My 31st Birthday Weekend!

Yesterday I turned 31, and I had an absolutely fantastic birthday weekend!!

Friday night, J kept asking me if I wanted to open my gifts, and I finally gave in.  He got me a very cool medal rack for my growing running medal collection - 
I guess he's getting tired of them hanging in the foyer -
THEN he got me what I REALLY wanted...the Garmin Forerunner 10!
And no...that's not my time...that's the sticker that comes on the watch...but maybe one day I will get that fast!

Saturday, I went to a couple of wineries with some friends.  The food, wine, and company were all wonderful.

They were filming a new reality TV show for Bravo at the winery while we were there.  It's called "Married to Medicine" and the women were having lunch there.  They walked right by our table while being filmed, and I snuck a picture of some of them through the window looking out to the patio where they were sitting.
It comes out in March, so I'll have to watch just to see if maybe my shoulder makes it onscreen.  :)
We made it back in time for the UGA/Auburn game.  A couple of friends came over with their pup, Henry, and he and Guinness had a ball playing together.  And...UGA is the SEC East Champions!  Fingers crossed that we don't embarrass ourselves when we play Alabama in a few weeks.

Sunday morning I drove out to the paintball field to support J and his paintball team - they were hosting a tournament to raise money for their team to participate in events, buy new jerseys, etc.  Afterward, I headed to the Gobble Wobble 5k - I will recap this tomorrow as I have another giveaway to post!

Monday morning, J and I drove up to my college town of Dahlonega, then hit up the outlets.  I met Sharon for lunch and then treated myself to a pedicure.  For dinner, J took me to Casa Nuova, an Italian restaurant I've been wanting to try for awhile.  It. Was. Amazing.  We had an app, each had an entree, and ordered creme brulee for dessert.  One of the waiters asked if we were celebrating anything, and when we told him it was my birthday, they brought over two shots of something very yummy and ANOTHER dessert - flan.
We were absolutely stuffed (and I was a little tipsy after wine and the shot).  I'll be having my leftover tortellini for lunch today - 
I'm looking forward at what the next year has in store for me...and (totally cheeseball moment here) next year my birthday will be on 11.12.13...how cool is that??

Until next time,
