Weekend is here!

Weekend is here.  It's Joe's birthday, a rather big one at age 35, so we're heading downtown in a limo with another couple for a fun night!  No one has to drive, therefore everyone can enjoy themselves!  Ah.......how we all took it for granted in our early 20's living downtown.

First up, I've decided to make us all a St Germain cocktail for the limo ride downtown.  I got this cute recipe from a friend's 40th birthday party.  Not only was the cocktail GREAT, but what a cute idea for a party favor (everyone brought home a cute silver tin bucket with mini versions of the cocktail ingredients inside).

Next, we're headed to Drumbar for drinks.  It's on the rooftop of the Raffaello hotel in the Gold Coast, and has a great view.  The vibe is that of a speakeasy, and the rooftop deck is a great place to be in the summer.  We are supposed to get some mild weather today and tomorrow so if they have heat lamps maybe we'll be having drinks outside!



Finally it's off to Joe's Stone Crab for the birthday dinner.  Enough said there.....MMM!

So in thinking of what to wear tomorrow night (you'd think it was MY birthday, right?), here are a few things I can't get off my mind lately.  All of which would be great for this upcoming holiday season's parties and soirees.
