I was going to take a break but...

...there's a hurricane on it's way and I'm stranded at home this weekend, so I thought it would be the perfect time to blog!
Last weekend was my husband's 29th birthday (ahhh 30 next year!). We had reservations for a private booth at our favorite local Italian restaurant, Grico's on Saturday night. The food is amazing here and it's kind of a tradition to go here for special occassions like birthdays and anniversaries. We always get a private booth for just the two of us that is closed off with a curtain- so romantic, I know. There is a great amount of history that lies within the doors of this restaurant. It's located in Pittston, PA which was once the home of many mafia members. Many of them dined at Grico's and had private meetings in the booths there. There is actaully a movie coming out about the Bufalino crime family (from Pittston, PA) that will star Al Pacino, Robert De Niro, and Joe Pesci; it's called The Irishman. I had imagined that they may come to the area to film the movie and possibly even film a scene in the restaurant but unfortunately, there was a terrible fire yesterday. I'm hoping that they will be able to recover from the disaster and rebuild.

We are so fortunate that we were able to celebrate there last weekend before the disaster.

 We met up with friends after dinner and went to the casino, this is what I wore:
(this was the end of the night, I apologize for the crappy picture)
Charlotte Russe dress
Coach wristlet
Body Central Heels

On Sunday, we had dinner at his parent's house and we sang happy birthday!
I made him a red velvet cake with cream cheese icing (his favorite).


  1. wow that is super cute!

  2. That exact cake is my fave too! The best.
    I want to see that Irishman movie now, that restaurant sounds like it was so neat. Too bad about the fire .. :(


Thanks for taking the time to leave a comment! I love hearing from my readers.
