Weekend fun...

Any weekend that includes this, is obviously not a healthy eating weekend.

Joe was away with the boys in Rocky Point, Mexico, so on Saturday night I had a few friends over and we had a really nice evening. We made individual deep-dish pizzas (also not on the healthy eating plan) and had a nice bottle of wine. We topped off dinner with this wonderful chocolate chip cookie with vanilla ice cream and chocolate chips. It was SOOOO good and SOOOO bad at the same time!

Today, my friend Christine helped me finish up my project to dress up the front entry way to our house. We have a HUGE entry way and it's been pretty plain and boring for years. This year, I decided I would do some spring planting and liven the place up a bit. Christine loves to garden and decorate the outdoors, so I recruited her help. My first purchase was a wrought iron bench and some pots. Today, we went out for all the flowers and greenery and spent some time planting and arranging things.

Here's how it turned out...

Nice job...I so wish I could keep a plant alive. The only thing that has survived with me is my jade plant.

Dessert...yum. Sometimes it is good to be bad.

The plants and bench really look good. Now you just have to remember to water the plants regularly. :) That is the problem I have with my plants in pots on the back patio, especially during the summer.
