weekend in the life
Friday we headed over to our friend’s place for pizza + salad + wine + cookies + good tv-less conversations. I took zero photos haha. Saturday morning Maggie woke us up and wouldn’t go back to sleep, so I got up and took her on a quick walk.
Soon after we headed over to meet Layne & Marco for breakfast. They will be moving out of Houston soon, so we’re trying to soak up as much family time as possible before they leave.
We went to Morningstar. The first time I tried their donuts, I wasn’t a fan. BUT I gave their donuts another try and got their nutella stuffed donut annnnddd…I LOVED it.
They didn’t skimp on the nutella either, which was awesome! I would definitely order this donut again!
After breakfast we headed home and did yard work for the rest of the morning. I had a tough day at work Wednesday and my mom had stopped by and dropped me off some snapdragon flowers + a pumpkin + gorgeous plant.
So I planted the snapdragons in our planter box :)
Then I started pulling weeds and immediately got stung by a wasp. HOLY CRAP. IT HURT! My thigh is still swollen.
So I took a break and ate lunch. I went with a salad with roasted sweet potatoes + dried cranberries + chicken + goat cheese + cheddar cheese + asparagus.
Then some strawberries…
Later I went to yoga…
Afterwards I hung out outside and called to talk to my best and oldest friend for awhile. We live in separate states and do our best to not go too long without talking.
THEN I had heard that fat cat creamery had two new soft serve flavors for fall that I was super excited to try.
Last month their soft serve flavors were english breakfast tea + lemon peel. This month they have brown sugar cinnamon + butternut squash. They were so good! I got a swirl of the two flavors.
Then we hung out at the house for the rest of the afternoon/evening with some Mindy Project watching paired with a handful of peanuts + chocolate chips.
Later for dinner I made homemade arepas filled with black beans, cilantro, chile powder, cumin and cheddar cheese. Paired with a super lime-filled sparkling water.
Before bed I had two more of the leftover arepas for a savory snack.
Sunday morning I woke up and made us crepes using an Alton Brown crepe recipe. I wish the batter was a bit more sweet, but other than that they were yummy. I filled mine with peanut butter, chocolate chips, nutella and maple syrup.
After church we grocery shopped. I got home and took Maggie on a walk (that wasn’t very enjoyable because she tries to chase and eat all the squirrels she sees and nearly rips my arm off in the process).
The weather was incredible outside, so later I brought a blanket and my pouf into our backyard and listened + took notes on an audiobook.
For lunch I had more arepas + a broccoli-blue cheese dressing salad.
After lunch we headed to see Mamma Mia! with my family. It’s one of my favorite musicals. I know all the songs and I’ve seen the show a couple times and never get tired of it. We ended up having an extra ticket so one of my good friends was able to come along with us.
After we went to dinner as a family. I took an evening walk. Had some Ben & Jerry’s + chocolate pretzels. Watched the debate. Practiced my handstands.
