What a Weekend!!

I don't know what else to say but "WHAT A WEEKEND, WHAT A WONDERFUL, AMAZING, ENCHANTED WEEKEND!" Oh and let's not forget, "romantic". That seemed to be Adrianna's favorite word this weekend. LOL

Friday (her actual birthday) was spent going for pizza and purchasing 2 plush princesses at The Disney Store in The Round Rock Outlets. After that we went home, played some games and dressup, took a bubble bath and got ready for the Daddy Daughter Dance! After I got her all dressed up with her "Diamond Crown" (that's what she called it!) and her rose wrist corsage that I made for her special day, she stared in her full length mirror posing and saying "Wow this is going to be so romantic!" Gotta love those princess movies-ha!
After the dance, she went with her friends and their "dates" to Baskin Robbins for Ice Cream and boy was she a chatterbox when she got home! Erika was just leaving after we finished up the Belle Cake . . . (Thanks for working your magic and helping with my low patience level,LOL) Adrianna went on and on about her evening and was SO EXCITED about her Belle Cake.... After she went to bed, Chris and I stayed up until about 2am finishing up the decorating and present wrapping. Our house was truly transformed into a kingdom, at least Adrianna and I completely thought so! She woke up absolutely amazed at the house and so excited for her princesses to arrive that she kept asking over and over again, "Is it 1:00 yet?". Mommy worked extra hard on this year's party and boy was it a success! Everything went smooth, the kids played games, got their fingernails painted, lipgloss applied, danced the day away and ended it with playing outside in our CRAZY 80 degree weather! That was a first since every single birthday, it never has failed to be freezing cold and usually either some snow or freezing rain . . . I swear God was working with me this year to make it work as miraculously as it did, that's for sure. Almost everyone left right around 3:00 and those who hung out, well we turned it into a big barbeque party for the adults, LOL! Beer, wine, burgers, chips and queso, playing outside with the kids and chatting away---now that was a way to end the day or should I say night since my friend Cat and her family hung out until around 11 I think!

So, today I'm beat! We spent the morning taking down decorations, cleaning up, preparing the menu for the week, activities and playdates, as well as laying out work clothes since playtime is over and Chris is back to work tomorrow after a much needed, relaxing week off. Adrianna, Beni and I went over to Hutto Elementary school to register her for TBall, did a little shoe shopping and that is how we went out with a bang for the weekend! :)

I am so thankful for all the wonderful friends and family that came to celebrate Adrianna's birthday, and I'm amazed that it went so smoothly and I wasn't freaking out or stressed this weekend. I am still asking Chris, "How in the world did it all go so well? How did I not freak out this year! This was the biggest thing I've done and it was the one time I didn't freak on party day, so funny!" Yesterday was another reminder of how lucky I am to have the people that I have in my life. I want to cry as I look at the pictures because I'm so happy and my family was so happy . . . okay, enough of the sappy stuff, enjoy the slideshow!
