Long Weekend Wrap Up

We had quite the weekend around here! We made sure Mommy had the purrfect long birthday weekend beginning on Thursday when Daddy took her to her most favorite place on the Oregon coast - Cape Lookout...
She loves how the super tall trees and rocky cliffs go right down to the wide sandy beach. So, good for Daddy for kicking the weekend off right! Her birthday on Friday was great too but it rained on Saturday so Isabella discussed what to do to keep the good things happening...
I decided to help Mommy make a beach glass bracelet for herself. I thought it'd be fun for her to start her squizillion and seventh year off with change so I told her to randomly choose beads to use for her bracelet. Well, sometimes change isn't so good. Our CPA too much left brain perfectionist Mommy nearly had a panic attack trying to be random! Each silver and beach glass bead is different in each row but she survived and I think it turned out okay...
The rain ended in time for Mommy to make another change on Saturday - she attended her first Oregon state fair plus she attended her first country music concert with Daddy and her friend Laura. She doesn't listen to country music so she and Daddy were the only two in the audience who didn't know the songs but Gary Allan did put on a good show...
Before the concert, the two ladies in front of them took elebenty hundred selfies so Mommy kept leaning to the left or right trying to stay out of their pics. Well, since this is the year of change, Mommy decided to be silly and starting waving in the pics. At first the ladies didn't notice but when they did, they found it funny so they took this pic with Mommy (in black) and Laura (the innocent bystander)...
Yesterday we finished up a necklace to go with the blingy No-No bracelet from last week but mostly we relaxed and savored the remaining weekend. We're not sure how much more change Mommy can handle this year but we'll see. At least she enjoyed her birthday and part of that is from your birthday wishes last week so thank you!

What did you do this weekend?

Hope you have a wonderful week!

That first picture is so pretty and now I am laughing like crazy over your mommy waving in that picture. Change is good sometimes and it looks like your mom is having fun with it.

That really made me and mum laugh, especially your mom having a panic attack trying to be random! That's a lovely picture of her waving! Glad she had a great birthday xxx

Katie Isabella said...

I smiled too, Girls. Her trying to be random kills me. I know mom isn't a CPA but she is extremely orderly. The kind who makes the bed when someone gets out to go to the bathroom in the night. I'm kidding but I would not be surprised. <3

Well, we think Mom hit the jackpot for her birthday and then had a super weekend. Her bracelet is lovely, and how we envy her trip to the beach.

Sounds like your mom had a purr-fect birthday weekend! Your first country concert? I'm a HUGE country music fan :)

Ahahaha. Love the waiving selfie photobomb! Overall, it looks like a very successful weekend. I wouldn't have known a single one of the songs at that concert, either.

Sounds like such a wonderful weekend!
I'm glad you got to the coast and made a bracelet for yourself :) I don't listen to much country music either, but any live music is good music :)
Harley had a great weekend camping and air boating. Not much sun, but we still had fun.

I am VERY proud of you jumping in and being silly. You know I'd be doing that, right? :) Gotta be silly and have fun. And I always find that others are willing to jump in and be silly with you.

I'm glad you had a nice birthday. It looks LOVELY out there.
