Weekend Rewind: The Birthdays 5/5-5/8

2011 May 9

Joe’s birthday was on Thursday, and mine is today, so we had a busy and celebratory weekend together, starting on Thursday. I feel as though the weekend requires more than one post, but I will do my best to condense!

Joe had a busy day on his birthday, with a long meeting at work. At least he looked good!

He got this excellent bulldog tie at the J.Crew outlet in Napa.

That evening, we went to DuMont for dinner, where we both got the brick roasted chicken. DELICIOUS!
Friday night, we headed to Broadway to see Arcadia, a Tom Stoppard play. I really liked the play, and Paul Giamotti was in the audience as well. Bonus NYC celebrity sighting!

We spent much of Saturday shopping in Manhattan for things to spruce up our apartment. We found this amazing pillow for the couch at West Elm, and I’m pretty excited about it.

We also snagged a new quilt and sheets for the bed. Banner day!!

For my birthday present, Joe surprised me with tickets to the New York City Ballet!!

It was really fun to get all dressed up and be fancy for the night. Joe even wore his fedora!

The inside of the theater at Lincoln Center. Joe explained that it’s designed to look like a jewel box, and the ballerinas are the jewels. Our seats were super close and the ballet was gorgeous (more details to come!)

Sunday morning, we picked up some flowers and herbs at the farmer’s market and Joe got a windowbox for the kitchen. Such a pretty pop of color!

Of course after a weekend full of decadent meals, we decided to skip dinner in favor of giant ice cream sundaes at Farmacy on Sunday night. It was a good decision.

I hope your weekends were as full of food and fun as mine was!

    Your weekend looks like it was so much fun! I love all of the changes you’ve made to the apartment, and that ice cream looks sooo sooo good.

    Happy belated birthday!
