This weekend was nothing short of perfect!
Friday night we headed up to Ocean City for the 2011 Seagull Century bike ride. The boys signed up for a 100 mile bike ride to support our alma mater, Salisbury University and so many other amazing charities including the Alzheimer's Association, Habitat for Humanity, The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society and local non-profits!
We had a great time relaxing, crafting, drinking, beaching and much more! Here are a few photos to take you through our weekend!
After watching Bridesmaids and eating breakfast, the girls went for a walk on the beach
We ran into this lil sand crab
Lots of champagne and sparkling moscato were consumed. This is my favorite bottle!
I had all the girls make their own chalkboard base wine glasses for the weekend! See my how-to here.
We also made washer bracelets! Here is mine with my amazing birthday present from CL.
The girls picnicking at the finish line. Wine, fruit and crafts!
Some of the boys crossing the finish line.
Me and CL. I was so proud of him! He had only biked 50 miles before and only started race biking 2 months ago. I was jumping up and down like crazy when I saw him come in!
Ready to go out and celebrate.
The girls with their friendship bracelets (ha!) and glow stick bracelets I picked up at Michaels.
As promised, below is the Pumpkin French Toast recipe I made this weekend!
Pumpkin Pie French Toast:
Recipe/Photo Adapted and Modified from Closet Cooking
1/3 cup milk
1/3 cup pure pumpkin puree
1/4 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 teaspoon baileys caramel liquor (optional)
1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
3 tablespoons brown sugar
10 pieces of bread
Combine all ingredients (except bread) together in shallow bowl. Dredge bread in mixture on both sides. Cook in a buttered medium high pan until both sides have browned.
I served these with syrup and powdered sugar!
I'll put up the Pumpkin Fruit Dip recipe this week and the Washer Bracelet tutorial tomorrow!
