Weekend Recap.

Friday was a rainy, dreary day.  I had a nice lunch with my friend Katie and a new girl in our Bible Fellowship class, Rachel.  I had plans after lunch to go to the library and then a movie with Donny.  But after I stopped by the house to pick up books to return, I just couldn't make myself go back out in the pouring rain.  So we stayed in and watched some recorded episodes of Fixer Upper.  I just want to hang out with Chip and Joanna Gaines!  They seem like such fun people, and we both love their show.

Saturday, I had another lunch date, this time with my long-time friends April and Jen.  It had been FAR too long since we've hung out!  Last time we were together, we were celebrating April's engagement.  So this weekend after lunch, we decided to go wedding dress shopping!  She found several that she really liked, including this one what was just gorgeous.  I can't wait for her wedding in November.

Saturday evening, Donny and I went to see Foxcatcher.  I was very excited to see it, but I was so disappointed by it.  Steve Carrell was truly fantastic.  But the movie was weird and actually quite dull until the very end.  I think they were trying to build up gradually to the end, but it just ended up being flat to me.  Donny wasn't a fan either.  

After lunch at my grandmother's house yesterday, I spent the afternoon in the kitchen making some things for this week.  I absolutely MUST have lunches made and ready to grab before I leave the house in the morning, or I'm subject to grab some chick-fil-a or go out with the girls.  So, I made my favorite egg drop soup, some egg foo young, and paleo mayo to make some chicken salad.  Now I'm fully prepared for the week!

What I didn't do this weekend was read.  I haven't been in the mood to pick up a book all week-- I think I've only read 50 pages or so since last weekend.  I hope I'll be anxious to pick up a book soon because my stack of library books is growing!


  1. I love, Love, LOVE that show! Fixer Upper. I want to buy a house in Waco just so they can redo it! I spent a lot of time watching Flea Market Finds and put a message on one of my 3 Facebook accounts that I totally want to go on that show! You and Donny could do it...Donny is so skilled with that saw!

  2. I really want to try out that Egg Foo Young recipe. My desire to read definitley comes in spurts. Luckily I cant seem to read enough lately. Trying to take advantage of it whike it lasts. :)

  3. That dress is stunning on your friend!! I love it!
    I love Fixer Upper and agree with you completely--they seem so fun and nice!

  4. ugh- SO GLAD to hear you say that about Foxcatcher. I thought Steve Carrel was good (albeit his affect bothered me, even if it was really accurate) but the whole movie was so strangely done. It's an interesting story and I just feel like they tried too hard to be arty. That whole helicopter scene where he was repeating his titles went on so long. I have never come so close to walking out of a movie.

  5. I haven't seen any movies that are nominated. I'm so behind!!! But no time/money to see them all at this point. I just want to see American Sniper!

  6. Mmm I may have to try that egg drop soup!!
