Weekend and Cirque Du Soleil!

What an awesome/busy weekend! To play catch up here's the gist. Thursday after work a group of my best girls got together for 'our' birthdays. Since we're all grown up now and lead our lives in many different directions the times we spend together are sadly dwindling. So for the past three- maybe four- years we've set up an evening in September to eat pizza, chit-chat, and celebrate the years worth of birthdays with a birthday cake :) It's a great time to really catch up on each others lives. 

For my birthday Hub took off Friday-  and told me to take off also- we spent the entire day together. We went to a great shopping mall about forty-five minutes from home.  I got to use my $100 Nordstrom gift card :) We had lunch at Coastal Flats. If you live around here (friends) I highly recommend eating there if you haven't already. This was our second time there and it is sooo good. Then Hub took me to buy practical clothing items at Victoria's Secret. I don't usually like to spend that much on those items...but he insisted :) Afterwards we picked up cupcakes from Cakelove, went home and watched a movie while thoroughly enjoying them.

Sorry I have no pictures of the above events

Saturday we met Hub's family for lunch at McCormick & Schmicks (boy was I spoiled this weekend- yum).

I really love this picture of my in-laws below.

Hub's grandmother also came!

After lunch went to see Cirque Du Soleil's show "Ovo". 

 It was jaw-dropping. 

This is the only picture I have inside. No photography allowed. Bummer!

If you have not seen one of their shows, you need to do so ASAP ;)  This particular show is about the world of insects. The producers are so clever, the costumes are outstanding, and the people (actor/actresses) are amazing. The whole show is so thrilling and entertaining. Everyone loved it- from my three year old nephew to something-aged grandmother! (disclosing for her privacy ;)

To top it off the weather was beautiful.

The sun was setting just as we left. A perfect end to the perfect day!

I'm so glad you got to use your gift card! Hope you had a wonderful birthday weekend!

And Cirque Du Soleil is coming to our city and I want to go SOO so bad. I've been once and it was incredible!

Cirque Du Soleil is so cool! We went to the Kooza show for my birthday this year. It was amazing.

It sounds like you had an amazing (spoiled! ha!) birthday weekend :) But hey, birthday girls are supposed to be spoiled right?? I'm so anxious to go see Cirque Du Soleil!! Everyone keeps giving me great reviews so I can't wait to go!

I am so jealous! I have never been to a circus (or a cirques if you will!) and I have wanted to go for some time now! Maybe if I am really nice to the hubby he'll take me ;)
