Weekend Happenings and a Surprise

Happy Monday! We had a great weekend over here at the Montgomery house. Where to begin! Friday, Bobby had to have a minor surgery to get rid of a bone spur in his thumb that was causing him a lot of pain. We ended up at the surgery center the better part of the day which wasn’t too fun, but hopefully now Bobby won’t be in pain!

Friday night we hung out at the house, and early Saturday morning my parents came into town for Father’s Day. Our plan was to BBQ for lunch, so my dad and I went to the store to pick up some things. He also had me drive him around through his old neighborhood for the longest time, which was weird. We got back to the house, and…

Surprise! My birthday isn’t until July 13th, but this was the only weekend my parents and Bobby’s family could come into town, so they threw me a little 30th birthday party. I also had a sweet friend from college and her family come. We had a lot of fun! We had delicious BBQ, and of course, cake! My favorite New Orleans cake, doberge cake.

My friend brought her baby who is about 3 weeks younger than Emma Kate, and they had so much fun playing together!



It was so sweet of Bobby to organize the fun, it was a great afternoon. That night we went out to eat and watched my favorite movie, Weekend at Bernies! It never gets old, my friends.

Sunday morning we all hung out and relaxed before mom and dad had to hit the road back to Louisiana. Happy first Father’s Day to Bobby!

Good times were had, and sadly they had to leave all too soon. Sunday afternoon we had lunch with some friends from church, and then we just hung out around the house. I got a little work done, since 2016 Disney World packages come out today, I am going to be a busy bee (email me for a quote! heather@travelwiththemagic.com).

I hope everyone had a great weekend and got to celebrate with loved ones. Luckily I will get to see my parents again in two weeks. We always have a great time!

  8. Hi Heather! I stumbled across your blog a couple of years ago before I ran the Princess Half! I’ve loved following since! Thanks for being so honest and real – you are a runner I feel I can identify with! I’m writing bc I am traveling to New Orleans soon and would love some “must-do’s” from you (especially food!) I’ve used many of your Disney suggestions and they are always amazing! (I also LOVE birthday and wedding cake – where can I get a snowball (I believe that is a New Orleans treat?!)) Thanks in advance!

  9. Oh what fun! I love that he surprised you!!!!
