My birthday was extra special this year, thanks to Dave and our babies. I swear Dave gets more excited about my birthday than I do. He’s a real gem. Atlas was so excited to celebrate my birthday he woke up 3 hours earlier than normal so we took advantage of the situation and walked to Central Park so Ob & Marley could play off leash. It was a great (albeit early) start to the day!
After our walk, we brunched it up at an adorable restaurant called Sugar and Plum before heading to Momofuku’s to pick up my birthday cake.
Dave surprised me with an awesome birthday cake from Momofukus and I have been mowing that thing down like it’s my job. I’ll show you guys pictures of the cake one day…the pictures are currently on my camera and my camera is on the other side of the room…so, yep…I’m feeling that lazy tonight. You can judge. I judge myself.
Dave also gave me Heaven in a jar.
My big gift from Dave was so great, I literally jumped for joy. He got us fabulous seats to the Michael Buble concert this summer. A night out in NYC with the love of my life and some live music by Mr. MB sounds like just what the doctor ordered and I cannot wait! Seriously counting down the days!
Dave also sent me out for a much needed pedicure and manicure and then it was time for some shopping!
Don’t worry. I didn’t buy that hat. I know my limitations and sporting a fedora is one of them. Something about trying to rock that AND a diaper bag just doesn’t mix. But it was fun to try on and pretend for a second that I’m cool enough to pull that look off.
We concluded my birthday with a delicious Mexican dinner at one of our favorite spots.
After spending the majority of dinner wrestling my margarita out of Atlas’ hands (mom of the year), we headed home for movie night on the couch. It was a wonderfully relaxing birthday and I couldn’t have asked for more.
Thank you all for your sweet birthday wishes on the blog, on IG and on Facebook. You guys are the sweetest!
What is your ideal birthday gift? Pre-Atlas, I would have probably asked for shoes or some fancy-schmancy handbag, but now that I’m a mom a special date night out sounds spectacular! Quality time with my husband + a fun event + something to look forward to + a night where I don’t have to worry about being spit up on = perfect.
P.S. I just have to show you guys this photo because it is too cute not to share.
