Birthdays are a big deal in my world. I am a huge birthday diva and insist on celebrating a birthday week. Yeah, it happens.
Cory is no such diva.
But because it’s hard to celebrate a birthday on a Monday – darn that work thing – we did most of the celebrating this weekend 🙂
On Saturday morning, we ventured into DC and visited the Spy Museum!
Unfortunately, no pictures were allowed inside. Let me tell you, though – is a very huge, very cool museum.
We learned so much about spies! I’m considering dropping out of my counseling program and starting a career of espionage. How does Special Agent Lunchbox sound? 😉
After the spy museum, we stopped by our favorite DC fro-yo shop!
Cheesecake fro-yo for lunch makes for two very happy campers 😀
We spent the afternoon lounging around before getting dressed up for birthday surprise #2 – dinner at Texas de Brazil! I don’t know about you, but I love getting a little dolled up and going out to dinner.
We tried our best to play around with the self-timer just for this little blog 😉
We’re looking in to hiring a personal photographer 😉 We just don’t have the self-timer skills.
For those of you who are unfamiliar with Texas de Brazil, it’s literally a meat fest. Men walk around with huge skewers of meat like this
And just keep slicing you pieces until you say stop. I did not partake in the meat fest, as their “salad” bar is top notch. Salmon pieces, cheeses, breads, olives, pastas, veggies…
I mean, how many salad bars have you seen that look like this?
I made two trips during Cory’s meat extravaganza. While I didn’t take the meat-route, I did eat an alarming amount of cheese and bread. I really think the restaurant should invest in stretchers to roll people out of there. We were stuffed!
Now it’s back to reality for the next 8 hours before I head over to Cory’s for more birthday celebrations – his parents are coming to town!
Happy, happy birthday, Cory! I hope 25 is the best year yet!
Let’s chat – When’s YOUR birthday? Mine is October 5th!
