Weekend Recap {{Dirty Thirty Fun}}

The past few days have been a whirlwind! Thank you guys for all the awesome birthday love here and on Instagram! I had a relaxing birthday, filled with family and friends... and just a tiny bit of booze :) 

On Thursday, my bestie Jen went and got her first tattoo! She made a bet with herself that if the Royals ever won the World Series she would get a KC tattoo. Well, nobody made her do it, but she totally went and got a KC logo! I have to say, I called her a puss more than once. Hence, the shut up and don't take photos picture. I'm a good bestie. Afterwards, we had to go to happy hour so she could drink away the pain. 

On Friday, we had a normal day. Gabriel came and visited me at work for a bit. Then we went out for margs after work. The usual. On Saturday, we got pretty and went to Ra Sushi. We'd never been there before and I have to say, the food was good, but the service was only so/so. 

I love to drink Sapporo or Kirin when I have sushi and the server came back and asked did I know it was a big bottle and did I want a glass. Nah, girl I'll just drink straight from the 40oz. And yes, I can read it's a 22oz beer. Which is actually less than 2 beers, just saying.  

 We like to order a good variety of "junk food" sushi and straight up raw fish. I love it all!

There is an ice skating rink outside the restaurant, so we went and watched people busting their asses on the cold ice for a bit. Just being all romantical and shit.
Let's get to the good stuff. The gifts. Gabriel bought me purple roses, the sweetest card, and my fave perfume. If you've never tried Bond No. 9, you should! My absolute favorite is Bond No.9 Central Park West , it has narcissus mingled with tangy ylang ylang and a pinch of piquant pepper. A beckoning white-petal mélange— orris, jasmine, and linden—and majestic gardenia. I don't know what most of that means, but I do know it smell amazing! 

 On Sunday, which was my actual birthday, we went to The Bristol for brunch. They have the BEST brunch! My mom made me a whore in a drawer cake for my dirty 30, which made me immediately think of Nadine who has a #inthedrawer instagram challenge going on!

I didn't get too fancy for brunch, but I get down on the mimosas and lobster mac-n-cheese! Calories don't count on your birthday :) Jen ended up coming back to the house (as she only lives 5 doors down) and finishing a bottle of bubbly white after brunch... I ended up asleep in bed at 3pm, then back up again at 4:30. Day drinking is the best.

More gifts! My parents gave me a Royals gift extravaganza. My mom had a fleece blanket with tons of our photos from Post-Season on it, a Royals mini tree, car magnets/decals, a 2016 desk calendar, and a SCRAPBOOK! They gave me the same scrapbook last year too, which I love. It has all the special articles from the Kansas City Star in it. 

The Bond No.9 perfume comes in the cutest bottles and with fun bracelets. I actually first picked the scent based on the bottle, then ended up loving the scent. My Uncle and his GF gave me the cutest necklace, I can't to wear it. I also took some advice from Kathy and decided I needed to treat myself for my birthday. I've been wanting a rose gold watch, so I went and picked one up from Kohl's for less than $12 after all the sales, coupons, and Kohl's rewards I had. How could I not treat myself for that price?!

I hope you all had a great weekend too!
