What a weekend!

Hello friends!

You guys are too sweet 🙂 thank you for the wonderful comments.  I warn you this post will contain a lot of pictures and might be a bit long.

Let’s see.. Friday night we went over to Lejia’s house for a birthday/mother’s day BBQ.  I took pictures with my DSLR and I haven’t had a chance to get them onto my computer. But my mommy brought me an awesome birthday present!

NINJA!!! I love this thing, we made our first smoothie on Saturday morning before we headed to the gym, delish. After the gym, we took my mom out for an early Mother’s Day brunch at First Watch in Fairfax.

My momma is the cutest 🙂

My plate was aaaahmazing

my sister and I got the same thing

Erik got the eggs Benedict with smoked turkey and avocados.

and I didn’t take a picture of my mom’s dish which is sad because hers was probably the best one. It had a wonderful pesto sauce on top of the eggs! After brunch we went to my mom’s house to give her the cake pops we orders from a friend’s neighbor at work, and to hang out a bit before we headed back home.

I am happy to say that I did not have any of these (yet, ha).   We went home and caught up on Smash before heading to the DC Improv to see GODFREY (another task on my 101 list!)

Then we went to Rumors and danced the night away!

Sunday morning we went over to Erik’s parent’s house where Anya made an amazing Mother’s Day brunch.

Then we went home cooked up some stuff and headed back to their house for my mother in law’s birthday/Mother’s day dinner.

All her kids chipped in money to get her a stand mixer for her birthday

The weekend ended a bit on a sour note, because although we won both of our softball games, I sprained my ankle :-/

But really other than that, this birthday weekend has been amazing!  I do however, need another weekend to recover from this one.. perhaps next weekend!

I hope everyone has a great day!


What did you guys do for Mother’s Day?

    The Ninja is awesome! I bet you can make some awesome smoothies with that. Bummer about your ankle though. Hope you’re not laid up too long.
