Vishnu’s done with nights (for now).  That was by far the biggest highlight of my weekend!  And his next rotation is a lot lighter and more structured than the past few have been.  Woo hoo…looking forward to getting my husband back!

Another highlight was Pinch of Yum’s chocolate chip cookies.  You guys!  These cookies were so easy to make (or better yet not mess up), and they’re soft and gooey and pretty much perfect!

I made them because Vishnu wanted to bring a sweet treat for his senior resident.  And because it was #nationalcookieday on Friday!  All I can say is thank goodness these were for someone else otherwise I would’ve ate the entire batch!

Discovering a cute little mall near our apartment was yet another highlight.  I had two Loft cash cards I needed to use and thought I’d have to make the trek all the way to Tampa.  Luckily that same morning, I received a Loft email that had three different addresses listed at the bottom – one of which was for this mall that I didn’t even know about.  Honestly, I didn’t think this Loft would be all that great, but the store ended up being bigger than most and the selection was amazing (I ended up buying this top and something very similar to this top). 

And final highlight from this past weekend was the NFL game we went to – Tampa Bay Buccaneers vs. Atlanta Falcons.  Vishnu bought our tickets back in May when the Falcons were slated to be fairly decent.  Well, the game wasn’t all that exciting until the 4th quarter.  The Falcons had about a minute and thirty seconds to score a touchdown, and it didn’t look impossible.  But no.  Matt Ryan threw an interception and that was that.  Whomp whomp.  Even though the Falcons lost, it was still a fun experience.  The sun was out, the Bucs fans were entertaining, and I got to spend time with my hubby!

That was my weekend in a high-level nutshell.  Lots of rest and relaxation…a good thing given how hectic this week is going to be.  I fly to London on Saturday and have tons of things I need to do before I leave.  Wish me luck!

What were some of your weekend highlights?

  1. OMG those cookies look insane. I am actually not a big chocolate chip cookie fan (weird, I know) but those look too good to pass up. And so fun you got to go to an NFL game! That’s on my bucket list!
    My whole weekend felt like a highlight. We went to a cabin in the mountains with Tom’s brother and sister-in-law. It was so much fun!

  2. Love the tops you got and how great you found a mall near you! The NFL game sounds fun. We’ve only ever attended one Detroit Lions game, funny enough, against the Falcons! They lost but what else is new with the Lions? LOL. Weekend was great! Celebrated my best friends birthday in Detroit Friday night, and then went to another close friends wedding on Saturday! 🙂
