Weekend Wrap-Up

This weekend was super short, super fun, and filled with celebration. 

Jordan turned 30 last year and while this year there was no party to surprise him with, we still made time for celebration of my sweet man.  Jordan’s 31st birthday was on Sunday and we spent the entire weekend remembering it. That’s the way it should be, thought, right?  Besides.. his wife gets to celebrate for at least a week during the month of September, so it’s only fitting to allow the weekend for his birthday.
Friday started off this weekend wonderfully with hibachi and bowling with some of our bestest evers.  Ash and Jarrett made awesome company as we gorged enjoyed ourselves at Hoshi.  They have the best Tuna Tower I’ve ever eaten, so I was happy with the birthday boy’s selection.

Then it was off for fun at the bowling alley.  How long has it been since I’ve bowled?  When we were trying to figure out where to go, we figured out really quick that the larger bowling alleys are jammed packed for pre-teen social hour on Friday night.  We weren’t interested in waiting 2+ hours for a lane.

Thanks to Google..we decided on USA Bowl in a somewhat questionable area in Dallas.  Hey, there was no wait at all, and we just wanted to bowl..  It turned out to be ‘nicer’ than expected.. and we had a blast!   

My bestest and me getting ready for some serious bowling.  Ashley was determined to cross off an item from her 30 Before 30 list.   Bowling a 150 didn’t happen.. but we still had fun trying:)

Besties 4 (fo) Life 

I cannot forget this sweet face. Jolie was all about celebrating daddy!  Saturday morning I headed out, girls in tow, to my sweet Stephanie’s baby shower (baby Patel due 4/20!).  This was a first for both of us.. Daddy was home alone and momma was out and about solo with these little bits.  Steph really wanted me to bring the girls so her mom and sisters could meet them, and I didn’t think twice because I had been without them all week, and after leaving them with BB and Poppa on Friday night, I really didn’t want to leave them for part of the day on Saturday.  They were total angel babies- everyone loved them!  I have no proof of this baby shower event- boo.  With a baby in my arms while strategically enjoying my fair share of shower food (I LOVEEEEE shower food.)- snapping photos ended up last on my list of priorities.  

Saturday night was spent at Jordan’s parent’s house for Jordan’s Birthday Dinner.  It was a steak and potatoes kinda night.  Of course- I majorly failed, again, at getting any pictures, while I had every intention. 

Sunday morning was magical.  The girls slept-in later than normal which means this momma hit her alarm one too many times.  Sleeping through church is never acceptable, but there is something about waking up with the light shining through the blinds.   
(decaf) Coffee tastes 6703475692 times better at 9am than it does at 5am.  And coffee in my new mug makes for an even better morning.     

Sunday ended up being really lazy and spent in our PJ.  We watched two movies.. TWO.  The Hunger Games (really really good!) and The Watch.  I made dinner of the sweet hubby’s choosing (Pesto Seafood Risotto) and this precious face sat on the counter and observed my cooking skills. 

Ugh.  I love those baby cheeks.

After dinner, while baby girls snoozed, Jordan and I enjoyed a cuppy cake and I (quietly) sang Happy Birthday to my sweet on his 31st.

 Although it seemed like such a quick two days, it was such a great weekend!  Happy 31st Birthday my handsome man.  I love you to the moon and back!
