I had a ton of personal days built up, so I decided to take off the Wednesday, Thursday and Friday before Christmas, and give myself a lovely 6 day break from work. I made B take Wednesday off so we could have a good date day before the holidays – seeing as how we’re not sure when we will get our next actual date night. Although, I kind of prefer our day dates, a good night time date is always fun, too. Plus B and I were watching something where a couple was talking about actually losing themselves in parenthood and not remembering that they were actual people too. And that is something I ‘m not willing to sacrifice. I love my kid, and I love being a mom, but I also love being the spontaneous, fun loving wife that I have always been.
SO, we decided that we wanted to go to Cosecha for breakfast tacos, but to our great horror, they had permanently closed. They were a little slow, but they had the best damn breakfast tacos in Birmingham. We were bummed. B quickly hopped on his phone to find us breakfast. We ended up at Feast & Forest, and it was just as delicious. B got the avocado toast, and I got the build your own biscuit with sausage, cheese and scrambled eggs. The biscuit was amazing, and B really loved his toast.
After breakfast, we headed over to TopGolf. We were so excited to get to try this new place out. It is right outside of Uptown Birmingham and you can see the skyline from their parking lot. B and I had an absolute blast. FYI – I don’t play golf, I rarely swing a club, and this was still really fun. You don’t have to be a skilled golfer to have fun here. They provide mens and ladies clubs, so no need to bring your own. The “hostess” (for lack of better word) that was assigned to our bay was fantastic. You pay by the hour, and you can add time to the end if you decide you want to stay longer – which we did. The main game, TopGolf, is just hitting your ball into any target on the field. You can get more specific, but I just wanted to focus on getting the ball into the field, so we stuck with the original game. It was so fun, we already have plans to go for my birthday in a few weeks.
After TopGolf, we headed over to Hop City, and got to see our pal Ralph! We tried some delicious beers, meet some Jekyll Brewing reps who bought us their beer, and went to Jack Browns. Where we ran into the Jekyll Brewing folks again. We got a late lunch and went to pick up the kiddo.
Another great date day in Birmingham. I really love getting to spend that time with the hubs – it’s always a good recharge.
