Happy Weekend

What are you up to this weekend?  I am getting back from spending the past week in Texas for work (first time there and most definitely not my last) and relaxing tonight.  This weekend is going to be one spent with some family friends for a retirement party and reunion and I am so excited to see everyone!  Hope you all have a terrific weekend and here’s some pretty awesome links from around the WWW……

Super-Rocky Road Brownies

I have a major sweet tooth.  I’m not really a big cupcake or cake lover and I have to be in the mood for cookies (say whaaaa?) but I have a serious soft spot in my heart for brownies.  Another soft spot when it comes to sweets for me is icecream (it’s the only thing I craved during my first trimester), specifically Rocky Road ice cream.  Anyone else with me on this? So I figured…

What If…

Where Were You (When the World Stopped Turning) by Alan Jackson on Grooveshark what if instead of thinking of our next response, we stopped and listened. what if we smiled at strangers more instead of thinking about what we need to do this week. what if instead of sending a text we took a minute to make a call. what if instead of getting mad, we took a breath. what if instead of remembering wrong…

Life is a funny thing.  It’s weird to think that those pictures were taken less than five years ago. When I was living footloose and fancy free. My mom used this expression once a few short months ago when she was talking about life before babies and it really stuck. When I graduated college, the only person I was concerned about was myself.  I could go anywhere and be anything I wanted to be and…

Smiling at the Little Things

New routines and all things that make life feel busy and full.  Summer is officially over in fifteen days and it’s already starting to feel like fall in our neck of the woods.  Here’s a few pictures over the last couple weeks that have reminded me how little (and big) things can make my heart smile… ^^ Frisbee golfing with the husband and Jack on work nights. ^^Flowers from sweet friends picked straight from their…

Links I’m Loving

What are your plans for the weekend?  We have a packed weekend with celebrating my grandma’s birthday, a dinner party, and a little Sunday lounging between running errands.  Hope you have a great weekend and here are a few posts from around the web… I know it’s September already (not too mention I haven’t been doing too much alcoholic beverage drinking lately) but this drink looks amazing and I’m definitely bookmarking it for when this…
