This {Birthday} Weekend:

* We kicked things off by going to see....

Suuuucccch a cute movie.
So good for the WHOLE family.
We LOVED it!

* Friday night we spent the evening over at my Mom and Dad's house for the Misel Family Reunion part 1.

Since that part of my family descends from Germany - - my mom cooked all things GERMAN....Brats & sauerkraut.

* Saturday I turned 36.

I woke up to my front yard decorated with posters, streamers and glitter. EVERYWHERE.

Gotta love those peeps of mine.

* We took the kiddies to The Hangar Cafe for breakfast.

* I got to do some more shopping all by myself.
Went to a cute little boutique I haven't been to in awhile and spotted this funny gem....

* Met some of my dearest friends for lunch at Morenos where they spoiled me rotten.

* Came home to fresh flowers and some of my very favorite treats from Joe and the kids.

* Then headed back to my parents house for 
Misel Family Reunion Part 2.

We played games based around our family heritage and noshed on MORE German food - - words I can't pronounce.

Those meatballs right there though {whatever they were called} were tasty and included a secret ingredient: Gingersnaps.

* Came home pooped from they day's festivities and celebrated one last time with ice-cream cupcakes.

* Churchey-church on Sunday.
Spiritually uplifted, yet again.

* Fell asleep on the couch with the family afterwards watching the old school 'Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory' movie.  My kids LoVeD it. Joe and I died laughing at Gene Wilder, too.  He kills it in that movie.

* Homemade chicken pot pie for dinner and chocolate chip cookies for dessert.


Going to cherish these last 2 days with the kiddos before they head back to school on Wednesday. Then I'm on a quest to round up ALL of their Halloween costumes and accessories before the week is over.

Wish me luck!
