This weekend I...

This weekend I...celebrated a friend’s birthday. We went out for burgers and drinks (the birthday girl is expecting, so the drinks were more for everyone else). I think we might have scared our significant others a bit with all the high school stories we were telling. I forget sometimes just how much mischief we used to get into together—oh how times have changed!
This weekend I...went to Shop with Cops with Sean. I hadn’t originally planned on going with him (I mean, the kids don’t come to shop with cops’ wives) but they encouraged family to come. So when another of Sean’s buddies was bringing his wife, I decided it’d be fine if I went along, too. It turned out to be a very cool experience. We had 2 young boys for our first trip, and 4 sisters (ages 6-13) for our second. It was fun to see them so excited about finding something special for their family—and being able to pick out a gift for themselves, too.
This weekend I…made these for our annual Christmas party. My mom used to make these when I was little and they were my favorite. I quickly remembered why when I tried them again.  SO. GOOD. If you’re looking for a delicious brownie recipe, seriously give these a shot.

This weekend I…had a great time celebrating the holidays with friends. As usual, we had an abundance of delicious food, and no shortage of great conversation either. And who doesn’t love getting to see this little one?
This weekend I…took full advantage of the snowstorm by using it as my excuse to be L-A-Z-Y. I seriously only left the house once on Sunday, and it was a 10-minute trip to the grocery store 2 blocks away. To make the day even better, Sean did all the snow removal (by choice), he got the night off work, I tried out a delicious new recipe (more on that later), and Sean’s mom, brother, and uncle came over for dinner.

All in all, a pretty good weekend (minus a couple bumps in the road, and the fact that like all weekends—it ended).

What did you do this weekend? Link up with Syndal here!

  2. Hey lady. I saw your comment on Samm's blog (Dysfunctional Ever After) and wanted to bop over and say hey. Sad to see you haven't been blogging lately. Just want you to know that we are going through some similar stuff, and if you ever need to chat I am here.

  3. Hi Kristin! Just hopping around this morning and found your blog! Although it was a while ago, congrats on the weight loss. You looked beautiful before but I'm sure you more happy on the inside! I had a weight loss journey about 5 years ago too from my highest and it's always something to celebrate! Looks like you haven't been on in a while so I hope everything is ok. Feel free to stop by and say hi sometime!
