Killer Weekend

Whew! Another great weekend has come and gone. It makes me anxious for the next weekend!

On Friday, I was reading through blogs and I came across Megan's decorated pumpkins. It inspired me to get some and decorate a little more...

Mini Pumpkins

I got the urge to paint some pumpkins. (I also got these 3 pumpkins for $3)
My leopard and dachshund pumpkins
On Saturday, I co-hosted a baby shower for my cousin
The Mommy-to-Be
The super cute cake!!!

We also had Sophisticated Punch, Raspberry Baked Brie and Spinach and Artichoke Dip.


After the shower, Fred and I had date night downtown. A few weeks ago, I was reading through Sarah's blog and I saw where they loved Wang's China Bistro. We'd never eaten there, but we had a coupon. So, we decided to step out of the box and try it...

The weather was perfect and we got to eat outside.

After dinner, we headed to our new fave frozen yogurt place, YoLo! (if you go, you must try the Blondies made by Monkey Bread Bakery)

On Sunday, we spent the day running errands in and out of the rain. We also managed to relax on the couch and watch this:

And dined on Zesty Spaghetti. Loved the movie and loved the meal! Click here for the recipe.

Hope you all enjoyed your weekend!!
