Celebrating

One of my favorite things that we do on my side of the family is our monthly dinners...
each month we switch off (usually between our house and my brothers house) and have dinner/game night and just catch up. Since all three of us live within 45 minutes of each other you would think we get to see each other all the time but unfortunately we sometimes bounce from visit to visit.

Things are so CRAZY busy for the hubs right now. I feel so very bad for him... a full time job, a part time business, and in school for his masters... I am so thankful that he could even get away from school work this weekend to join us! 2 more weeks and this stressful project will be over, and a few weeks after that and he'll be out of school for the summer. I.can't.wait.


This month, since we were celebrating my birthday, mom offered to host us at her house. We had an amazing dinner and she made me the most beautiful (and delicious) cake I've ever seen!! Lemon Cake and lemon butter cream are my absolute fave. 
Mom, you sure know how to make the birthday girl feel special!

The weather this weekend was beautiful and we ate on their back porch... 
we have GOT to get a big table for our back yard this year. I love eating outside!








this picture is for my gramma... 
spring has sprung and the flowers you planted last year and blooming! 
They make me think of you! xoxo
