Blue Ridge Birthday


Blue Ridge Grill is one of my favorite local restaurants.

While re-vamping my blog I found this post from August 2016, and I wanted to include it in my blog.  Instead of editing, I will just share our experience from his 31st birthday…

My husband celebrate his 31st birthday last weekend.  Since we have a 1 year old celebrations can be tricky, but we made it work to be able to enjoy alone time and family time.  We each took off a little early from work during the week to go see the new Jason Bourne movie while Layla was still in daycare.  It was a perfect choice for his birthday because we saw The Bourne Supremacy at the movies together when we were 18 year olds going on a date.  <3  Now 12 years late, they are still making Bourne movies!

Because I wanted to advance to the next level of tired mommy status — I fell asleep during the movie.  BUT, it was only for 10 minutes towards the end.  😉

After lunch, I took a few make up check selfies.  Lipstain, eye makeup, and foundation were still on point!  Enjoy my selfie collage below!
