Weekend Things

Well, it’s a three day work week, our office is busy and a majority of us were here by 7 AM, so I’d say it’s crunch time.  And by that, I mean I’m leaving you with a short and sweet post about this weekend.  Which was a blissfully relaxed and not-so-busy one.  Believe me, these types of weekends are much appreciated before Christmas festivities kick into high gear.

I think I mentioned Friday 🙂


Saturday started with homemade Peppermint Mochas.  I am so into making simple syrups lately so when I saw this recipe that involved using real mint, I was sold.  I also declared this the best Peppermint Mocha I’d ever had.  Spontaneous pampering by way of a manicure at Base Coat followed.



We were maybe gonna go out to dinner Saturday night but ended up staying in, so we grilled up some steak, made these sweet potatoes (that I LOVED) and roasted some shredded Brussels.  Feasting like royalty in our sweats, ya know?  The Cowboys played that night so I wrapped presents instead.  My wrapping paper came like that?!?!


Sunday morning sustenance at Stowaway Coffee + Kitchen.  It just opened last week and I definitely think there’s room for improvement but hey, there was hot coffee and really good tomato chutney so I won’t complain too much 🙂  Afterwards, I finished up some last minute Christmas shopping.  The mall the weekend before Christmas?  Never again!  We ended Sunday with a family get together.  Tis the season!

What did you do this weekend?

Are you finished with your holiday shopping?

Do you enjoy wrapping presents? (My back does NOT)

  1. I made the mistake of going to the mall on Saturday- after 1 store I declared it not worth it and left. I still have a few small things left to buy, I can’t believe it’s this week already!
    OMG on the wrapping paper!

  2. YES to peppermint mochas!! I’ve been making homemade white chocolate peppermint mochas like crazy lately. Like two a day….it’s getting a bit bad…haha
