Weekend Recap: Surprise Parties & Yankees

As I mentioned, last weekend was Father's Day and my brother's birthday. We decided to have post celebrations the following weekend so each of them would have their own special day. On Saturday, the surprise party for my brother I had been planning finally happened and I think we surprised him! Mission accomplished. 15 or so of his friends met me and my parents in the East Village at Royale for some beer and burgers. Along with some Buttercup Bake Shop cupcakes.

On Sunday, we took my Dad to a Yankees vs Mets game. When we booked the tickets it was supposed to be an afternoon game but they changed it to 8pm. I think it worked out better since it wasn't 90 degrees but rather pretty cool 70s. We went to Citi Field so unfortunately had to sit in a sea of obnoxious Mets fans. We were left field so we had a great view of Nick Swisher (bottom right). We left early since my parents had to drive all the way back to Jersey but wish I could have stayed  to see their faces as the Yankees won 6-5.

What did you do this weekend?

  1. How sweet of you to organize a party for your party and I'm glad it turned out well!
    Woohoo - I love the Subway series (I've lived by both stadiums in my life!) and I hear the food at Citi Field is pretty awesome now!

  2. The second surprise party on the link-up today! How funny! I was telling Leeann that I have always wanted a surprise party but I think I am too much of a control freak to handle not knowing! Sounds like you had a great time this weekend :) Thanks for linking up!

    1. I know! haha It's hard to surprise me for that same reason. I need to know NOTHING otherwise it will drive me nuts knowing a surprise is coming :p

  3. I was going to say the same thing as Sami...seems to be the weekend for surprise parties. I was thinking about throwing one for my husband's 35th birthday next month, but realized it would be too hard to hide it from him, so he and I planned a dinner party instead. Much less stressful I think!

    Thanks for sharing your weekend with us!

  4. Sounds like an incredible weekend. I vow that when I'm ever across the pond, I'll try to get baseball tickets (if it's the right time of year). And you have to watch a football match if you're ever in England.

  5. I love that your family gave your dad and brother each their own special day. Double the celebrations means double the fun! Your brother's happiness at the surprise is awesome! Love the photos, ya'll look like you're having a blast!

    Ughhhh the Yankees!! haha just kidding ;) I love baseball, but I am an Angels fan (I'm OBSESSED with C.J. Wilson!) and a Rangers fan (I know, I know - how can you be both right? But I'm a Texas girl and C.J. pitched for them until this season) so the Yankees are a bad word where I come from haha although I would definitely enjoy that view of Nick Swisher - even if he is the enemy! lol

    Stopping by from the link up :)
