Weekend Recap #11

Mental Status: "Tired but pleased". Had a "party train" weekend this past weekend. A lot of entertaining went on, so I'm tired. Everything went without a hitch, though. Yay!

You might be wondering what exactly a "party train" weekend is. It's actually a new name my hubby dubbed our "Cousin's Weekend" adventure in order to breathe new life into it. And "What is Cousin's Weekend?" you might ask. My, you're curious.

Well, basically, Cousin's Weekend is a weekend with my hubby's cousins. One family of cousins are in NY, another in North Carolina and the hubby's aunt in in NY, too. They all came down/up and stayed with us for a whole festive family weekend of par-taying and getting acquainted with one another again.

We hosted a BBQ Friday night at our house, which kicked off the festivities. (Plenty of wine and food flowing, I assure you--and a great Raspberry Lemon Trifle I made) Then the next morning we all went to my brother and sister-in-law's for brunch and more partying.

Everyone walked to beach from there and we spent a good part of the afternoon. Afterwards, (when we all showered and changed) everyone came back to our house for pizza, then we all took the kids to the boardwalk for rides and more exhausting fun.

Oh, but the fun didn't stop there. Sunday morning was breakfast at my mother and father-in-laws to say good-byes before everyone had to get on the road to travel.


Needless to say, it really was a party train weekend and I'm tired. But it was a lot of fun, too. My daughter loved playing with my hubby's cousin's daughter. (Does anybody know what the realtion is? Second cousin? I give up.) Before she went to bed Friday night she told me, "Mommy, I had TOO much fun with that little girl." (As you can see, my daughter's not big on names)

Anyhew, I'm going to try to fill up on coffee this morning and try to get my house back in order.

How was your weekend?

I'm so glad this worked out for you - sounds like great time and a good idea to keep in touch with those far away. :)

Girl, you are the most social woman I know! Where do you get the energy. We don't entertain much because I can't stand doing all that extra work ...

Sounds like you had a ball. BTW, I'm reading "Georgie" tonight while I wait for my grandson at Tae Kwon Do class. Will post my comments tomorrow.

Sounds like a fun weekend. I just finished reading Full House by Janet Evanovich. The hero pawn's his wacky cousins off on the heroine as they proceed to fall in love. Deedee, the one cousin, is engaged to be married to one of those pro wrestlers with the big personalities. It's funny. Ever read it?

wow, that was some weekend! but no matter where you are in the world, there is ALWAYS too much food at family gatherings.
I actually went out clubbing this weekend...can you believe it?! But I know when old age is catching up because we left early - at about 2:30am...and hit the bed and 3:45am and was absolutely knackered at work yesterday.
