Birthday Celebration

Heya Cuties,
This weekend the mister and I went out to Long Island for his mom's 60th birthday.  Erik's mom, Linda, was looking for a lovely, low key celebration so she arranged for a family dinner at a local italian restaurant and the food was delicious.  After, the plan was to retire to Erik's parents house for some dessert. We hoped to amp up the 60th birthday celebration a bit with some surprises so Erik, his sister and I (sort of, via ideation) put together a "through the years" video featuring pictures from the last 40 years or so.  It was a big hit - tears all around. I also crafted together some favors. Erik's mom is insanely crafty so I just hoped to do her justice. I am a huge sucker for fake flowers.  I used to buy them all the time in high school for myself and decorate my room.  I realize there is a fine line between cute and tacky with fake flowers, but I'm just going to keep trying until I figure it out.  See the results below:
fake flowers, love love 
fake flowers packed in a bag for the trip to LI.  Sort of looks better than the actual favor.
We filled the pots with M&Ms so there was no pressure to let the fake flowers live on until the end of time, as they are apt to do.
One for each couple!
E & I were the lucky winners of the blue flower pot. 

What else, what else on this Sunday night?  I've gotten into watching TV on my ipod on the way to work (don't worry, I'm not driving,) and I think I am going to take on Twin Peaks once I'm all caught up on this season of Survivor.  I'll let you know what I think.  It may take a while.  Also, Lyss and I are having a CoC meeting this week to talk about (maybe) adding some order to this blog and also what exactly it's going to take to get our etsy shop off the ground.
