Welcome Back…..

It is back to reality…Mom is back in Oklahoma, Matt is out of town and my Birthday has come and gone! So back to the real world for me and today I am trying to catch up on everything that I put on the back burner for a week or so!

First of all….Thank you to everyone who wished me well, sent love my way or sent gifts. I am so lucky to have so many wonderful people in my life!

 It is always so nice when we actually have someone here to take a picture (or two) of us! Mom, Matt and I celebrated my Birthday the night before on Saturday. So we put on our best and headed out on the town!

 I picked out a very popular Italian place that is in one of my favorite parts of Columbus….Short North! You can check it out online by clicking HERE!

 Columbus is so pretty in Spring, Mom and I could NOT have asked for better weather. It was so nice spending 2 of the days outside shopping, eating and enjoying our patio!

Mom and I are really small in this picture but this is us outside of Marcella’s which is now on my list of favorite places in the city!

 I am not sure if you can tell but behind us is a glass wall and Saturday night it was so nice they are able to push the wall back and just have open air. It was so fun. Marcella’s does small plates, wine, pizza and the “Meatball”………

Look at that plate of spaghetti! This is what they are known for……it is one giant meatball that literally melted in my mouth! And this place is pretty reasonable as far as the price goes….but if you don’t have a reservation (we did) you would never get in!

My Birthday we went to see a movie and ate dinner at home! So my weekend was filled with a few of my favorite things……movies, shopping, good food and family!
Stop back by I have more to share with you from my Moms visit!
