That was easily the most jam-packed weekend I've had in a long while.  I like having places to go and things to do, but I'm kind of glad that this Monday finds me with nothing to do but recoup and reorganize.

Rose's German Chocolate Cake

Last Thursday and Friday were the annual UDA convention and Mr Renn had a research/literature review article to represent, as well as some CE courses to attend.  We were able to make a spur-of-the-moment temple trip that night (thanks Mom!) and cap the evening by requesting neapolitan shakes at In-N-Out. We recommend it, if you are into that sort of sugar-consumption.

Saturday was stuffed to the gills with errands.  A baby shower, an Opera date, and Mr Renn and I FINALLY ordered new glasses.  I've been wearing the same pair for almost 5 years.  And I am getting prescription sunglasses for the first time.  My future headache-avoiding self is thrilled.   And I made Rose's German Chocolate Cake for Mr Renn's brother's birthday.  I toasted the coconut and skipped the nuts, but I think it was a hit.  (I didn't get to eat much myself.... so those who tried it, how was it?)

Sunday, after church, we had two family birthday parties, and then (just as our Gentleman had a mind-boggling blow-out), I had to slip away to participate in a cable TV filming for my college friend Jen.  I expect that adventure will warrant it's own post if I can get it written in a way I'm satisfied with.  Just know this - there were tears and guilt and limonatas, and oodles of constructive conversations.  And I was mic'd.  Yikes.

Doesn't all of that kind of make you want to stay in your pajamas until noon?  That's exactly what it did to me.....
