five weekend favorites.
#one. We went to Hugs & Donuts.
Saturday morning Andrew and I woke up and went to Hugs & Donuts for breakfast. We got some bad news last week and wanted to get out of the house and keep busy.
This place is pretty fun. They have various flavors of milk and iced coffee on tap. So creative!
Plus, they had SOOO many cake donut flavors to choose from.
I’m team cake donuts all the way and Andrew is team classic yeast donuts. I got a cinnamon sugar donut and a blueberry donut with lemon glaze. Both were awesome. Andrew went with chocolate + sprinkles and another one that I think was strawberry cheesecake.
Their lattes were delicious too!
#two. Vine-covered House.
My favorite part of being an adult is getting to have a house that is covered in vines. I trimmed some of the ivy back this weekend and got attacked by some wasps. I took that as the universe telling me to let the vines grow. I love that they look messy and cover the whole house. It makes me feel like I’m living in a tree house.
Life sucks sometimes. My little sister reminded me that one day, in Heaven, pain we feel here won’t be a thing. Knowing that brings me a lot of peace.
#4. Mexican Lasagna.
Friday night I layered doughy corn tortillas, salsa, shredded rotisserie chicken, a bunch of sautéed zucchini + tomatoes, a bunch of cheese, and a bunch of cilantro. I baked the whole thing for 30 minutes. Then topped it with guacamole, cilantro, feta and lime. We ate it all weekend. Yum.
#5. Afternoon thunderstorms.
We’ve been having a lot of random thunderstorms. It’ll be completely sunny, then it’ll just start thundering and raining. I love it. I spent a lot of the weekend listening to the rain and finishing reading The Girl on the Train. I enjoyed it, but I liked Gone Girl better.
Have a nice Monday, friends:)
