Birthdays, Barbecues & Bubbly

Hello lovelies! This long holiday weekend was nothing short of perfection. The skies were blue and the sun was shining. The Husband and I were fortunate to spend three wonderful days with friends and family and we even got a bit of relaxation in too. The theme for the weekend started out with massive amounts of bubbles - just how I like it - and ended with babies, birthdays and even a few of my favorite dogs.

TownHall offered up the perfect holiday brunch complete with bloody marys and beer for the boys and mimosas for the girls.

An 11am brunch meant we had the entire afternoon to lounge in the yard before hitting two rooftop parties that evening. I pretty much spent the entire afternoon with lots of glossy mags on a picnic blanket in the shade of our huge cherry tree.

Saturday was all about toasting to Alicia in a #celebrateallyourshit champagne party that she hosts every year.

Sunday brought a first birthday celebration for our nephew Tanner. It also meant my brother-in-law broke out the smoker for a good old-fashioned family barbecue. I cannot get enough of these boys! Penton just turned two and it's insane how much fun these guys are.

A long weekend like this makes me very happy that I have the rest of the week off to recover. Summer only lasts a short time here in the CLE and I'll be taking full advantage of every possible moment.
