The Apple Didn't Fall Far

We had dinner with friends last night at The Porch restaurant here in Dallas. Now I've had brunch and dinner there, and I can say with confidence... Well done, sirs. I used all of my tastebuds last night with your retardedly good homemade macaroni and cheese skillet. Exhibit A:

Yep, it's got ham in it. And aged cheddar. And that on the right would be my second glass of wine. Needless to say, I was giggly.

I also thought I'd share some photos from my Dad's surprise 50th birthday party. YES he was uber-surprised to see 18 people at his favorite restaurant instead of 2. I think I did a pretty good job on the decor. Casey and I made placecards for all the guests, assembled two big tropical flower vases for the table, and got 2 dozen black and silver balloons. (Just to twist the knife, I wrote '50' real big on the balloon bunch at Dad's end of the table).

Family portrait, minus Casey and my Mom.
I'm wearing my new colorful silk dress from Pitaya. Teresa, Dad, sister Victoria (she's 13), sister Alexandra (almost done with college!) and little brother James (he's 10). Doesn't my bra look weird? Victoria said I look like a New Jersey housewife. Funny 'cuz that's what I was going for...

Casey and little bro who looks like a cartoon character here.

Per the norm, I had a fun photoshoot after dinner with my siblings.
