This past week, Ben and I have been busy being crafty in preparation for his mother’s surprise retirement party.  She has been teaching elementary school for 31 years (!!!) and this will be her last year.


Ben’s dad planned the surprise party at The Elbow Room.  It was a great party – with a fun atmosphere, delicious food, and a very entertaining band… and adorable decorations (!!!)DSC02544DSC02545DSC02546DSC02547DSC02548

It was hard to keep this secret from Bev, but it seems like everyone did – she was incredibly surprised when she walked in!!

I was very hungry and the appetizers were delicious.  I was especially excited to see the Pizza Rolls being served, as this has been one of my very strange cravings lately – along with Bagel Bites.

My small plate was heaping –>DSC02578

Of course I could not pass up a cupcake for dessert.  Ben and I picked these up from Sweetheart Cupcakes and they tasted heavenly.  I could not finish.DSC02577

Such a fun, exciting evening that I am certain Bev will never forget!!

A few Baby Progress Pictures on Turbo Teacher today, but for more of my Baby Journey, remember to check out Cincinnati Parent Magazine, where my most recent post is all about sharing the very special news with my Hubby, Ben.

Enjoy your Sunday!! We are spending ours with family! Later, we are planning a grill out on the deck with Lilly.  And guess what??  I actually think a cheeseburger sounds amazing – this is a first (!!!)
