Our Weekend

Jan 24, 2011

We had a busy weekend! Plans both nights plus a birthday party in between.
Friday night we met up with Matt’s sister Britton and her husband Rob for some drinks and dinner at the High Spirits Lounge. Don’t judge us, this a bar inside a Holiday Inn, but it has some of the best views of city.

Matt is a gold card member, meaning $1.50 glasses of wine and $3 liquor drinks. You can’t beat that! We had a great time catching up and hearing all about their recent honeymoon to South Africa.

Not sure what Sterling and I thought was so funny!

On Saturday we headed to Carson’s Second Birthday Party. Sadly I didn’t get any pictures of the birthday boy or my girl Caycee, but the party was amazing! Caycee did an awesome job putting everything together. She had a huge jump castle out back, that Matt and Sterling enjoyed!

Sterling eating all the birthday boy’s toys!

After the birthday party we headed over to our friends, Alissa and Alec’s house for some homemade Beef Stew and delicious red wine!
Second family picture of the weekend, I feel like we never get pictures with all three of us, usually just one or the other with Sterling!

Our gracious hosts, Alissa and Alec who have a gorgeous house downtown!

The boys trying their best to look manly!

Oh, and Sterling has become obsessed with toilets, Lord help us. He wants to stick his hands in one anytime he sees it!

Hope everyone had a great weekend!

    New to your blog! I absolutely love the name Sterling! It's so unique! How funny that he is obsessed with toilets! As long as its clean water that he's sticking his hands in…don't forget to flush! Haha! : ) Y'all are an adorable family!

  13. I would love to have a cocktail there for $3.00!!! i can't wait to drink again!

  14. That Holiday Inn does have pretty good views šŸ™‚ My parents used to always stay there when they came to visit! No judging. Your family is so adorable!!!

    I feel your pain! Our little guy is toilet obsessed too! He loves to play in the water, dip TP into it and swirl it around. (grossness!)

    I need to get some toilet locks for the lids (afraid he'll fall in one day!)

  16. Natalie says:

    So funny – my daughter went through a toilet love. Insanely gross! She wanted to put everything down it. Now, we are potty training so she no longer wants anything to do with it!
