2. Chris saw this Peanut Butter Cup Overload Cake over my shoulder on Pinterest and requested it for his birthday yesterday. I was more than happy to oblige. My frosting job was a bit hurried here! I could have let the ganache cool a bit longer before pouring it. We brought it to dinner with the family last night. It was DIVINE! It tastes even better cold, the next day.

3. We got to attend Chris’ brother, Max’s college senior art show last night too. So proud of Max!

4. Hoping we get another weekend before the baby comes to celebrate Chris’ birthday a little more with things like naps and movies. 

5. Wishing you a wonderful weekend!! XO

Linking up with the Lauren Elizabeth crew!
