Mom in Law :)

Only 2 weddings this weekend felt like vacation 🙂 Especially since we had Matt’s mom visiting. She came in town Wednesday night, and although I have been working a lot ever since, we have had some fun evenings and a great day Sunday visiting with my family.

Thursday night we went out to eat at Kona Grill.  We split the edamame, and I ordered the blackened swordfish, and a salad. The we stopped at Yogurtology for frozen yogurt. Fun night out!

Friday I had a wedding to set up.  I loved the natural feel of this wedding. The bride made the table numbers and supplied the cutest little animals to incorporate into the centerpiece. Each table was an animal name rather than a table number:

So many yummy popcorn flavors!

Friday night dinner was a laid back, relaxing, veggie filled dinner in. I made a veggie fajita salad with homemage guacamole and homemade salsa.


Saturday’s wedding was very pretty in purple and green.  The bride supplied many of the centerpiece containers, table numbers, birds, and card birdcage:

Saturday night, we went out to eat at Thai Terrace, a tiny little restaurant in tampa attached to the Howard Johnson Hotel that has great reviews on Yelp. I can understand why.  The food was excellent. we split the appetizer sampler with chicken satay, crab rangoons, spring rolls, and shrimp, and I ordered the red curry. Spicy and delish!

Back to Yogurtology for dessert:


Sunday we didn’t have a wedding. I was happy to have a day off to spend with my fiance, future mom in law, mom, sis, bro in law and niece and nephew. I started my day off early with 45 minutes in the gym and a 4 mile run. Then Matt and I took his mom to see the wedding venue and have a coffee:

After that, we went to my mom and sis’s house for a fun get together:

Evan couldn’t wait to get to those brownies. My pictures didn’t turn out of the yummy bbq chicken, burgers, corn on the cob, baked beans, and salad. And I’m sad I didn’t get any pics of my mom in law. She looked so cute playing tag with Evan and Grace!  Good times! I have the best family!!!!
