Over the Weekend

After the whole Friday craziness, I wasn't up for much on Saturday. It was a lazy day in bed with Netflix. Eventually I got up and made some shrimp pasta with homemade alfredo sauce. I toasted up a slice of Texas Toast garlic bread...ridiculously good. In fact, Will normally eats most of it and I get maybe a plate or two for leftovers. Not thinking, I made a regular sized batch and now I'll be eating it all week. Oh well, it's one of my favorite meals.

Since I was in bed all day I didn't sleep well Saturday night. Rather than waste the day trying to get rest, I got up early and baked cookies for care packages. One for Will and one for Seester. Seester loves peanut butter cookies and Will always tries to steal them when I bake them for her so I thought I'd make a big batch for both of them...but I had a less peanut butter than I thought. I made a half batch of that and a full batch of chocolate chocolate chip pudding cookies (pin I used chocolate pudding instead of vanilla).

Then, my man and I Skyped! It was a terrible connection, but we got a good amount of quality conversation in before it started dropping us.

The rest of the day was spent finishing up the cookies, packing the boxes (non decorated --> Airing My Dirty Laundry!), cleaning up the kitchen some (I'll finish tomorrow), and lazying about on the computer. I was productive enough to feel good about myself without getting a whole lot done. My idea of a good weekend.

I used to have Instagram...but then I deleted it. And now I caved again. Ugh I'm weak, I know. I'm not trying to make a big deal out of it, but check your requests...I may have added you.

    1. They were! I exercised the ultimate self control and only ate one of each. I packed the rest up in the care packages.
