Weekend Photos in Review

by Cate on November 13, 2011

Dinner by Candlelight
A half-hour before Mystic and his kids were due over for dinner Friday night, a transformer blew outside, taking down the power of most of our neighborhood. Awesome.

No Power - Again

See how dedicated I am? Even though we had no power, I continued on with as much prep work and assembly as I could, even chopping cauliflower by flashlight. After two hours, we abandoned ship and went out for pizza. A call to JCP&L was completely unreassuring. They advised us not to fill our refrigerators just yet as power will be intermittent over the next few weeks as they still recover from Snowmageddon. I kid you not.

Luckily the Netbook had a good deal of battery life left, so three of the kids worked on a short story together.

New Favorite Picture of the Kids
This might be my new favorite picture of the kids. For now.

Saturday Sunset
I think I need an “I brake for sunsets” bumper sticker. Oh, and rainbows. And any other worthy photo opp.

A Heart for Mom
“Look, Mommy, I made you a heart. ‘Cause I love you.”

Sweetnickers, I hope you had an awesome weekend yourselves. If you missed Friday’s post, you can find out all about my new favorite dryer accessory right here.  And you can see a sneak peek of a photo shoot I did on Friday right here.  This Friday?  A giveaway.  Tomorrow?  I think it’s time to tell you about these ridiculously awesome teriyaki steak sandwiches.  Until then… xoxo

My boyfriend sent me a picture of a sunset on his drive home Saturday…it was beautiful, you would have liked it.

Aside from the power fail, it looks like the weekend was pretty awesome! I think you need a bumper sticker that says “I brake for Kodak moments”. All-encompassing.

Crazy that they told you to hold off on stocking the fridge because of more power outages! Serious fail there!
Love the new photo of your 2 kiddo’s… adorable!

And, don’t think I missed that Welcome to New Jersey photo… I’m remembering our attempts at Welcome to Connecticut, NY and MA! lol!

Oh, no, sorry to hear about the ongoing saga of continuing power outages, yikes! No fun dealing with the whole uncertainty of that, sheesh. Ms. Sadie looks as prepared in your truck as I am in the winter! Gloves, big coat, hood, check–I’m probably one of the few Southerners who owns 5+ down coats, plus down gloves, hee! I ain’t gonna be cold, no sirrreee!
That pic of the kids is gorgeous and amazing–when did Nick get so dang grown-up looking all of a sudden????
