Today is my 23rd…I meannnn 33rd birthday!
As I’ve mentioned before, I’m not a huge birthday person when it comes to my own. But I will say, ushering in 33 was pretty fun.
The weekend started with a dentist appointment (not fun). But no cavities (fun?!). On Friday evening, Vishnu and I had dinner at Grange Hall Burger Bar. Vishnu really enjoyed his burger, while I, unfortunately, thought my otherwise amazing veggie burger was severely under seasoned. We did enjoy some delicious Parmesan waffle fries though!
On Saturday morning, I joined my coworker Lamia and her friends for the Women’s March on Chicago. You guys, it was the most amazing gathering of passionate, smart, energetic, and wonderful people – women, men, children. I can’t even explain how meaningful it was to be part of something so much greater than myself. The energy was truly contagious. I know this is the start of something very powerful. Watch out world, nasty women are on the rise!
Other signs I got a kick out of…
On Saturday evening, we had friends over for dinner (the make your own taco bar turned out great!). While we didn’t play any games this time around, we definitely talked a ton. So much stuff to discuss! Saturday was a late night…we didn’t go to bed until after 1:30. Who are we?!
Sunday started with a walk to Michigan Avenue to return a few things Vishnu bought over the holidays. We made it home just in time to watch the Falcons secure their spot in the SUPERBOWL (with a side of Ben & Jerry’s)!!! SO EXCITED!
Sunday ended on a high note as Vishnu (and I…kind of) finished up a DIY project for our bedroom. I married a pretty talented and crafty guy!
Looking back on the weekend, I feel like I ushered in 33 in the most perfect of ways. My wish for the rest of the year is lots and lots of self love/care/trust.
What did you get up to this weekend?
