We celebrated Chase all weekend long.
It started Friday night at The Warren with 22 Jump Street and ended in Arlington with the Texas Rangers. 3 days of birthday?! I’d call that a success.
Saturday morning, his actual birthday, began with birthday french toast. If you were curious, the sprinkles make it “birthday.” I mean you can’t properly celebrate without sprinkles on your birthday.
He opened his birthday gift – a new handheld GPS for his upcoming elk hunt, watched the Brazil vs. Chile game over cheeseburgers and sweet potato fries at The Garage, and spent another couple of hours at our favorite place, The Warren movie theater.
We watched Transformers in the Director’s Suite. The Director’s Suite is awesome. 20-25 seats, a full service restaurant/bar, and over-sized seats that recline and have seat warmers. I mean… it’s perfect. We are so spoiled by The Warren that we can’t go anywhere else. It’s ridiculous.
Transformer’s was decent. Just what would you expect from a Michael Bay film – lots of explosions, awesome special effects, weak plot. It was crazy long, but Mark Wahlberg is a much better tough guy than Shia LaBeouf. Afterward, we couldn’t stop talking about the amount of product placements that are sprinkled throughout that movie. It was almost laughable. Watch it and count.
For dinner, he requested a steak from Charleston’s and a birthday buttermilk pie.
Chase gets plenty of cake around our house, so he always requests another form of dessert for his birthday. If you’ve never had a buttermilk pie, it’s basically a sweet custard in a pie crust. Kind of like a southern version of creme brûlée. We’ve tried several different recipes but he says this is his favorite one yet! I’ll post the recipe tomorrow!
We woke early Sunday and headed straight to Arlington. My dad invited us to the Rangers vs. Twins game and it couldn’t have been more perfect. The weather was fantastic and we were lucky enough to snag tickets in a suite! Air conditioning, food and drinks to feed 10 people for a week, and outdoor seating under an awning. This was an added bonus for me – I don’t do sun. The sun is a monster.
This weekend couldn’t have been any better. Good food, good times, good company, and great weather. It was the perfect way to celebrate my guy.
