Good Morning!

Last night was full of family, fun, and celebrations.  Brian’s brother graduates from Indiana University today, and Brian’s birthday is on Monday, so we spent the night celebrating both occasions.

The theme of the night was a martini party, and Brian’s brother, Adam, played bar tender making us tasty cocktails all night.  The first drink was an “antioxitini.”  Full of berries and deliciousness.

We enjoyed caprese salad:

Shrimp cocktail-tinis:

An apple-cinnamon martini:

Crab stuffed flounder:

Brenna, my sister was even able to join us!

Attempt number 1
Much better!

Brian’s dad even made a meatball-tini!


For breakfast this morning, I whipped up a Zucchini Artichoke Quiche for the family to share…recipe coming soon!

After our delicious breakfast, Brian, his Mom, and I all headed out to Body Pump.  It was Brian’s first class ever, and he did great!  It was a great way to start the day.  Now, it is time to shower and get ready for more graduation festivities.


Happy Cinco de Mayo!

  1. I’ve always wanted a small but really enjoyable party like this. I’m Filipino and were big on family and traditions so it might take some time before I could do something like this. The second photo with your sister Brenna was definitely better. The meatball martini made me say, “Meatball what?” I so want that.

    • It was a great way to spend celebrating 🙂 Yeah, I am not a big meat person so I didn’t try it, but basically it was just a meatball in a martini glass with sauce on top and a little piece of garlic bread…pretty cute if you ask me!
