I had a very low key, but completely enjoyable weekend. It didn’t seem to fly too fast (though I always want them to be longer!), and was full of my favorite people. I’ve actually taken a few days off from blogging (my posts were written up), and just kind of done my own thing. As much as I love catching up with everyone, it can be draining making sure to comment, and share posts. Well, if I had access to a computer that didn’t block them, it might be easier Anyway, it was a nice break, but I’m ready for a new week!
I started the day with my workout bright and early because I knew I had some errands to run after school. One of the elementary schools I sub for gets done with school at 2:35, so I knew I would have a good bit of time. It felt great to cross off all those to-dos on my list in one trip.
Aaron came home from work and we hung out on the couch for a bit watching Breaking Bad. Side note: We are almost done! Aaron headed out with his friends for the Pen’s game, while I had some therapy with retail at Tanger Outlets.
I really only went into Old Navy because they had deals going on, and I found what I wanted! Look where I happened to stop on the way home, too…
Friday was one of those days that I could never really stay full. I was starving shortly after every meal, and happened to be craving one of these! It was everything I wanted.
After my glorious run in the cold (honestly, I kind of enjoyed it), I got to work being productive! I cleaned our entire house from top to bottom. There is probably no better feeling than a clean house, right? Everywhere I looked there was something, so I tackled it all. On specific area was our closet with our shoes just thrown and piled high. We had these containers that were no longer being used, and they fit our everyday shoes perfectly!
After finishing, I headed to my parent’s to catch up, while Aaron went with my brother to a Beer Tasting. The rest of the day was spent grocery shopping for next week, and making two batches of homemade cinnamon rolls. For some reason, one batch rose very nicely, while the other failed. Making cinnamon rolls is no joke! It took me a while, but I really enjoyed it, so that was all that matters.
I was up bright and early to start my work in the kitchen! While the cinnamon rolls baked, I whipped up a batch of Chocolate chip cookies, and ran to Target for some things I couldn’t find yesterday. I also made my way to Emily’s house (one of my best friends who lives in Florida) for a brunch with her family! I haven’t seen her since my wedding, but she happened to be up for another wedding yesterday. This would be the reason for the cookies and cinnamon rolls It was such a nice time catching up with everyone. Everything was delicious, and beautifully set up!
Once I came home, I went back to the kitchen. I guess this weekend was spent more in there than anywhere? I baked some ham and egg cups (I think they turned out.. time will tell for breakfast tomorrow!), banana protein muffins, and chocolate chip protein bites. You know what I dislike the most about baking? All of the pans. I tried to get Aaron to let me help him in the yard to get out of clean up duty, but he wasn’t having it (and I hate working in the yard).
It ended up to be a beautiful day, so I spent the afternoon catching up on blogging and magazines, with my tea in hand, outside on the back porch. I have no idea how much longer we will be able to just sit out here and relax, so I truly did treasure it.
I should also mention that this weekend was full of Benny. I haven’t shared so many pictures lately (no idea why!), but he’s a stinker. Last week he climbed in the ceiling of our basement and got stuck, he runs around like a mad mad, but he’s the nicest and sweetest boy. I love having him cuddle up with me, and he has had more than his fair share of attention this weekend!
Of course he is sleeping in most pictures because that’s the only time I can take them! Ha If I pull out my phone while playing with him, he attacks it. Soo, yeah, not many pictures of those!
