Weekend Recap: My Brother's Birthday!

This past Friday was my brother's birthday!  To celebrate him, we all headed to Indy for a super fun weekend.  Since this time of year is busy for me at work, we waited until Saturday morning to head up that way.  Luckily for us, the drive was uneventful.  The plan once we got there was to enjoy a late lunch and then hang out until a hockey game that evening.  Lunch was super delicious - hamburgers with all the fixings, kidney bean salad, chopped salad, 'Oprah' fries (the baked fries from Oprah's cookbook), chips and raw veggies.  Yum!  I am hungry just thinking about it.  My brother's dessert of choice were pumpkin cookies from our hometown bakery.  Since I am a bit difficult and don't really care for those, I instead had an apple with caramel sauce - works for me!  The day was absolutely gorgeous so shortly after lunch we headed outside to play with Jack and enjoy the nice weather.  I have mentioned this before, but my sister in law became a realtor this summer (check out her YouTube channel here!).  Her agency hosted an event at the Indy Fuel game Saturday, and we got to attend as her guests.  I haven't been to a sporting event in awhile, so I was excited to go.  I feel like live games are always so fun!  It did not disappoint and we had a lot of fun.  The day was a long one, so we left before the end of the game, but the Fuel won!  The next morning we all had breakfast together, before heading out.  






It felt like a super quick visit, but it was so nice to all be together.  I am thankful the holidays are right around the corner because that means even more time together!

Hope you all had a great weekend!

  5. What a fun weekend celebrating your brother! The hockey game looks like it was a lot of fun too- the sumo wrestlers almost look like emojis pasted in at first glance, lol.
