O.T.W.-Wishing I was 21

My sweet sis-in-law hit a major mile stone over the past weekend. She turned the big 2-1!! She's the youngest of Ryan's siblings (ryan's the oldest).

We've been talking about Ali finally becoming "legal" for months. Planning to spend the weekend celebrating in Auburn.

Well, I went all in. I wanted to pretend I was turning 21 as well. We ate dinner at a favorite hot spot, Mikata. Sushi, cocktails, hibachi grill, fried rice = happy place!! Dinner really set the tone for the evening.

After dinner, we took it to an apartment party... I'm telling you, I felt like I was back in college reliving a Friday night. We stayed at the apartment for a while before heading downtown. We went to another old haunt, Sky Bar. At every turn-- waiting in line to get in, in the front bar, the back bar-- I saw old faces. It was beautiful.

After Sky Bar, Deidra and I decided to venture to meet some other friends at "Speak Easy" (it used to be "In Italy" for those of you who might not be in the loop).

At Speak Easy we danced, and sang and carried on...  after dinner we headed to my friend, Kaci's house for a slumber party. When I was in school at Auburn I lived with Kaci. We stayed up until close to 4 o'clock in the morning just chatting. It was so great to get to catch up with my old roomie... it was just like old times.

Saturday morning came fast and hard, but we rallied and got up to catch ESPN's College Gameday, which happened to be in Auburn over the weekend {however, we watched it on TV while enjoyed bfast casserole, as Firday night's nonsense slowed us down a little bit}.

Saturday consisted of tailgating and debauchery...

It was a beautiful weekend, all around. Ali became a grown up. I pretended not to be one... It couldn't have been any better.

My cousin is expecting a baby in November and it's going to be a little boy so on Sunday we celebrated by honoring Baby Heath! I love a baby shower that includes a glass or wine or margarita for the party goers! Yes, Please!

The baby shower was beautiful and Baby Heath got lots of great things!

The tough part is that his Daddy is already trying to make him an Alabama fan....
