Weekend Recap!

It's Tuesday!
So I have a laid back weekend recap for you!

It was sunny and warm on Saturday!
Sunglasses were needed!

Friday was our typical wine and Genghis with a movie night!
Ummm...Straw Dogs...don't even bother watching it!!
Of course we drank the wine that came in the mail from our wine club!

Oh Yeah...and can't forget about dessert from our fav dessert boutique!

Red Velvet Cake

Tres Leches

I played a lot with the new camera! And became a little more familiar with it! Think I'm getting the hang of it!

E got a buzz cut so I made him do a little photo shoot to show off his new buzz and his beard hee hee!

Saturday I drove ALL OVER TOWN! I am on the hunt for a HUGE dark brown SHAGGY square rug! I had NO luck finding this rug Saturday. I was super sad. Everyone had the cream/beige color but not dark brown.

Guess I will need to look online. Does anyone have any suggestions of where to find a rug like this WITHOUT PAYING A FORTUNE? It's for the living need much bigger than a 5" x 7".

Then after we watched the Texans play...we headed over to Papasitos for some Mexican food!

Woke up Sunday morning and made these waffles!!

AND we took down all of our Christmas decor!
Chloe was sad all of her the stockings were gone!

But seriously...I need help with the rug situation!!
I haven't looked on Pinterest yet...



  1. Oh, the red velvet cake. My favorite too. I ate too much of it at Christmas. Looks like you had a wonderful weekend!

  2. That dessert looks delish!!! Glad you had a great weekend! =)

  3. OMG I was totally not hungry until I say the Red Velvet cake! I so need to find that dessert boutique haha.

  4. You look mad in the first one should look made in cute sunglasses!
    That red velvet looks ahmazing and I want it!
    What a good man to indulge you and let you have an impromptu photo shoot!
    Looks like your Texans are heading my way next weekend....go Ravens :)

  5. Red Velvet cake and Tres Leches are my weakness!

  6. I adore Red Velvet Cake! If you ever make it to NYC, they have the most delish slices at Grand Central Station.

    Sounds like you had a relaxing weekend. Maybe try houzz for the rug?


  7. Looks like a great weekend!

    Have you tried Ikea for that rug??

  8. I agree straw dogs was a waste! I love that your man was willing to let you take a photo shoot of him!

  9. That redvelvet cake looks like heaven

  10. Looks like a very fun weekend! :) As for the rug... I really have no idea where to find one! I've seen really nice rugs at Hobby Lobby. Do you have those around you? Good luck, dearie! <3

  12. Red Velvet is my fave.
    Strawdogs.. for real.. disgusting. Shawn said I would love it.. her forgot to tell me about the pathetic 5 minute long rape scene! I was like WTF you thought I would enjoy this?! When all I really wanted to do was vomit..

  13. what a nice weekend. Red velvet and wine... my kinda time. xo

  14. Do you guys have Costco? We got our rug there and they had dark chocolate brown ones too. 2 different sizes and areally good price. PS. Wine and red velvet is the perfect combo!!

  15. Umm, wine club!?? I need to find me one of these....

    On another note, red velvet is my fav! Haven't had it in forever (and prob won't until after the wedding... sigh).

    Looks like you had a great weekend :)

  16. What a fun weekend! I can't help you on the rug thing, I have no idea where to find one. lol

  17. All of the food and sweets look so yummy!! I can't wait to read more of your blog!

  18. Isn't that the movie that Justin Timberlake is in? I heard it wasn't that great.

    All of that food looks amazing!!!

    Online will probably help alot with the rug....Target, Amazon, Ikea, places like that. Do you guys have a Home Goods out there? BEST STORE EVER.

  19. Hey girl! Just saw ya on Hollys blog! Im engaged too! And i live near you. I live in Denton. Small world:)

  20. I hated that movie!! Eeek....

    That wine looks tasty though! :)

    My decorations are still up....yikes.
