Fun-Filled Weekend


This weekend we are having some out-of-town friends stay with us! I'm excited to have an entire weekend of entertaining to do (note to self: vacuum when you get home...).

Tonight we're going easy & ordering pizzas, tomorrow is the "big" day.

We're starting the morning out right by making baked doughnuts from

Then we're spending the day at Brookfield Zoo! I can't wait to see all the animals, I feel like I may be more excited than the children  :)

For dinner we have a simple grill out planned of brats, dogs, corn, watermelon & pasta salad. Nothing like drinking in that last bit of summer!! Easy meals are the best for a crowd :)

For dessert, (I know I'll be spoiling the girls with this one, but I simply cannot help myself) I'll be making Chocolate Thin Mint Ice Cream from Life {Made} Simple.

I can't wait to spend the weekend with our friends, and spoil those little girls!!!

Let's all hope Princess doesn't traumatize the girls by licking them like crazy. When she sees children, she typically can't help herself no matter how many hours of training she's had...she just NEEDS to lick them. What a Princess she is. At least she has a sporty new (and very fitting) collar to show off.

Wishing everyone a fun-filled weekend!! Stay cool :)
