Weekend Recap!

This weekend was a lot of fun!

 

Friday night we had a group over for dinner and I made these brownies for dessert.  I wasn't able to cut them in perfect squares, but they were perfectly gooey in the middle.  
Betty Crocker knows what she is doing!  


Saturday morning I embraced the Fall vibe that seems to be floating around the interwebs about this time each year and lighted one of my favorite candles to enjoy with my coffee.  I am serving the Chi Omega Alumnae chapter in my area as president this year, so I hopped right on the computer and accomplished some "to-dos" for our upcoming meeting.  Something about a yummy smelling candle and delicious coffee makes me more productive!



Then, we went over to our dear friends' house and celebrated a special 5 year old for his birthday!
His mom made this amazing plane cake!  I loved the fondant sky and clouds. 


The cake was so yummy, too!!  Perfect in every way!


After the party, G took me on a fun food truck lunch date!


We have wanted to visit this new group of food trucks near our downtown and decided that would be the first stop on our list of errands.


We tried the cheeseburger and sweet potato fries from Dave's Burger Barn, which the hubs touts as one of his all-time favorite burgers and he LOVES burgers, so I new it would be delicious.  
Such a fun treat!  Now, we can't wait to try the other food trucks!!


Next on our list was mission: organization. 
We stopped by Office Depot for some office organization items and also visited Hobby Lobby and HEB before heading home.  Then, we both got in the organization zone and got to work!  We have lived in our house for over a year and many of the walls were still bare, so we found some new homes for a lot of the decorative items we had put in a closet during the move and got rid of what we didn't need.  We also were able to utilize this great built-in bookshelf that is in our master bedroom for lots more storage.  We still have lots to do in our house, but it is amazing what a difference each little step makes!  One area we are unsure about is large wall spaces.  What are tips you have for decorating large areas in your home?

Yesterday, we had an all-church breakfast before the service and brought blueberry muffins.  I loved getting to use an adorable basket we had received for our wedding to carry them in. :)  It was so nice to visit with familiar faces and meet some new ones.

After a few meetings and some grocery shopping, we met G's parents for a yummy dinner.  I'm so thankful that they live nearby and we are able to see them often.

Hope you all had a great weekend!
