It was quite a week with my allergies taking me down for the count. I lost my voice and wasn’t able to really do much of anything huge in terms of working out. However, that wasn’t going to get in the way of me going to enjoy the weekend with my mother and sister, Alexis for my mom’s birthday!
We stayed at the Hyatt Regency at Inner Harbor where our view was awesome! This is a picture of the room:
Friday night we went out for dinner and drinks and then walked around the shops at inner harbor.
We gave mom her birthday presents from Kate Spade:
The hotel also gave us complimentary champagne and chocolate to wish my mom a happy birthday!
Saturday we went to this really cute place for breakfast in the city before we went to arundel mills to shop. And shop we did! I got a lot of great stuff for work and for our upcoming trip (my sister and I are going to Jamaica!)
My sister booked appointments for us all to get out hair done at Studio 921 where I actually (after some coaxing) got my hair cut. My hair was so long and in need of it so I had 5.5 inches cut off! Picture to follow.
For dinner, we went to Fogo de Chao which is a Brazilian Steakhouse. You flip this circular thing over from red (shown here) to green and that means bring on the meat! All kinds of meat come out and when you’re full or need a break you flip it back to red!
We had some cake brought out for mom to sing happy birthday to her:
And here is a picture of the three of us (I get my great genetics from my mother as you can see):
Sunday we went to this pub called James Joyce Pub where there was a live band playing. More and more people would sit down to watch them play. It was great! Here’s a snippet of them playing:
Unfortunately the weekends are always too short and we had to head back to get ready for the week. All in all I’m so happy I got to spend the weekend with two of my favorite people in the whole world.
