Hello Saturday, you sure got here quickly!
Wow this week has flown by for me. Most likely because this is an extremely crazy/busy weekend for me. If you Follow me on Twitter then you already know my kitchen is being ripped apart floor wise and I have no oven access until like Wednesday…..can you hear me screaming?! LOL
I was in the kitchen for what seemed like an eternity yesterday cooking away for all of our events this weekend and meals for Monday and Tuesday. Today we had an engagement luncheon at my brother in law’s and soon to be sister in law’s house. It was really nice. Just her parents, the wedding party-their dates/wives/husbands, and my mother in law, me, and Zachary. It was quite a spread of goodies! I brought my GGH Chinese Chicken Fingers and the Famous Four Layer Delight-SOOOO YUMMMYYYYY. I wanted to eat the whole pan and though it was made with fat free sugar free everything that wasn’t my ticket to a one contestant dessert eating contest. Anyway….I think it went well and a nice chance for everyone to meet and chat.
Tomorrow…….we are going to the Patriots game. That’s right friends, little Miss I Hate The Pats is going to the game and sitting on the 50 yard line to boot. Now don’t get me wrong I ADORE football and I’m excited to see my first real live NFL game but we are playing the Miami Dolphins…..not exciting at all, at least to me. I will be taking pics and uploading them to Facebook and Twit pic-ing through out the day so tune in for a laugh. We are leaving our house at 8AM to drive up to Gillette, which is about 40 minutes away, to tailgate and then the game is at 1PM. OH BOY that should be fun for the only Mommy in the group LOL, there’s no way I can drink that early in the morning I lost that ability when I became pregnant and couldn’t drink for 9 months….so I will be the babysitter/designated driver…good times ;). So I have to do a lot of prepping for tomorrow and make sure my Zachary is all set up and ready to go for Nana to sit for him ALL DAY. I know she’s excited, but I’m gonna miss my little guy sooooo much :(.
To close up shop for the night, because I’m exhausted but I wanted to check in, I’m going to post all of the reminders for GGH Events and the AWESOME Pro Bar giveaway we have going on. Also, it has yet again been requested that I post the Pumpkin Muffin recipe so consider that Turkey Talk for the night. By the way, I made 42 of those pumpkin Muffins to take up to the tailgate party tomorrow-WOW!
