Celebrating Mal’s 35th Birthday

Good morning and happy Monday to you! I hope you had a lovely weekend! 🙂

Saturday morning started with our usual CrossFit + donuts and iced coffee from Coffee Shack… but the workout was ridiculous this time. Holy quads. I paired up with my friend Marisa and thank goodness that I had her to keep me going. I was struggling at points, but I made it… without dying… just barely. I mean, Karen (150 wallballs) + 50 Squats Cleans? Um, yea, I’m still insanely sore today!

Post-CrossFit, Qman and I hit up Coffee Shack for an iced coffee and donuts.

We shared a chocolate frosted one – his favorite!

And then brought home a glazed donut for Dada – his favorite!

Back at home, we did a few things around the house to get ready for Mal’s birthday party and then I headed out to Whole Foods to pick up our catering order and a few last-minute items (while Mal put Quinn down for a nap).

When I returned home, it was just about party time!

Before long, our hometown friends (+ their families) arrived to celebrate Mal’s birthday.

There were lots of yard games.

And kids!

And food! Mal asked for wings, mac & cheese, and Caesar salad for his party menu and that’s exactly what he got! (I like that he kept things simple for me!)

And, of course, Mal’s birthday wouldn’t be complete without Funfetti!

These three are my whole world. <3

I love that Quinn eats his cupcakes the same way that I do! 🙂

Once everyone had cupcakes, we played in the yard for awhile more before settling down on the porch. We had a fire and listened to some tunes before saying goodbye to the hometown crew. Mal said he had an awesome time celebrating his birthday, so I’d say his party was a success! 🙂

Question of the Day

Would you rather the frosting or cake or both?
