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. 😉
On his actual birthday, we went out to lunch with Layla in tow to Blue Ridge Grill. This is one of our favorite restaurants. My husband loves the fried shrimp platter. I love many things on the menu — including the wine! Although the crab cakes is one of my favorite entrees, I opted for the King Street Creole pasta. I had gotten it on Mother’s Day and enjoyed it again. It has chicken, shrimp, and sausage on penne pasta. We had ordered a chicken fingers kid’s meal for Layla, but she had no interest in the chicken. She devoured every piece of fruit, and we had to order a second helping of fruit. That girl loves her fruits and veggies.
After lunch, I took a few make up check selfies. Lipstain, eye makeup, and foundation were still on point! Enjoy my selfie collage below!
