Happy 80th, Aunt Wanda!

J & I traveled to Indianapolis last Thursday to celebrate his Aunt Wanda's 80th birthday. It was my first visit to Indy, and it was a great weekend to celebrate such an awesome person. If you follow Uptown Acorn on facebook and instagram then you know we the great time we had.

On Friday a limousine picked us up at our hotel in downtown Indy, traveled to Fishers (home of her daughter Tracy and son-in-law Craig and their three kids), and surprised Aunt Wanda. She had no idea we had traveled to Indy as all was put together by her daughter Tracy. Aunt Wanda had no idea that Jeff and I as well as Jeff's mom and sister, and her cousin Randy and his wife Barb had also traveled from San Diego. 

Aunt Wanda was in tears when our driver Paris opened the limo floor, and we were all in there. Check out her reaction. Priceless!

We traveled back to downtown Indy for an incredible dinner in a private room at St. Elmo's Steakhouse. The private room, our private server, and the food were phenomenal. Besides their fab steaks, they are known for the delicious shrimp cocktail. Yum! The caramel cake was not bad either.

We celebrated a fantastic night of conversation and cocktails.

Happy 80th Aunt Wanda, y'all!
