C's friends left this morning. Did I mention that the last time all five of them were together was more than a decade ago? I am so happy to have been a part of such a memorable weekend not just for C but for those four guys too.

Yesterday involved a lot of hanging around and being lazy on the couches. Eventually, the six of us plus C's brother went and had dinner before heading out. C and I had tickets to Coldplay that we certainly didn't want to skip, but we didn't want to leave the clan either. We all took our time at dinner and he and I got to the concert just before Coldplay went on stage.

Wow. What a show. We stayed for most of it and were amazed. Chris Martin wasn't at all how I expected him to be - much more playful and excited. The lights and special effects were so cool. You could tell a LOT of thought went into that show. We left just after the cell phone wave and "I'm a Believer," which was near the end of the concert anyway.

We found the boys and headed off to do some much-anticipated karaoke! I may have mentioned before that C is a great singer, but this weekend I found out his friends are, too. We heard "1979," "Moving Out" and "Wanted Dead of Alive," none of which topped a group performance of "Sweet Caroline." Of course I held my own with "Something More" and "Don't Stop Believing." It was a fun, fun night.

"Bah, BAH, BAH!"

When I started planning this weekend back in January, I wasn't sure how it would go. But it surpassed every expectation I had, and I know it surpassed C's expectation since he didn't have anything to expect. I know he felt so special, and more than having fun or hosting a great party, that is what I was aiming for.

But enough about his birthday! Do you know what's in two weeks exactly? My birthday? Vegas? All of the above? Yes yes yes. Hope you all had a good weekend.
