Celebration Weekend

This weekend was all about the partying in our family! It's always good when there are lot of things worthy of celebrations going on. It might get a little chaotic, fitting everything into the schedule- but you can't be mad when you're celebrating a new baby or a couple of birthdays! Saturday we celebrated one of Jared's cousins, Tara. She's having a little girl, in case all the pink didn't give it away ;)

Tara is such a sweetheart and I wish they didn't live an hour away, but it was good to spend a little time with her, "oohing and ahhing" over all the tiny gifts she opened. Baby Josie is set to arrive just in time for the Super Bowl so I just know she'll be a Bengals fan. Tara's sister Calena did a fabulous job with the party and it was just a really fun afternoon with family we don't see all that often.


Jared and his dad's birthdays are just one day apart (this coming Thursday and Friday!) so we celebrated them together on Sunday. A day complete with lots of delicious food, some games and a serving (or three) of  a double-decker cookie cake. Jared is turning the big 3-0 this week and I can't wait to continue celebrating him all week and weekend long.

All this partying has left me worn out and I've got another insane day at the office. My Bengals play the Houston Texans tonight! I always feel the need to let you guys know my team's schedule- in case you don't follow football (gasp) or in case you just need an annoying Bengals fan constantly talking about their team ;) J.J. Watt- I like you, but not tonight. You're going down... WHODEY!

  2. A double decker cookie cake?! WHAT!? That sounds amazing.

    Rooting for your Bengals tonight, of course! Need some serious work done by AJ (for myself) and Gio (for the hubs)...and Hopkins, but the Bengals can still win ;)

  3. Sounds like a fun weekend! I love baby showers!

    Remember when both our teams were 6-0? Yeah let's not talk about the Packers and how we've lost 3 in a row. Ugh!

  4. Celebrating is always so much fun, and it's always awesome when everything falls into place so you get to share the experience with everyone! Happy early birthday to Jared, it's always so much fun when you get to celebrate all week with the husband! And good luck tonight, although I don't think there will be much competition! I'm fully expecting Andy Dalton to come home and blow the Texans out of the water!
