Thank you all for your sweet birthday wishes yesterday. I know Mr. Cornfake (ha!) appreciated every single one of them :) We had a really wonderful weekend and enjoyed some beautiful weather -- it's amazing how a little sunshine can change everything!
On Friday H and I had Italian sandwiches from our local sub shop: Vinnie's - their roast beef with pesto mayo is the BEST. Later that night I surprised h with tickets to Steppenwolf - we saw The Way West. Local tip if you call the theater the day of the show at 11AM you can get tickets for $20 each (more than half off the full price - limit of two).
We took advantage of the sunshine and went for a long bike ride on Saturday. We explored a new neighborhood (I spotted some lilacs!) and settled in for a while at a large park - h watched a rugby game and I finished reading The Husband's Secret. Later that day we stopped by Terry's Toffee (another local favorite shop) and bought gifts for Mother's Day (and picked up lemon toffee for our house!) Later that night we went out for Persian food with my parents and my father-in-law. It was wonderful to have everyone together!
On Sunday we went for a long walk and stopped by one of my favorite shops (R&R) and I picked up an astrology birthday calendar that I've wanted for a while. I made my Lemon, Zucchini and Artichoke pasta and we watched a few old episodes of Raising Hope (I am totally loving streaming Netflix!).
How was your weekend?
