dan & i were headed out last night to a fancy dinner of mellow mushroom
pizza all by our sweet little selves
& were reviewing the last week.
i said something like, " no way. that was this past whatever day?".
it's been non stop music.
remember my "ohmygah i'm so busy" pet peeve ?
we have not stopped
i'm not even sure when.
in fact i mentioned last night that i'd love a little january blizzard
so i'm forced to stay home
crank up my photoshot skills
read a book again in 2 days
& maybe have time to get a hair cut.
emi turned 16 last week
& why have a big party and get all the celebratin' over in one fell swoop
when we can have multiple events.
all week long?
i'm just kidding.
when the girls were younger we always made a big fuss over birthdays
& had themed birthday parties
complete with super cute printed invitations and all.
(before the age of evite thankyouverymuch).
we've had pony parties, pottery painting parties
madeline tea parties
gymnastics parties, ballet parties.
we've had character parties with winnie the pooh, anastasia and of course
as the girls got older we cruised in to slumber parties
movie theatre parties & putt putt.
but a big party for 16 year olds completely overwhelms me.
i am not a party planner
the week of celebration.
emi is not a fan of cakes & cookies.
she's more of a candy & salty treats kinda girl.
her friends loved on her with a plethora of balloons at school that day.
& a special call from Kate
three peanuts, Kate :)
family dinner at Chow Baby
friday night was friends dinner at Macaroni Grill
saturday morning she & i went on a little shopping spree
with her birthday morning.
destination: the new Lilly Pulitzer shop at Phipps Plaza
& since ya'll know i'm so weird
i'm sure the fact that i fell. in. love
with the handpainted fitting room
( by a couple of "the" lilly print designers)
comes as no surprise.
& yes those are painted peanuts on the ceiling.
i just could not get over myself in there.
having lived all my life (minus a few years in nashville )
in atlanta georgia
i was smitten with all the peach state love!
we wrapped it up with a fancy sandwich
as we were all broke at that point
with emi's dearest friend katelyn and her mama carrie.
we had an awesome week full of making memories
& loving on our sweet sixteen brown eyed girl.
new wordpress coming soon!
