What a Week

What a great way to end a great week, being featured on the lovely blog, 6th Street Design School.
I have admired Kristen's blog since I first discovered it.  She is a hip young designer with great style. You can check out the feature here.

Our week started off with a bang when our dear friends from Tennessee came up to visit for a few days. We were cursed with more rain, but it certainly didn't slow us down.  
We were able to fit in a Red's game, the Butterfly Show at the local conservatory, 
a trip the Children's Museum and even a night out just for the adults.  

Here are all the children all hyped up for the game.  

They made the trip up to hang out and make memories, of course, but also to help celebrate my husbands' 40th Birthday! They left the morning of his big day.  
We kept the party going and invited the family over for cake.

(I'm pretty sure I've mentioned that I love to bake.  My creations normally turn out tasty, but not so pretty. i.e. this carrot cake that looks like it was iced by my four year old)

I actually put 40 candles on that cake and he blew them all out with one try.  
I thought the smoke alarm was going to go off.  

My husband and I are going away for the weekend to officially celebrate his birthday.  I can't wait for some rest and relaxation.  Wish my mother good luck.  She's in charge of the wild ones while we are away.


  1. Fun! Sounds like you guys had a great time! BTW! Your husband is quite the hottie! 40 looks good on him ;)

  2. Happy Birthday to your husband! I think your cake looks perfect and quite delicious! Enjoy your weekend.

  3. Aw, happy birthday to your hubby! And, super congrats on your feature! That's a big one!


I love reading each and every one of your comments!
