Where the Weekend Went...

Now that it's summer, Friday's Happy Hour Jazz Group has moved outside.
It was a great evening with good friends, good food, and good music.

We were celebrating the anniversary of friends, Kari and Alan.

The complimentary anniversary dessert is called Death by Chocolate...
(Is this restaurant implying something here?) 

My Saturday's Work...

I started the complete kitchen cleaning/organizing project.
Overwhelming? Yes...

And...Another Celebration...
Friday=wedding anniversary...Saturday=Birthday!
And not just any birthday...a 50th Birthday!

Happy Birthday, Alan!!

His family hosted a lovely party in their home...
And daughter, Ashley, has mastered the fine art of delicious cupcakes.

Carrot Cake and Red Velvet Cake...Yum!

I hope between your weekend chores,
you had a chance to relax with good friends and family.

Take care,

p.s. Our weekend also includes a late morning brunch.
My hubby makes the most perfect hashbrowns.
Chick here for a print friendly copy of the recipe

Those hash browns look wonderful...there's nothing worse than limp, soggy hash browns! Those are browned just perfectly :)

Now that's a lot of celebrating! It's so nice that you could too :) OMGosh! carrot cake and red velvet cupcakes, my favorites. I think I would be weary of that chocolate cake... lol.
I so need to tackle my kitchen cabinets too. They need painted.
