How is everyone's Wednesday going? This week has gone by rather fast! The weather has gotten a bit warmer but is supposed to cool back down. That could mean rain though. We will see!
As I have probably mentioned before, every time my mom comes for a visit she brings us LOTS of stuff. She cooks yummie stuff and brings it. She buys things at the store for us as well. She too, likes going to garage/estate sales. I just asked her about a bed tray she has. I really want it...or one like it. She said she was keeping it because it was old and antique but she was certain that she, I or one of her friends could find me one at an estate sale. My friends are often astonished at the boxes of things she sends via USPS or brings when she comes.
One of my mom's friends is moving out of town and she was downsizing all of her home items! Things are two things my mom picked up for me!
How cute is this Boston coffee mug? We honestly don't have many boston "things" around the house but I think this is cute. My parents probably love our dog (next to us) more than anyone. Elton has been wandering around looking for them since they left!
She also got my this punch bowl! I do not have a punch bowl...except for the Halloween one! So, now I have one and I'm certain I'll make a yummie punch soon so that I can use it :)
She brought us lots more books and stuff stuff. Thank you, mom!
On Monday night, while the parents were helping my brother move, these little sweets and their parents came over. My parents thought they would be finished in time to see them, but they weren't. They were sad to have missed them. My mom cooked a ham and I made a few other things for dinner while hubby cooked some steaks on the grill. (yes, they are making creations with grapes and toothpicks:)
Fresh mozzarella, basil and tomatoes with olive oil and balsamic
Red potatoes. I didn't really go by a recipe with these. We don't do potatoes much but we had company. This is when I first start making them..
I put olive oil, butter, parsley, garlic salt & pepper and browned them in the skillet for about 20 minutes or until soft. If the potatoes are big (which mine were), cut them into smaller pieces. (you like all that non-recipe lingo, don't you? HA!) They were a success! Everyone loved them :) Finished product .....
Morgan brought over this and I had not had it before! Well, I have now and I really like it! The bottle caught her eye so she got a few. It is called VOGA and made in Italy. Here is the site.
A cute pic of hubby and Elton I took this week :)
Have you all seen previews for this...
I like Jennifer in movies. I think she is so cute. However, I think it seems like a strange roll for Aaron Eckhart considering his last roll he played a "bad guy" (in Batman). I still will be seeing this :)
Tonight, hubby and I are going to a surprise birthday dinner for a friend. We actually have a surprise birthday party for another friend, tomorrow night. I don't think we can make that one. Yes though, that is THREE surprise parties within 6 days. CRAZY!
Hope you all had a great day!! :)
