This weekend was just what I needed. Although college is fantastic and I love my friends and most of my classes (that’s right, I’m talkin’ bout you chemistry), it can be very draining and fast paced. The life of a science major isn’t always the easiest! Luckily, I was able to take the weekend to head back home for some relaxation. It was filled with exactly what I needed: family, cooking, shopping, and my kitty.
As soon as I got back, I zoned in on these beauties and was in absolute heaven:
I had a killer time flipping through what seemed like endless amounts of recipes. I tend to hoard them and am excited to add more to my collection ;).
Saturday was date night with Kyle. Since he lives less than 10 minutes away from me, he’s always game to car pool back and spend some time at home.
Outfit of the Day:
A simple blue dress from Forever 21 ($14!!) paired with a gold leaf necklace and my all time favorite pair of gladiator shoes. The dress has a cut out back and is ridiculously comfortable
We chose to get some Thai food at a nearby restaurant that we love. Since we both love trying as many new things as possible (we’re good eaters!), we split three dishes and a Thai iced tea.
After dinner we headed over to Hoff’s Hut to pick up some cheesecakes for Mother’s Day. Kyle was so sweet and insisted on getting a strawberry topped one for my family to share! He also did a wonderful job at nailing the tricky parking spot we tried to get in!
Then it was off to Kyle’s house to grab his family to go see Oblivion. I thought it was interesting, but it got pretty confusing and hard to follow at times. It was also super long so my booty way definitely feeling the strain!
By the time I got home it was almost 12 and I was about ready to pass out. I slept like a baby and felt totally refreshed and ready to get my cook on for Mother’s Day! There will be lots of fresh, healthy, and delicious recipes coming soon, so stay tuned :).
I wish I could stay a couple of extra days, but I have to be up bright and early tomorrow to get in a morning workout and head to class!
