Last week, I mentioned that I needed a break in a bad way! I definitely got a little bit of a break on Saturday when we took a little road trip to Birmingham, Alabama to celebrate our 4th Anniversary and start on a little Christmas shopping. Ryan and I love to travel and we had planned on a much bigger trip this year, but as always when you have two babies life tends to get in the way. So, we decided to take a little day trip to Birmingham and hit a couple of our favorite spots!
When we first arrived, we were already running a little behind because traffic was awful. I’m still not entirely sure what was going on because we never passed a wreck or anything, but traffic was backed up for many miles on I-65. Once we finally made it, we decided to skip New York Pizza (the best pizza I’ve ever had) and go straight to The Summit to start shopping! I bought Ryan an Apple Watch for his birthday/anniversary gift and so we started at Apple and ended at Lilly Pulitzer!
After we shopped and walked around for a bit, we ate dinner at The Cheesecake Factory! I had not been there in years and so we decided to enjoy a little comfort food. It was a tough decision as there are so many places to eat in Birmingham.
Ryan actually lived in Birmingham for a while while we were dating. He loved living there and we have definitely tossed around the idea of moving there once our house sells, but the way our minds change, there is no telling where we will end up. It’s so nice and beautiful. There are gorgeous hills and beautiful trees. My hometown is totally flat, so it is a nice change of scenery even driving north one hour. We enjoyed some quality time and conversation without the kiddos present and screaming in the background. They were missed, but it is always nice to have a little break.
