Weekend Recap: Birthdays Edition
Friday was St. Patricks Day and I was on my own til later that night because Tommy was in Chicago for work. This St. Patricks Day was a bit different than in my past ;) Emma and I spent the afternoon out on the front lawn enjoying the beautiful weather. It was a gorgeous afternoon!
Saturday began our hectic weekend. Of course it poured with rain on Saturday morning and we had wanted to go to Murphy Candler for lunch with my family for my mom's 60th. We ended up hosting everyone at our house instead and had a great time. It didn't really matter where we were as long as we were together to celebrate. We had chicken salad chick, croissants, fruit salad, green salad, and cookie cake for lunch. The kids enjoyed playing and we all enjoyed the time together! Emma was pooped by the end of lunch. She didn't stop "talking" the entire time everyone was here. Lots to say from that little body of hers. Her personality comes out more and more every day. She sure loves her cousin and I think her favorite person is Auntie Bonnie!
After her nap we headed to Emma's friend's first birthday party. Annie Kilch is such a sweet little ball of sunshine! It was great to see everyone from our tennis team away from the courts and catch up. The kiddos had a great time playing (not getting their group picture taken) especially in the bounce house. I think we need one of these because it was such a hit!!! Katie did such a cute job with the decorations and bunny theme. It was adorable and a special time celebrating a special little girl.
After the party we came home and I fed Emma then headed out to dinner at Gaja with my college girlfriends. Lizzie just moved back to Atlanta and Colleen was in town visiting from Nashville. The food was so interesting (Korean food) and delicious! We went to Ladybird after and I just stayed for a half hour or so then headed home. I just can't hang too late anymore knowing my wake up is still going to be early. I do the best I can!
Sunday we started our day with brunch at the Robinsons. Beth was in town this weekend for an appointment at the airport this morning so we went to hang out for the morning. Courtney made quite the feast! Emma skipped her morning nap because she was having too much fun playing with Coco and Tpop.
After brunch we came home and I headed out to Decatur for my tennis match. I played line 2 with Bonnie. It was such a pretty day to be outside playing. We played well but lost in the third set. We had such long points and went to deuce at least 25 times. Tough loss! This was opening weekend of Alta Spring tennis. I so enjoy my tennis team and getting out and playing.
After my match I rushed home to get ready for dinner for my mom's 60th with friends and family. I know are you tired just thinking about how packed my weekend was. I am just retelling it! We set up dinner at Gypsy Kitchen. We did a pre-set menu where we got to pick out around 8 tapas that they brought out for everyone to share with churros for dessert. The food was so good and it is always fun to get to try a bunch of different things. Thank you Nana for dinner! We had a GREAT time with my whole family (minus the babies), the Lawries, and the Balfours. My mom enjoyed herself and we all enjoyed celebrating her. Emma got to spend the evening playing with her Coco and Beth. She got lots of grandparent/Auntie time this weekend which is always good for her (and for us!).
Whew what a weekend. I am exhausted and need a weekend to recover from my weekend. We are so lucky that we have such fun celebrations with our loved ones and that our loved ones live so close.
Happy birthday to my dad today too! Baba is so loved! Spring really sprung today too! Hope this weather is here to stay.
Hope you all have a wonderful week.
