Chris took the whole week off and one of my best friends
(we met eachother on the first day of first grade...21 years ago!)
is in town from Germany.
Needless to say, I don't want to spend a lot of time blogging so I leave you with mostly pictures from our busy weekend...
cozy after a bath:
snow on the way to date night dinner:
Por Que No...again:
our Bryan's bowls and agua fresca:
dessert at the always amazing Pudding on the Rice:
they have crepes and rice bowls too, but I can never go without getting rice pudding!
by the time we got there they were sold out of the seasonal Pumpkin and Eggnog flavors
(which are complete bliss)
so we settled for our non-season fave Patience Grasshopper with a big twirl of tart frozen yogurt on top:
Lauren and I went to a diy craft fair and got lots of great ideas for Christmas gifts...
though I was loving the decor:
Chris made me an amazing peppermint mocha, complete with crushed candy canes on top:
family dinner out for my bro's b-day:
Monday, Chris and I got up and went on a walk in 32 degree freezingness.
It made for awesome pictures and it felt good to get out:
Bubs all bundled up:
while we were making dessert to take to my family's Thanksgiving on Sunday, Bennett entertained himself by reading books on the couch for almost an hour.
early family Thanksgiving at my sister's:
(I ended up making the pumpkin crunch cake and it was so easy and good!)
my lovely Stumptown mocha:
(seconds before B ruining the pretty design by putting his hand right into it, yes his hand was fine)
I most likely won't post anymore this week so have a good Thanksgiving!
(oh and I'm making the cheesecake today, so I'll let you all know how it turns out. Pray that it doesn't giant crack down the middle!)
