Weekend in Pictures.

Friday
1. Dinner date at Casablanca with my best friend, Fallon. {Thanks for recommending it, Kelly!}
2. We got their "small mezza" appetizer. It had hummus, baba gonoush, & falafals. It was all so good!
3. I got their Couscous Chicken entree. It was amazing! I can't wait to go back & order it again!
4. The restaurant is right beside Whole Foods. :) I stocked up on almond milk :)

Saturday
5. Ran my first 5k! I was SO proud of our time! I'll tell you ALL about it tomorrow :)
6. After the race I caught up on Gossip Girl, while icing my knee. Very juicy episodes!
7. That night we had a lovely little date night at home. I made chicken quesadillas for dinner. YUM!
8&9. After dinner we each chose a movie to watch on Netflix. He picked True Grit & I chose Return To Me.

Sunday
10. After a great church service, we had a yummy lunch at Genghis Grill!
11. Meal planning & grocery list making with the help of Pinterest :)
12. Afternoon snack: peanut butter + banana + granola. All toasted up on a pita. + a cup of coffee!
13. I put on some Juicy Couture perfume that I got in my January Birchbox. My husband LOVED it! 
He has told me about 100 times how amazing I smell! I may need to get the full bottle! haha
14. Homemade pizza for dinner. Super tasty :)

We will be spending the rest of the evening watching television & being lazy. :)
{& I'm hoping War Horse wins LOTS of Oscars tonight!}

Hope y'all had a great weekend :)

Congrats on your first 5k! :) I've been debating on whether or not to start using Birchbox. I just can't decide because I've gotten mixed reviews. So I have to ask, are you happy with it? Looks like you had a great weekend! :)

Allison said...

Loved the recap! Looks like you had a wonderful weekend! Do you make your own crust for the homemade pizza or pre-made?! I love pizza and want to start making it for us!

Kristen Danielle said...

Gosh, you're SO healthy. Makin' me feel guilty for eating that cheeseburger for dinner :/ Lol

Can't wait to read about your 5k! I did my 10k this weekend in an hour and 14 minutes. Lol. Not very good... but I did it! :)

Hey, question... what program do you use to edit your photos? I use picnik, but since they're closing April 19th... I'm on the lookout for another editing website!!

Thanks girl!

Aw congrats on the 5k! I did my first last summer. It is so fun right??? I have been wanting to try almond milk. What is your opinion of it? I am an avid silk drinker, but haven't tried the almond yet!
