Simply Fun!

This was the perfect, simple, fun weekend. On Friday night Forrest and I had no plans and I was wanting to stay in and try out a new recipe. After a little back and forth, we ended up taking everything to the Smiths and cooking for them at their house so precious little Henry could sleep in his own bed. We had a great time cooking together and drinking wine on the screened in porch!

On Saturday Forrest went to the Front Porch Festival at the Back Forty Brewery with Lance. They had a super fun time! I hated to miss the food, band, and fun but at least one of us got to go! I was in Birmingham having a "girls" day. I had lunch with my friend Jennifer and her husband Phillip at Olexa's. Mmm mmm good! I hadn't eaten there in so long and it did not disappoint!! It was great to catch up with the Deans--I haven't seen Jennifer in forever AND they are moving to SC soon so I have to soak up as much time with her while she is close by!! After lunch I sent to see Jenny Sollie in her new home. I miss the Sollies SO much but at least they aren't that far away!! It was so exciting to see how much her children, Emily and Sam, have grown in the few months since they have been in Birmingham. Her home was BEAUTIFUL and we had such a great time catching up I ran her late for her errands! Miss you lots Jenny and Adam!!
Afterwards I went to visit my grandparents before heading to Palm Sunday Vigil Mass. After THAT (I was burning up the roads in Birmingham), I met Randi at Newk's to have dinner and celebrate her birthday---the big 28!!! Then we went together to the AOII Spring Formal Reunion. It was SO much fun!!! Our friend Catherine organized it at Pale Eddie's Pour House downtown and invited ALL AOII alums to come. Every time someone new came up the stairs we were all squealing!! It had been so long since we had seen everyone and it made me feel like we were back in college at a party all over again!!!

The only pic I took all night (Zap was there, so I didn't need to worry!)

On Sunday Forrest got some work done (boo) while I went to the lake with my sister for some sun. OMG--the weather was perfection!! I get really bummed during the week from having to stay inside during such great weather so I was glad to have a reason to take full advantage! We topped off the weekend with a fun dinner with my parents. This week should be wild and busy, so hopefully I will have some fun posts ahead!!
