my weekend . . .








I took Gigi's cupcakes to our bridesmaids dress shopping appointment and they all looked at me like I was crazy!  Come on, I brought wedding cake and red velvet with white chocolate hearts on top . . what's not to love about that?!

3 girls are going strapless on Amanda's big day and Anne & I get to wear the "Y-neck" dress . . . kinda neat that her 3 friends are wearing the same dress and her two family members are wearing the same one.

I left that dress shopping fun to meet up with family from my Mom's side to look at prom dresses for my cousin Emma . . . then I kicked her out of her dressing room so I could put one of her dresses on and now I want to plan a prom themed party where everyone dresses up for fun.

my lil' cousin Alyssa (I say lil' but she's a sophomore in HS) had her spring dance show on Saturday night and she looked like she was going to kick her face her kicks were so high . . . so afterwards I gave a high kick my best shot and well, the evidence speaks for itself.  I'm clearly not in the best shape or a dancer.

we left the dance show to go have cousin bonding and adult beverages with the over 21 kids (cousin Kristy - her hubs Kevin, cousin Aaron - his fiance Amanda, brother Justin - sis-in-law Leslie & Allen + myself) . . . I can't go into all the details of our night out though because it's mostly inappropriate.  But a good time was had by all, especially the big white balls . . . guess you had to be there.

Sunday was spent with Dad after he made breakfast and we watched Shark Tank together . . . he's my favorite coffee partner.

I laughed more this weekend then I have in awhile.
I love my family so much and love all my cousins who I get along with like we're best buds.
my weekend was amazing, how was yours?

Girlll! I love me some Gigi's cupcakes. Although, I wish they had less icing. The red velvet is to die for and so it the peanut butter and mint one! Guh! You make me want to go there now!
