Party time!

It was such a great weekend, but I am exhausted, so I'll let the pictures do most of the talking and perhaps post something later...

Friday night I started the weekend with this yummy cake from Dean & Deluca:

And celebrated with Miss Margot.

I drove home to Oak Ridge and Saturday we celebrated my Dad's birthday.

We also had 85 people come over to our house for a cancer-free party for my Mom!

The party continued on into the evening when Michelle, Aaron and the Andersons came over to visit!

Alden got to hang out with Aunt Allison.

And Aunt Carrie.

We watched the Duke vs. UNC game that evening (82-50, ahem!)

Gin & Jeff found these buttons at the ACC store. How appropriate for Saturday!

Then on Sunday we celebrated my birthday (26!) with the traditional birthday brunch, complete with mimosas and homemade waffles from my new waffle maker.

Some birthday gifts included this from Ginna (and what a joy it is!)

And this adorable Manhattan print from my parents:

And, my favorite was probably tickets to see these guys in April with my sisters. What a surprise! I know I'm living in 1995, but they're my favorite band and I can't wait to see them live. Thanks, Gin & Lu!

What a great birthday with Al.

And sisters.

Thanks also to all those who called, texted, emailed, tweeted, blogged, Facebooked, bbm'd, snail mailed and personally wished me a happy birthday. It was indeed happy! :)

It was a very happy weekend but I feel like I have a people hangover from the weekend. It's a good kind of hangover! Love you bunches.
