a food filled weekend

What an amazing weekend! I overindulged on food all weekend and am oh so happy for it. What better way to celebrate your birthday week than gain 5 pounds right?!
{Friday night date night. I wore my new ModCloth dress!)

{we went to one of my favorite restaurants, Muse. They have a fried manchego cheese salad that is amazing}

{my handsome date}

{my handsome date with his meal. We did NOT expect the whole fish. Ha!}
{we picked up my cookie cake Saturday!!!}
{sunday brunch at Hominy Grill with my folks & Guy. sooooo good}
{Guy's 'big nasty' biscuit - so delicious!}
{Did anyone see Man vs. Food Charleston? He ate this!}
{i'm a classic breakfast kind of gal. eggs, grits, bacon & toast. }
{one of my many gifts from my folks. a new hat for when I head up north next month}
It was a seriously amazing weekend. I wish I had gotten some pictures with my parents. It's so special to live so close where we can celebrate birthdays together.
Hope everyone has a great start to their week!

What a great birthday weekend! I would have laughed my butt off at that fish - but then I wouldn't have been able to eat it. I don't like when my food can look back at me!

That dress is adorable you look so cute!

And the whole fish... actually quite frightening.
Love the new hat... how far "up north" are you coming? Wisconsin?? Hmmm... you better let me know!!
