Weekend Recap

Come Sunday night I was totally not ready for this weekend to end.

I traveled early Friday morning to see a client and got to witness this beautiful sunrise. Something about a sunrise instantly puts me in a better mood.

Saturday I cleaned and organized the house and it felt amazing. As a reward for our hard work, that afternoon we tried out the new Smoothie King that just opened. I didn't realize most of their smoothies are meant to be meal replacements which also means a lot of calories. I ordered the boys and myself the kid sizes which are 12oz and around 100-150 calories instead of the regular shakes which go up to 32oz and some are 500 calories. It was ok, but I think I like Orange Julius better.

Saturday night J and I watched both American Snipper and The Imitation Game. Two totally different movies, but I really liked them both. The Imitation Game was way more interesting than I thought it was going to be. 

Sunday morning I made a recipe I've had pinned forever. You guys. I made toffee. Doesn't that sound crazy? I made a freakin candy. For some reason I thought it would be totally hard and complicated, but I followed this recipe and it was so easy and so delicious!

It finally rained and I got to wear my new Hunter boots for the first time. Who would have ever thought I'd be wishing for rain.

The rest of Sunday was spent cuddling, playing Wii, and having tackling sessions.

J had a meeting with a client so on his way home he picked up dinner and we ate sushi while watching the SAG awards. Anyone else underwhelemd by them? It was the perfect ending to a weekend I wish didn't have to end.

I'm hoping this week flies by as our first baby turns 6 on Thursday and we can't wait to celebrate! How is that even possible?!?

  1. MMM I love toffee. Yours looks so good. What did you think of American Sniper?

    1. If you love toffee, you HAVE to make this one! I thought American Sniper was good. I had read a little bit about the guy online before I saw it and there's some contradicting things, but it's still a good portrayal of all that our military go through. The ending was pretty abrupt so I wish they'd expanded on that more. Have you seen it?

    1. Thanks! You should definitely get a pair. They're sold out a lot of places in common sizes, but Zappos seemed to have a lot in stock:)
