Over my birthday weekend my wonderful fiance spoiled me to the Nth degree! How I ever became so deserving of a guy like him is still beyond my comprehension. He is very aware that my parents enabled this spoiling many years ago and he intends to keep up with it! So in the weeks leading up to my birthday Chris offered to plan my day for me since it was a Saturday so I wouldn't have to work. I think he did it because he knows I'm such a planner/control freak he took particular joy in not telling me where we were going and what we were doing. In the morning we went to a delicious brunch at Cap City Diner with great friends Rob and Emily. Then he had scheduled a mani pedi for me in the afternoon along with ample napping (I'm a nap enthusiast) and getting ready time. We went to Cooper's Hawk Winery for dinner which had been on my list to try! I was so excited I could hardly contain myself!

After dinner we tried Gigi's Cupcakes which just opened by us a few months ago. I got a Birthday Surprise Cupcake with pink frosting and sprinkles, it was very festive! For those that don't know, I really love cake. So this trip to Gigi's was the perfect way to top off my birthday! After that we met up with wonderful friends at one of my favorite martini bars in the area.
So that was my birthday festivities in a nutshell(ish). Up next I've got some Lent Friendly dinners to share! I realize Lent is almost over but cut a blogger some slack, these recipes built up over my untimely account deactivation.
