Busy with some fun thrown in...
that pretty much describes this weekend and all weekends until October.
This time of year is craziness and it's not exactly easy to blog about it all with a busy toddler who won't stand still.
(who is going to be 2 in a few weeks!)

Anyways, back to this weekend...

For Lauren's birthday we went out for a double date night to Pok Pok, 
only we ended eating at a picnic table across the street. 
(read more about it over at Lauren's blog)

Did you know that I looove to wrap gifts and make cute little cards?
It's true.
Here's Lauren's:
and here is Chris and I after a great meal with great friends:
and here is us making funny faces with those friends:
(sorry Lauren I'm a picture stealer)
after dinner we ventured over to the foodcart pod on Belmont  to grab some 
celebratory desserts at The Sugar Cube:
Lauren and I both chose the same thing.
A warm brownie topped with peanut butter, vanilla bean ice cream, whipped cream and chocolate syrup!
It was pretty much amazing.
(a total splurge. then on Monday I worked it off during my 4 mile run. all is well.)
Sunday we went to Bennett's cousin's first birthday party.
It was in a giant backyard with lots of fun toys.
B especially loved the ride on tractor:
and the radio flyer horse:
I did all my grocery shopping on Friday which meant
I was finally able to try out this:
(yes that's dark chocolate and it's so good. I'm not a fan of cow's milk but I'll drink this stuff anyday.)
 It's great post-workout and I can't wait to try it steamed on a cold morning.
Oh and I also ordered a new waterbottle which arrived just in time for the weekend!
It's glass, has a wide mouth and there are no little parts which makes it super low maintenence and easy to clean. It also comes in a ton of cute colors. I decided to go bold with orange. Love it! 
Don't think we didn't get any work done on the house...
we finished painting the fireplace and hearth!
and we also have a white kitchen now:
Chris even painted the inside of the fireplace so it would be super low profile:

I hope you all had a good weekend!
I'm off to frost cupcakes for Lauren's baby gender reveal party tonight!

    2. Silk chocolate milk is delicious, I did not know dark chocolate existed and now I need to drink it.
    3. Your fireplace looks awesome.
