love handles

i was spoiled rotten last weekend and about 50,000 calories later, i'm excited to report back.

{altho if you aren't into food - or interested in a play by play of my life in general - this might be a really boring post.  like, uber- boring. i just re-read it and i was really bored and it was about me.}

anyhoot, kicked off the weekend with one of the top ten dining experiences of my lifetime.

craigie on main did not disappoint in any way shape or form.  enjoyed every last bite of the delectable 8 course tasting menu. {and accompanying libations. OBVS.}
if i had to choose a fave it would be the bourbon pecan ice cream tart with bacon chocolate crust and mexican chocolate.  yup, that totes happened to my mouth and i wor-shipped.

then dirties at mooo . . .

before crossing the street to dine at no. 9 park where i chose the . . .

followed by the. . .

and then the jasper hill farm cheese flight where i became reacquainted with this deliciousness.

then we took the complimentary lexus service from XV beacon {stay here if  you have the opp} to the neil diamond concert.

live. for. neil.
{and a very fitting anniversary activity seeing as i serenaded horseface to 'forever in blue jeans' on our wedding day.}
the spry 71 years young neil dominated the stage with all the classics.

of course we couldn't end the night after neil's 27 encore renditions of sweet caroline.
we headed out to the bars for LW's surprise 30th.  happy happy, LW!

then MORE food - this might be my fave part of XV beacon- they have late night 'zza!

woke up hungovah {obvs} next to my hubs of seven years.  that part made the hangover better.  that part actually makes everything better.
hey horseface, i really like you a lot.
{but please don't bundle my birthday, Christmas and anni gifts ever again.}

oh wait, there's was one more miel on our way out of town {puntastic and delish} - my fave brunch menu item.


special shout-out to mimi who not only birthed the love of my life, but also watched our girlies {one of which became sickie while we were gone} 
BIG thanks.
