I love my birthday. Love it. My birthdays just seem to get better and better each year. I feel so loved and value especially on my birthday. This year I spent it at my favorite local B&B, Los Poblanos. If you’re ever in Albuquerque and you love lavender or farm shops this place is a must see.
Originally the weekend was going to be just me, my introverted self, and I, but my sweet housemate went ahead and booked her, my sister and I a suite AND a few fun surprises along the way. I don’t usually like surprises, but these were the best.
For lunch Sarah (roomie to the right of the photo) and I met up with Gayle (sister to the left of the photo) at Flying Star. What started off with just the 3 of us quickly turned into lunch with so many of my favorite people. 🙂 Please forgive the wonkiness of the panoramic.
After lunch Sarah, Gayle and I headed to Los Poblanos:
My least favorite part of Los Poblanos is you can’t bring your pet, but with all the animals they have there it’s easy to get your animal fix.
After lounging around for a bit, a few more of my favorite people stopped by to get my house keys (they were watching Dolce Dog while I was gone). We played a few rounds of ‘Heads Up.’ SO MUCH FUN. Get that game/ app immediately.
It was basically a weekend of my favorite people and places. For dinner we went to Farm and Table. The duck tamales weren’t my favorite- they did look pretty (but if you’re ever there the fries never disappoint).
After dinner fire and tea in the room. Breakfast the next day at Los Poblanos was chilequilles- the best.
The next day I was the one who planned out the surprise. I took my adorable mother to see Nutcracker on the Rocks, by the Keshet Dance Company. I’ve been a few times over the Christmas’, but it was her first. She loved it.
My birthday was last month, but the love and generosity will forever stay in my heart. Can’t wait for next year!
