I know, another weekend gone and it was not long enough. One of these weekends I will spend it at home never once leaving my house. This weekend was not that weekend, and April is almost filled with activities. So what did I do with my time…
1. I got a Reward Card from Victoria Secret and it was burning a hole in my pocket. So I ordered a new Maxi Dress. I got free shipping since it was over $50.00 but I basically only had to pay for what shipping would have been, so it was a total score.
2. I headed down to the South Shore to celebrate my Dad’s Birthday. He hates having his picture taken but I did post a birthday post to him here. My niece was so good taking a nap earlier she got two Marshmallows.
3. Unlike the younger one she does not really care to have her picture taken, but she is so adorable.
4. I kinda fell asleep on the couch. I spent the morning cleaning like a fiend so I was a little tired. This was taken just after waking up. Can you tell I was sleeping?
5. We ordered from the Texas Roadhouse for Dinner. I had their critter salad which was so good but I only ate half of it.
6. We had ice cream cake and the little one was enjoying it enough to show me.
7-8. I experimented in the kitchen on Sunday and came up with a PB&J and a Fluffernutter pie. Recipe coming soon.
I spent a lot of time reading on Sunday trying to catch up on the 5 books I got from the library. I also did a lot of cleaning and went grocery shopping. Relaxing but busy.
How was your weekend?

Nice weekend. My grandchildren get marshmallows as treats, too. I love my home and love being home, and after years of being out working, I am home a lot! Home is where my heart is and my dogs!!!
We had superb 50+ weather, so we went to our local vineyard, where we are wine club members and had a free tasting. It’s always fun! Then were able to grill a nice steak. Forever grateful for my wonderful life. Wishing everyone a wonderful week.
Love SMD’s momma!
The littlest one loves them. I think being home especially when dogs are involved is the best place to be!! A wine tasting sounds wonderful! Hope you have an amazing week!
I didn’t find enough time to read this weekend-and I have so many library books to catch up on too!! And OH MAN I miss Texas Road House. We had one in Athens–but I haven’t lived near one since (3 years).
I love when I get to just sit and read for a few hours, but I feel under the gun to read too! Haha! Just the rolls and butter alone are fabulous. Hope you get to one soon, that is way too long! 😉
why are weekends always so short!!! you have like the best hair ever by the way!!
They really should be longer. Thank you so much! I love your hair too. I have good days with mine but today it is in a braid!

I freaking love PB&J. Fluff not so much. But still! I can’t wait to hear more about this pie.
The fluff crystallized more than I would have liked so I preferred the jam.
But why do they call it a critter salad? Now I have to google it.
Haha!! I have no idea but it is basically just crunchy chicken goodness. The rolls and butter are totally worth the calories too!
Can’t wait to hear your recipes! And love your new maxi!
Thank you! Excited to share it! I can’t wait till the Maxi gets delivered, it’s like spring in a box. 🙂

That salad looks delicious and can’t wait for the fluffernutter pie recipe! TWO marshmallows? You’re the best aunt! I went through another weekend with little reading…I think it’s the fact that I can put this book down so I’m sure after I finish it I’ll come across another book I can’t, lol! Thanks for putting me on your sidebar girly!
Their food is always so good. She deserved it with her cuteness! I am overwhelmed with reading right now but I don’t mind it one bit. Love having you on my sidebar!
I can’t wait to see your maxi dress! The pies look SO yummy…excited for the recipes 🙂
The color is the best part! The light blue will really make me feel like it’s spring! Can’t wait to share it!

Kerry when the weather gets warmer, I want to plan a trip up to Boston so bad. I about died when I saw that PB & J on Instagram. I will be 89 years old and a good ole PB & J will be my favorite, especially with the pastry you had it inside. I can’t wait to see this recipe. I still have it on the top of my list to make the pinwheels. You have the most adorable nieces too. Is your family Italian? Are y’all getting more snow this week or will you have temps above freezing for once? Ha.
We really need to make it happen!! They are so cute they make my heart melt! We are Portugese and Irish mostly with a little bit of extras thrown it! 😉 I think on Wed. or Thursday we are supposed to get snow. It is not supposed to get above 34 this whole week!! 🙁 I am determined to get outside though.
YES!!! Lets get a multi-city blogger meet-up!! 🙂
We really need to make it happen!
#1 = winning!! Looks like you had a really nice time with your family and relaxing – which sounds like the perfect weekend!! Happy Monday!
It was so excited for that card. I never get that much off. Total win! It was perfect but very busy.
Mmmm, Texas Roadhouse! I haven’t been there in so long. I get the 6oz. sirloin with a loaded baked potato every time lol.
Haha! I tend to always get the critter salad but their steak and ribs are so good too!
That pie sounds amazing! So excited for the recipe 🙂
Thank you! Hope you like! The jelly was so warm and toasty! 🙂

#1…um major score!!! I had a super busy weekend – and I’m pooped just thinking about it 😉
I don’t usually get such a good reward card but it was so nice. Hope the week is less busy for you!
That PB&J thing? Yeah, I need to try that, STAT! 🙂
Haha! It is a straight blast to the past of my childhood!

OMG that maxi dress!!!! it’s going to look fab on you 🙂 i was so sick all weekend with a high fever and barely conscious. glad that crap is over now.
Thank you! I am so excited to get it, hoping it brings the warmer weather so I can wear it. So sorry you were so sick! Missed you!
I would like some of that food. Yum. And we LOVE Texas Roadhouse. I pig out on the rolls.
They have so many good dishes! I totally cheat on my diet for those rolls! 😉
TX Roadhouse… OMG YUM! Baked tater, ceaser salad, fried pickles and this bread… shit. Shit.
Seriously the best food for a chain restaurant. The bread and butter is the best!
That maxi dress is AMAZING! You’re going to look HOT!
Thank you! I am so excited to get it and you can’t go wrong with a Maxi for Spring!
