Exciting Weekend

Friday was a birthday party: Happy Birthday Brianna!!! And my sister-in-law Sue threw her a pasta party! It was AWESOME, especially since I crave carbs so much.  There was a variety of pasta and three different types of sauces.  I ate two:

Sue's homemade Vodka Sauce (which, in case you didn't realize Susie, you are making for me sometime soon) and my brother-in-laws homemade Alfredo Sauce, both awesome.  I had two plates!!

Yesterday the hubster and I took a road trip to Vermont to purchase a car - the car was a no go, but the road trip was fun. Here is the one landmark we visited:

Bennington Monument

Vermont is less than one hour from us, but we were gone all day.  We ate out a bunch, but my favorite was what we ate for lunch.  We went into this place in Bennington that I really didn't want to walk into - it looked like a straight up bar to me, but Pete says those are the best places to eat sometimes.  I trust his judgement, and he was right (sorry honey).  I was looking for more of a hippy-tofu-sprout sandwich shop, but Pete told me that wasn't typical of Bennington.  Anyway, the place we ate was absolutely delicious!! Pete ordered a Chicken Cordon Bleu sandwich, which was sooo good, and it came with homemade chips.

I ordered French Onion Soup with a side of Brushetta - all of the food was so delicious!

Today we continued Craigslist car shopping, and guess what?! We found a car!! A Subaru Outback to be exact, and we love it!

My new whip
We celebrated by going to Chipolte:
