Past Weekend Musings...Socializing and a Shower!

Tuesday, June 12, 2012

Whew! I am still bouncing back from last weekend...what a blur, but what a fabulous time! Friday afternoon started off with not only a visit from best friend coming into town early to spend some time with us, but Leslie and Adrianna bringing their pint sized peanuts over for our first official playdate with the babies...talk about precious!!
I am happpy to report that CC's first rendezvous with 2 of her beaus went well and they had a great time together-you know the drill: eat, poop, play-a fun time was had by all! That night, we headed over to Meg and Aaron's house for dinner and then called it a night.

 Oh lookie, lookie... Collier trying to put his arm around CC
Saturday morning, Jeff took little bit over to her great-grandparents house for the day so they could watch her while we set everything up for the party...it was a beautiful day outside and we all loved how our tables, food area, and decor turned out for Candice and Adam's couple shower.
Since we had a bit of downtime, we decided we NEEDED to have lunch at Taco Mamacita...margaritas and tacos=perfect lunchtime treat for all our hard work!
The party started at 5 so we all went home to make our dishes and get back in time for the party to start! We had such a wonderful time, and I think our bride and groom loved it, too...here are some pictures from the backyard BBQ themed party:
the hostesses...rachel, bev, me, and meg 
 the bride and her mom...candice and pam
 me and the guest of honor-yay!!!

my two best girls...and of course they match ;)
That night, Mom went to pick up Caroline and then brought her by for a litle meet and greet before she scooped her off for her first overnight trip...talk about emotional. Yes I cried, yes I was "that mom"-which could explain why I was up at the crack of dawn Sunday morning heading out to her house to go get my baby-haha.
Sunday, we took Mom out to lunch at Mellow Mushroom and spent the afternoon touring our favorite neighborhood looking at houses...my Mom and Jeff LOVE real estate so any excuse for them is a great one to go check out potential houses. {And P.S. no we're not moving anytime soon, just checking things out to see what our next move will be and what type of home we're looking for}
And yes, I had a litle photo session with CC in the backseat, too!

That night, we came home and took it easy as I entertained Caroline myself on the activity mat.
So all in all, one hectic, jam packed, and fast paced weekend...just how I like it!!
