Dear Weekend

Where did you go? You went by way too fast. I needed about an 8 day weekend. That would have been nice. So where did the time go? Well...the boy (that's right I mentioned him) and I went and saw, Grown Ups
If you haven't seen it then get in your car right now and go. I loved it. I thought it was funny, touching and all around a great movie. I'll definitely be adding it to my dvd collection. Adam Sandler and the group did not disappoint. 
Saturday, we got a group together and went to Shogun. 
I don't know how many of these are out there but it's a Japanese steakhouse. They fix the food right in front of you. Throw shrimp in your mouth for fun, give you saki shots, etc. It was so good, I loved it! There was only one problem....they gave me way too much food. So in true Jennifer style, I had to get a to-go box. 

Then Sunday was my Mother's Birthday. She wanted me to tell you all, "Thank you, for the sweet messages." She had a really great day. Here's a few pictures from her special day. 
I had blown up about what felt like 100 balloons. I thought I was gonna need an iron lung for sure afterwards. PS: Sorry for the craptastic photos, they were all taken with my iphone. 

Who doesn't love a good cupcake on their birthday?!?
Now that it's Monday, it's off to get my car's new inspection sticker... considering that it expired in May. Ooppsies!

I've been wondering about the Shogun... is it way expensive?
It's okay about your car inspection, last year mine was due in July and I didn't even notice until December! I had been driving back and forth from Morgantown to Huntington and everything and never got caught, thank goodness!
Glad your mom had a good birthday!

Happy birthday to your mom! I like japanese restaurants that cook it right in front of you. There is one that we go to every time we go visit my sister in Colorado. It's SO good.
