Oh, how I love weekends like the one we just had! My sweet mom babysat Leighton on Friday so we could have a double date with our friends at the best burger place in town, Bocado. We thoroughly enjoyed our night talking about their baby on the way and eating lots of burgers and fries.

Our favorite thing of the week was celebrating our sister-in-law Lauren’s 30th birthday! She is truly the sister I never had, and we love her more with each passing year. She’s the sweetest, most loving aunt to LL, and we had the best time partying with her, my brother, and tons of friends and family on Saturday! Andrew surprised her with a morning yoga class filled with lots of friends, and then he cooked a huge brunch at their house, and we continued the fun all afternoon. Leighton got to meet so many new friends and wanted to eat Lauren’s birthday beads all day. One of the highlights was a collection of videos Andrew got some of her friends to make for her — the best one being a Lego stop-motion re-enactment of Lauren’s famed bicycle crash from childhood. I’m still chuckling thinking about it.

We had a delicious brunch at South City Kitchen with my parents on Sunday, and we took Leigjton on a long walk on the Silver Commet Trail to walk off brunch and enjoy the gorgeous spring-like weather.  We continued Lauren’s birthday celebrations with a family dinner at Novo Cucina in Dunwoody, which is an offshoot of the popular Inman Park restaurants, Fritti and Sotto Sotto. It’s a cool space, and we all raved about the pasta, pizza, arancini, and gelato. They also have a self-serve wine bar… I can’t wait to go back!

It was truly a perfect weekend!
