Yes, this post is mostly about food. Food and what happened this week.
First, if it weren’t for my sweet friend Lindsey, I would have never known that there was a new copy-cat Swig so close to home. Their sugar cookies are A MAZ ING.
And because there wasn’t enough going against me with the FIIZ, Easter showed up at all the local grocery stores. Could it be any more obvious? Reeses Eggs are the devil.
Since I was busy eating sugar cookies and Reeses Eggs all week, I had to combat it somehow. So I ran multiple times outside this week because the weather was so nice. I got all geared up and went outside looking like a human traffic cone. I was running by our little neighborhood park and I heard a little boy ask his mom, “Mom, is that a space man?” As soon as Zach got home form work I told him all about it. He agreed with the little boy that I did look pretty ‘futuristic’ but I didn’t care what either of them thought. My new Nike jacket purchase was worth it. I am definitely not going to get hit by any automobiles.
I also went to lunch at From Scratch…AGAIN. My friends came along with me and have all been converted. Their pizzas are to DIE for.
Thursday I took a little road trip down south to hang out with these darling girls [and their mommas]. We met Mary’s daughter Keila for the first time and she is just the sweetest thing. Not to mention all that gorgeous dark hair!
We ate lunch and chatted for a few hours. It was so fun to catch up with all of them!
Along with sunny days and Easter candy…comes wedding season. I am in the midst of 6 weddings currently, and although I am a crazy person, I really LOVE to create wedding invitations. I’m working on my first hand painted wedding invitation. The invitation and the menus went pretty well, but the escort cards were a little more…involved. Not pictured below are lots, lots, more of them.
Friday Zach and I had a very romantic double date. With the two of us and House of Cards. After a meal out for pasta we enjoyed Season 2 from the comfort of our own room.
Saturday we went for sushi and a movie. We shopped around the Gateway for a bit, including an impromptu visit in a new soda and candy shop. They had every kind of candy imaginable…and unicorn heads.
We went to see 3 Days to Kill – with Kevin Costner. We walked out 3/4 of the way through. I adore Kevin (not sure if Zach does, but he made me watch that baseball movie he was in like 50 times because Classic’s helicopter is in it) but this was not his finest film.
Nothing really special happened Sunday, but I did break out my most recent clearance find:
8 dolla necklace. Pays to dig through the rejects some time.
8 dollar necklaces and NASCAR. That was the finale of our weekend!
