My Weekend In 10

Hi! I hope you had a great weekend. Mines was really great. I spent the weekend with my parents. It was my first time seeing them since July. We went to their college football game and spent time relaxing  in their newly renovated home that is amazingly gorgeous. I didn't have time to take photos, but will certainly take some over the holidays. 

Speaking of photos, this post is photo-less. I hope that's ok. It's Sunday night and I am wearing prescription sunnies as I am writing this post. A hot cup of tea is on the nightstand. Migraine. Bedtime is very soon. So I thought I would write a little post about 10 random things I did mixed with some random thoughts I had over the weekend. Hope ya like it...

1. I almost finished The Help over the weekend. My dad asked me to watch the movie with him in his new Man Cave over the holidays. His request warmed my heart. The little things...

2. I woke up to my mom's whole wheat banana pancakes on Saturday morning. They are the BEST! Her secret: applesauce instead of vegetable oil. Try it.

3. There were women walking around in 5 inch heels at the football game on Saturday. Don't ask. I wore these boots by Aerosoles over some black leggings with this sweater by H&M and felt stylish and most importantly, comfortable. Five inch heels... Geez.

4. The most played song on my iPod right now is "Paradise" by Coldplay. I wore it out on the way to my parents house and back home. 

5. I added Ree Drummond's blog, The Pioneer Woman, to my blogroll this weekend. It will be there forever. I spent an hour reading her blog over the weekend and I laughed so hard. She is an amazing cook, writer and mom who couldn't be more honest. She recently flooded her kitchen. I highly recommend you to read that post

6. I just remembered another song that I like. I never thought I would say this, but I like a song called "Christmas Eve" by oh gosh... Justin Bieber. I never thought in a million years that I would like a song by "The Beebs." It will be out on iTunes tomorrow. Can't wait. Can't believe I just said that...

7. My favorite chef, Giada de Laurentiis, is currently hosting a Facebook contest. Make one of her recipes, style it and photograph it. She picks the best photograph. I'll be working on it this weekend...

8. My dishwasher is ready to be unloaded. I wish it would magically unload itself. Oh I wish my suitcase from the weekend would magically unpack itself, too.

9. Why is the time change so late this year?? I am dying for that extra hour of sleep right now...

10. I am so thankful for migraine meds. I am already feeling better. Perhaps blogging made me feel better, too. Maybe there is something to doing what you love...

Happy Monday. And Happy Halloween! I just remembered that I forgot to pick up some candy...

Pin It

    Heels? I have the same reaction when I see people on heels at the airport, is just "what the hell?". Anyway, got to download the latest from Coldplay, they are always on my runs ;)
