Andrew’s Birthday Brunch

There are two things I love more than most other things…my husband and pancakes.

I invited our immediate families over for some celebratory birthday brunch on Saturday. I even made cute invitations. ;)

I did all the decorating and flower arranging myself…I was so thrilled with how everything came out! :) We {obviously} went with a nautical theme. ;)

Props to Homeland for having awesome flowers. I made all of the floral arrangements in the whole house for $30 altogether!

I’m SO sad that I didn’t get any pictures with all the food set out perfectly before we ate, but making breakfast food for 10 people and getting all of it ready at the same time is harder than I thought. ;) Just imagine there are chocolate chip pancakes on those super cute plates my sweet sister-in-law bought me. ;)

This is an iPhone shot after most of the pancakes were gone. Lol.

The turquoise silverware is from Target a couple years back, and I’m pretty sure I got the napkins from IKEA.

When I finally sat down, the chocolate pancakes took all my worries away. ;)

Sorry this picture is half-eaten food. Haha. But this is kinda what the island looked like before…there was another plate of chocolate chip pancakes as well, but I’m sure I devoured it.

Dad and Brad look like they’re discussing something very important. ;)

And I’m really sad I didn’t take a picture of our cute drink station either, but we had super cute straws… even if no one except Alyssa and I used them. ;)

After the feast and after Andrew opened some fabulous presents, we played with Jackers. :)

Jack did so good with everybody. He still gets so excited and hyper with other people, but he’s much more agreeable outside where he has lots of sticks to chase. ;) He was pretty tuckered out!

And yesterday, on Andrew’s actually birthday, his day started with breakfast in bed.

We went to church and Buffalo Wild Wings afterward with our families. Then Andrew took a super long and much-deserved nap. :) I gave him an Old School Bagel Cafe gift card and a new shirt, and Friday I’m taking him to Six Flags. :)

And to end a lovely birthday weekend, we snuggled this pooch. :)

Happy Monday!
