So the guys grilled out, and Sarah and I chatted in the kitchen.
Here's the birthday girl cleaning mustard greens from the farmers' market. Note the outfit. Chris bought me clothes for my birthday, and before all you girls cringe at the thought of your husbands buying you clothes, Chris has better taste than I do, and I wish he would shop for me ALL the time. I had been complaining that I didn't own any "weekend wear." You know, the stuff you put on to run errands that's not quite sleepwear and and more comfortable jeans and a sweater. So he got me this super comfortable, outfit, plus a weekend dress that will be unveiled on the blog soon.
Here are some of my favorite people about to enjoy dinner!
I was there too.
Birthday Girl and spouse.
As if Friday night wasn't enough celebrating my birth, Saturday brought mom and Jack and Jenny and Thad to come see us. I was so excited that Jenny and Thad were able to come see us because they hadn't seen the house yet. We all had lunch together, did a little driving tour of the city and generally hung out before dinner.
I decided that I wanted to cook dinner for everyone, and I put mom and Jenny to work making a cake. How cute are we all in the kitchen together! Note the apron: it was my birthday gift from Sarah and Charlie, and it came with matching recipe cards. So thoughtful!
Thankfully the guys had some entertainment while the ladies cooked. Did you know my grandfather is a cat guy? Porter was glad someone appreciated his cuteness, and his ability to play/fight.
Chris and Jack were there too, but sorry guys, since you weren't loving on a cat, Thad won out on picture time.
Thank you to everyone who took time out to celebrate my birthday with me. It was such a good excuse to see everyone!
