Of course it all made more sense to him when I requested the bowl of oatmeal as well. But maybe not as much sense as it made to my husband who has watched me eat this breakfast for two consecutive years.
Toast, a quaint little place in downtown Davidson, for brunch on Saturday with the family. I reviewed Toast on the blog not long ago and the experience was not exceptional. However, we saw the potential there and decided to give it another shot. We were not disappointed. And neither were our friends and family.
After our leisurely brunch, I headed home to make final preparations for the Big Event. While the others were out shopping or napping, I busied in the kitchen and began to pack the coolers. Before long it was time to head to the winery and Forbes' mom and friend Tiffany were along to help me set-up.
Lots of food and wine was enjoyed. I played the happy hostess filling wine glasses and socializing with each table.
Overall, I would say the birthday weekend was a wonderful success and the birthday boy enjoyed his 30th surrounded by many friends and family. As our guests departed yesterday evening he got quiet and was succumb with a little emotion that the weekend was over and his family was leaving. It is hard to say goodbye when we don't get to see them often.
We played the high-low game last night as we un-winded from the whirlwind.
High- Friday night game night with all of the out-of town guests
Low- Everyone leaving
High- the party, duh!
Low- Sunday afternoon: tired and cranky.
It seems after every major event I always fall into this postpartum state. I was exhausted yesterday and despite an amazing church service, great weather, and the company of those I love, I could not shake my mini-depression. We still managed to have a wonderful day, grilled out, and relaxed around the house. None of us got to share Mother's Day with our moms but they were all with us in spirit.
