Tired and thankful

After a really great weekend, I often find myself tired.... wishing I had a couple more hours to sleep or relax a bit but thankful... for all the fun we had.... all the friends, the family and the food -boy was there eating this weekend- serious, serious eating.... and almost none of it I cooked myself. 

Here are some little snippets from our weekend!

Our weekend started on Thursday with a charity event we went to with our new friends Alex and Jenn. Jenn and I met over the summer (our kids are in the same school) and really clicked. She asked me to join her on the event committee for Food for Thought. It was a really fun night with a cool silent (and live auction). I'd never been to a live auction before and it was quite interesting to say the least! PS. I won nothing... those bids creep up really high and we all know I'm a cheapo  love a great deal.

Overexposure on the iPhone :-)

Our kids were off school on Friday so Jenn and I took them to McD for a Happy Meal and play time. Jenn bought me the new Chestnut Praline from Starbucks--- even in its half sweet, non fat, touch of whip state, I loved it! 

Happy Meal=Happy Kids

D & C woke me up bright and early on Saturday morning to head to Cora's for breakfast. A was not pleased-- we have realised that she is just not a morning person! 

Mexican and ice cream for dinner.... followed by a night of throwing up for C.... and a night of changing bed sheets and night clothes for D and me! Yeah, not such a fun part of the weekend.

We met D's cousin and his family for a very nice brunch at Cambridge Mills on Sunday... when I say nice I'm talking champagne, oysters, king crab kind of nice... 

These three boys really ate their money's worth!

C on the other hand certainly did not... so much so, they didn't even charge for her... Poor thing, the Mill is one of her favourite places and we rarely ever go... that should tell you how sick she was.

And then we headed over to Brampton to my sweet friend Andrea's house for more food(home-made by her sister Jo aka Best Cook Ever), cake and fudge.... I baked a pumpkin spice cake to take and the kids really loved it! 

Great friends give you lots of leftovers-- these girls are the best!

I woke up this morning with a sore throat, stuffy nose but happy heart! Happy Monday, everyone!!
