Sweet Tooth

This weekend was a pretty good mix of crazy busy and very relaxing... wait is that possible? lol Both Saturday and Sunday, I decided to go volunteer up at the Austin Convention Center where I just helped set up and organize some events they had going on.

At first when I got there I was hoping it'd be a gorgeous wedding or something - but the two events were a Fencing Tournement and a Comic Book Convention. My initial reaction was kinda "blah", but the fencing tourney was pretty neat and I walked around during the Comic Book part and it was awesome!!
 
I actually met a ton of stars from movies (we weren't allowed to take pics :(...) but here are some of the peeps I got to meet..
 
The main cast of ghost hunters...

Here are some recap pictures taken by @Do512 on the Comic Con Event: CLICK HERE to SEE!
 
 
There were many others there too that I could go on for a while. Either way, it was a pretty cool experience and I felt good volunteering and helping out. They also had a kid's costume contest and so many crazy talented artist that were drawing comics right in front of my eyes - it's insane!

The other half of my weekend was spent on the couch - watching football. :) Scott had a guy's poker night last night at his buddy's house... so I spent a good few hours to myself... baking!

Not sure what got into me, but I wanted to make a TON of sweets! I had a wild sweet  tooth. Does that ever happen to you?

I baked everything. I pulled up Mrs. Ruthie's post she had over the weekend of no-bake granola bites, and made those...
[you can find that recipe here]

 


I also used a lot of the ingredients from the granola bars plus a box of cake mix I hadn't used to make some muffins and cookies!


Found this new amazing "easy frosting"- which... don't hate: I am artistically challenged and can't ever do frosting right! So this works for me!! LOL



I even made some already pre mixed cookies our friend Matt brought over...


 

See!? I told you I had a crazy sweet tooth.... jeeeeez! :)
 

This weekend I also spent some good QT with my little boo...


 
He's gettin' SOO big right?? Aww but he will always be a baby to me!!
 

Hope everyone is enjoyin' their Monday!

Way to volunteer girl! The event sounds like it was pretty spectacular. And p.s. Your nails are GORGEOUS! I love the french manicure look so much. If I didn't play piano I'm pretty sure I'd have my nails done to look just like that! Beautiful... sigh...
