We celebrated my amazing husband’s birthday this weekend with one of his best friends and friend’s wife – Charles and Cathy – who flew in for the weekend! Our celebration started on Thursday night with a dinner at Ruth Chris’s steakhouse. Great views, okay food if I’m being honest. I think their famous sizzling hot plates result in overcooked steak :\I had to work on Friday, so Cathy hung out at the Korean spa while Mike and Charles played a round of golf. When we got home, Cathy cooked up an amazing meal of dukkbokki and odeng (she’s quite the chef and insisted on cooking for us) – Korean comfort food at its best!Followed by some games and cake for dessert. Sweet potato cake from Tour Les Jours might be my new favorite.Saturday morning, I went for a run with Charles (he’s training for a 10 miler in October) and the miles went by quickly as we got caught up. I love running with friends. Lunch was a quick affair at our favorite “cheap” sushi joint Sushi Yoshi, and then the guys got ready to check out the new MGM casino in National Harbor, while Cathy and I headed over to Georgetown for some window shopping and dessert. Treats from Baked and Wired – my strawberry ice cream sandwich was delicious but enormous – Cathy and I could have split it and still not finished it.We went over to National Harbor for some outlet shopping (I got a new vest from J.Crew factory #winteriscoming) and then met up with the guys for a movie! We watched the new Kingsman movie, which was entertaining if a little gross at times. We ordered Bonchon on the way home, which was amazing with some beer when we got home for a late dinner. Cathy and Charles had an early flight the next morning – so sad to see them go after such a fun weekend together.
Happy birthday hon! Here’s to many, many more.
