Well this weekend was a whirlwind. It was nothing I expected and a little crazy for my taste but it was a good time. My Mom ended up surprising me by flying in for my birthday with my great-niece so I ended up going to my Brother’s house for dinner on Saturday night and staying over. On my actual birthday my extended family came over to his house for a BBQ/reunion. Then Sunday night I got together with the girls and it was exactly what I needed after a long day.
None of my chores, cleaning or prep got done so that will have to wait. I am exhausted and ate like crap so this week will be a detox for sure. So here is a big photo dump.
How was your weekend?
Linking up with Biana from B Loved Boston.

Too cute in the Barbie car and I love her hand chillin’ on the back rest! What a whirlwind of a Birthday weekend! Hope you had a good time with your mom surprising you and have a relaxing Monday to recoup! I love that somebody got you an Amazon gift card and Fireball…my sister is obsessed with that stuff. Happy Birthday!!
She was giggling up a storm. It was a huge surprise. Thank you so much for my present. Seamus loved his toy. I actually have never had Fireball before!

Hopefully you can catch up over the three day weekend coming up! I’m glad you got together with the girls Sunday night!
I am already building my list, it’s almost a page long! Ha! It was perfect and just what I needed after a long weekend. So many laughs.
Oh what a wonderful birthday weekend!! Looks like you got some great new goodies! That was so nice of your Mother to fly in and surprise you. Your birthday cheesecake looks so yummie!! Happy Belated Birthday!!
So many nice goodies, it was so nice to receive I was blown away. I was certainly surprised, and the cheesecake was delish!
You have no idea how badly I want that cheesecake inside of me right now.
It was really good, I might have stole another spoonful or two.

I wonder if that mini Fireball bottle in your gift basket even made it through the weekend 😉 haha what a fun weekend to celebrate! Happy Belated Birthday my friend!
Honestly I have never had Fireball!! I know, like can I even call myself a blogger? Haha! Thank you!

That arm on the back of the seat… haha!!! That’s hilarious!
What a fun birthday surprise! A mom visit is always good for the soul.
She was so relaxed, it was too cute. It was really nice to see her.
Birthday surprises are the best even if they rearrange your weekend plans. That birthday cheesecake looks amazing.
It was a total surprise. It was so good, it was fat free but still really sweet.
That cheesecake looks delicious! Glad you had a great weekend!
It was so creamy but so good. Lots of running is in my future! Ha!

Glad you had a great birthday weekend! Weekends with family are always so busy and it’s hard to figure out where all the time goes.
It flew by so fast I have no idea where the weekend went.
sounds like a fabulous weekend, though i can definitely see how you’d be exhausted and need a detox this week!
It was a whirlwind so I will be glad to get back on schedule.
Your birthday cheesecake looks amazing. Holy crap, yum.
It was so good but very decadent too.
Sounds like such a fun birthday weekend and a great surprise seeing your mom and niece! I hope you get some time to wind down now this week. Happy Monday!
I need some serious recovery time this week!
