Friday, Geof and I took the day off and headed to Delaware for some tax-free shopping. My mom and I both got him gift cards to Best Buy for his birthday so that he could use them towards a new camcorder, which is something he has wanted for awhile. After Best Buy, we made a quick stop at Ulta and then headed off to dinner at Don Pablo’s. After dinner, we drove home and got ready to go out.
We went to The Deck for Geof’s birthday and Kelly and Jim met up with us. It was a beautiful night on the river and we could not have asked for better weather. Geof had a nice time and that’s what was most important.

Pretty roses Geof got for me at The Deck
Saturday, Geof and I went to the movies to see Eclipse and about 20 minutes before the movie ended a siren started going off and we had to evacuate the theater. There is nothing worse than being left hanging (even though I have read all the books). The fire engines came and it seemed to be a false alarm. We got some free vouchers and then went to dinner at Spice. I got the usual Chicken Tikka Masala with Paneer and it was delicious as always, although the service could have been a little better.

We stopped for some Rita's Water Ice on the way home...notice Geof's orange lips :)
Sunday, we spent the afternoon at the pool and then went to our friends, Jamie & Beth’s, house for a BBQ. We called it an early night because we had to get home to the dogs. We ended up taking them for a late night 3 mile walk and got to see some fireworks along the way.
Another beautiful day at the pool!

Monday, Geof and I went back to the movies and saw The A-Team and timed it perfectly so that we could see the conclusion to Eclipse. The A-Team was really good and even if you’re not into action movies, a shirtless Bradley Cooper should be enough to make you want to see it. That man is beautiful. In the end, Eclipse was exactly as I expected and the movie was decent, although the books are much better (which is usually the case). After the movies, Geof and I went to Uno for dinner. I hated the pizza that we got and barely got down a slice. We headed home and spent the rest of the night with the pups.
It was really nice to get some quiet time and dates in with Geof. With me working so much and him traveling on and off, I feel like it’s easy to get disconnected. This long weekend was a perfect time for us to enjoy each other and have fun. I hope that everyone had a Happy 4th!
