Do you know what my biggest accomplishment was this weekend? I'm totally caught up on Scandal. Sad, I know, that this was my biggest accomplishment. Hello, my name is Penny and I'm a binge watcher. Eric has been a real trooper during my last week-and-a-half of binge watching. He's brought me food and drinks, tissues when something sad happened in my life with Olivia Pope and helped me figure out exactly how to keep the episodes streaming. Yes - Best.Husband.Ever!
Surprisingly, I did do a few other things. Saturday was my friend Lauren's bridal shower. Her soon-to-be aunts hosted the event and you could see how excited they are to be welcoming her into their family. The shower was held at One 19 North Tapas and Wine Bar in Kirkwood. Adorable place. The food was wonderful and we had sangria. Great little desserts. Adorable nail polish favor. All this equals GREAT shower.

Saturday night I did manage to pull myself away from the television long enough to make dinner for Eric, Ian and Kayla and watch the St. Louis Blues Hockey game. Check out these shoes we gave Kayla for Christmas. How great are these?!? A friend of a friend paints on shoes and she came up with this design for my St. Louis Blues loving daughter-in-law. I'll have more information on them on my Five on Friday this week.
My crockpot saved me on Sunday. Our meal cooked all day while I was -- you know, watching Scandal. See what a fantastic multitasker I am! Check out this sandwich -- Pepperoncini Beef. Recipe coming on Tuesday. I know that's St. Patrick's Day and most people will be talking about green stuff and corned beef. Maybe that will be me next year, but this year I'll be sharing my Pepperoncini Pork recipe.
We decided to cap off the weekend and celebrate the warm weather with getting ice cream from one of our favorite ice cream stands -- Dairy Haven. It's one of those places that have plethora of wonderful novelties on their menu, but I get the same thing every single time we go there - a medium black raspberry shake. YUM! This establishment is closed during the winter, so the fact they are open is a sure sign that summer is coming.
