The One Where Family Visits...




Another good weekend, and another team who plays OSU, bites the dust. ;)

But today, I'm OK with that because we leave for California so soon! Come ask me that next week and I'm SURE I will be feeling very differently.

Our weekend can be summed up with: good friends, eating out, lots of football, and even some 4 wheeling. Friday-We took Billy's friends to The Pint House in the Short North for dinner and then to Seventh Son Brewery for some drinks afterwards. Ever since I got the truffle mac and cheese when we were in Chicago, it now pops off the menu at me and basically forces me to order it. My girlfriend Jen and I split the skillet mac and cheese at The Pint House and it TOPPED the truffle mac and cheese in Chicago. Oh my goodness...so so good.

Saturday-We all got up and went to get coffee together before the rest of Billy's family came into town. They got in around noon and we just played games outside in our backyard until we headed to campus to tailgate for the Ohio State game!

As we were all just hanging out in the backyard, all of a sudden Billy's family friend who lives in Cleveland drives through our backyard on his 4 wheeler...no one even had any idea he was coming! He was 4 wheeling somewhere else in Ohio and decided to randomly surprise us and come visit. Within 2 minutes of him arriving, I hopped on the back of that 4 wheeler and took it for a spin around our neighborhood.


Oh, I also made these brownies per Erin's suggestion. You should probably just go buy these ingredients today and make them.

One box of your favorite brownie mix
One big log of chocolate chip cookie dough
One box of Oreos (preferably the orange Halloween ones ;))

Grease the bottom of your brownie pan, mix up the brownie mix, layer the cookie dough on the bottom, then layer Oreos on top, top with the brownie mix. Bake according to the brownie mix box.

Then, eat your heart out.

I have a lot to do before we leave (I think I have 3 different to-do lists scattered around in different areas of our house), but I will be posting a couple more times this week because I have two great giveaways coming up soon that I know you will want to enter (hint hint Zappos!), so be on the lookout for those this week. :)

California, I'm comin' for you!
{we are even excited for the flight...hello gorgeous mountain views!!}
