The Weekend I Didn’t Want to End

Hello everyone! How was your weekend? Mine was marvelous, thus not wanting it to end!

Thank you to Katie for hosting and congrats on the little rock star!! 🙂


Friday night, as mentioned included naan pizza and Pitch Perfect. I thought the movie was okay, but not as funny as I expected.


That morning I was up early, and lounged for a bit before getting ready for my friend’s Valentines Day brunch party. It was a celebration of friend love and she did a wonderful job celebrating!!


1. The beautiful dessert bar which included pie on a stick and cupcakes

2. Close up view of pies on a stick – these were amazing!

3. The delicious spread which included egg cups, croissants filled with brie and apple, fruit salad, crab cakes, monkey bread muffins, and much more!

After brunch, I headed to Nordstrom to meet my mom to look at mother of the bride dresses. She looked absolutely stunning, and I loved seeing her all dressed up. She is always taking care of everyone else, and I am thrilled for her to get to be pampered 🙂

We then headed to Loft where I picked up some cute t-shirts and this blazer (I’m obsessed).  Then home to get in a quick run


and eat dinner with the hubs-to-be. We enjoyed crock pot taco chili from SkinnyTaste and got ready for a night out in DC with friends. Got home at 3am and crashed, a fun night indeed 🙂


Slept until 9, and then laid on the couch until 1pm (while meal planning for the week, and eating some banana walnut pancakes). Finally got my rear-end up and went to three grocery stores (!!). I tried shopping for two weeks, Ashley’s post inspired me to give it a go, and it seems like we didn’t spend more than normal. We’ll see what else I need next week to know if I spend more or less. I will say though that I need some staples (TP, plastic baggies) that we don’t regularly purchase. So maybe it did save money!

After grocery shopping, I did a bit of food prepping which included eating homemade salsa and these delicious chips!


It was truly a great weekend mixed with fun and rest, and lots of time with my love (the best part of all)!

QA: How was your weekend and what made it marvelous? What was the best part overall?
