One of my best friends from college was in town for her 30th birthday this past week. We did so many things that it was almost hard to remember all that we did lol. Check out what we were up to!
She flew in on her actual birthday, 5/22, so I bought her an ice cream cake from Carvel which she loved!
For her birthday weekend, she was dying to go to a Cirque Du Soleil show!
If you’re not familiar with it, it’s a contemporary circus style show based around a specific theme. There are a variety of performances that take place such as hoop diving, daring acrobatic acts, trapeze acts, handbalancing, aerial straps, Russian swings, and more!
So I surprised her with tickets to the Cirque Du Soleil Luzia (light and rain) which was inspired by Mexican culture. She was so hyped and I was too because I’ve always wanted to go to one of these! The show was AMAZING! I was entertained and intrigued from beginning to end! I highly recommend this show if you haven’t seen it already!
My friend Elsa’s birthday was this day so she came over and so make her a birthday breakfast! I made Belgian waffles, scrambled eggs with cheese, bacon, and freshly made homefries (I used my handy dandy airfryer!).
We then went to Alamo Drafthouse which is a movie theater where you can order food and drinks while watching your movie, it’s pretty cool. We saw John Wick 3 and OMG it was great! If you’re into crime, action packed thrillers, then you should check it out!
In the morning, my inlaws had a baptism for my husband’s Godson and spent time with the family afterwards.
At night, we went to this lounge in the city called Sounds of Brazil or SOB’s. They normally host themed events and tonight was Caribbean night so they played a mix of reggae, soca, throwbacks, and top 40 tunes. We had such a great night and didn’t get back home until 4 in the morning! The last time I partied until the sun came out was way back in college haha!
My husband’s aunt was hosting a BBQ at her place in Patterson. They had hot dogs, hamburgers, sausages and for dinner we had chicken, ribs, rice and beans. Everything was delicious, I love BBQs!
At night, we headed back to town and went bowling with some good friends of ours. We went to Bowlmor Lanes in White Plains. I enjoy going here because they have an arcade area which reminds me of a mini sized Dave n Busters! Everytime I go to an arcade, I’m always drawn to the basketball game and we ended up playing that a few times!
The bowling alley is huge and has about 50 lanes, half upstairs and half downstairs. They have large tv screens all along the walls and have the bowling pins that glow in the dark!
We dropped off my friend at the airport super early for her to head back home to the Cayman Islands. I’m glad she enjoyed herself and we made it a 30th birthday weekend to remember! We came home and took a quick nap and headed out for another BBQ at our cousins place. I got in the pool for a bit but the water was freezing! So I just chilled out on their patio area with the fam enjoying the abundant sunshine! Sunbathing is my favorite thing to do so I was soaking up as much Vitamin D as I could!
So as you can see I had a very eventful week! Now I need a break haha!
How was your Memorial Day weekend? Did you do anything exciting?!
