Weekend Update: As It Should Be

This weekend was exactly the weekend I've been yearning for. It was simple, but active. I was able to be productive and yet still spend a ton of time resting up & just enjoying life.

I also had a total of four Pumpkin Spiced Lattes (1 hot, 1 iced, & 2 Vias at home) since Friday. So that may be why I'm in such a good mood. PSLs (because I use the abbreviation now :) are seriously making my life 10x's better. Even if it was 90* and I had to get it iced. (Pro tip: get it iced. It's amazing.)

So enough of me promoting Starbucks ♥

Friday night date night was a "stay-at-home" cheese plate and wine sort of night. Perfect, simple. So much fun. And super tasty!

The big highlight of my week was football! The Aggies played their first game against Florida. It was our first game in the SEC. And ESPN's College Game Day was here. It was pretty epic. Except for the loss at the end of the game. But I'm just glossing over that.


I'll focus, instead, on these:

Homemade pretzels. Stuffed with cheese & pepperoni. oh yeah. You read that right. And it only takes about 20 minutes of work. [Recipe here]

Sunday was just as wonderful. A late brunch, and Celeste & Jesse Forever. A-M-A-Z-I-N-G. Beyond words amazing. I was crying walking out of the theater it touched me so much. Have you seen it yet?

How was your weekend?


  1. I have overdosed on pumpkin spice everything lately. I got a living social deal from S-bucks so I've been getting the Trentas! Sounds like a lovely weekend!

  2. How are the iced pumpkin spice lattes? I had 3 hot ones last week but I've never tried the iced before!

  3. Looked like an awesome weekend! :) I had 3 pumpkin coffees myself this weekend...only 1 from Starbucks and 2 from Dunkin Donuts...I just like DD's way more cause it's not so spiced but oh so sweeet, and I'm cheap. HAHA :P

  4. OMG!!! I am having my 4th one too right now as I type this!! Pumpkin Spice Lattes are to die for.. If only we can get starbucks to carry them ALL year long, I would be in heaven!!!!

  5. Those pretzels look delicious! I need to make some now!

  6. Iced PSL is on my to-buy list. Hehe. And those homemade pretzels look good. Yummy!!!

  7. i'll check out c&jf now that you recc'ed it!

  8. OMG those stuffed pretzels look amazeballs! Great finger food for some football :)
