Another perfect fall weekend has come to a close. I’m trying to soak in all this sunny fall weather before the grey sets in, which is usually November. This last weekend was a good mix of low-key and active, which is my ideal blend.
Friday was all about the hubs. It was Dimples Birthday, and even though he had to work I tried to start his day off right with notes on the mirror, streamers/decorations, that kind of thing. That meant having to get up super early and try to sneak around setting things up. Good thing he’s a deep sleeper, because it’s hard to be stealth just feet away! We went to an upscale pool/comedy club downtown with some friends later that evening. Dimples has always loved pool. I am horrible, but it’s a fun game (unless he clears the table and I don’t even get a chance to play, that’s just aggravating).
I’ve raved about Bakery Nouveau before, but if you are ever in the area it really is worth a trip to West Seattle. I got him a delicious carrot cake that they let us bring in. The Parlor‘s food was good too, even getting fancy with it as seen below by the duck corn dog on a stick:).
My big rant for the night was the comedy club part. The show was supposed to start at 10:00, but getting people seated was so disorganized that we did not get in the doors till 10:50! On top of that, there was a 2 item minimum you were required to buy once inside. It was on the super small print on the ticket. It’s a good thing the acts were funny, because we all needed a laugh after waiting in line for so long. Jon Lovitz was the headliner, and he was great. I learned that he can play the piano and sing too! Who knew? Dimples is known for his infectious laugh, and he loves, loves comedy. He grew up watching all the SNL shows, and has a rich appreciation for its cast members. So pool and comedy were a perfect Bday combo for him :).
Saturday was all about pumpkins and Halloween. We headed out to Fox Holllow Family Farm, so of course we had to find a family to attach ourselves to first:). There were pumpkins, but there were also a lot of farm animals, a little hay bale maze for the kiddos, and even a giant pumpkin bouncy house. Yes, they have such things! It was fun watching the boys run around, and at the end we picked out 2 pumpkins that are waiting to be carved.
After taking a brief power nap (watching kids is exhausting lol) and trying to wash off the hay,cat,horse allergens, it was time for our girls Halloween (cheesy) movie day! One guess as to what we watched?
I was going to make these, but when I heard of the vast amount of baked goods I chose power nap over muffin. I’ll save those bad boys for another day! Cara whipped up so many goodies that we were even sent home with leftovers. Doggie bag of pure desserts? Yes please! It was a laid back perfect day:).
It always feels strange not going to church on Sunday, but we had an early medical type appointment that could only be done then. Sadly, we missed and after heading back from Seattle’s “Pill Hill” we watched some football and soccer until it was time to head back out again.
We met up with some friends to meet their (absolutely adorable) new baby and catch up. We ate at Girardi’s, which has an amazing happy hour menu that just might be worth the trek up to Edmonds for again. Then in attempt to burn off one ravioli, we walked down to the water/ferry terminal and back. Great end to the weekend!
Hope you all have a great week!
