Have a great weekend {plus a recipe!}

Oh my goodness, it's Friday. Did you realize that? (If you didn't, you're welcome) On top of that, it's the last day of the month. Bye, bye September!

I think I did the month justice...

For one thing I kept up with my Project 365 posts the entire month. Which is quite a feat.

I hosted a super fun Kate Spade giveaway (which you can still enter until the end of today!) in celebration of my blog's 1 year anniversary ♥

And I baked the most amazing, sweet, colorful pie ever. (Which I can cross off my 2011 To-Do List)

from Culinary Concoctions

Peanut Butter Sweetie Pie
1 recipe pie crust (that will fit one 9-inch pie)
1 cup granulated Sugar
¾ cup all-purpose flour
3 TBSP peanut butter (creamy or chunky)
½ cup unsalted butter, melted
2 large eggs, beaten
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup Peanut Butter M&M’s
2/3 cup milk chocolate morsels

1. Preheat oven to 350°.

2.On a lightly floured surface, roll pie crust to ¼ -inch thickness.
Transfer and press into a 9-inch pie plate.

3. In a medium bowl, combine sugar, flour, peanut butter, and butter, mixing well.

4. Add eggs, vanilla, Peanut Butter M&M’s, and chocolate morsels. T
ransfer filling to prepared pie crust.

5. Bake until firm in the middle, approximately 45 minutes.


Some things I didn't do well...

I didn't read my 2 books this month. I only read half of one book. But I'm going to try to finish it!

I didn't lose as much weight as I wanted on the Slow-Carb diet, but I'm still losing (just at a slower pace) and I realize should be proud of that.

I also shopped a LOT. But I got some cute things I hope to show you guys soon! My favorite purchase may have been this dress.... from AX Paris:


This weekend... 

I'm looking forward to the Southwest Classic at Cowboys Stadium. It'll be Texas A&M vs. Arkansas. It's the first game we'll play against one of our future SEC conference teams (since we officially got the invitation to move!). So it'll be fun to see how we hold up! We had a lot of fun last year at it ♥



{Happy Friday!}
What do you have planned for the weekend?
