Weekending - March 18, 2016

Welcome Spring!  Well, we did have a bit of snow this weekend, but the calendar does say spring.  I'm sure the warm weather will be catching up to the calendar very soon.  I'm just here trying to be patient!

This weekend went by in a flash.  Friday night we had girls night at 3rd Degree Glass Factory.  On the third Friday of each month they host 3rd Friday.  This is the first time I'd attending.  Where have I been?!?  It was so much fun!  There was a band, glass blowing demonstrations, and fire throwers all thrown in to one great night.

We started the evening with a little food truck action.  Completely Sauced stopped by and their entrees were amazing!  I would chase this truck down the street to get some of their cuisine.  I had the blackened salmon and everyone else had the crab cakes.  Delish!

My friend Sherri had given us gift cards so we could participate in a glass experience of our own.  We decided to make some beads.

The finished projects will be ready for pick up in a week.  Can't wait to get a good look at them when we get them back.  I think I'm hooked and want to go back and do it again.

Saturday Kayla and I got together to make the invitations to Ian's graduation party.  She is going to have a family gathering to celebrate Ian getting his JD and I was so happy she asked for my help with the invitations.  I didn't really help that much -- but I was there for moral support.  I was finishing up dinner while she did most of the work.  Love the way they turned out!  We addressed the envelopes using my Silhouette.  Picture to come later.

I made a raspberry cake with lemon frosting for dessert that tasted pretty darn fabulous.  I'll be sharing the recipe on Tuesday.  It would be the perfect dessert for Easter.

Eric and I decided to grab a movie on Sunday afternoon.  We picked Whiskey Tango Foxtrot.  I have the hardest time taking comedians like Tina Fey serious in movies.  Rotten tomatoes rated this film 6.2/10 and I would have to agree.  I didn't hate it, but I didn't super love it either.  Definitely one I could have waited to see after it comes out on video.  Eric and I both picked up a goof in the movie.  Have you seen it?  Did you hear the goof also?

And that brings us to Monday.  This is a short work week for me because we have Good Friday off.  I'm looking forward to a three day weekend!  Now I just need to make it through the next few days...

  1. I must look into that glass factory more, I've always heard it was a fun time!

  2. That glass factory sounds like so much fun. I think I'd be a little scared of the flame though! That cake looks amazing. Can't wait for the recipe.

  3. Okay NOW I'm hungry! Sounds like you had a fun time!

  4. That glass factory seems so fun! You'll have to share what your project looks like finished!

  5. I just saw the Whiskey Tango Foxtrot book and was considering it...kind of glad I didn't buy it after your review! Tina Fey is such a good comedian, I'd have a hard time seeing her play a serious role too.

  6. Yum that cake! Looks like a great time. Thanks for sharing on #overthemoon
