Food & Fun!

Here we are - at the end of another perfectly good weekend about to be ruined with routine once again. :)

This weekend was very fun. Friday night, Tim had some friends over for Guitar Hero. I bounced back and forth between scrapping & watching the boys. Nice, relaxing evening.

Saturday morning Amanda came over & we ran some "Christmas errands" while the boys (her husband & mine) worked on the electrical outlets outside...in the rain...fun.

We brought them back Starbucks & had some lunch. Ben & Amanda left a little while after that & Tim I took a nappy-pooh. I love naps. It was the only one I got this weekend - so I'm glad it was a good one. :) After naps, I finished cleaning the house & then Ben & Amanda were back to pick us up to go to dinner at Claim Jumper in Portland.

Oh my goodness...it was delish. The portion sizes were HUGE-mongous. I ordered a half salad & was only able to eat half of that...a quarter of a salad. Crazy. We were told to have dessert (thanks for the tip Erin) so we took it to go. Fascinatingly enough the picture below is NOT my chocolate cake. I opted for Pumpkin Cheesecake (which I ate some of yesterday, some today & there is STILL some left). Ben got 'a piece' of chocolate cake & here is what he received. Insane. We had a really great time at the restaurant, I would recommend it (& also that you split a meal with 3 people). :) After dinner we came back to our house for more Guitar Hero & mongo desserts...

Amanda & I realized that we don't have any pictures together, so we took some steps to begin to remedy that. Here we are after dinner last night - back at our house ready for desserts & Guitar Hero.

Today I hosted our knitting bee. Nicole, Honey & I started this in September & today my good friends Amy & Victoria joined us. We had a great time knitting, snacking, & chatting. I actually made progress on my sweater! Hooray!

Tonight has been filled with AWANA & catching up on Grey's. Now I'm off to finish getting ready for the week...lots of activities this week - I may or may not be a good blogger, I guess you'll have to check back & find out for yourselves...

:( I think I'm very jealous of your weekend ... and would have switched all but today of mine with you ;).

Scrapbooking, Starbucks, naps, dessert and knitting ... does it get any better than that? I think those should now be the five ingredients to the perfect weekend ... I will now go forth and try to achieve perfection. And we all know how well I exceed at that :).

Well I'm off to bed where I am going to be treated to sleeping in tomorrow, so that is almost as good as a nice long nap!

Happy short week with little to no kids!!

That is such a good picture of you two! That is such a good picture of chocolate cake!! Though, I am a pumpkin fanatic, so I'm betting that cheesecake was awesome (I'm eating pumpkin bread as I type) :)
