This weekend was a much needed break from moving and organizing the house (though we did do a little bit of that in between some fun and relaxation).

On Friday night we had some good old fashioned fun with charades at our house.    It was fun to entertain in our house for the first time and charades brings out my competitive side!

On Saturday, we relaxed on the porch for a long time and started watching Bloodline on Netflix.  The first episode was iffy, but now I'm addicted.  We also moved the last of our things from my parents' house and they were kind to enough to give us their Air Hockey table for our Rec Room.  I can't wait to beat muffin at Air Hockey very soon!

On Saturday night we made Gnocchi.  When I was in college, I spent a semester in Rome.  While there,  I learned how to make several dishes and Gnocchi is one of my favorites to cook.  I decided to get everyone involved in the process and get some help rolling the Gnocchi out.  It was much more fun to have everyone cooking with me.  I will share my recipe soon!

We spent Sunday lazing around the house since it was pouring rain outside, but I did get a great picture of our Japanese bridge.  My dad gave this bridge to my mom for their 15th wedding anniversary and they decided to paint it red over the weekend.  I love the way it looks!

We had a great weekend settling into the house and actually enjoying entertaining and cooking in it!  We have some patio furniture coming on Wednesday and I'm looking forward to seeing our outdoor living space get finished just in time for Summer entertaining!

Linking with Biana & Meghan for weekending.
