From the weekend :) I had an extremely busy weekend. My weekend started out bad, I met my mom for dinner and within minutes of getting home was sick. :( I have no idea if it was the food, or something else but it was not a good night. I woke up Saturday, unsure of how I was feeling. While I took a shower, I came out to find the little devil dogs had chewed my favorite pair of heels :( 
It's hard to stay mad at that face...
I spent most of the day shopping, trying to find those exact shoes, in my size which I did!!!!They were $25 at Target and totally worth it, but now I have to break in the new pair. I also scooped up a few shirts off the clearance rack, 3 shirts for $20, what a steal! They will all be for work I'm sure.
My friend came over with my godson and we split a bottle of arbor mist (sangria) and some garlic dip with pita bread. 

It was a funny afternoon where we tried to watch accidental husband. The movie was pretty crappy but the wine made it better, we had a hard time following the story though...

Mr. P came home early from work and we went to the movies and saw Dinner for Schmucks. It was funny and tons of chuckle moments, but not a great movie, in my opinion. I'm not sure why, but I expected something more memorable you know?
Sunday was shop til you drop day :) I bought a ton of Halloween decorations and crafts. This week I'm going to do a couple tutorials for a Fall Leaf Wreath, a Scary Halloween sign and Halloween subway art. I feel like I've been bitten by the craft bug! I made an attempt at spice cake mini-pumpkins but the cakes got stuck to the pan and didn't turn out. Instead I made cupcakes and dusted them with the orange sugar. We will do a second try next weekend.

Mr. P put together my kitchen last night! I'm so happy I have a functioning kitchen again. Then we watched Abandoned which was Brittany Murphy's last movie. Throughout the movie Mr. P kept saying how she looked like crap and now I think it's cuz she died during production so they had to use a computer program to edit last minute scenes or something. The movie wasn't great, it had Dean Cain in it who used to be Superman when it was on TV, if anyone ever used to watch it. 
Mimi Rogers was in it, but had a smallish side part. Overall I'd give it 3 out of 5 stars. Not great but not horrible.
Now to catch up on what everyone else did this weekend!!

I will be posting a super easy pork chop dinner tutorial later today. I made it for dinner last night while my kitchen was being put back together. I make it at least once a week. I need to upload the pictures and get it all set up.

Enjoy your Monday!!
