Weekend In Pics

Hello everyone!  I hope you all had a nice long weekend.
On Friday afternoon I took my nephew to his first Cubs game...
...And he hustled for a foul ball!  By the way, he loved his big boy's room and has been keeping it clean.   

I find  baking to be so relaxing, not to mention fattening.   I made a peach cobbler with lots of crust.  And you can't forget the vanilla ice cream.
I also like to experiment with cooking.  After trying some really great caprese empanadas at the Randolph St. Market, I decided to recreate the dish myself.  I topped some pie crust with fresh mozzarella, tomatoes, salt, pepper, and Italian seasoning and baked it for less than 15 minutes.  Easy, quick, and tasty dish.  Next time I want to try it with puff pastry.
Snapped this photo of my outfit before I went out Saturday night (don't mind my flip flop). 
I carried this colorful printed clutch from Dots.


  1. OMG my absolute favorite is peach cobbler and this looks sooo good. Once my fast is over, this is first on my list :)

  3. Awww you're such a great aunt-love your tribal clutch
