Birthdays, Birthdays!

This past weekend was full of birthday celebrations! We kicked off Friday night for Chelsea’s birthday with a little get-together at our friend Shirin’s house. Among pumpkin spice cookies, cupcakes and Mexican dip, we also took it back to the college days with some spiked orange Fanta punch. We like to keep it classy. Winking smile We then headed to Cape Fear Wine & Beer, our typical go-to spot on the weekends.

Since she moved away a couple months ago, this is just the second time Chelsea’s been back to Wilmington so it was nice to be able to celebrate her 25th with the group!

Ryan and I called it a night around 11:45 (we’re so old Sad smile) and headed home in order to hit the road early for Raleigh. Ryan’s sister-in-law, Sage, turns 27 this coming weekend so we celebrated a week early at the FSU/Duke game in Durham! Because Sage and Justin (Ryan’s brother) both graduated from FSU, they’re huge Noles fans and it was nice to be able to attend a game nearby.

Usually, I’d be pulling for Duke but since we sat on the third row of the 50 yard line behind the FSU bench, I figured I ought to look the part too. After a couple hours of tailgating, we walked through the beautiful Duke campus to watch FSU pummel Duke. Good thing we were wearing FSU gear, right?!

We then rounded out our trip in Raleigh with The Lion King 3D on Sunday afternoon. Though we thought it was only supposed to show in 3D in theaters for a couple weeks, we must have lucked out and hit the jackpot by catching it in its third week back in theaters. Just as good as I remember seeing as a kid! Oh, Simba (AKA Jonathan Taylor Thomas). Smile
