This weekend, I . . .

. . . hosted a baby shower for a dear friend, who is leaving for China in a week to pick up her new daughter.

. . . decided I needed a little something extra to put in the shower favor bags.  Went to the store and found a 2 lb. bag of Jordan almonds.  Now have 1 7/8 lbs. of Jordan almonds leftover.  Forgot to give out the favors until the last five guests were on the way out the door. They all went home with handfuls of party favors, to give to their kids.

. . .  watched the Giants/Phillies game.

. . . made my husband an omelet for breakfast, and made pancakes for the rest of the family, because that's what they all like.

. . . celebrated my husband's birthday (Happy Birthday, Sweetie!). 

. . . went grocery shopping.

. . . sat on the back porch, wearing jeans and a sweatshirt, drank a cup of coffee and admired the fall colors.

. . . decorated my front porch with pumpkins that Emily and I got at the pumpkin patch last week.

See what everyone else did this weekend, over at Becky's.

Hi Karen, what a great weekend, and so exciting that your friend is adopting a child from China! And what a good friend you are - throwing a shower. I was laughing when you shared that you had forgot to hand out the favors - I've done that so many times, and then I'm left with a ton of cute little things that have absolutely no purpose!! So funny. I'm at my dad's this weekend - Bob and Jan are down in Virginia with Jennifer and Marc and Connor - it was Connor's third birthday, Colleen's birthday and my mom's birthday on Sunday. Enjoy your porch and the beautiful fall colors! Ciao, bella!

Sounds like a nice weekend ... just the right combination of fun stuff and busy stuff. I like weekends like that!

I think my favorite thing was your sitting on the porch with coffee, dressed in a sweatshirt. I ADORE sweatshirt weather.

Karen, thanks so much for stopping by my blog. I like your header better than mine!

And if you truly were over my back yard fence, yes, I would certainly cook for you.

Have a wonderful week!
