Weekend Highlights.

This weekend was jam packed with activities and lots of celebrating! I'm looking forward to a low key holiday weekend coming up and then relaxing on our babymoon the following weekend! 

-I co-hosted a shower for one of my longest friends, Caroline! It was a woodlands themed shower, which goes along with Baby Ben's nursery. I'll do a separate post on it, but it all turned out really cute! 

-We celebrated Cameron's birthday with his parents with dinner at Indaco followed by cocktails (and mocktails) at 492

Appetizer: Burrata with shaved asparagus, pickled bluberries, and asparagus aioli
Recommend?: Yes! 

My Entree: Tonnarelli with lump crab meat, saffron, mint, breadcrumbs and paremesan
Recommend?: No. While the crab meat itself was tasty, there was no real flavor to this dish. 

Cameron's Entree: Garganelli with braised lamb, ricotta, herbs, and breadcrumbs
Recommend?: YES! I had major food envy with Cameron's dinner. It was much more flavorful that mine. 

Dessert: Espresso tart with chocolate ganache, biscotti, and espresso cream
Recommend?: Yes, how could you go wrong??

-Gus announced on his Instagram page that he was going to be a big brother x2!
That's a 3D pic of the babes!
-Cameron painted the nursery (yay!!!) while I did super fun stuff like laundry, de-cluttering, etc. 

-We celebrated June birthdays for my family, which are my sister, Cameron, my grandaddy, and my mom! My mom made the most amazing Kahlua cake with white russian icing! Reminded me of one of the layers of our wedding cake! 

Hope you all had a great weekend! Another Twin Tuesday post coming tomorrow!
