A tradition Meghan, Brynn and I have had since post college is that we take the birthday girl out to dinner at a restaurant none of us have been to.
I know it sounds cheesy, but honestly, it really is such a fun birthday gift just being able to hang out with two of my best friends over wine and a wonderful dinner. Even though we hang out a couple of times a week, going out to a nice dinner is always special!
We went to a totally fun and cute Italian restaurant called Bizzaro which was actually featured on the Food Network.
We wanted it to be a surprise for Meghan, so instead of telling her the name of the restaurant we made up directions from Dwight Schrute from The Office telling her to go to a location where she would find another clue to our dinner spot.
We emailed it to our friend Donny who also works with her and he printed it out and put it on her desk. Yes, Brynn and I are kind of crazy, but we love it!
What was especially fun about this dinner was reminiscing to 10 years ago:
For Meghan's 16th birthday, her mom took us three down to Portland for a girls weekend. They got us a beautiful hotel room, we shopped, went out to dinner and had like a wonderful weekend hanging out. And here we are exactly 10 years later having dinner together!
It's so fun to think that we have been friends for over a decade now and here's to many more birthdays and decades of friendship!
