I (Mary) flew to Bham for a short trip this weekend to see Liz for her 17th birthday and hang out with the fam, and it was great fun. Liz requested a birthday 'dinner' of meatballs and fried potatoes, and had a few of her close girl friends over for a slumber party. They are a riot and it was fun to be around them, as always. LP made crepes for breakfast, and they were so delicious I stole the recipe! I was also lucky enough to get to have my favorite meal (brunch) at my favorite place (rojo) with some of my favorite people (see pic), so that was quite a treat too! It was a fun trip, but a short one and I hope to do it again soon, next time with Shannon & Ro in tow.
