1. Thursday night, I baked this cake for Hunter's birthday festivities over the weekend. I realize this looks like a five year old girl's birthday cake, but strawberry is his favorite. By the time we actually lit it up and shared it with friends, the icing did NOT look like this. But, I was pretty pleased with my initial Ziploc icing job, and the cake was well-received. Hunter's birthday party(s) were somewhat of a fiasco, but he was happy and we celebrated with a good group of friends, so, success!

2. I spent a few hours on Saturday AND Sunday with these little guys, James and Lewis. Friday afternoon I got to hold a co-worker's baby as well, and I have this theory that ANY day I get to hold a baby is a good day. These boys are the sweetest and certainly kept me on my toes. Uh, being a mom is exhausting #respect.

3. Saturday night I met a few co-workers at Chauhan Ale & Masala House, the coolest new restaurant in town! Maneet Chauhan, of Chopped, selected Nashville as the location of her British Pub food meets Southern meat and three meets classic Indian cuisine eatery.  I loved everything about it. I was mesmerized by the Bollywood movies playing on the wall, and the impeccable make-up of our gorgeous Desi waitress! My food was great too. Masala House just jumped to the top of my list of favorite restaurants in town, and places to take my out-of-town guests.

Sunday we got the most glorious glimpse of Spring weather! You know, terrible as the icepocalypse was, I think it makes this sunshine even better. Everyone just seems more cheerful with the sun out. Otherwise Sunday was pretty laid back, but I'm pleased to report that I checked off nearly everything on my to-do list (filed my taxes! yay!), and ended the day with dinner outside, and Parks & Rec in bed.


Other things going on: Hunter leaves for Colorado tomorrow, I'm house-sitting this week (why did I agree to do this), and Amanda's wedding is on SATURDAY. So this week is going to be bizzay. I am excited and also in disbelief that it's time for her wedding. And as of Saturday I'm giving a speech at the reception. Good thing improv is my specialty ;)

Hope you are having an awesome start to the week!!

AH! You MUST. Especially if you like Indian food. But even if you don't :)

Well, it would definitely be worth the trip!

Oh why were Hunters birthday partys a fiasco? Except for that your weekend seems to have been a busy and beautiful one! I hope you enjoy this busy week with the house sitting and the wedding preps! I cant wait to see the pictures of the wedding on your blog soon :)

We had to reschedule a couple times, but it turned out ok! Thank you Larissa, I am trying to enjoy it all in spite of the business.

Ok, why didn't you come to Colorado with Hunter??? Any chance you two will be making a trip out here? As I had mentioned on Twitter, I'll be in the Bay during the first week of June for my brother's graduation. I can't believe we'll be missing each other again! We should make a point to meet over Christmas if you'll be back in December.
