When U Smile, I Smile J.Biebs!

Hiyaaaaa! Happy halfway-through-the-week dayyyy! Sorry I haven't posted in a few days.

I blame this character:
Make that a fajillion and one, athankyou.
Yeah I haven't posted because I've been listening to "U Smile" on loop. It's super time consuming being serenaded by The Biebs all day, you know? If you haven't heard it I suggest you RUN to your nearest YouTube and listen. 

Anyhoooo I managed to pull myself away from J.Biebs long enough to have a really fun weekend! Friday night we went to a friends house for dinner. We had amazing cheese fondue, and I am determined to get the recipe and share it with all of you. It looked easy to make, and it was tres delicious! Saturday Joel and I had a cute little date day. We went to breakfast and played mini golf!

The next Tiger? Yikes, I hope not.

For the record, we TIED! And by tied I mean I kinda cheated, but whatever. Semantics. But I did have a hole in one, and it was pretty amazing. Anyway it was just really relaxing to be outside, enjoying each other. Hooray for married dates! Saturday night we hung out with friends and fam. It was pretty chilly so the men made a fire and a bunch of us just sat around and talked. Glorious! And Sunday we had a super top secret meeting with our tech-savvy, and creative friend Nicole. Big things are in store for ATOTS, thanks to her! ;)
Nicole and me. Yay for 'Skins pride at top secret meetings!! (They won because of us, duh.)

I also made these delicious little items...
Umm no I didn't take this picture. Via
Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Spice Bars! I found the recipe over at Blissfully Content, and they are to die for. So good, and totally easy. They are guaranteed to get you in the fall spirit. Just pair them with a Pumpkin Spice Latte, and you will be in HOG HEAVEN! (You can thank Mother NixonSleeve for that little saying.)(I know I do. Daily. And twice on the weekends.)

2 cups all purpose flour
1 tablespoon pumpkin pie spice
1 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
1 1/4 cups sugar
1 large egg
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 cup canned pumpkin puree
1 package (12 oz.) semi-sweet chocolate chips

Makes- 24 bars

1. Preheat the oven to 350. Line a 9x13 pan with tin foil. 
2. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, pie spice, baking soda and salt. Set aside.
3. With an electric mixer combine butter and sugar until smooth. Add egg and vanilla until combined.
4. Now add the pumpkin puree (The mixture should appear curdled. No worries!)
5. Slowly add the dry ingredients. Mix until combined.
6. Fold in the chocolate chips. Finally!

Spread the batter in your prepared 9x13 pan. Bake for 35-40 minutes. 

Done and done. Enjoy!!

OK so listen to how weird this is. Last week, on the same day, Lulu and I both received Jury Duty Questionnaires for our county. I don't know if Fairfax County is just randomly sending these out but no one we know has gotten one besides us. HOW WEIRD WOULD IT BE IF WE WERE PUT ON THE SAME CASE?! The thought literally makes me sweat. In a good way. 
We make jury duty look good. Damn good.
Obvi we would have to act like we didn't know each other, which I have a feeling would be really easy hard. BUT we do have different last names now so as long as we ignore each other in the jury box, I bet peeps would be none the wiser.

What if we get a really amazing celeb case?!?! Or like a triple homicide?!?! (See I would like that because I'm weird and morbid and like crime shows...Lulu would probs prefer a high profile case involving Jessica Simpson.) Either way this has AMAZING written all over it. 

That's all I've got for you on this little Wednesday. Tonight we are heading over to the Pediatrician's office for a meeting and newborn class. I'm anxious and excited!

Don't forget to enter our pillow giveaway! Those pillows are thebombdotcom, and they could be yours!!

Keep cool my babies,

I can honestly say I haven't listened to J. Bieber -- I barely know who he is except he was on the one and only espisode of Shaq Vs. I can't get past his hair -- I'm not ok with it =/ Maybe it's because we have been picking on our MS friends for YEARS for this hair style -- J and I are not fans lol But now that a "grown up" has said his song is amazing, I have to go listen =)
