Blake's birthday was on Sunday, July 31st, but we celebrated starting Friday night and all through the weekend!
I got home from work with a beautiful birthday cake from Safeway:
We also went up to the rooftop and enjoyed the view. Washington DC must have realized it was a special day as well because we got a beautiful sunset:
After watching the sunset and contemplating what a beautiful neighborhood we live in, we headed back to the apartment for a little dinner-and-a-movie action.
|Murder by Death!|
On Saturday, Blake and I ate at a local place next door to us called Z Burger. It was really cheap and REALLY good, though all that grease made us super lethargic! Today was all about Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2!
Blake and I have been big Harry Potter fans from our tweens through today. I started reading HP in 6th grade when my science teacher read us a couple of the first chapters of the first book. Blake started in 7th grade. From then on it's been all the midnight book sales and movie tickets we could get to! For Christmas one year, I got a boxed HP Clue game (think 'Draco Malfoy in the Potions Class with Petrificus Totalus...) We even kind of look like the main characters in my humble opinion!:)
So after all that HP has meant to us all these years, the only picture I got of this momentous occasion is this one:
Anyway, Sunday, Blake's actual date of birth he got to open his presents! I went with a past and present theme in the presents.
We went to Ruby Tuesday's for dinner. This picture is very dark, but I think I prefer it that way because my eyes are half closed and I look weird.
We rounded out the birthday evening by watching Enemy of the State with one of my all-time faves... WILL SMITH!
Well that's it for Blake's birthday! It was a great weekend!
