TWTW - the one after my birthday

Friday night wedding at the Ballroom at the Ben. Congratulations Brittany & Thomas! It was nice to catch up with friends we haven't seen in a while while celebrating the newlyweds. The food, band, and bonus Whoa Phat brass band were awesome; and all the details were gorgeous. The pics of the bride and groom leading the party on the dance floor say it all. We did do an Irish goodbye at midnight in honor of St. Paddy's day.
A relaxing Saturday morning with los perros + nail painting (OPI Pamplona Purple from MFD in my birthday bag).
Saturday afternoon surprise lunch at Las Margaritas with my crew, followed by strawberry cake made by my mom and coffee at home. It was so nice to spend an afternoon whiling away time with people I am exceptionally comfortable with and deeply love who really get me. Except no one told me there was no hand towel in the basement bathroom. Come on people! It was in the dryer! Regardless, when I was initially planning to be down the shore they were all going to drive down there just to have lunch with me to celebrate my birthday, and when we decided we weren't opening the house it was a scramble for them to regroup and come up with a new plan. I'm surrounded by the best people and that has truly made all the difference in my life. It is a huge thing to have people you know you can count on for anything at all.
Most of the crew left around 6. Mom and Lori stayed over and Debbie hung out with us for a while. Sunday morning Mom, Lori, and I went to Ulta and Target and Mom bought us pretzel pork roll sandwiches that were freaking delicious. My mother plays spray and get away in Ulta and it was like walking around with the entire perfume section in my nose hairs. I am trying out a bunch of new dry shampoos because it's been a while since I've switched it up. I will report back.
I got some friendly blogger mail this weekend from Pam of Oceanstategirl Photos and Books and Erin of TexErin-in-Sydneyland and finally activated the very generous DD card Steph from Not Entirely Perfect sent me and then re-sent me this morning since I accidentally deleted it last night. She gets me.
Sunday more time with my people catching up with Dad & Carol over birthday dinner #1; #2 is in April when we'll be down the shore. I'm maxing this 40th birthday out. We talked about our upcoming summer vacation, which is one of my favorite topics.
Weekly food prep: breakfast is scrambled eggs topped with broccoli; lunch is chili  from the freezer (only need three days of lunch); snacks are almonds, snap peas; and bananas; and dinners are salmon and broccoli - I'm out three nights this week so I only have to make one and that will cover two nights. 



This was a weekend for the books, and I have all the good feelings from it. It's the first day of spring and the snow is melting. Hallelujah and amen. Let's make it a great week!




Linking up with Biana at B Loved Boston for Weekending
