Oh, this weekend. It was busy, it was fun, I saw my favourite people in this world and it left my heart feeling very, very full. These are the kinds of weekends I live for.
Friday night we Skyped with my bruddas and sista. IT WAS SO MUCH FUN. I seriously love my siblings. They are just, they are my people. And Skype is a Godsend. It makes thousands of miles feel like nothing at all. Isn’t it so cool to stop and think about how we can even do that?! Technology, man. I really stopped and was in awe of this whilst explaining it to my 80 year old grandpa. It is amazing how far we’ve come.
Speaking of how far we’ve come, my brother graduated with his Master’s in Biology on Saturday!! I’m such a proud sister. He’s amazing and so smart, and now he told us we have to call him “Master Haakenson.” So. That happened.
After Skyping, my favesies came over and we ate cupcakes and had some girl talk. We dubbed this our “pre-cinco de mayo fiesta” which counts since we did have margaritas, right? Isn’t Steph’s little dog just so cute?! Our cats weren’t too sure.
Saturday was the Kentucky Derby party. We enjoyed some Mint Juleps and family time and also celebrated my grandpa’s 82nd birthday! My mom was born on his birthday, and the Derby is always around the same time, so it’s become a tradition to have this party. This was the first Derby/birthday party that she wasn’t here for. It was really hard, but my aunt and I just kept reminding each other to not think about it. It helped. We know that Mom would have wanted us to have a blast, for her. So we did. Plus, that family of mine is just the best. So that also helps.
How was your weekend? Did you eat a cupcake? If not, why not? ;)
Any fun Cinco/Derby parties?
Any other Masters out there? If so, what is it in?
