What a wonderful weekend this was... and it being Mother's Day on Sunday just topped it off.  Friday night we started out wonderfully when we served my son some homemade spinach pizza and he was so happy and excited he said for the very first time "PEEEPAH!" which was his version of pizza!  My husband and I could not stop laughing every time he said it.  Oh and the pizza was delicious as well!  We finished off our spinach with a most scrumptious Strawberry Spinach Salad that was unforgettable!  We are really hoping we get another bag of spinach with our CSA delivery tomorrow just so we can continue having both our peeepah and salad! 

Saturday morning mama woke up and went and got herself a facial while daddy and son stayed home and played.  It was so incredibly relaxing and I couldn't have asked for more... but more is what I got!  When I came home my husband and son had Swedish Pancakes and freshly cut strawberries waiting for me.  So sweet!  Then came Sunday which was the sweetest of all... I made and Orzo pasta salad and homemade Focaccia Bread and we took that to the park where we sat, ate and laughed watching our baby boy run around on the grass.  It was heaven.  After the park we went driving around looking at different houses and land dreaming of our future soon to come.

When we got home we felt a little adventurous so we decided to make homemade laundry detergent!  It wasn't so much us feeling adventurous but more so due to the fact that we had run out of laundry detergent and truly didn't have it in the budget to go buy some.  But we did have all necessary ingredients!  It was actually quite easy... I got the recipe off of Tipnut.com and all I needed was a bar of soap grated and melted, 2 cups of baking soda and 2 gallons of hot water.  So far I've done three loads and things are coming out pretty clean... and I have enough to last me weeks!!

It was a wonderful weekend and I can't wait until next.  I hope you had an equally fabulous weekend with your family!
