So as I'm getting up from the theater seat I notice that my pants are not jiving in the places they should. Now before I go any further I must have you know that my absolute favorite treat at the movies is popcorn and milk duds. I especially like the combo when the milk duds are slightly warm and soft. Back to the story. I reach down to regather my pants when I notice that I have a fat wad of melted caramel goo glueing my pj's together (yes I wore my pj's to the movies...is there any other way to enjoy an evening flick?) making my exit slightly uncomfortable but totally hysterical. I'd like to say that this is my first milk dud folley, but sadly I'm not a quick learner. Note to self....bring saran wrap for a lap tray at movies.
Last weekend I took the girls up to G's ranch for another try at canning. Unfortunately Matt couldn't be there to share in the fun, but we had a nice visit with friends and soaking up nature. The fresh ranch pears are amazing. Can't wait to break into a jar of them but trying to resist until the fresh ones are history.

Saturday was a treat in every way. Not only did we get to sleep in to our heart's content, we went out for one of the best breakfast feasts I've ever tasted (chilaquiles to die for and pancakes so big they didn't fit on the plate) before heading home to get ready for a night with Willie...Nelson that is. We went for a scrumptious pizza dinner at an authentic Italian pizzeria with my mum and dad in-law, fit in a walk on the beach and ended our evening watching Willie rock the stage. Old he may be, but played out he is not. It was a fantastic show to end our lovely day.

Yummy wedding cupcakes
The Jones' gettin wild
Me & my Mister
Last Friday we had the opportunity to celebrate love and marriage. The day started with a morning walk, then on to a little dress shopping, and a visit with grandma and in-laws before escaping with my husband to a wedding for the Jones's. The ceremony was very sweet and the party afterward had to have the best looking guest list around as it was packed with firemen and their wives. It was a fun evening that allowed Matt and I to get a night away from the kids and time to enjoy one another's company. I love little gettaways like this...they are so refreshing!
