Even though my birthday week is over, we still had one more birthday celebration – birthday with my family. We were supposed to celebrate the weekend before my birthday but the threat of snow (that didn’t actually come) caused us to reschedule. This weekend actually worked out better since it was right before Riley’s birthday (Mine was February 21, Riley’s was March 5) so we celebrate both of ours at once.
Saturday afternoon we went out to eat at Red Lobster for lunch (Riley’s pick). Daddy, Michael and Brendan went home while Mom, Riley, Ben, Chris, (Ben and Chris are Riley’s friends from college who came for the weekend) and I did a little shopping. We went to Goodwill (it was 50% off day!!) – the boys bought all kinds of random things, I found a super cute jacket that I love! (be looking for it in next week’s What I Wore Wednesday). I also found some fantastic, looked-like-new, Nine West black heels. I really liked them but they were too big (which is pretty incredible given my big ‘ole feet) so I didn’t buy them. My most amazing Goodwill find of the day, though, was a pair of pleather maternity pants…I mean, really???
Because I’m not crazy sadly I didn’t buy them. We also went to the mall and looked around some.
Saturday night we had chicken and dumplings (my pick) and then Mom and I made KevinandAmanda’s brownie batter chocolate fudge cupcakes for dessert. They did not disappoint! In fact, everyone LOVED them!
And so birthday week finally came to an end. Until next year.
