Just a quick note to say hello and hope you're all having a fabulous weekend so far! I had so much fun at my birthday tea party tonight (even though we were without power all day long due to a massive windstorm, and I had to rush over to my mom's to bake the cupcakes at the last minute!) We started out by candlelight, drinking tea and eating snacks by the fire, and when the power finally came back on (hallelujah!) we quickly got our pizzas made and into the oven. We didn't end up watching You've Got Mail like I'd planned (but there are still plenty of days left in this weekend...), but I had such a great time sitting around, laughing and chatting with my girlfriends. We had some yummy French vanilla cupcakes, and the girls all got to take home a teacup when they went (sort of like the goodie bags of old!)
Do you love my teapot vase? I couldn't resist. It was just so perfect for my tea and cupcakes theme... And the tulips in my garden were probably desperate to get in from the wind and rain, don't you think?
Anyway, had a lovely time, got some very fun presents (stay tuned for photos), and now am off to bed. Tomorrow am hoping to sleep in (the boys are at my parents' house for the night!), go for a latte and then get prettied up for my lunch out with mom, Amanda and Auntie Pat. Am loving this long weekend! Hope you are too...
