28 and Feeling Great

This weekend was my 28th birthday!

I kicked things off on Friday with drinks after work with one of my new co-workers. Afterward, The Pilot and I headed out to a Mexican restaurant in our neighborhood that I discovered last weekend. We ordered decadent sizzling fajitas and then headed home to watch TV.

Saturday, we woke up and started doing some stuff around the house before heading to Eastern Market for brunch. It had been ages since I'd been there for brunch and it definitely didn't disappoint. After the movie, we headed to E Street Cinemas to watch "The Imitation Game." It was so good! I absolutely loved it! Benedict Cumberbatch was incredible and I found the movie to be really well told.

After the movie, The Pilot and I headed to Sona Creamery for dinner. We had gone there for my birthday just after they opened last year and, while the cheese was amazing, the service was really disappointed. While we were eating, the snow really started coming down so we had a very snowy walk home!

Cheese is the way to my heart.
Sunday, after sleeping in, The Pilot made me some banana bread and then we put on 17 layers of clothes and headed out for 3 cold, windy miles around Capitol Hill. It was miserably cold and I definitely wasn't up for running any longer than that.

Mmm banana bread

We treated ourselves to salads at Sweetgreen after our run and then spent the rest of the day lounging, doing some stuff around the house. Oh...and this happened.

I had a guaranteed entry code that I had until February 28th to use. I was really unsure as to whether I wanted to run Cherry Blossom given my past history with the race (only running it once out of four times being registered), but I decided to give it ago. Holly is coming for the weekend so it'll be fun! We'll see what happens!

I'm so happy I have the day off today! I booked myself a massage for the afternoon and I'm excited to see what the rest of the day has in store!

If you're off today, I hope you enjoy your day too!
Happy Monday!
