I know that Thursday doesn't really count as the weekend, but I'm counting it in for this post, otherwise you would only be seeing food pictures!

Thursday's weather was incredible so B and I met up with my friend 
Kaitlynn and her sweet boy Truman. 
We got up close and personal with mountain lions:
 and orangutans:
once we got home, Bennett decided to share one of his stickers with Scout:
 Saturday morning Chris got up early to go run with a friend and when he got home he made us our much loved and anticipated TJ's Pumpkin Pancakes!
 They are back but stock up because they will for sure sell out!
(the mix makes pancakes and waffles, but the pancakes are far superior and don't even need syrup!)
 we also shared a chocolate crossaint that Chris brought home after his run:
 it was a good breakfast.

I decided we needed to balance out our breakfast with some brussel sprouts with lunch.
I'm not a big veggie fan unless they are cooked into something so I wanted to give these guys a try.
I sauteed them in a little olive oil with salt and pepper.
They were pretty tasty!
 Saturday afternoon I helped Lauren navigate the ever daunting task of registering for baby gifts. It took us three hours and we were being efficient! 

Since Chris was playing at church Sunday, we decided to just have a low key night at home Saturday night and go to church as a family on Sunday (we usually go Saturday nights).

Last night, we rented a movie and I made stacked roasted veggie enchiladas for dinner and these amazing pumpkin chocolate chip bars for dessert:
 (straight out of the oven with a little vanilla Haagen Das of course)
Now the sun is peeking through the clouds so we may take this opportunity to go play outside before it disappears!

    Hi Becca! Love Bennett in his hat, so cute. I just found out, I think last year, that I love brussel sprouts! So excited they are back this season-they're so good for you too! Ooo, maybe they'll be my next Friday post... I LOVE fall. :)

    Pumpkin pancakes sound divine! Will definitely have to snag a box or two next time I'm at TJs. xoxo
