random clips from the weekend

after a slightly disappointing dinner at an italian restaurant, one scoop each of amaretto and nutella gelato lifted my spirits.  heaven!
my nephew, mason rockin’ out to prince’s “let’s go crazy”.  during the guitar solos, he’ll close his eyes so intensely and strum his air guitar like a real rock star.  in this picture, he’s yelling, “rrrooooooock!!!“.  he’s the funniest little boy!
the borders in my area is closing this week (booo!).  the bright side is that everything is 60% to 70% off regular prices.  i bought the foodie handbook, by pim techamuanvivit (check out her blog) and so far i’m loving it!  she has some great advice on how to eat, cook and drink like a foodie.  she’s really knowledgeable on the subject of food and the tone is fun, casual and unpretentious.  i probably wouldn’t have bought it at $24.95, but at $10 it was too good to pass up!
nutella brownies (check back tomorrow for more on these).

 finally got to see my best friend, jen after what seems like forever! i love this picture…it’s so us.

other highlights:

-when i told mase to “go wake up bobby”, instead of shaking him out of slumber, he planted a soft little kiss on his nose!  i nearly died from a heart melt!

-jamming to “crazy bitch” in my car.

-finally getting to see leap year.  and though it wasn’t the best movie ever, it was satisfactory for a lazy sunday night.

any highlights in your weekend?

    Your nephew is so super cute!! I am so sad Borders is closing, I haven't even checked out the sales yet though! Quite excited for that.

    Bookstores keep closing down..it's kind of scary.
