My amazingly awesome weekend is coming to an end and it could be considered one of the best weekends of my life. Last time I blogged was on Wednesday night and it has been non-stop since then. Thursday was full of work because I knew I probably wouldn't step inside my office for the next 5 days after. By the end of the busy day, all I had time for was this quick picture:
Friday began the preparations for the parties so that meant a TON of cleaning around the house and setting up. Luckily, the day ended with some actual fun as my out of town family started arriving and a bunch of us went out to dinner at Mas, my favorite Mexican restaurant, for some good food and mariachi music. By the time we got out of there, it was pretty late, and combined with the long day of work, I was exhausted. Not having taken a picture yet, I got a quick pic of C3PO.
Saturday was my big party! Although it was one day early, we celebrated my 33rd birthday in style with our 3rd annual tequila tasting party. We had somewhere around 30 friends and family show up and between the good company and great authentic Mexican food, we had an amazing time. And that is not even counting the 13 different tequilas we sampled and rated! Not even the rain kept a good time from happening. And once the party was finally over, all the tequila was mine!
Sunday was my actual birthday, but we celebrated by having my sister's baby shower! Lil' Dude is less than a month away from coming into the world and we are all so excited. I stayed behind to take pictures of the shower. Check out the baby carriage my dad made out of fruit!
Still, the day didn't go without some celebration of my birthday. Jess, my folks, and my cousins accompanied me to Tex Wasabi, one of my favorite restaurants in town. That made 3 birthday dinners for me in a row!!!
Monday, we continued the fun with lunch with my cousin before they went out of town and then a barbecue at the Matteonis! Prior to all the fun, I took a few pictures of a Guerrero statue my Grandparents own for my cousin. Guerrero is their surname and it means warrior in Spanish. The statue perfectly depicts that and it was fun to take pictures of.
And today, I guess I could have gone back to work, but Jess was also on her last day off so I opted to have a lazy day on the sofa with her. I still worked while we watched TV, but didn't get as much done as I could have. And tomorrow is also the 1st of the month so reality will really come crashing down tomorrow. Hell, I haven't even taken a picture of the day yet and I am already freaking out about tomorrow. But I wouldn't trade the fun I had the last few days for the world.
