Friday Blooms!

Happy Friday!
I'm so glad the weekend is here!
Last night Mango got home from a business trip, which means it was my first time spending the night alone without the hubs. I basically did a little retail therapy and came home exahusted, fell asleep and that was that. Exciting huh?
So, since he was coming home I wanted to make a special dinner. At the grocery store I found these pretty bouquets of bright flowers, so I bought 2 and created little arrangements all over the house.
For dinner I decided to tap into my culinary skills and made Barefoot Contessa's Lemon and Garlic Roasted Chicken. It's so easy to make and made the house smell wonderful, plus, it didn't turn out too shabby if I do say so myself. Once it came out of the oven I managed to wrangle my husband long enough to take a picture of the finished product...
For dessert I bought a mini cheesecake and got the baker to write "Welcome Home!" on it, but I was distracted and not fast enough to stop my husband from digging in before I could get a picture. Bummer. However, on a happy note, I was distracted by this awesome chocolate pizza slice that he brought back!
Isn't it cool? Those are white chocolate mushrooms on the top if you can believe it. Can't wait to try some of it this weekend.
No definite plans yet for the weekend. We might take it easy, catch the new Wolverine movie (whoo! hoo! I'm excited about this one), and spend some around the house.
Have a great weekend! See you on Monday!
