My beautiful Mom turned 50 over the weekend! She is the most wonderful woman you’d ever meet, I’m so lucky to have such a special lady in my life. She’s always putting everyone else before herself, she has the most positive outlook on life, and lives everyday with such a full heart. She is simply beautiful from the inside out & just radiates with joy & love. I hope that I can become half the woman that she is one day. 🙂
To honor her big day, we planned a clambake at our home & were SO happy to have so many friends & family members come out to celebrate! Thank you to everyone who attended, and to my wonderful family for helping my Dad, siblings & I pull this together! It was such a fun night 🙂
Below is a slideshow of pictures from the party.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY MOM! I love you.
[[FYI – We hired Capt’n Johns Clambakes out of Norwalk, CT to cater the event – they did SUCH a wonderful job. I can’t stop raving about how excellent their staff & food was.]]
Over Memorial Day weekend my boyfriend and I took a trip to Cape Cod to spend some time with friends. I cannot tell you how relaxing, stress-free, and fun of a weekend it was! I wish I did a better job documenting everything, but I’ll share what I do have 🙂
Still on my eating-well kick, I picked up some health-concious snacks at the gas station while we filled up…
Luckily, we didn’t hit any super crazy traffic, but it was still a long ride. Mike asked me an interesting question and I HAD to get it on camera…

Only fair to share a shot of the guys too 😉
We had another yummy dinner that night- steak tips, creamed spinach, and mac & cheese made from the Boston Market recipe (I think ours turned out better!)
Shenanigans ensued all evening, I wish I could share pictures from our charades game, but this is a group of employed professionals 😉 we’ll keep those memories personal!
The next day we just hung out & enjoyed the day. We took so many pictures, here are a few of my faves 🙂
Of course dinner was delish- more steak tips, grilled chicken, kielbasa, lobster, mac & cheese, spinach. SO yummm!
I was craving ice cream all day, and we ended up taking a trip after dinner 🙂 I splurged for a fancy cone with 2 scoops of Oreo Crunch! …What diet..?
Can you tell how excited I was?! lol
We got back that night, and Antonella decided to put her hair extensions on Zack. He looked so funny! All weekend he would randomly sing as if he were a priest, I got a quick video of him singing with his long hair, it’s hysterical!
