Weekend Update

I had such an amazing weekend. Actually a lot of it involved food, but that's ok because I love to cook & bake on "home days", as Margot calls them.

Friday night I picked up pizza for MK & myself. We each sat on a couch and found an endearing Hallmark movie to watch. By 10pm we were out. Lame? No, awesome! Sometimes I'm so exhausted on a Friday night that I just have to go to bed early.

We all got up on Saturday morning for pumpkin ebelskiver pancakes with pecans inside. Yum. It happens every two months or so that all three of us are home and we have a leisurely breakfast together. Afterwards, I sat on the couch reading and listening to Christmas music. :)

The boyfriend came over and we made this amazing homemade mac & cheese with bacon for an event we had later that night. Ohh it was so good. Then we went to his house and walked for 5 miles in his neighborhood. It was a perfect day for a walk as the trees in Charlotte are gorgeous! That night we went to our church for Operation Christmas Child box night, where you pack up boxes of treats, games and toys to send to kids all over the world. Cait and I made a little box for a baby girl and this is our friend Matt who did a box for a boy.

One of the best parts about the weekend was watching the Gamecock football game Saturday night. Bf went to grad school at USC and is a huge fan. I just knew they were going to win. He was sure they weren't. But I was right!

Sunday was church and then about 5 different friends stopped by later that afternoon to visit or just say hi. I love that! I love when friends come over! I made this cranberry lime muffin cake, thanks to Teaberries and then made a yummy linguine dish. Last night I went over to bf's and guess what we watched... the DUKE game!! Yeah, 'tis the season!

All in all, it was one of the best weekends I've had here this fall. Thanks for reading the play-by-play. Now, have a great week!

Oh, and this is us on the couch because our house is FREEZING!!
