The weekend included some pretty fun festivities. It included a birthday AND a wedding! And not just any birthday — FW’s birthday! He turned one 🙂
Here is how we celebrated …
I started off my weekend with a cocktail. It’s not everyday your baby turns one! Plus we finally opened the Mescal we brought back from our trip to Mexico City.
FW got some cards and gifts in the mail. We are so lucky to have so many family and friends thinking of us.
We celebrated with FW by going to the Zoo. It was his first time there.
He took a nap while hanging out with some giraffes.
A family selfie.
AND a chocolate and vanilla cupcake! He did not want to touch the chocolate one and ate a few bites of the vanilla frosting. Just like his momma- not a chocolate fan and prefers the frosting to the cake 🙂
B also made us pizza for dinner. Well, not for FW. He’s still not a pizza fan.
Saturday morning started with a run along the park and beach. I got in 4ish miles while FW slept.
And then we attempted to show him the water. He was undecided.
That night we had a wedding to attend! B’s friend Bobby was getting married.
Their cocktail hour was at the aquarium! How cool is that?
Sunday morning came too early – staying until past 1 a.m. and then getting up early with a baby is hard! But I had something else to look forward to on Sunday – a blogger brunch at Saks Fifth Avenue.
After lunch and a little shopping, B, FW and I took a short nature walk near the water. We had never been to this path and it was so cool to see all the birds and look down on the lake.
We finished the weekend with Chipotle for the family. A burrito for B, sofritos salad for me and a last minute order of quesadillas for FW. And surprisingly, he actually ate a few bites!
And that was it. A pretty fun, busy weekend!
Some questions for you:
- What’s the coolest venue you’ve been to for a wedding?
- What’s your Chipotle order?

Oh, that fashion show has my interest! Like you, I do not care for chocolate cake either…though I do like chocolate in general (especially dark chocolate)
I’m another one who prefers the vanilla icing to the chocolate cake!
What a busy yet fun weekend! That is very cool about the reception.
Which lake/beach do you run on?
Your baby is adorable! Happy Birthday to him. I read your post from your trip to Mexico City – glad you enjoyed it. I’ve been there a few times – the last time I was there was 6 years ago. The anthropology museum was awesome. I also saw a performance of the Ballet Folklorico de Amalia Hernandez and loved it so much that I decided to see them again when they were in Chicago.
