Last Sunday Josh's family arranged a surprise party for our mom's 60th birthday. So the minute he called and told me I was there, no if and or buts about it. His mom has done more than any friend's mom should do when it comes to me. ( At one point she did take me in for a brief spell and I will forever love her for that.) The spread for her midday party was perfect just like the weather. Memphis weather has been really janky. It is freezing during the week and when the weekend hits its in the 60's I'm not complaining but give me one or the other. (I'll take the weekend weather)
There were lots of veggies and fruit for us Keithon and I to eat.
Since Josh and his husband Charlie are slowly going vegetarian I decided to nab a package of Kroger's Meatless Burger Patties to throw on the grill since there weren' t any grill options for us. Keithon decided he was going to man the grill. ( Under my watchful eye of course) He did a great job if I say so myself.
After our treatments we stop for lunch at a new place called Pita Pit. It is the Subway of the Pita world. I kinda like this place because it is geared towards healthy eating and they have vegan options. I decided on the Falafel but this was not your normal deep fried Falafel. I'm not sure how there prepare it but it is not deep fried. I know this because it kinda falls apart when you bite into it. The other great thing about Pita Pit is the pita bread is super thin which is great for me because I end up throwing half the bread away because I don't want all the calories. Since the bread is so thin they steam it and kinda rip it open and stuff it that way. Great concept that way the filling doesn't end up in your lap or with me in my boobs.
After lunch we headed to my favorite place Five in One were we met up with Bianca made Glitter Tees! The 3 of us have been looking forward to this craft since they announced it! I didn't get a picture of all of our shirts but I made this awesome shirt I can't wait to wear!!! It fits me so well. I am a nerd through and through but if you call me a geek I will punch you in the face. There is a big difference.
This weekend I think I get a break for the birthday madness and I plan on enjoying every minute of it. I love my girls but this year I am learning to take time to myself and just do nothing. Every weekend I don't need to run a million miles a minute.
