Weekend Wrap Up 31

Hello all you wonderful people... We have been celebrating!!! The last 2 weekends were reserved for birthday parties for my princess Reya who turned 7...
The first weekend we had an "Around the World" birthday party (click here for more pictures) where all of Reya's school friends came dressed in costumes of different countries and then visited the continents around the world. Oh the time it took me to deck up just this one wall...
The next weekend was a "70s inspired Love and Peace party" for our close friends and family. The wall was decked up again... and it took just as time as the last week as I had to make all the decorations myself! Note to self... Choose a theme for which decorations are readily available in stores... wink wink!
So after working hard the past 2 weekends, when finally when this weekend arrived, both me and this wall here were ready... to just chill and relax... and that's what we did.
Friday night was an impromptu dinner at a friend's place. Yummy food and good conversation can really energize you no matter how tired you are! The highlight of the weekend was Reya's gymnastics annual exhibition where all the girls in the team perform. All the girls were amazing. And after a long time, I blissfully spent a few hours working on my front yard and back yard... The Roses are looking good this year.
And after all the R & R, I am now ready to tackle the Monday!!!
