Working on the weekend...

Hooray for the weekend! Rob and I were so whipped last night that we went to bed at 8:45 p.m.... are we old or what?! We both read for a bit and were lights-out by 9:30 p.m. We woke up early this morning since we'd been sleeping so long. We headed to the market and got stuff for the week (and the ingredients for a Sunday pot roast - mmmmm!), and then I went into the office for about four hours. We are gearing up for a big conference next week, and I had to get some things finished. It was a productive few hours!

I stopped at the mall on my way home to return a dress and a blazer. The gal at Ann Taylor was totally stumped, but thank goodness she finally figured it out. Tonight is a hot date at Chick-fil-A and a trip to Target. We are really living it up this weekend!

Right now I'm baking a chocolate angel food cake... kind of. After it had been in the oven for 20 minutes, I remembered that I hadn't added the cocoa into the mix. Ooops. So it will be a regular angel food with chocolate icing. Friends are hosting us for dinner Monday night, and I'm bringing dessert. I figured the cake can cool this evening (upside down, which is always wacky) and I could ice it tomorrow.

Hope you are having a great weekend!

I have to stop reading your blog. You are always cooking/baking and it makes me feel inferior. Of course, you also go to Target like every day and that makes me feel jealous. And then you have the "we were in bed asleep by 9" statement and that makes me weep and covet like crazy. I think you might be the antichrist.

I am just kidding, you know that! I'm sitting on my booty and thinking about getting off it to bake something. The angel food with chocolate icing sounds super tasty right now. Though it would be nice if I could just have a slice of yours! :-)

Andrea - don't forget we are kid free! I don't have near the responsibility you have - just Rob to manage. :) Think back to your "before kids" days... bet you had early nights and casual trips to here and there too.

Wish I could send you a slice of cake!! :)
