Weekend Recap

When Sunday night rolled around I was so not ready for this weekend to end.

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

We spent a good chunk of Saturday cleaning and organizing the house and it felt amazing. As a reward for our hard work we treated ourselves to Smoothie King which just opened in our town. I didn't realize most of their smoothies are meant to be meal replacements which means a lot of them have a lot of calories. We all ordered the kid sizes which are 12oz and only 100-150 calories instead of the regular shakes which go up to 32oz and 500+ calories. The flavor we got was ok, but I think I like Orange Julius better.

Saturday night J and I watched two movies! American Snipper and The Imitation Game. They were two totally different movies but we really liked them both. The Imitation Game was a lot more interesting than I thought it was going to be. 

Sunday morning I made a toffee recipe that I've had pinned forever. For some reason I thought it would be so hard and complicated to make, but I followed this recipe and it was easy and delicious!

It finally rained and I got to wear my new Hunter boots for the first time. 

The rest of Sunday was spent cuddling, playing Wii, and snuggling on the couch. 

J had a meeting with a client so he picked up sushi for me for dinner and I ate while watching the SAG awards. Anyone else underwhelemd by it? 

I'm hoping this week flies by since Ben turns 6 on Thursday! 


Linking up with Biana for Weekending.

  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:)
