So this Friday was my Birthday! I hit the big 2-6!!! I kinda feel old now just because I am no longer in my "early twenties". I was super excited about this weekend because my husband took off Friday and he had planned a fun and romantic birthday for me and I had no clue what it was. As soon as the clock hit midnight on my birthday, he gave me my first present. It was the sweetest birthday poem ever. He has always written me poems every year since we have known each other, not just for my birthday but for anniversaries,Christmas, and Valentines Day and some times just because. So that was a great start to the day right there. Then that afternoon we set off for my big "surprise". I figured we were going to Austin (since we were driving in that direction). I WAS RIGHT!!!! He was taking me to Austin to spend the night and have an incredible date night!
As soon as we got to our hotel, (the Renaissance) we dropped off our stuff and went to "The Domain" to shop. It was so much fun just to stroll around and go into all of my favorite stores and not have to rush. After that we had the BEST MEAL OF MY LIFE at Flemings...
I didn't take any pictures of my food because I would have been a little embarrassed whipping out the camera and flashing pictures in the dark restaurant but I will just say it was AMAZING! I had the fillet minon with shrimp and horseradish mashed potatoes.
After dinner we went to go see "Source Code" at a place called Gold Class Cinemas. It is a really fancy movie theater where you sit in these huge reclining seats and have your own waiter. It was by far the BEST movie experience ever!
It was definitely a great surprise and the best Birthday I have ever had!
Sunday our whole family went to brunch to celebrate both my and my husbands birthday (his is 6 days after mine) We went to the Menger Hotel in Downtown San Antonio. It is the oldest hotel in the city and its absolutely beautiful! Here is the dining room...
After we ate we went out to the garden area. It was a beautiful day and a beautiful garden.
Notice her "first heels" ha! I found these little wedges and thought they were too cute!
I had such a wonderful Birthday weekend! I'm kinda sad it has to end but I'm trying to convince Bri that I need a whole Birthday month ha!
