My Weekend in Pictures 10/24-10/26


I was originally supposed to be out of the state this weekend, however, that did not happen, so I spent my weekend relaxing around Raleigh.  Here are some tidbits from my weekend.

Gabi attempting to be friendly with her new roommate, Luna.  And by friendly, I mean, she sat close to her for approximately 5 minutes.

The beautiful sunrise on Friday morning.  I love waking up early on days off to enjoy the whole day…even if I do take a mid-afternoon nap!

I baked a pumpkin pie, because you just have to at least once in the month of October!

The ever popular ferris wheel, at the State Fair of course.

A quick stop at my boyfriend’s office, on SAS Campus.  This sculpture is right outside of his building.

Ending my Sunday night with pumpkin spice coffee and a pumpkin donut from Dunkin’ Donuts while burning the last bit of soy wax from my P.F. Candle Co. candle.

I hope everyone has a great last week of October…can you believe it’s almost November?!

My Weekend in Pictures, 7/4-7/6

So, this is a somewhat sad compilation of photos from my weekend, however, I thought I’d update everyone on my life because I can. 🙂

The sky was being patriotic.

I made bruschetta burgers for the Fourth of July and paired it with some blue corn chips and creamy spinach dip for a red, white, and blue themed dinner.  My burger recipe will be up sometime in the near future is up now, so go check it out!

On Saturday, we went to the NC Farmer’s Market and I had some fried shrimp from the N.C. Seafood Restaurant for lunch.  I miss having seafood whenever I want it.

2014-07-06 18.35.02 After the farmers market, we went to the flea market, where I bought Gabi a treat from the Bone Appetit Bakery.  She loved it!  I also got myself some Chocolate Pecan fudge, but you better believe I devoured that!  Actually, I just lied.  I didn’t…I still have a quarter of the bar left, I just never took a photo of it.

We also went Geocaching!

Sunday, I spent the majority of my day in the kitchen.  I cut up my watermelon, tried my hand at making French macarons (which turned out very well!!), and made, um, I guess I’ll call it ‘watermelon water.’

I hope everyone had an awesome Independence Day weekend, and I hope you have an equally awesome work week this week.

Stay tuned for my bruschetta burger recipe and my successful macaron attempt and recipe later this week!
