Why Do Weekends Insist on Flying By...

I mean, seriously. Why? :(

We had a fabulously quick weekend. Luke had to work a half-day Saturday, so Brooklyn and I were bums most of the day. But Luke asked me if I wanted to go see a movie Saturday night (love dating my husband!) and let me pick which movie we saw. Now, before you feel sorry for him, understand that he could have had a say in the movie we watched. I chose What's Your Number. Poor Luke rolled his eyes through most of it, but was a champ nonetheless. Plus, he held my hand through most of the movie, which reminds me of going to the movies in junior high and I LOVED it! Cheese bomber, I know. :)

On Sunday we hopped in the car and drove up to Victoria for a quick visit with my mom, sisters, and Papaw (and since he reads my blog, LOVE YOU PAPAW!!!). We had lunch at Casa Ole, did some shopping, and grabbed some Starbucks before heading back home. Brook went with us and had a great time hanging out at Papaw's house while we shopped. It was a quick trip, but well worth it!

After we got home, Aubrey came over and she and I baked cookies while Luke played video games. I gladly let him zone out of the baking after all the girlie movies and shopping he had to endure this weekend, ha! Baking was awesome because I FINALLY broke out the Kitchenaid mixer we got for the wedding. I tried to re-create some orange zest cookies w/sweet orange glaze that I saw on Pinterest. They were pretty good, but not as fabulous as I thought they be. Maybe they'll taste a little better tomorrow since I'm pretty sugared out this evening!

Hope you all had a relaxing weekend and are better prepared for Monday than I am!


  1. Yay for wonderful weekends! I swear, this is like the BEST time of year, EVERYTHING is magical. How was the movie? I can't decide if I want to see it or not...

  2. Sounds like a fun weekend spent with family! :) Those cookies sure look good!

  3. Your weekend was fabulous! No wonder you didn't want it to end! :)

  4. I don't think I could pay my husband to watch that movie lol but he learned his lesson in letting me pick movies before! Now I have to hang out with my friends to see girly movies! Although he said it was ok for us to invest in buying bridesmaids.. I was shocked! It is pretty hilarious though so of course I said yes!


Let me know your thoughts! I love comments. :)
