birthday present

Our weekend was amazing!! It started with happy hour on Thursday with my best friends that live close to celebrate my birthday. Everyone else celebrates their birthday for a whole week right?? Then Friday evening began my b-day gift from Scott. He took me to the city (Baltimore) which is about a 35 minute drive from our house. We walked around the Inner Harbor for a bit and then he surprised me with dinner at the Rusty Scupper. This is a nicer restaurant that overlooks the boats and the water. The boats closest to us were massive yachts. We kept guessing what each of them probably cost.  The food was superb and my date wasn't so bad either ;)

After dinner we went to Mobtown Ballroom for swing dancing lessons. We had the absolute best time. Scott and I took lessons before our wedding and enjoyed it so much we decided to try again. We are by no means dancers. So getting lessons is more a comedy show than learning any moves. The ballroom was located in an old church. The stained glass windows were amazing! The lessons lasted about an hour and then the dance floor opened up to anyone and everyone. There were about 40 people there for the lessons. Younger than us, our age, older than us, singles, and couples. We rotated partners through the lessons so it didn't matter if you came as a single or a couple. We for sure did not master any of the moves. But we had a blast trying. Dancing with the older (60's-70's) gentlemen was hysterical. They didn't realize that they wouldn't be getting lessons with just their wives so they were so cute when they were terrible dancing with me. I even had an old guy almost kick me during one of the moves. 

I will update with photos of our July 4th weekend in another post!

  1. Sounds like you had a lot of fun!! Dancing is always a good idea :)

  2. Looks like a fabulous trip! Happy Birthday! I'm trying to talk my fiance into dancing lessons for our weeding, wish me luck!

  3. What a nice way to celebrate your birthday! Happy birthday! I must say, your food dishes look AMAZING. I've visited Baltimore just once and ate a place that was famous for crab cakes (can't remember it right now). It was pretty awesome. :)
