Weekend recap

Friday, Geof and I went to Wimpys for dinner and then headed to Starbucks so that I could get a skinny cinnamon dolce latte. We went to the pet store briefly and finally headed to Home Depot to order a new storm door (the landscapers broke our door last week). Once we got back home, we caught up on the DVR.

Saturday was a fabulous day and I needed it! We started the day off at a craft fair and browsed around. We tried taco soup that the church ladies made at the fair and it was so good that I asked for the recipe. After the fair, we headed across the way to the Thomas Massey House for the Colonial Harvest Festival. People were dressed in costumes from colonial times and they were giving tours of the historical home. They were also baking fresh bread in a beehive oven and making a roast over the hearth. It smelled amazing.


Cute little decoration I purchased at the craft fair

After the fair and festival we headed to movies to see Jackass 3D. We didn’t watch it in 3-D, which for certain parts was probably a good thing. Some of the stunts these guys do makes me wonder how they’re still alive. Some parts were funny and others disgusting. I still found it entertaining.



From the movies, we headed to West Chester and went to Mas Mexicali Cantina. This is a newer restaurant and we will definitely go back. The d├ęcor was interesting and the vibe very cool. It was started by two best friends that did a lot of traveling to Mexico and California and they wanted to the restaurant and food to be reminiscent of their experiences. I can honestly say that we don’t have many places like that around us and it was a breath of fresh air. The food was delicious and portions more than enough. I didn’t even eat half of my burrito. We made it home in time to watch the rest of the Phillies game, which they lost unfortunately.



Pink Cadillac Margarita...so good and on special for $3!

Sunday was a big sports day at our house and both the Eagles and Phillies won. My mom came over in the evening and then I ran out to the grocery store to get some things. I made the taco soup for dinner that we had the day before at the craft fair along with some homemade cornbread. I will have to share the recipe because it was out of this world.

You guys always enjoy life to the fullest. Very envious. BTW...the art looks like the snood characters from the classic early 2000s video game.
