This weekend completely flew by!  I’ve had a lot going on lately (work-wise and personally) so I feel like my weekend relaxing and me-time is extra precious.  I know myself, and I really need to get a chance to refresh and recharge when possible to stay motivated and keep working hard.

This weekend was fun, though.  We celebrated my mother-in-law’s birthday (which is today, happy birthday Marcia AND Sara!) by seeing Motown on broadway.  What a fun show! The music was fantastic and the entire thing was so entertaining.  Yesterday we went to a housewarming party for friends and brought these brownies.  It was so nice to see some of our friends and steal time with their baby.  She is an adorable 9-month old that is happy ALL the time. It is amazing.

And these brownies?  What brownie doesn’t do well with a little buttercream on top?  You could of course leave out the food coloring and eat them any time of year, but the pink is perfect for Friday’s holiday.  If you do nothing else for Valentine’s Day, I’m pretty sure that eating chocolate is required.
