weekend wrap up

this weekend was awesome.  we seriously have not had a relaxing weekend at our house in months.  months.  friday night we went to the local farm market, got fresh, for real milk.  oh, and in a glass bottle to boot.  so old school, so cool, love it.  then i cooked and relaxed.  ahhh, so nice.  saturday i ran 6 miles, which of course is a great start to the day.  we hung out, then went and hung out with some amazing friends.  ate some amazing food, played yard games, drank beer, came home and had a slumber party with max in my bed.  today was the icing on the cake.  had the most productiv day in a long, long, looong time.  got so much stuff done around the house it's almost unbelievable.  went to the garden center and got the fixin's to make a pumpkin man.  then i did some shopping, made dinner and finally when max woke up we made pumpkin man.  such fun.  oh, and we also are officially cable free.  and i'm not freaking out.  at all.  shocker.
pumpkin maple gooey cake, beyond yum.  recipe coming soon.
