Birthday Party!

Well the birthday party for my mother in law went pretty well. No cried, no one cussed and no one left early. My sister in law works at Whole Foods and she got the most amazing steaks. OMG they were delicious!! If only we could afford to eat such nice meat more often. I always feel bad when she brings the food since I know it costs so much. I asked what I could bring and she told me ice cream.

So Scott and I went to the store to get ice cream. I told him he had to pick it out since his mom is a bit picky and let's you know if you didn't get something she likes. So we stood there for like 5 minutes. I'm like I think she likes French Vanilla. There's like 500 kind of French Vanilla ice cream. He finally picks one (and I got a lower fat one for us dieters) and we get in line. He had sent his sister a text asking what kind we should get and we got the response when it was our turn at the check out. She likes REGULAR vanilla, not French so we got out of line while he went and found another one. Kind of comical what we go through to try and make her happy.

But I do have to say she didn't complain about the ice cream ;)

After dinner of steak and potatoes and peas and salad and the most delicious deviled eggs (only had one) the girls and I went for a 20 minute walk to work off some calories so we could have cake and ice cream. It was a nice little break and we got some fresh air.

We came back and sang Happy Birthday and had cake and ice cream and then went home after visiting a bit. It turned out to be a pretty nice visit.

Side story on the candles, we started buying those years ago for their birthdays. My father in law insists that we recycle them. I think we have almost every number now!

I found this picture I forgot to share before when I was looking at my camera card.

Aren't we cute? I don't really ever think about Scott being so tall until I see pictures like this. Happily I've lost a bit of weight since this picture was taken.Pin It

I am happy that the weekend went so well. I wish mine last week did. I didn't blog it because some of the family reads it. It was a nightmare!
So I understood your apprehension.

How tall is Scott or better yet how short are you? Rick is 6'1 1/2" and I'm 5' 1 1/2" So we look odd in photo's and I too never realize how tall he is until I see us in a picture.
