Birthday Weekend

It was a weekend filled with big hair and parties around these parts! First, Neve turned 4 with an Olivia themed bash. Then we hung out with Josh for his big 3-2. And Sunday was St. Patrick's Day and meeting up with people in the surprisingly frigid DC temps.

It was also the anniversary of the death of a friend of mine from high school, which gave me all kinds of thoughts and feelings and left me a bit sad, clouded and useless. No need to go into it here, but needless to say I was happy that I got to spend my weekend with my family and my homies. I mean, I saw all my siblings on Saturday, and it's always pretty baller when that happens. And in DC, I got to meander some (once again, surprisingly) empty streets in the cold with a cup of hot coffee and a dead cell phone in my pocket, which was really nice. Oh, and I slept for about a million hours. Sleeping rules. And then it snowed on Monday. Like, real snow with accumulation and closed schools. In mid-March. Way to go, Virginia!

So, without further ado, a photo dump:

Monsieur Purray and his feathers

The Birthday Girl

I can't believe how big they're getting
Neve couldn't have been more thrilled when it was time to cut the cake. As soon as people started singing, she looked as if she had just won an Oscar. Both of them are just so funny and cool and vibrant and expressive (and ridiculously sarcastic for 4 and 6 year olds) and this is me being a weird, gushy aunt but I can't help it, they're just awesome kids.

St. Patrick's Day!

I got to the pub early (or on time, which is still early since I'm typically always 10-20 minutes late), and met an actual Irish guy named Owen who was in DC for a conference. Not gonna lie, I felt pretty smug about making an Irish friend in an Irish pub on St. Patrick's Day. But then I had a few car bombs and some Jameson and when I got home I was hungover, which I did not feel smug about. 


last pic before my phone died. Note the snazzy gloves.

I hope everyone had a good weekend! Also, did anyone else wake up this morning thinking it was Tuesday? I did. So did Cara. Weird.
