A Blessed Weekend

This weekend was one of the best weekends we have had in a long time.  The sun was out, the weather was perfect, and the company was spectacular.

On Saturday we got to spend some time with our favorite nephews.  Eric came over and learned a little about the ways of yard work ("man's work" as Joe would call it :).  He was a great student and Joe even let him cut our prized front yard all by himself. :)

And when he was done with the yard work he got a little love from Willow.

I even got a few shots of Mr. Enzo that day since it was so nice outside and he had wondered onto the front porch.

We finished up Saturday evening with a visit with my favorite littlest nephew and he sure was in a silly mood. :)

Today I got to spend some time with one of the sweetest little families on the planet.  Sabrina has been an amazing friend of mine for 6+ years now and I have been blessed to see her family grow...twice!  I love her newest edition, sweet little man Ethan!  I got to go get my baby fix and my photography fix today!

It's Been a While

Wow - I didn't realize how long it has been since I have been on this blog!  I have a few reasons for getting beck into personal blogging, but my reasons aren't very important.  I'm here now and ready to share :).  So I will start by expaining that I have a new love in my life, well really I would even call it an obsession...Pinterest.  Yes, I have fallen head over heels in love with this bookmarking site and it has changed my life!  We have created many things for our home, and my cooking style has changed dramatically. 

Yesterday I tried out a new cupcake:  Oreo stuffed Oreo Cupcake with Oreo Creamcheese Frosting.  Sounds yummy right?!  They were decadent!  Even Joe liked them and he is not really a fan of anything chocolate. 

You can get the same recipie here at the Instructables website.

Please excuse the terrible photography since I took these pics with my phone.  I will get better, I promise!

Tonight Pinterest made another special apperance.  I have to give you a little story with this one.  All Joe ever does is complain about Pinterest because it gives me a millions ideas of things I want him to help me accomplish around the house.  He says, "I think your friend Pinterest adds 10 things to my honey-do list every day."  Well tonight he was singing the praises of my friend Pinterest when he and Brad got to have mini-cheeseburger french fries with their movie instead of popcorn.  These were so simple I can't believe I hadn't ever thought of making something like this.  They were super yummy too! 

You can get the recipie here at the Better Homes and Gardens website.
