this weekend, I...

Hi, everyone!  Linking up with Sarah and Syndal for another round of...
This weekend, I went to a belated Valentine's dinner with Tony at Tanglewood Grill in Gig Harbor.  Neither of us had ever been there, and it has pretty good reviews so we wanted to check it out.  I really loved the front doors.


The food was good (anyplace that serves mac & cheese as a side is a winner in my book!), and we even sprung for dessert.  As soon as we saw "house-made cheesecake in a mason jar" on the dessert menu, we had to order it.  Mainly out of curiosity! Sure enough, it really was in a mason jar.  So pretty!


This weekend, I went to my younger sister's 29th birthday party.  And I gotta say, the fact that the "baby" of the family just turned 29 doesn't exactly make me feel young!  My sister went all out and made tons of food, jell-o shots, and even spodie (aka jungle juice for all you east coasters).  It was a fun time!  I love how her friend totally photobombed us.


This weekend, I slept in on Sunday, went out to breakfast with Tony, and then took a super long nap after we got home.  Lazy?  Perhaps.  Amazing?  Definitely!!

This weekend, I had Chloe design her creature for the Create My Creature giveaway that I won last week, and I love what she came up with!  Kids are so darn creative.  You can ignore all the my notes, those just help Amanda "bring the creature to life".  I am so excited to see what she comes up with!


So, what kind of shenanigans did you get into over the weekend?  Hilarious stories encouraged.

  3. I like you LOVE when places offer Mac and Cheese as a side dish. I'm not sure if you have them where you're from, but here we have Longhorn Steakhouse, and they have the world's most delicious, make-you-gain-10-pounds Mac and Cheese. YUM.
    This weekend I cleaned out my chicken coop--definitely not as exciting a week as you had!

    1. Is there anything better than mac & cheese?? I don't even care if it's Kraft!! I don't think we have Longhorn around here, at least not that I've heard of. Cleaning the chicken coop, sounds epic!
