Birthday Weekend

There were two family birthdays this weekend.

Yesterday evening we went to my sis-in-laws for her birthday dinner. She loves to make food for her own birthday. She’s crazy like that. It was DEE-lish!

Here’s some pictures of the delectable dishes-





She said she found all her recipes on Pinterest.

I made her cake for her though. Hummingbird cake.


It has crushed pineapple, chopped bananas, and chopped pecans. YUM!

Can someone come to my house and take the leftovers? I’m starting a diet today and can’t have this here. Thanks.

It was my mom’s birthday on Saturday.


(that’s my mom)

I kept thinking of it all day but never called her. I’m a bad daughter.  I did talk to her yesterday, though, and wished her a happy birthday and chatted a little.

We don’t have a very close relationship. I wish we did. She’s made some bad decisions in her life, but she’s still my mom. My parents divorced when I was about 19 years old. I’ll save that story for another post.

I just wish I knew her better, and vice versa. I love this old picture of her because I can’t imagine my mom EVER acting like this.

Mostly, I remember her like this-


But she has taught me a lot and I’m grateful for how she raised me because it has made me who I am today.

How was your weekend? What did you do?

I can’t believe it is going to be March this week!

More Perry House pictures tomorrow.
