I've convinced myself that the short bike ride there and back cancels out eating these huge and delicious things.

We had a great weekend that was focused mainly on celebrating my favorite guy and watching a lot of the Olympics. We dvr'd the opening ceremonies and enjoyed watching it Saturday afternoon. We were both impressed by the show and how creative and inventive it was. I also loved that they paid homage to the doctors, nurses, construction workers, and volunteers in London.
The highlight of our weekend was definitely Saturday night when we made the short drive into DC for a night of celebrating VABeau. We started the evening with an amazing dinner at Michel Richard's Central. We sampled something from each course and everything we ate and drank were pure perfection. We ended the night laughing off our meal at The Second City show at the Shakespeare Theater. The improv comedy show was hilarious and VABeau laughed non stop for two whole hours. Hearing him laugh that much convinced me that there could be no better Birthday gift for my best husband!
