Weekend Recap – Celebrating Dad’s 50th!

This weekend was all about my dad. My mom and I with the help of family and friends were able to pull off the best surprise party on Saturday night.

My dad is a hardcore Patriots fan – so it was only fitting that we did a football themed party. We also asked everyone to wear their favorite teams to the party and I was surprised at how many people showed up wearing their gear.

We made meatballs and my dads famous sauce (he actually made it) with pasta, jalapeño wontons, and had a few platters for people to enjoy. We got dads cake from one of the best bakery around Whites Bakery and an Ice Cream cake (per dads request) from our favorite local shop The Ice Cream Machine.

My dad had the best time and I am so happy we were able to pull this off. This is the second surprise party this year that I’ve planned – I am happy its the last, because while they’re so much fun they’re stressful!

Have a great week everyone!

Weekend Shenanigans

How was your weekend dears?! Mine was incredibly busy but full of so much fun! It literally felt like I didn’t stop at all, which i am 100% okay with!

Now onto our weekend!

Friday, we had a low key date night with dinner at one of our favorite local spots.

Saturday morning my friend Brittany came up and we headed to pick Sunflowers! It was the most perfect day because it wasn’t humid as all get out like it has been.

Saturday night was Bobby’s surprise 30th! I don’t know how I pulled it off but somehow I did with the help of some awesome people.

Bobby had the most amazing time and even with a few hiccups it ended up being a great time and that’s all that matters. Good food, good friends and good times!

Hope you weekend was just as great as mine!

Our Engagement Party

HAPPY TUESDAY! This weekend was by far one of the best weekends this year yet! So of course I had to share with you guys. Hope you enjoyed your weekend as much as I enjoyed mine!

Saturday morning started out with my favorite donuts ever Allies Donuts! If you’re ever in the RI area you gotta check them out.  Then mid morning there were TORRENTIAL downpours and guys I was so nervous that the weather wouldn’t clear by the time of the party, but thankfully it did!

I wanted to share some photos of our engagement party with you all. My parents hosted the most amazing party at my aunts house with the help of my aunt & uncle and Bobby’s parents. We were surrounded by family, friends, and some of our soon-to-be wedding party (we haven’t asked yet!). The party was amazing and kicked off the next year and a half of wedding festivities just how I imagined.

Thank you, Thank you, Thank you to all of the family that pulled this party off. We couldn’t be any luckier to have so much love given to us and we CANNOT wait to celebrate with everyone again at the wedding!
