It's been a fairly busy weekend so far. Friday night, Julie and Ken invited us over for a BBQ, which was really fun. We had shrimp, corn on the cob, pork fillets, salad, rice, and a dessert tat Julie kept a big secret until right before we ate it. It turned out to be a Toblerone/Reese's pieces cheesecake. It was so incredibly good that Patrick ate nearly 1/4 of the cake. Sugar high! I also managed to drink several glasses of wine without getting drunk off my ass, which sadly is what normally happens to me. Julie and Pat were very surprised, yet pleased. I think it was the lower percentage of alcohol, combined with the fact that she served the wine in glasses without stems, which somehow fooled me into thinking there was less. See??

We also rocked out to Jon's hit, which required ridiculous arm flailing, captured here (she will probably kill me for posting this)...

Yesterday my mom decided that she wanted to have a brunch at our place. Little did we know that it was going to be so formal - she invited my grandma and uncle over and had the table all done up. She made a really good quiche, blueberry pancakes, bacon and eggs, and fruit with a lemony dessert sauce to put on top. We were all very stuffed afterwards, but it was so good. Here are some pictures.



Afterwards, we ventured to Alex and Ryan's engagement party. Thankfully there was no rain, so they were able to have it in Alex's parents' backyard, which looks like it should be on HGTV it's so nice! There was so much food there, and really good food at that! We had a good time, good company, and her dad made the cutest little speech. Here's a picture of the bride and groom to be, don't they look nice?

Today is pretty low-key. I did a butt/back workout this morning and was DYING because it's been so long since I did that P90X dvd. But it was well needed after all the food I've eaten this weekend. Now I've got the house to myself so I can do some scrapping and listen to music at full blast. I also took a bit of sun. Later I'm going to Patrick's house for a BBQ. Hope you're also enjoying your weekend!

Looks like a fun barbeque!

Packing , not good! I got involved in Melrose Place DVDs, and they take over my life! I have so much to do. And my computer is acting up, I would like to throw it out the window! AND I have not scrapbooked in months, no time for anything!
