Yumminess 101

This weekend was one of my yummiest weekend ever. Now, it's a Monday and I am feeling so guilty for pigging out.Saturday night the fiancé invited my family out for dinner to celebrate our engagement. We have decided on going for a long engagement. We will be tying the knot by August of 2013. It was fun to see my family just as excited for the wedding as we are. His side of the family hasn't met my side of the family yet. Just thinking about this makes me nervous.

They surprised us with a coffee crunch cake. This cake was deeee-licious!
With my mom.
Churros dipped in Nutella. I had about 10 of these!
There was an open cooking station which was a lot of fun to see.

We were still having a good Saturday when before we knew it, we were bidding Saturday goodbye.

Sunday was yet another yummy day.This was a very cheesy, beefy chimichangga. yum!
shrimps! I know the picture looks gross, but I swear the shrimps were soooooooooooo good!

Cheers to a yummy new week!

It warms my heart seeing you look so happy--and seeing the food is making me hungry! =)

My parents and in-laws have zero in common, but that didn't effect the wedding or our marriage at all...so don't be nervous. The in-laws already love you, so you're set.
