So this weekend I had the privilege of celebrating the 1st Birthdays of 2 adorable little boys, an old roommate's little boy and my boyfriend's nephew. 

There was lots of cake, lots of gifts, lots of fun and lots of cuteness.

One of the little boys is the son of a close friend from college so it was wonderful seeing college friends that are so dear to my heart :)

I'm excited for Thanksgiving. I'm excited to spend sometime with family and friends and enjoy a bit of R&R.

7 Quick Takes (vol. 12)

 ~~ 1 ~~
I made these last night. They are amazing, you should definitely try them (click on the title for the recipe :), especially if you like pecan pie and chocolate and the two together. I just had chopped pecans so I skipped the first step and it still turned out amazing.

Our little Hero Masquerade Halloween party went well, it was a small gathering but tons of food, awesome costumes and wonderful people.  The "hosts" are below (Rosie the Riveter and some heroic knight, can't remember at the moment who exactly my brother chose to be).

Happy All Souls Day and Happy late All Saints Day!

I have been doing a lot of cleaning/organizing lately. I can actually see my desk and sewing table again, it's amazing. Anyways, I've discovered that it is extremely easy to get side tracked especially when I run across awesome stuff like the poem below....

"Our Rodgers, Who art in Lambeau, Hallowed be thine arm. Thy bowl will come, It will be won. In Dallas as it is in Lambeau. And give us this Sunday, Our weekly win. And give us many touchdown passes. But do not let others pass against us. Lead us not into frustration, But deliver us to the valley of the sun. For thine is the MVP, the best of the NFC, and the glory of the Cheeseheads, now and forever. Go get'em. Amen." from here

I'm excited we're in the midst of the "Holiday Season". I am not ready for Christmas music, but I am excited for Thanksgiving, then Christmas and the New Years. Ready? No. Excited? Yes.

I have very few plans for this weekend. That's always exciting. I love the unknown possibilities. Sunday is set. Mass, teaching and then spend the rest of the day with the boyfriend, but Friday night and Saturday...oh the possibilities!

In honor of Halloween here's an oldie but a goodie :) Enjoy!
 Alright, that's all from me for this lovely Friday. Enjoy the weekend!
