Mother's Day Weekend Recap.

This weekend was pretty low key, which was nice.  I went shopping, did some laundry, began my pre-packing for my trip next week, read some in my book, and watched a lot of baseball.  I also kicked Emily's butt at Scramble.

Friday evening, my mom and dad and I went to Red, Hot and Blue.  None of us had ever been there before, but we were taste-testing it to see if they would be a good option to cater our rehearsal dinner.  (For the record, the answer to that question is NO.)

I'm such a lightweight that by the time I drank this much of my delicious Sam Adams Summer Ale, I was feeling a buzz.  My mother thought this was hilarious. 

At least the banana pudding was good! 

Then we went to Costco, where I bought an ungodly amount of strawberries.  And my parents got some beautiful hydrangea for both of their mothers.

Sunday, we had our Mother's Day celebration at my parents' house with both of my grandmothers.

My brother helping make lunch.

The Grill Master hard at work. 


Me and Mom.

Our delicious spread. 

It was also Drew's birthday celebration, even though it was a little late...

The big 2-5!

Drew and me with Mom. 

And with Nana. 

And Mamaw. 

My mom, her mom, and my aunt Karen. 

Sunday was also Andy Pettitte's first game back in the majors.  Sadly, the Yankees lost, but I am SO GLAD to see him back in pinstripes!

Hope you all had a great weekend and Mother's Day!  :)
