Birthday Blessings

My mom’s birthday was September 24, and I didn’t get the chance to do a birthday post so I wanted to recap our birthday celebration weekend for her.

At The Elephant Bar Restaurant
Mom’s birthday was a Saturday this year, but we partied the whole weekend! Friday evening we had a party at our house with some friends. Mom did a BBQ dinner for everyone and I baked her a cake.

We opened some presents, but somehow in the midst of me editing pictures the six photos I had of the present opening at the party got erased from my computer and they are not in my recycle bin. I am so confused as to what happened. I do have pics of her opening some presents from me before the party and on her actual birthday Saturday.

 We went to Sacramento for the weekend – Saturday/Sunday to a.) celebrate her birthday and b.) attend a bridal shower for a girl we used to babysit. The bridal shower was on Sunday, so when I realized it was mom’s birthday weekend I told her we should just get a hotel and go down for the weekend, celebrate her birthday and already be in the area for the bridal shower. We had a great time in Sacramento. We got there in the early evening time and did some shopping – both for ourselves and to purchase some items for the bridal shower and then we went to dinner (see picture above). We ate at the Elephant Bar restaurant. Mom had been there once before and always wanted to go back again. I had never been there. The food was so good! I had a coupon for $7.00 off a $25.00 order. I have a coupon for everything!

After dinner we went back to our hotel and sat in the hot tub. After the hot tub we went back to our room, showered and then played some card games…that I won all of! 🙂

It was a great weekend and I enjoyed spending it with my mom! Happy Birthday mom! I hope this year brings you lots and lots of joy.
