I am back. Life has been I N S A N E and it will be crazy for just 1 week,thank God! My Uncle came from Oklahoma, for a 48 hour visit, and we had a little birthday party. We combined my birthday, my sister, my uncle and my cousins birthday all into one party and it was tricky to bring everyones likes altogether. I think I did a pretty good job, color wise, and keeping it girlie yet sort of manly all at the same time.
The day ended up being hella hot, 95º, and I had planned to have it outdoors. It was really lovely that night, but setting up everything in the afternoon was awful. We did plan for a nice cool dinner though; deli roast beef and turkey sandwiches, bistro salad, fruit salad and chips and dip. We had tea, lemonade and water to drink, and little mason jars to drink out of. For dessert we had a chocolate cake, my uncles favorite, Funfetti cake, my cousins favorite, strawberry pie, my favorite and finally a peanut butter fudge trifle, my sisters favorite dessert. It was a great night, filled with family and great conversation. Here are some pictures, my sister captured, of the decorations.
Hope everyone had a great weekend!
