Weekend(s) Recap!

Hello there! I took a little blog vacation last week. Derek repeatedly asked me this weekend when I was going to blog again, so I thought I should do a little weekends recap! In no certain order, here is what I’ve been up to:

-Hanging out with the neighbors.  Between purse/31 parties, bon fires, listening to live music, and more, we have been spending a lot of time with our neighborhood...and I love it!

-Watching college basketball

-Celebrating Easter

-Meeting Lou...our friends new bulldog puppy!  Seriously, the wrinkles, big paws, and sweet cuddly demeanor get me every time!  Look at this cute face!

-Grabbing pizza and beer with Sarah and her husband

-Participating in a photo shoot for a local company…..more on this crazy adventure later!

-Making blackberry infused water

-I’m completely obsessed with the stuff they sell at Starbucks!  So, I thought I would try to make some myself.

-Enjoying our nice Spring weather.  Seriously, is it just me or does it feel like forever since we have experienced warm weather?!

-Making grocery lists….usually I’m the lucky one that gets to go to the grocery store.  So, I’m not that specific in my lists because I know what we need.  We were all out of ingredients for our favorite energy balls, so I was listing everything: oats, flax seed, peanut butter, etc, etc.  Well, I guess I just listed “coconut” instead of shredded coconut, because Derek went to the grocery for us and this is what he came home with:

-I mean, the list did say coconut, but I asked Derek, what is this (of course I knew what it was, I was just wondering why it was in our house)?  He’s like it’s a coconut…it was on the list.  For some reason, I just cracked up and could not stop laughing.  I’m trying to think of ways to utilize this thing, but right now it’s still sitting on our counter!

-Baking cinnamon sugar banana bread

-Watching The Real Housewives of Orange County.  Is it just me or does it seem like Tamra and Gretchen have turned into mean girls this season?

-And, that is all that I’ve been up to!  Hope you guys had a great weekend(s)!!

Linking up with Sami today!

Haha. i would have no idea what to do with a coconut either. My coconut is usually bought in a can...or in liquid form (coconut rum!) :)

LOVE the coconut.. That is too funny.

Jill J @ Classy with a Kick said...

Ha ha...love the coconut. My husband would do the exact same instead of asking me what I needed an entire coconut for!

I am loving the RHOOC season so far. They are all so crazy, it's just entertaining. Vicki's chin scares me!

Kat@shop.school.sleep. said...

hahaha such a guy thing to do!!! that's awesome...i can see why just "coconut" would mean an actual coconut ;) and RHOC fan here...I'm dying to see the rest of the season because apparently right now Tamara and Vicki are friends again and Gretchen is out again???

Meg {henninglove} said...

ooh blackberry infused water sounds yummy! i just bought blackberries at the store so i need to make this for sure. Lou is absolutely adorable!

dave and jenn said...

LOL... the coconut! I asked Dave to bring home pineapple last weekend (meaning canned) for Jade and me to eat, and he brought home a whole one. Still, it's a lot easier to chop up than a coconut. I wouldn't know where to begin with that!

Jen said...

So I told Rick the story about the coconut and he was like, oh yea that is what I would have bought. Men...what are we going to do with them! I totally need to try that blackberry water. It sounds so refreshing. Oh and that pup is so adorable!!

Joanna @ JayBirds Flight said...

All I can say is I am obsessed with your new family member. So adorable!!

Jamie J said...

I totally am coming home from the store one day with a coconut.. just to see what my fiance says.
PS- I'm new to the blog. It's great!
