What a weekend!

I am having an awesome weekend. It started with my FAB-U-LOUS Girls night out with Amy. And I am telling you that it was meant to be. Seriously. We went to Don Pablos at 6pm on a Friday night and didn't even have to wait for a table! How crazy is that? Dinner was awesome. Talking with Amy was the BEST. And we had lots of fun shopping in Target. Everything just seemed to fall in place perfectly. Even my hubby was on board and happy about my night out. How cool is that?!?

Today after breakfast we loaded the kiddies up in the minivan, turned on the DVD player and headed to Lancaster County, PA. We love it up there and go at least 3 times a year. Most of the time we go for a weekend or week, but once in awhile it is a day trip like today. Our first stop was Shady Maple Market where we bought a maple walnut pie, shoo fly pie, coffee cake flavored decaf coffee, smoked beef sticks, smoked cheddar cheese, Caffeine Free Mountain Dew (the only place in the world that I have ever found it.....I love MD but cant have the caffeine), kettle chips and a few other goodies. Then we ate lunch at the Shady Maple Smorgasbord.
Anyone who goes there will tell you how great the food is, and how HUGE of a selection. It is 300 foot long.....that's a lot of food to pick from. Plus 5 carving and grilling stations. We all waddled out of there with full bellies. After gorging ourselves we headed to the Rockvale outlets. I was looking to replace my small cookie scoop but couldn't find one. I did end up with a few new cookie cutters and a Pasta cooker for the camper.

Then we window shopped in a few stores, and then headed to the Hanes Vanity Fair store. I got 3 playtex bras for $14.99 each, plus a pack of undies.....and I had a $10 off coupon so it was like getting my undies for free....yay! We went into a few more stores and bought a few more things like these new train shirts for the boys.
Then headed to Maplehofer Dairy. We buy milk there because it is so fresh and so good. They milk the cows and bottle it right on the premises. Hubby was raised a dairy farmer and doesn't like store bought milk. He says it isn't as good.....but he loves Maplehofer milk.

Now we are home and I am exhausted after my two days out. But it was totally worth it.
How is your weekend going?

My mother swears by the pasta maker! She just picked one up for me. What a great weekend!
