1. Saturday we got all gussied up for the 50th birthday party for one of my best friends. The invite requested all guests wear their finest 1960's party attire — so Mary and I took the opportunity to put a Mad Men spin on our outfits:
We had a blast to say the least and will share more pics from this fun night in a post this week.
2. It wouldn't be a 17 Apart weekend if I weren't messing around in the kitchen for a good part of it.
Look out for my take on broccoli cheddar soup, stuffed peppers (from our front pepper planters) and even daikon radish chips coming up on E.A.T. this week.
3. We've been working on a DIY project we're both pretty excited about sharing the details of — it involved whipping out the power tools and a little creativity.
4. In other (not so surprising) news, we fell prey to the marketing of a new "indestructible" looking dog toy:
This one was made completely of rubber, like his Kong, so we thought there was no way he'd rip it apart. Much to our disappointment (and defeated laughter), he broke into the rubber and started chewing little pieces off within 10 minutes flat:
Another toy down the drain for us — will we ever learn!?
All in all, it was another great weekend where we got a lot accomplished and had a ton of fun doing it. What have you all been up to?
