The Weekend Dish 9/29/2012

Happy weekend! I’ve spent the better part of this week getting myself unpacked and re-organized after getting back home from our nearly four-week trip. I had a serious laundry situation! I hope you’ve had a great week and have enjoyed the first week of fall. I love the sunny, crisp days, but unfortunately since getting back home it’s been all rain and grey skies! I finally upgraded my phone yesterday to the new iPhone! Feel free to share any must-have apps in the comments below! I’ve been on Android for two years, so I may be missing some things as I transition back to an iPhone. What do you have planned for this weekend?!

As always, you’ll find a recap of what was posted to the site this week as well as some bookmarked recipes from other blogs. Enjoy!
