3 Birthdays and a Baby Shower

This weekend was all about celebrating. My father in law, husband and Mom all have birthdays back to back to back, which makes for one tired daughter in law/wife/daughter! Seriously, I'm exhausted...and a little sick of birthday cake, but I love these people so much and wanted them all to feel special on their day.

Friday: We celebrated my husband's 29th birthday at Brew River Gastro Pub. He actually heard about it in Cincinnati Magazine and knew that was where he wanted to celebrate. It has a pub atmosphere, but they have their own chef and the food was top notch. We had a great time!
Saturday: I woke up early and made Drew Birthday pancakes. These are now officially a birthday tradition. Then I picked up my mom and grandma and we headed to my best friend's Baby shower. Her nursery theme is owls, which was carried over into the shower decorations. So cute! Saturday night I was beat so I caught up on Downton Abbey, baked a cake and worked on orders for my Etsy shop.
Sunday: Church and a birthday lunch with my family to celebrate my mom, grandma and Drew. We tried out a new restaurant, which was delicious and I made PW's Strawberry Shortcake cake for dessert. Honestly I've never had a better cake in my life. It's that good. PW knows how to make a cake. (Even if it did take me hours to make...it was totally worth it!)

I hope your weekend was fantastic!

Such a fun weekend of LOTS of celebrating! They are exhausting though too ;) If I was adventurous I'd try that strawberry shortcake recipe, but I'm just not the baker haha!
