this is how to start the weekend.

Family time on the porch.

Did I tell you guys we finally got some furniture for the porch? We love it! It’s nice having more than 2 chairs out there, and even though we love our rocking chairs, it was kind of hard to eat while moving the whole time.

We picked up this set from Bed, Bath, and Beyond a few weeks ago on sale AND used a 20% coupon – score!

Maybe, just maybe, if you’re nice enough to my new friend Carrie at Fields of Cake…she might be willing to send everyone some of this insanely delicious chocolate and peanut butter COOKIE DOUGH filled fudge.

Yup. You read that right. Cookie dough. In the middle of peanut butter chocolate fudge.

This stuff makes my heart beat faster after just one bite.

I’m so happy for a long weekend. My parents are coming up tonight, Nick’s are coming for dinner tomorrow, and we’ll be celebrating 7 years of marriage on Sunday! I can’t believe that.

What are you up to this weekend?

    That porch looks so welcoming. You really got a bargain with the furniture. T20% is not small change. I hope you have a great holiday. Blessings…Mary

      definitely – the 20% was a huge plus!
