Weekend In Six Pics

Hello!!! I hope you had a great weekend. Well, last Thursday at 7:21PM, I was already in bed feeling extremely exhausted. Tonight (Sunday night), it's 7:37PM and I feel so much better! I needed to relax and the one place I knew I could do that was home sweet home (i.e. my parents lovely home). So I packed up and jetted to Alabama on Friday. To say my time there was fabulous would be an understatement. Here are a few highlights....

Is anyone having a hard time finding the new Domino mag? I went to 4 places in Atlanta and ended up finding it at a Barnes & Noble in Alabama. The mag is full of great ideas, so the hunt was well worth it!

My mom and I had a lunch, movie and shopping date on Friday. She bought me this cute plaid top and I tried the partially untucked thing. I think I like it! Have you tried it? I also ordered these Zara beauties. I am hoping they fit well...

On Saturday morning (after 9 blissful hours of sleep), I got up and made a grocery list for our family dinner on Saturday night. I made pasta with steamed mussels- an Ina Garten recipe. My family ate it all, so I think they liked it... Cooking for them makes me so happy. 

So, I made a chocolate cake on Saturday. In a coffee mug. In the microwave. It cooked in less than 60 seconds. AND it tastes really good! You know I will give you the details tomorrow! Oh and I had that grilled chicken salad earlier last week. It tasted so much better with the cupcake on the side.

Lots of food was involved over the last few days. I know. :)

I hope your weekend was great and that your week is off to a good start!

  1. You know I can't wait for that cake in a cup recipe! Yum! You got the Zara sandals!!! You'll have to tell me how they fit. I have a wide foot and I'm afraid they wouldn't fit well, but I love them soooo much!

  2. I'm a BIG fan of the partially untucked thing! It's 'undone chic.' :) Can't wait to see this cake in the coffee mug recipe! Have a great week.


  3. IF you paid the retail price of $10.95 for the Domino 'pop up' magazine you apparently got a deal. There's one selling for $50 on eBay, and another with bidding currently at $19.00. It'll be interesting to see what the final price ends at in 11 hours.

    p.s. I want that CUTE "cup" cake cake recipe too. I'll have mine, mit schlag (whipped cream)

  4. You are killing me with those mussels. A preggo no- no, but ohmygoodness those are my fav. And look amazing. We will have to have a date and you can cook them for me in October! : )

  5. I've been wanting to try the cake in a mug for a LONG time! Can't wait to see your post tomorrow! :)

  6. Beautiful 6 pics! I didn't know Domino is back again. I will have to go on the hunt! Your mussels look sooooooo great as well as that salad AND yummy cake in a mug. Haven't tried that one yet but I am always curious. I'll have to give it a try. Looks like the perfect visit. ( :

  7. In a cup? in the microwave? I have a feeling this recipe is going to be dangerously good ;)

  8. Looks like you have been having a great time! I love the look of that mussels dish....yum!!! Maybe its a good thing I don't live closer, I would be over at your house all the time taste testing:)

  9. Looks like a great relaxing weekend, a bit of being taken care of and some other fun stuff thrown in the mix!
