Today is J’s birthday! Happy Birthday to the best husband a girl could ask for! :)
J is impossible to shop for. He doesn’t ‘want’ anything, and when he does ‘want’ something, he just comes home with it. *sigh* It’s extremely frustrating when you’re trying to give gifts. His response to my frustration is simply, “Well, I have everything I need, so why don’t we just do something together?”
I took that to heart, and took him on a mini-get away! We went to Tulsa, OK which is about 2 hours away. We stayed at the Courtyard downtown which is in a fabulous 1922 building, however the rooms were renovated in 2010, which makes for a great building AND great creature comforts! ;)
|I guess that’s how you KNOW it’s an old building! ;)|
I haven’t ever really been to downtown Tulsa, so I never had a chance to realize how beautiful it was! Unfortunately around here our downtowns were developed in the 60’s and 70’s, which means the architecture leaves something to be desired.
|Excuse the chicken wire, apparently they think I’m going to bust some windows.|
|Clock just outside our hotel|
I took J to Cheesecake Factory for his birthday because he is the only person I know who prefers cheesecake to ANY other dessert. Figured you can’t go wrong with like 700 variations of cheesecake! Whoa.
I got the tiramisu cheesecake… holy yum.

I thought I got a picture of J’s vanilla bean cheesecake, but apparently my psychotic phone didn’t take the picture. *dramatic sigh*
|The Birthday Boy!|
Happy Monday, everyone! :)
