Birthday Bash

Well my birthday weekend has finally come to an end sadly. This year I was lucky enough to spend my birthday with my family. We packed up the car on Friday, my actual birthday, and headed towards Hagerstown, MD for the outlets. I got some excellent outlet shopping in and was really pleased. I also purchased my first Kate Spade purse and wallet. I was pretty excited! My mom picked out the bag which is a black hobo style with the cutest bow on the strap..I must snap a picture soon. And my wallet is a zip around in bright turquoise. I loved the color because it would be easy to find in a dark purse & has plenty of different spots for all my goodies. After shopping we headed over to my mother's hometown to meet up with the rest of the family. We went to Ichiban's which is a wonderful Japanese restaurant. The entertainment was hilarious and the food was delicious! I left a little too full. Saturday we rose bright and early. While everyone was getting ready Daddy and I snuck off to Panera for my birthday bagel and frapp. Then off we went to D.C.!! It was an easy drive and traffic wasn't too awful. The first stop we made was at Georgetown Cupcakes. If you watch TLC you know how fun this cute place is. We made sure we were towards the front of the line so we could receive our FREE secret cupcake. On that day the flavor was campside fire and it was the BEST cupcake I've ever consumed in my life!! Trust me, go get a Georgetown cupcake!

We devoured these in about 5 seconds. Nom nom nom!! Of course we got a dozen to bring home with us so the experience could last ;-)

After we placed our cupcakes in the car we perused around Georgetown. The shopping was amazing! I was an extremely happy birthday girl. I made it into Kate Spade to purchase a new iphone cover and some darling stationary. Then popped over into Vineyard Vines (my first time visiting the store) to purchase a shirt and cute little makeup bag. I of course had to stop into Dean & Delucas to purchase some French macarons. So incredibly yummy! After shopping around for a bit we explored Georgetown's campus. So beautiful! Definitely made me a little jealous. Then it was time for The Cheesecake Factory. I indulged in the four cheese pasta and cookie dough cheesecake. It was superb as always. We then shopped around the mall before heading home. Once we got back into town we joined some family friends for a little blues concert. Turns out the headlining band was a close friend of my parents, so we got the V.I.P treatment and hung out backstage. The night was topped off with lots of laughs and old fashioned frozen custard. Sunday we had breakfast at an old fashioned diner and then returned back home to Tennessee. My birthday was incredibly fun & I thank everyone for all of the well wishes. Hope everyone had a great weekend!!
