Another Weekend Over

December weekends are always so hectic. Saturday night Rich and I headed back up the road to have dinner with a group that I used to work with. It was really great to see everyone.
After that we did some shopping, Target and one of the grocery stores.
We stopped at a place called delicious to check out their baked goods.

Look at all these beautiful cupcakes decorated for the holidays.

I should have gotten closer with these pics. They were beautiful.

Rich and I decided to share a slice of cake. It was a Hawaiian cake with some pineapple. Yum. Thanks Kim for telling me about this place.
After the cake we headed over to one of the Greensboro neighborhoods to check out the Christmas lights. These are not the tacky Christmas lights these are magical.

They are the lighted balls that are suspended in the tree branches. It is magical to drive down a street that has hundred if them.

The pics do not do it justice.
Yesterday was just working around the house. It seems at least one day during the weekend I spend cooking for the upcoming week.

For dinner I made this crockpot beef and barley soup recipe from the Tasty Kitchen. It was perfect for the rainy day we had.
I did stitch a few strands worth last night, but once I finally got settled it was time to go to bed.
Now a busy week begins. I have a Dr. appointment and plans to catch up with friends.
I hope everyone has a great week. Be safe and kind!

The cakes and the soup look so yummy!
I love the lights this time of year and can't wait to go through one nearby neighborhood. Usually do that after leaving Christmas Eve service.

Have a great week!

Glad you finally got to try Delicious! It's my favorite.

We love the neighborhood lights, David walked through there with his fancy camera last night to try and capture them. But you can't capture magic on film. :D

Those baked goods looked yummy! You had much restraint to walk away with just one piece of cake. ;)

Christmas lights are my favorite thing to see this time of the year.

I could not walk away without sampling those scrumptious looking cakes.
