Celebrated My 27th Birthday

This birthday was probably one of my best. I got to go to Christmas Town, I got to pet a penguin, plus I got to spend lots of time with friends. I was taking advantage of all of the birthday coupons that I had.

We went to IHoP for a pre game birthday event.

Our road trip food on my birthday was won with coupons from yummy Firehouse Subs, Moe’s, and Panera. Score!

Once we arrived in Williamsburg we went to Red Robin with old friends for dinner. Such a great time to catch up! Plus, I redeemed my free non birthday related coupon from Bath and Bodyworks at the mall.

The next day we hung out in Williamsburg after petting the penguin and before the park reopened that afternoon.

Husband was excitedly nostalgic over the realistic fake toy guns. See, he was tortured visiting this place when he was a kid. He was dragged all over all of the historical areas and he HATED it. He promised he’d never come back. Well, whoops, guess that is what happens when you marry a girl from the Tidewater.

For lunch we went to the Cheese Shop in Merchant Square. We got delicious Prosciutto on Focaccia sandwiches with provolone & roasted tomatoes, it was incredible with the Parmesan we’d also bought. Seriously, if ever in question, marry an Italian because they introduce the best sorts of food into your life.

Once we returned back home, I got to go out one more time for a post birthday treat all girls appetizer party. I lived this birthday thing up right for like a week! It was pretty awesome.

  • Cuddled and Adopted a Penguin The weekend before last, I celebrated my birthday up north at the Maryland Zoo in Baltimore. According to my research its the closest zoo that offers penguin experiences/encounters. (And just $45 for a cheek to beak experience). I’d already lost my heart at one experience with Busch/Seaworld, but I wanted to see the penguins at one of [...]
  • Rescued Penguins For My Birthday I daydream about being a Disney princess…but it isn’t for the princes, the fancy castle, clothes, or even the books (I know *gasp*!) its because I secretly wish that I could whistle (ok, I can’t even whistle in the first place…) and animals would come walk over to me. Sure there are some animals that [...]
  • Ranted about the “Me Before You... Guys, why do we (especially the Christian conservatives) freak out about EVERY new book (but more so when its made into a movie) that comes out with an agenda that doesn’t quite match God’s standards?

About Me

Hi! My name is Erin, and this is a place to "process out loud" in the words of my friends. You've probably noticed that the theme is kind of a wide theme, that is much like my life as I'm interested in MANY things: traveling, photography, jogging (its new!), being crafty, homesteading, firearms/self defense, and learning how to be a good wife. Through all of these things my goal is growing to know Christ more, and to make Him known. Each post shares a little about the promise that God has given me, that He'll finish what he began in me! (Phil 1:6) So thank you for joining me on this wonderful adventure.
