Birthday weekend

    Yesterday was my birthday and it was truly a great birthday!  It was my first birthday as a Mom and I think its amazing how things really have changed.  I wasn't concerned about any presents that I was getting or the plans that we had but just that we got to spend time together.   It is amazing how you learn to appreciate the little things in life!
    But we did end up celebrating all weekend long...which means eating all weekend long!  Friday night, Mom watched Anna Riley so Riley and I could go out to eat.  We went to one of my favorite places in Tuscaloosa, Kozy's.  I'm excited about their sister restaurant, Opus, opening in downtown Northport!  Saturday night my parents came over to celebrate both mine and my Mom's birthday because we couldnt celebrate together the weekend before and we cooked homemade pizzas.  And then Sunday, we had lunch after church at my father-in-law's house.  My two sister-in-laws out did themselves on the food...it was soo good!   Yesterday, Anna Riley just knew it was Mommy's birthday because she decided to sleep through the night again Sunday night and then sleep in until 8:45!  SO NICE of her!  Riley ended it all by cooking me his famous steaks with an avocado sauce on top (it is so good!)  So heres to being 27...gaining 5 lbs! haha  OH well...gotta enjoy those birthdays!!

Sounds like a great birthday for a new Mommy!
I must say....Steaks w/advocado sauce sounds so yummy. Is this a secret recipe or does he share?

It sounds like you had a wonderful weekend, and happy late birthday!

It is amazing how a baby just changes EVERYTHING, like they say, but they never say how much you are forever changed.
