I never got around to blogging about last weekend, which was super fun, so I'm going to combine it with a post about this weekend.

It started with a girl's night out with a good friend.  We went to an upscale mexican restaurant with a nice patio, perfect for sipping margaritas on a goregous summer evening.  I had butternut squash enchiladas which were delicious, with black beans and cilantro-jicama slaw.  Totally yummy.  I had never had jicama before and the only reason I even knew what it was was from watching "Chopped", he he.

After dinner we went up the street to the neighborhood wine bar and enjoyed a glass of wine on their patio, followed by dessert of salted carmel ice cream sandwiches.

Saturday we went with some friends and their daughter to Lake Tapps.  The girls had a blast swimming and playing with their friend.  Then we all went to dinner at the Rock and watched some of the Seahawk game.

Sadly, this pic with me in a ponytail and no makeup after a day of swimming in the lake is one of the best of me and both girls.

Sunday after church, the girls helped daddy wash the car,

then after dinner we watched the Little Mermaid, which I'd never seen.

Now for this weekend.  We had been looking forward to gettting some projects done around the house, but the calendar quickly filled up with social activities instead.  Tomorrow we are heading up to MV for a last-minute, last chance get-together with my dad and stepmom before they head south for the winter (and fall and spring), then Sunday we're going to have some friends over for a BBQ and maybe go to Rattlesnake Lake with them (still haven't been!).  Monday is Labor Day and we don't have any plans other than to hopefully get some things done around the house and I'm picking a friend up from the airport in the evening.
