Friday night, N and I had date night at Dante in Tremont. If you haven't been there, you should definitely check it out- the Pasta Carbonara is TO.DIE.FOR! Seriously, it is so so so so SO good!! N ordered the tasting as an appetizer, and I ordered the appetizer as my entree!! We also tried the shrimp and calamari (so deliciously salty), the cheesy polenta, the bolognese, and N had the duck. What an incredibly perfect meal, although we were so full that we didn't have room for dessert.
Saturday, I headed over to Saks where I got a mini makeover courtesy Chanel! My makeup artist Lauren chose a very natural look for my face (just some bronzer), and played up my eyes with some gorgeous purples (of course, I forgot to take pictures!!!). I seriously fell in love with everything in the fall 2011 collection, and I will definitely make a trip back to pick up some more goodies (especially the eyeshadow quads). A quick trip to a few more stores, and it was time to head home! Later Saturday night, N and I met up with D&J, clefoodgoddess and burningriversports for some drinks, frites, and sunnyside pizza.
Sunday was a super low-key day, hanging with the pups, grabbing some beers at cropicana, and eating my weight in ice cream. A perfect birthday indeed. I received some fabulous birthday presents: jewelry, gift cards to Dredgers Union (they know me so well!), and my darling N got me this little beauty (but mine is an F).
I luuurve this necklace!!! Its incredibly delicate, and its probably going to be something I wear every day!!!
Today I woke up another day older, with a few more grey hairs (that LITERALLY showed up overnight), but happy having spent another FABULOUS weekend in CLE!!!
