Weekend in Review
Nobi bahn mi sandwiches for lunch and stocking up on more weird beers for S before we headed home. After we ate lunch and gave the pup some snuggles, we got to work on our to-do lists. I had a huge stack of onesies that were decorated a few weeks ago at B and J's baby shower that I needed to wash and dry, so I got that done. I don't think I really reported back on the baby shower yet - it turned out so great! A bunch of friends helped with food and decorations which both turned out phenomenal (we had guac, tamales, queso, rice, stuffed jalapenos, and salsas for food plus key lime pie and chocolate cupcakes topped with a bacon cream cheese frosting*. The latter were AMAZING). B and J got a ton of great gifts that will definitely help with the two little bundles of joy that they're expecting, and we also had a onesie decorating station so everyone could put their own artistic touch on some clothes for the twins. People were SO creative! Look at this:
On Sunday the weather was GORGEOUS - 70 degrees, not a cloud in the sky, light breeze - officially spring weather. S spent a good chunk of the day outside doing yard and garage work with Pandora hooked up to a line so she could happily explore the front yard - she definitely loves spending time outside. I got some fresh air when I took the pup for a long walk, but I was mostly cooped up inside working on my taxes for a majority of the day - boo. Whatever, they're done and I'm broke. I am pretty psyched that I got so much accomplished this weekend though. Our next big adventure? Pandora's first training class tomorrow night...
*For the bacon cream cheese frosting, I omitted the bourbon in the recipe and used 1 Tb of vanilla extract instead. I also candied my bacon before incorporating it in the frosting. Just preheat oven to 350 degrees then place 8 strips of bacon on to a foil lined baking sheet. Sprinkle brown sugar over the bacon until the it is covered with a consistent layer and pat down. Bake in the oven for about 25-30 minutes or until the bacon is cooked and crispy.
