - Making bets after a few beersI won't tell you the details... let's just say it involved a running start, a sore bum, & enough momentum to lose a shoe. A win for having such amazingly reflective shoes though.
WIN - A slice of heavenChocolate & Guiness cake. A layer of Amaretto cream. A layer of blackberry jam & marshmallow fluff. Buttercream icing. Are you drooling yet? I'll try to round up the recipes for you because this was possibly the best cake of my life. And we made it ourselves!
LOSS - Store bought doughYou'd think with all our baking escapades we could handle some additional pizza dough. Instead we opted for the cheap store bought one in hopes of making a specialty shape pizza. But the dough wouldn't even roll out. Total fail.
WIN - Delivered pizzaInstead of our pizza disaster we ended up with a ranch, beef, onion & fries topped pizza. We really should have just ordered that from the start.
LOSS - Not being able to make the weekend last forever
