Weekend Recap

Mark another great weekend down in the books! This weekend sort of turned into J's 3 day birthday weekend extravaganza, but good thing I love birthdays-especially other peoples!

These happened Friday afternoon. One benefit to seeing a particular client of mine is that they are in the path of Chick-Fil-A. Once you eat these, you'll never go back to McD's chicken nuggets.

Friday night Ben and I got to work on J's birthday cake. Ben did the mixing, despite his desperate plea to crack the eggs into the bowl. I just didn't feel the need for a little extra crunch in this particular cake.

And while Ben did a great job with his part, I majorly sucked at mine. Yeah. I immediately did what any good blogger does. Stand there in shock for about 30 seconds, then grabbed my phone.

 Once I got over the shock and took the shot, I proceeded to Google, "How to make a two-layer cake with one layer." Surprisingly that didn't really yield any results. Have no fear though! I managed to salvage it and J was none the wiser. I still haven't told him about the other half of the layer I tossed in the trash. Don't worry I'll share my secret on how I saved the cake later this week.
I also crafted this little DIY birthday bunting which I'll also post the tutorial for in another post.

As if baking a cake and a DIY weren't enough wild fun for a Friday night we also made slime. I like to think I'm a totally awesome mom, but I can guarantee that Ben might not agree.

Saturday morning J opened presents and was pretty excited to get this little baby and not a real baby.

After lunch where Jack ate himself silly with blackberries, I dropped the kids of at my parent's house so J and I could go on a little birthday date night.

Of course I was ready before the birthday boy so this is how I chose to spend my time before we left for dinner at our favorite steak house. Btw, if you all aren't reading Lisa Loves John you're seriously missing out. I may have read her entire blog beginning to end pinning my way through almost all of her recipes and DIY projects. Good thing I'm not easily embarrassed.

I wore my favorite simple black dress from Target that I bought right before our beach vacation and a new necklace I was gifted from Francesca's. I also gave myself a little bang trim in case you care.

Sunday morning we picked up the kids, ate lunch with J's parents (birthday divo rears his head again), and finished the night up with some laundry and sleep training for Jack. Nothing like waiting until 1 yr to get your kid to sleep through the night! I'll report back after a few nights with what we're doing and how it's going.

*And in case you're wondering what kind of vain wife I am and why I have no pics of my husband during this almost week long celebration, he requested that I not post any pics. Maybe it has something to do with the previous post or the fact that he just likes his privacy. Does he know who he married?

Although I'm a day late, I'm linking up again with Biana for Weekending!
