Cel-e-brate good times!

Another busy weekend down! We had one last celebration for Mark and Alison. Mark's mom and dad hosted a second reception for them in a very small town where they have now retired. It was a BLAST!! We got in Saturday afternoon, changed and headed for St. Mary's Hall. If you're wondering, yes, you can drink in St. Mary's hall and believe me, there was plenty of drinking going on. These folks in this small town knew how to have a good time! I had to keep an eye out on Aaron (Beau) as he thought he could keep up with some of the older men....didn't end too well! We danced all night, again! We had so much fun and it was great to get to hang out with everyone again! Never a dull moment with our group :)

We drove back in on Sunday and picked up Daisy at my parents house. They were nice enough to watch her while we were out of town. It also let us see my Momma on Mother's Day! It was such a good day. The whole fam was out by the pool when Aaron and I got in and then we started preparing for the feast: steaks and all the fixin's! Of course, mom was right in the kitchen with me. I told her to relax and sit down, but she refused. She is so selfless. She will rarely let you do something for her. She always put us first in everything. I loved having her in there with me though. We have always had the best times in the kitchen together. I try to learn all of her cooking techniques from her. I'm still learning people...she has a lot to share! Finally the steaks (bravo PappaT!) were done and everything was delicious!! I stuffed myself. So worth it though! My dad made his famous dessert, banana's foster. He makes this every anniversary, mother's day or whenever my mom asks for it! It was their dessert they had on their wedding night so it's special to them. And sooo good!! I know I'm a couple of days late, but Happy Mother's Day Mom! You are truly a blessing to me. Thank you for answering the phone when I call 12 times a day, listening to me vent about Lord knows what, buying me cute tops just because and for being such an amazing mother and wife that I too, hope I can be one day!

What a great weekend it was! We are still recovering from the late nights, but I think we're almost back in business. I think this weekend we are going to be pretty low key...looking forward to that! Oh and Biggest Loser is on tonight!!! - Season Finale :(
