Weekend Recap

My weekend was almost perfect. Being I have not been home and not working on a weekend in some time I knew that this weekend would be wonderful and fast and that is exactly what it was.
Friday evening I ran some errands and then Kyle and I went to a late movie and saw Gone Girl. I've heard so many people talk about how the book was good and the movie was as well that it made me want to see it. I haven't read the book but I did the think the movie was good as well. A little weird at the end but good. Those of you that have read the book and seen the movie how did you think it compared?
Saturday morning I slept in a little and wlecomed the crisp cool fall weather while lounging around for a bit. I stayed in my yoga pants, made very yummy pecan pancakes and watched the OU/Texas game. BOOMER SOONER!!!!!
Back to the pancakes...I bought this Southern Pecan mix at World Market while I was in Utah last month and my word, so good! I highly suggest my non-Oklahoma friends pick some up to try! (We don't have a World Market in Oklahoma.) I just toasted some pecan pieces to add to mine and mmm they were worth every calorie.
After the football game I whipped up some A-mazing pumpkin dip to take to girl's night Saturday evening. I will be sharing this recipe soon and you will definitely want to try it!
Us girl's got together at my friend Charity's house with all of our yummy snacks. There are eight of us in the group and all but myself and one other friend have kids so this month it was a kids welcomed night. Which I totally didn't mind cause it also meant extra cuddle time with Beckham. This is my friend Megan's baby that is a month old now.
Afterwards Kyle and I went to a local pub for a couple of drinks. I had my first apple cider cocktail of the season, I couldn't help myself!
Sunday turned into an unexpected beauty day after church which was pretty great! Ulta was having an Ulta Thon and you could get a hair cut for ten dollars as well as facials for ten dollars. Umm, sign me up!!! I put together a roast, which turned out so good and I'll share that recipe too soon, then headed straight to Ulta. My hair turned out a little shorter than what I wanted but it probably needed it and the facial was amazing!
I ended the weekend with baking a cake for my boss's birthday...which my husband thought I was super wife when he came home to a roast dinner and a cake on the counter. Oops, don't touch it!
How was your weekend?


  1. Those pancakes and that cake look delicious!! I'm going to have to try that World Market mix out for sure. Thanks for sharing! Baby snuggles are the best. Glad you had a good weekend!

  2. I absolutely love World Market! I must give these pancakes a try. :)

  3. Those pancakes look so good! Beckham is precious!! We don't have kids so I always take any opportunity I can to hold a baby! :)

  4. Ok so that cake has my mouth watering right now!! I think the book and movie were almost identical - there were a few details that were missed in the movie, but it was still really good..and I totally get it - the ending was just that an end...BOO!
