Chocolate, chocolate, and chocolate

This weekend my friend Catherine came up from Little Rock to spend the weekend with us. We had such a good time. Friday night we went to Bonefish Grill and did a little shopping before we headed back to the house. Once back at the house we just hung out and talked....something we don't get to do very often :( Saturday we got up and went shopping pretty much all day! I didn't get much accomplished but she did! Last night, Andy cooked dinner for us and we baked some yummy goodies. We baked oreo triffle balls, peanut butter balls, and chocolate covered pretzels.That is a lot of chocolate!! The only pictures I have of this weekend were of us baking! I will post the recipes as well!
Here we are in our aprons getting ready to bake
