Loverly Weekend

Hello my loves!!!

I must say I had a pretty good weekend.

Joined a great weekend blog hop and found some great new bloggy friends!

Woke up to a great stormy Saturday morning.  I looooove morning storms!  Then,  it was off to a very much needed Zumba class.

Followed by an amazing brunch with my amazing friend Megan.  It was pretty amazing!  FYI - I also had the BEST cafe latte.  Yummm...

Finally got caught up house work.  Have you ever been so behind on laundry that you start finding clothes you forgot you had?!?!  Also, I ended up doing some late spring cleaning, now all my windows are so fresh and so clean.

Finished working/editing a wedding video for husbands cousin.  (Well, almost finished, keep making changes!)

Watched two movies I had been wanting to watch for a while now.


Baked.  Oh yes, I baked.  I made a chocolate cake with, wait for it, Nutella buttercream frosting.  I'm just gonna let that sink in for a minute.  (Recipe to follow soon.)  It was uh-flippin-mazing!  It also meant that I got to use the brand new potholder I made!

Church, yard work and grocery shopping rounded out the weekend.

It wasn't a super exciting weekend, but sometimes being able to get caught up and not rushing around everywhere with a gajillion things to do is just perfect!

P.S.  Don't forget about the Milestone Giveaway!

  6. Every laundry day is like that for me...I tend to leave it way too long obviously. I have to know: is that the actual coffee you had? It looks amazing!
