weekend in review

This weekend was awesome! I'm still worn out. : ) It started Thursday night when Mark and I went over to Bill and Beth's to hang out and Beth and I got to watch some Grey's Anatomy! On Friday morning Mark and Ryan and myself went over to help bill pull some vines down off of the rental house. After that we went to Lowe's and then we all came home to take a nap! That night we had pizza and cake then went bowling for Olivia's 4th birthday!

Saturday was even crazier. We started at the ball field for Ryan's first Tee Ball game. Can I just say HOW CUTE little kids are playing tee ball? They build dirt piles, run the wrong way and ask if they can go sit with their papaws when they get bored. It's adorable!

Mark and I left the ball field and headed home to get ready for Nikki and Jay's wedding. Nikki was such a beautiful bride and we were so happy to be a part of their day! They had some of the best food I've ever had at a wedding as well. Lots of authentic Italian finger foods. Delicious!!

After the wedding, We headed home to change again and this time Courtney went with me to Ryan's second game of the day where we met my Mom and my Uncle Mark. Ryan was a crowd pleaser, that's for sure! After the game, Courtney and I headed back to my place to change for the final leg of Saturday's journey... Vanessa's Bachelorette Party!

We had a great time and sent Vanessa's single life out in style of course...with hard liquor, dirty dancing and a little karaoke. : ) After we got home, I completely passed out.

Sunday morning the three of us woke and ate pizza for breakfast. After that we all got ready and headed out for Vanessa and James shower. They got a ton of gifts and they are already so loved by their families and friends. We can't wait to help them celebrate their big day! After all that, Mark and I didn't feel like cooking dinner, so we got a rotisserie chicken from Food City, piled on the couch and watch a few episodes of True Blood Before calling it a day.

I hope your weekend was as fun as ours was!

Too much. Much too much.

That pretty well sums it up. I've had too much. Much too much going on to do much of anything. I haven't even had my camera out in over 2 weeks if that tells you anything. We buried my grandfather Friday before last. It was surreal. I cried the whole time. I mean, we were sitting on the front row...and the minute I sat down, here came the water works. A little while later I look up, (because I have my head laying on Marks chest) and he is crying too. which was so sweet, it made me cry even harder. It was a short ceremony, and a beautiful one. Afterwards we all gathered at my grandparents house and ate food and listened to great stories. It was nice. Mark and I came home that day and slept for the rest of the day. Emotional exhaustion, I guess.

This week I celebrated my 31st birthday. It was low key on the day of, for a slew of reasons. One, it was the middle of the work week. Two, it was my first birthday without Gia. He would have been 90 this year, so that was hard. Mark and I played a game of Farkle on the back porch. We ate pizza and called it a day. He also bought me the best card ever and TWO Hunger Games T-shirts. : )  Nearly 100 people wished me a happy birthday on Facebook. I won't lie. It made me feel good. : ) My mom brought me the sweetest card and some birthday cash. : ) Old Navy, here I come!

As for the rest of the week, I had no idea so many people would want to celebrate with me! My uncle came and had dinner with us Tuesday night (the night before my birthday and he brought me a card too! My aunt sent me a card in the mail, which was also really sweet. Friday night JT and Vanessa had us over for dinner. They made steaks, the biggest potatoes you've ever seen, asparagus, grilled zucchini and squash and garlic bread. Vanessa also made me a homemade blackberry wine cake. It was AMAZING. I may have had a few glasses of wine. On Saturday, Mark and I went with his parents to lunch at McCallister's and to see the Hunger Games. It was awesome! We left the movie and headed straight for dinner at Bill and Beth's where they made us flying prime rib (GOOSE!) with horseradish sauce, wild rice and mushrooms and a yummy salad. I had some Prosseco there. : )

Today we stayed home. I ended up with a migraine, but I feel too blessed from this week to complain too much about it. Although the headache did derail our dinner with Holly and Ryan. :( We'll get it done, though. We love to eat!
