You can see the first part of my Birthday Weekend Here.
Saturday, I woke up feeling fantastic. I woke up at 6AM, curled up in the chair. Normally if I fall asleep in the chair, I wake up with a sore neck or back. I got up. Fixed a large glass of water and noticed that Huck took pictures of me while I was asleep.
Mike and Nancy, a couple Huck use to do work for in Georgia, were in town for the day, so we made plans to show them around the area. They arrived around 11AM and we headed out to the Craft Beer and Burger Bash.
I thought this event was going to be inside. Not in the hot South Florida sun. I sampled lots of burgers while walking around and was very disappointed. If you are entering burgers into a burger competition, the burgers should at least taste good. All the burgers I tried were covered in sauce, but the meat itself was very bland. SALT AND PEPPER PEOPLE. My favorite was a Gyro Burger from Whole Foods and a Philly from CG Burger. Both were Chain Restaurant. The beer was good, but I started feeling a little dehydrated and laid off the beer and started chugging water!
We stayed for about 2 hours and came home, changed into our bathing suits, and left to go to Blowing Rock Preserves. Blowing Rock is amazing! The water was very rough, so the waves were hitting the rocks really hard.
When we first arrived, the waves were just lightly splashing on the rocks. The guys walked over to the edge to get a better look.
They both got a little wet
We did a few Mad Libs while in the car too. I haven’t done these in years. This will definitely be a part of our next trip to Miami.
We went and sat on the beach for a little while after we left, and went to Bubba Gump’s for dinner. I of course ordered the Shrimp and Grits again. It was just so good the first time I had it. I wasn’t as impressed this time. They added way to much ham and it was really greasy. I’ll probably change it up next time.
The view is great of the lighthouse at night!! I need to work with my camera to figure out how to take better pictures at night.
Today, was a lazy day of hanging out at TBC, grocery shopping for veggies at Publix (I do not think I had any veggies all weekend and feel horrible!!), and hanging out by the pool.
This weekend was great. Huck did a great job making my 27th Birthday a great one! I’m one lucky girl!!
