{Family}Whirlwind Birthday Weekend

I'll be wrapping up this week with another birthday post...might as well call it Birthday Week here on the blog! (Tomorrow is Friday Favorites and the last day to enter my giveaway!!)
When College Girl came home for winter break, it was a whirlwind weekend.

The girls also went to NYC for the day to do some fabric shopping.
We checked out a new vegan restaurant for her birthday dinner.  I love that the water glasses are Mason jars!
 The food was so good!
Here's what I had.
{Hoppin' John Black Eyed Peas with Charred Avocado and Green Onions}
{Traditional Pepper Pot,Rice & Peanuts, Coconut Curry (left)}
{Butternut Squash Soup, Root Vegetable Hash, Pumpkin Oil (right)
This was so cool, they served the soup with just the veggies in the bowl and then poured the soup into the bowl at the table!}
 We shared two of the desserts.
{Vegan Beignets..what?? & Chocolate Espresso Ganache}
{I think the other dessert was the Coconut Vanilla Sorbet}
 It was all amazing and such a cute, little place.
The rest of the weekend flashed by with her party and the opening of her time capsule.  Before we knew it, she was on her way back to college early to avoid another snow storm that was heading our way.  Come on, Spring Break!!

Let's keep in touch!

I would like to try the Hoppin' John Black Eyed Peas with Charred Avocado and Green Onions sound so good I am already hungry...this has made it worst. I am going to go and get something to eat haven't ate today went and had my taxes done took almost 3 hrs. Should have ate before I went, who would have thought it would be so long.

What an awesome weekend. I bet high school girl LOVED having her home. I love the picture of the two of them laughing :) my girls are at an awkward age right now, with Abs just turning 13. She doesn't always want to play, but when she does, it just makes the little ones day :) I can remember going through that with my sister.
