The Weekender - Mom's Birthday

My lovely mom's birthday weekend

Talk about a relaxing but fun weekend. As you can see, the weekend was filled with family, friends and lots of food.

- Friday, was all about work and my last barre class. As some of you know I bought a Groupon for a new workout studio called The Movement Factory, you can read more about it here.Even though my Groupon promotion has expired, I will be purchasing another month at the beginning on April. Gotta stay in shape, summer is coming...i think?
- Friday I wore the new beautiful necklace My Guy bought me. I also went and bought my mom's birthday present. She loves my MK watch so I had to buy her one as well :)
- Saturday morning I went to go pick up the cake from A Cookie and A Cupcake, this place is to die for! The cutest little hidden place in Tremont. They have the best cupcakes! I am usually healthy and all but who doesn't love some cupcakes!?!?  I also went to help my dad pick out a birthday present for my mom. He got her to beautiful rings, one is a white gold ring with diamonds and the other is a very abstract sterling silver ring with a blue sapphire, I will have to post pictures of them.
- Saturday night was spent dancing the night away. I love going out with my girl friends and just enjoy the evening on the dance floor. Please tell me you like to dance!?
- Sunday was Mom's Day!! We took her to lunch, she chose Olive Garden and we had a fantastic time. My dad and I kept teasing her of how we didn't get a cake because she told us not to. She looked a little disappointed but was very surprised when we got home and she saw the cake. We each had pasta dishes and they were amazing.
- I love the picture of my parents, they always try to match :)
- My dad is a truck driver and always thinks of me when he's on the road. So when he was transporting these amazing Coconut Macaroons he had to buy a bag for me too. He knows I like healthier options for dessert so he bought these gluten-free organic treats.

How was your weekend?
How do you celebrate birthdays? 
Do you enjoy dancing with your girl friends?

    1. They are awesome and they have warranties with them which is nice and helpful just incase anything happens to it.

      No worries girl! Whenever you get all settled in we can plan something. You have plenty on your plate.

  2. They do say people start looking like each other the longer they are together- maybe dressing alike is step one? :)

    1. I've been so good about working out so I can eat what ever I want and still not gain weight. I like to think of dancing as a good workout :)
