Images of the Weekend

This weekend made my heart smile. We decorated our Christmas tree (sans the bottom 3 feet, since little Miss Penny likes to attack our ornaments) with holiday tunes on full blast.

 

I threw a surprise 25th birthday party for my husband, with the help of my amazing mama. We had friends, family and neighbors over to our house for the Packers game. We made a bunch of food; Greek appetizers including veggie skewers topped with feta, lots of different Mediterranean and middle eastern dips with pita bread and pita chips. For dinner we had a big pot of chili with cornbread (my mom makes theee most amazing cornbread). For desert we had a "Milk & Cookies Bar" with chocolate chip and oatmeal raisin cookies, peanut butter blossoms, lemon bars and the most fudgey chocolate peanut butter brownie cake. I served all of the sweets with ice cold regular, strawberry and chocolate milk. There aren't many photos from the party, because I was busy setting up and hosting - but here are a few that I was able to snap...


    (It was an intense game!)

My favorite part of the weekend was once all of the party guests had left... Jake hugged me so tight and thanked me with tears in his eyes. He said that he felt very special to have everyone there for his birthday. It felt so good to surprise a man that never asks for a thing and is the sweetest, most genuine person that I know.
