weekend recap - french toast and pez

We headed over to the Pez manufacturing center and visitor center recently and had so much fun. Who would have thought it was located in Connecticut. It was small, but we took our time going through all the history the candy and dispensers. Did you know it was invented in 1927 in Austria, and it was originally a breath mint? Neither did I. It wasn't until the 1950's that their dispensers were characters, and even space guns, and not until the late 80's that feet were added to the dispensers.

They had a huge collection of different dispensers, and we got to see some new ones come out in the fall. You can't help but want to start a collection when you see so many and get inspired.

The weekend was also filled of food. We went out for brunch and had this yummy french toast with cream cheese and strawberries. And we also were introduced to Korean food, so we stopped by a local Korean and Japanese restaurant and ate some good food. I never had Korean before and not's it's my favorite. I stopped by for lunch a few times this week. 

Have a beautiful week ahead!
