Good and bad weekend...

Saturday was great. We went with our friends Nancy and Lily to Ava's birthday tea party. Here's the girls ready to go with their gifts in hand...


Michele went all out and the tea party table looked like a little girl's fantasy...


she made custom placemats with the guests' photos on them and all kinds of other goodies for each place setting...


She had a little white hat for each girl and lots of fun ribbons, flowers, etc to decorate them with. Don't they totally look like the ladies who lunch? Lily was so cute with her pearls on.



They each got to help make their own bouquet of flowers...


and they got pink feather boas...how fun!


Thanks, Michele, for a great party. As you can see, Lauren left with an even bigger bag of goodies than she came in with! The girls had a blast.


Later that evening, Lauren and I had a couple of friends over (Joe was working) and we tried out a few new recipes for dinner from the Barefoot Contessa and Giada. Everything was great. I love recipe nights!

Sunday I woke up feeling really sick and by lunch I had a throbbing headache, chills, and a fever. Unfortunately, Joe was working and it was just me and Lauren. I don't think we left the sofa all day! Poor thing had enough TV that day for the whole month! I'm pumped up on cold medicine and feeling better now.
