Hello! How was everyone's weekend? On Saturday, we had our friends Sam and Ben over and we (Justin excluded, party pooper) carved pumpkins! It was a good time. Here's what we did:
My pirate ship
My pirate ship, lit up
After that, we (mostly Justin, what a hubby) made a delicious supper of shrimp and chicken alfredo - homemade! He makes a damn good alfredo, I must say. We also had garlic rolls, salad, and my apple pie dessert. Apparently, Bear felt left out of the whole deal and decided he deserves some dessert too. So today, he pulled the pie off of the counter and ate it all. There was about 1/2 of a 9-in pie left. Sound vaguely familiar? Yep, same situation happened about a month ago, just replace 'apple pie' with 'caramel rolls'. What a little fiend. But I guess I can't blame him. I'm mostly mad at myself for leaving it on the counter. Anyway, he's wired and flying around the house on a crazy sugar high.
On Sunday, Justin and I took Bear to doggie day camp and then ran some errands. We're looking for a carafe-less coffeepot, but they are elusive! We want the one like mom and dad's, but the deluxe version. I think we'll have to order it online. We went to one of our fave restaurants for lunch, Soho Cafe in Uptown. If you like Greek food, you must try it! Best gyro I've ever had.
We also raked and filled pumpkin bags on Saturday (plus 7 humongo garbage bags). Then Sunday is was about 30 degrees, 45 mph winds, and snow. So all our hard work raking was for nothing. Oh well, such is life in Minnesota.
So we had a good weekend and it was hard to go back to work today. But only a week and a half till Girls' Weekend!!! I am so excited. Can't wait, girlies!
