      He felt a lot better Sunday! Not sure what it was, but it came up very fast (aka had to pull over the side of the road) and actually my brother got it last night while eating dinner. I didn’t even hear of a flu going around!

  3. Fun weekend to me! In lexington they have a local grocery store, trader joes, kroger, and a whole foods, I am soooo excited! I am sure no one noticed you wore the same clothes….until now haha! Cookies look yuuuummmyyy!

  4. Looks like a pretty awesome weekend! I wear the same 5 outfits to the gym pretty much every week so it’s fine.

    Kudos to Aaron, those flowers are gorgeous!

      Haha I just can’t remember what I wear and when! When I do the wash, those clothes end up on top and get grabbed first 😉

  5. Free samples at grocery stores are seriously the highlight of grocery shopping. EMBARRASSING. Glad you were able to go out on the boat this weekend–we had great weather!

      The weather was great! Even though they call for rain all the time and then it doesn’t, lol. Not embarrassing.. I call it thrifty 😉

  6. That looks like a serious weekend! I’m a huge fan of warehouse clubs, especially for parties and holidays. We made a Sam’s run Friday for my weekend birthday party. Plus some of the toiletries prices you just can’t beat!

  8. Aw Benny is so cute :). And I love how you can take me outside with you and him not run off! I love wandering Costco, it’s just too fun and there is just way too many things! Well my boyfriend left on Saturday, not too happy about that haha but he’ll be back this coming weekend since he forgot some things, and I someone managed to find myself buying more swim suits hahaha they were 40% off and I couldn’t help myself. When I find something that fits perfectly, I kind of get a little out of control with buying. But hey, I’m catching up to you now, I now have 3 swim suits 😉

      He definitely gets yelled at when he jumps down! haha he has learned that he can stay on the swing 😉 Bathing suits are awesome! I saw your Instagram and they are adorable!

  9. We love Costco and absolutely love their samples too! 🙂

  10. Iced Coffee my absolute fave. My mom loves bulk shopping because of all the samples… she’s so excited when I go with her and share! Looks like such a nice weekend. 🙂

  11. Can you post (or email me) the recipe of those cookies?? Thanks!
    P.S. Glad you had a great weekend!

    • Fit N Cookies says:

      It’s funny those are my ultimate go to recipe and haven’t been shared! I will have to get pictures taken and then get the recipe up!

      • Great! Can’t wait to see it! I always love see other’s CC recipes so that I can “tweak” my own to make them “just right!”

  12. One serving of Goldfish is most definitely too small!! I probably eat 3 to 4 times the “serving size!” They are just so darn addicting.

  13. So they say “A picture is worth 1000 words”!
    Can Mr. Benson get any cuter? I am sure he poses for the photos! Haha.
    Favorite Iced beverage..definitely iced tea or juice..

  14. I chose Costco over Sams or BJs because of the quality of their samples. No shame…

    • Fit N Cookies says:

      The samples are UNREAL! I actually left and wasn’t even hungry because I ate like everything in the store, haha

  15. Beautiful flowers! And that looks like such a busy weekend! Mine was very relaxing in comparison. We headed in to town to spend some of the vouchers we were given for our wedding and grabbed dinner. That was it!
