Why do the weekends go by so fast? After staying up late Friday night I slept in on Saturday. . .ahhh, my favorite thing! I spent the rest of the afternoon cleaning and cooking for my "Girls night in" get together with some girlfriends from church. I guess you could also call it "Pie Fest" because I made individual chicken pot pies, mini pecan pies and pumpkin pie. . .YUM-O! It was all good but my pecan pies turned out AWESOME, this my be my new signature dessert! The girls raved about them. I should have thought to take a picture of my potpies, too. They looked pretty great also! I bought some extra large ramekins at Pier One on sale and used those. I will try to post the recipe (with my adjustments, ha!) tomorrow, because it turned out awesome and it was not hard at all! The girls wanted it since they all thought it was so good.
We watched "Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day" and "Baby Mama", both were really good! The last of my guests left around 11:30, so it was another late night! Sunday I got up and went to Hickory Ridge for Church and lunch. Then I took a much needed nap and went to see my Nanny and Papa. BTW if you are thinking about getting a puppy or know someone who is, it looks like my Papa's Jack Russell is pregnant again! After church I headed back home and I was in bed by 9pm! It was still hard getting out of bed this morning! I was just not ready for it to be Monday already! I don't have any major plans for this week. . . I think I may start getting my fall stuff out, since today is the first day of fall! Yay!! I can't wait for the leaves to start turning and for the temperature to drop! Time for mums and pumpkins, my favorite time of year!!!
Jarrod told me last night that unless something major happens he should be home Friday! I am not getting my hopes up. . . well, I am trying not to get my hopes up. I know how easily the "plan" can change. So please pray that this week goes as planned and they can come home SOON!
