Husbands Birthday Weekend

I am actually doing a weekend update. Who am I? I haven't done one of these in awhile. But since it was my husbands birthday this weekend, I thought I should document it.

Friday after work, I actually went to the gym. Again, who am I? I hate working out on Fridays, but since we had a big birthday dinner for my MIL on Thursday and we were having a big birthday dinner for Rory on Saturday, I decided the gym would be my friend on a Friday. After working out, I grabbed a salad.

We were going to go to the oldest restaurant (not really, but close) in Reno, but when we showed up, they were only taking reservations. That was new to me since I have been going there for years and they never took reservations. So then we decided to go to a local brewery where I chose a salad again, but I did have a beer with it. Then we went to the pet shop to pick up food for Walter and headed home. Super easy and casual Friday night.
We did grab a picture before going in.

Saturday morning we woke up, got ready and took Rory to breakfast for his birthday. We went to an old favorite, Stonehouse where I had chicken sausage, eggs and potatoes. Rory got a hash and eggs while the girls ate pancakes and eggs and watched Frozen. After breakfast, we ran home to get the girls ready for dance class. We took the girls to class and spent the hour talking to other parents since the kids were in a different room working on their recital.

Then we dropped Rory off at home so he could have some time to himself and I took the girls to get a trim. They asked for Elsa braids and then I scooped up local sweaters for them since they were at a killer price.

We came home and the girls ate their lunch and then took a nap. We watched college basketball while they napped. Once they got up, they watched some Bambi before their grandparents came over. Rory and I got ready and then took a Lyft downtown.

We went to Roxy for martinis and then dinner there. This is where Rory's night got "wild". He started off with vodka, but drank so many other things. Ha.

For dinner, Rory had a massive steak with all the sides and I had their paela special which was really good.

After dinner, we walked around for awhile and then took another Lyft down to Chapel for drinks with our friends. My friend Mike (whose daughter is also in the girls dance class) had his birthday on Wednesday, so we all celebrated together. Rory had tequila shots and old fashions there. I stuck to vodka.

This was called Dealers Choice (which means call your liquor and they make you a drink)

We got home around 11:30 to relieve my in-laws and went straight to bed. I drank a bunch of water and stuck to vodka, so I felt great Sunday morning. Rory on the other hand, did not. Poor guy, but it was his birthday, so live it up!

I got the girls their breakfast, started doing some Sunday chores and then went out for some coffee for Rory and I. I finally got him out of the house at 11 am and we grabbed some bagels. Then we headed home. The girls took their naps while I cleaned and did grocery shopping. Once they got up from their naps, we walked down to the park to enjoy the nice weather. The girls were wearing their new sweaters.

You may recognize this logo from Garrett (from Becca's season of the Bachelorette) wearing the shirts on his Instagram. I have a bunch of things from Sommer's shop and now my girls own some stuff.

After the park, we walked home and I made dinner. We ate, cleaned up and then cuddled on the couch before bedtime. It was a pretty good weekend!
