Meet the Sullivans: Weekend Wrap-Up

Weekend Wrap-Up

This weekend was pretty great!

On Friday night Keith and I went out to a nice dinner and made a quick stop at Target for some birthday cards, magazines and the Social Network for Keith. My husband is so funny, he loved the movie Social Network but refuses to join Facebook. I, on the other hand, thoroughly enjoy my Facebook and check it regularly.

On Saturday Keith worked at the hospital and I cleaned our apartment all morning and then ran over to Bella Nails for a relaxing manicure and pedicure. I brought two new magazines and was able to flip though both from front to back! I just love doing that. It is such a guilty pleasure and now I have a pretty shade of pink on my fingers and toes. On Saturday night we went over to Keith's sister Kelly's house for dinner with her family and Keith's brother Kevin's family (yep, their names all start with "K", and he has two other sisters Kari and Teri). We hung around and caught up and laughed and it was so much fun! We even watched some old family movies. Keith was even a cutie as a baby.

Today we spent the morning doing more cleaning and cooking before my family came over to celebrate my Grandpa's 85th birthday! Nothing big, we basically threw it all together this morning, but everyone had a nice time. See pictures below:


Birthday balloons! 


The spread, sorry about the foil! 



Caesar salad. 



Spinach-Basil lasagna.



Italian lunch.


Aunt Kathy and my mom Vicky.
 

I hung that mirror (not very straightly) on Saturday too. It served as a Birthday sign holder today.


 

Keith and my Dad hanging out, visiting and watching the football game. 



My sister Kathee and I. 
 
Grandpa loved having our whole family together for his birthday! He joked that he must be growing younger instead of older because the cake only had 2 candles. He's a really funny guy! PS. He is wearing the hat my Mom gave him as part of his gift, he doesn't normally wear those hats out and about. :)


The whole family together! I love my tripod (thanks, Barbara!) because it allows me to get a picture of everyone together rather than having crooked ones from propping it up on books or missing someone who is behind the camera. 


My mom, Aunt Lesley, Aunt Kathy and Grandpa. My Aunt Lesley is rarely ever serious, can you tell?


Keith caught me off guard!
It was so fun to finally host my family in my own home. I have been wanting to do that for so so so many years. 

Now that everything is all cleaned up Keith and I are about to watch the Social Network and relax! 

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend!
