Weekend Wrap With Even a NIGHT off!!! (Hold on Betsy)

We had a fab weekend, the only thing I wished is that it was a 3 day weekend so I could have at least one day to just chill … but as we all know it I would just fill it up … lol.
Saturday after I got done with work I ran up to my friend wedding reception location and helped her do the prep work, we were the two lone soldiers and got it all done!
Then I ran home changed and picked up the boys.  GET this Rick even took the day off and came with me!!

Then we dropped the boys off at home and we got a NIGHT OFF!!  We rented a room at Plum Duff B&B.  We’ve stayed at one on our wedding night & the one year anniversary so this was a real treat.  The place was very nice, the room was a little on the nautical feel and the bed was too small for poor Rick.  His feet hung off the bed … lol.  Then sadly I was disappointed with the breakfast.  Now I’m a little food snob you know, so when I go and pay $150 for a night I really expect bells and whistles.  The breakfast was just ok, the breakfast was the a egg, sausage with frozen potatoes.  It’s something I’ve put together in a pinch for the boys, so that was a little let down.  Rick told me I was being silly … lol.

Back in the day Mama Stortini’s was our favorite restaurant before kids, the owner Joe sold it and sadly the people that took it over didn’t do it justice.  He did start another restaurant Joeseppi's so we went to dinner there.  Rick had a wonderful Chicken Parm and yep you guessed it my brown butter & parm was just ok Sad smile.  The noodles were a little over cooked and mushy.  The breadsticks were good at least!  We then head to the movies!! Ok get this, I haven’t been to the movies in 4 YEARS!  I was so excited I got to eat popcorn … YUMMY!  We watched Contagion with Matt Damon, it was actually very good and worth the $25 … hehe yes I’m cheap why we don’t ever go.

Sunday we went to church, our little neighbor boy asked to go along with us and the boys were so excited!  After church they had a BBQ and talent show.  The boys enjoyed all the food and then the fun of the talent show!

The talent show was so much fun! Pastor Dan even got out his sword out and sliced a zucchini and then a watermelon on top of one of the band members.  It was so much fun!

Then we headed to my Tuesday friends house for some water balloon’s, hanging out in the fort and even the tree’s.  A super fun time all around!

And I can’t leave you with a recipe.  I made these supper yummy Black & White Brownie Cupcakes.  With a Coffee frosting on top.  It’s was a hit at the wedding reception we went to.

Happy Wednesday, hope you’re all having a great week!  Anything fun happen so far with your week?


  1. Wow how fun.. I want to stay at a bed and breakfast when my little man gets a little bit bigger. How fun..

    This week my little girl had a flood in the bathroom, my little boy turned 2 months old, Dogs got their nails trimmed up.. Husband will be home for a few days.. Have a great day..

  2. As usual you just don't stop! I hope you and Rick really enjoyed your time together and I am glad to hear the boys had fun.

  3. For $150 I would expect a better breakfast too. At least a homebaked muffin.

  4. Sounds like you had a fun time! Love all the pictures!

  5. Those cupcakes look yummy. I don't go to the movies often either, because of the price. I'd like to see Contagion when it comes out on DVD.


Commments welcome, helps me know the people in the wall really do exsist!
