Brunch and a Birthday

Well friends, it has been a week since my last post, and I'm happy to report that I have officially recovered from my grueling (please hold back your laughter) run in Fort Worth. My outer hips no longer feel like they need replacing, and I have successfully regained full feeling in my hands that were once plagued with a mild case of frostbite. Now, enough with the idle chitchat, let's get on with the post.

The "original" Mimi was in town this past weekend and stayed with my parents for a few days. Therefore, I thought it only appropriate (or just a great excuse) to have an all-out brunch fest on that Sunday. We toasted the day with some refreshing mimosas and chowed down (aka stuffed ourselves until we couldn't eat anymore) on my quiche and monkey bread. In their defense, Michelle did make a delightful fruit salad and the pops steamed some breakfast sausage. Here are some pics from the festive occasion.

cheers to a yummy brunch

This past weekend, on the day of March the 7th, we "cerebrated" (that was for you Crystal and Meg) Cryssie's 2nd Annual 25th Birthday. Unfortunately, she had to attend a wedding during the day, but we made up for that later that night. About 30 of her closest friends had dinner and drinks at Blue Mesa in Addison. After that, a few of us came back to our house for champagne and cake. I made the birthday girl my amaretto-soaked cake with cream cheese frosting and we had a little Andre to wash it down.

As an aside, I can't believe this past Saturday marked like the 17th birthday I've helped Crystal celebrate. This is just a testament to what a loyal and true friend I have in her. Happy Birthday Crys! I pray this year in your life is blessed beyond belief!!!
