This weekend could not have been any better. We kicked it off with a birthday dinner of escargot, trout, and a chocolate souffle. On Saturday, we hit up the park in this gorgeous weather, I found an alabaster lamp at an estate sale for $30 for my tiny home office, bought Stella's Halloween costume, and we spent hours in the yard repainting our white picket fence and planting hydrangeas. I also made a lasagna for an old high school friend who just had a baby and I caught up on some blog reading and recorded shows (secretly loving Sarah Michelle Geller's Ringer on the CW).
