Fall Weekend

Yes - The title of this post is "Fall Weekend" because it's FINALLY starting to feel like fall in the great state of Texas!!! I'm so excited and there are a bunch of things I'm really looking forward to doing this fall.
I want to carve a pumpkin, take Connor trick-or-treating, and I would also like to go to the Texas State Fair because I have never been before. I have got to try all that fried food!

Our weekend wasn't too exciting. We caught up on some shows on our DVR. I am so excited we actually have good TV again :) We pretty much just spent time together as a family and enjoyed the great weather.
Connor's Nannie gave him this frog for the bathtub, but he LOVES to suck on the legs. He loves them so much that after I fed him his bottle Saturday morning he croaked because he stuck the legs too far down his mouth! He threw up everywhere....ick!
While we were out and about I found the new Bakerella cookbook
"Cake Pops"
This book is amazing and has such great photos
Look at these OWL cake pops!!!!

He's on the move...world look out!!!
He's been inch worming around all over the place
We also had dinner with Connor's Great Granddaddy Saturday night and Grandma Nell :)
We love them so much & are so blessed to have them in our lives!
Of course the weekend involved Starbucks ya'll!
The Starbucks Diva wall is still going strong!

Speaking of coffee, in an effort to save a buck....
Terence and I got a Nespresso machine this weekend and we LOVE it!
You just put the little tabs in there and bada bing = espresso!!!
AND A WHOLE LOT CHEAPER THAN STARBUCKS!!!!
Of course I will still visit my fave coffee joint, but in these sad economical times I have to look for ways to save and still get my jump start in the morning. We went and purchased the vanilla syrup and caramel syrup from Starbucks, so it pretty much tastes exactly like the drink I get at Starbucks :)
These are all the different flavors of espresso

Also wanted to mention a new movie I am excited to see in 2011!
It's called "Vamps" and stars Alicia Silverstone
INFO:

The feature film, Vamps, which reunites Alicia Silverstone with her Clueless director Amy Heckerling, is set to start shooting in Detroit this week.

Written and directed by Heckerling, the movie is about two beautiful vampires, Silverstone and Krysten Ritter, who are living the good life in New York until love enters the picture and each has to make a choice that will jeopardize her immortality.

What a fun/relaxing weekend! I want to get Bakerella's book too. I'm horrible at cake balls though- so I might just buy it to look at the pretty pics!

I need to get a Starbs pic and send it to you!! Love me some Starbs! Especially now that's it's fall... my favorite time of the year!

Can't believe Connor shoved the froggie down his throat- yikes!! Who knew frogs could be so dangerous ;)

And fair food- my favorite! I went to the State Fair this summer and gained about 10 pounds in an hour, but loved every second of it. Fried pickles were a first I had never had- they were delicious!!

My daughter is 9 months old, how old is Connor? I CAN'T wait to do all of the fall stuff with her either. As for the Starbucks, I used to joke that the only days I was sick while pregnant was the day that I didn't have some b/c the babe was MAD!! So glad that I stumbled on your blog.

Yummy! Ristretto is the best! The shot ends before the bitter part comes out which gives you a sweet drink!
