Best Kind of Weekend

I had one of those weekends where we had nothing major on the calendar and that felt wonderful. I was able to accomplish a lot and now I am ready to start my shortened holiday week.

I opened up a bag of Food Should Taste Good Sweet Potato chips yesterday and found them to be delicious.

Using Penzey's Natural High Fat Cocoa powder, I made some stovetop hot chocolate and it was so good!

I have been on the hunt for new jeans for over a month now and I finally found some, thanks to a tip from a co-worker. I got them at Talbots, which is a store I normally never go into. The best part was that they were only $33!

On Saturday night, we went to two 24 hour Wal-marts to seek out a WiiU, which was being released at midnight on Sunday morning. One Wal-mart already had a line and people had claimed the unit Craig wanted, so it was off to another store, where Craig ended up being first in line. He waited for two hours and I shopped for groceries. It is strange shopping that late at night, when workers are more concentrated on stocking the store and there are palettes in your way everywhere you turn.

Oh and that guy in the bright green shirt next to Craig is Danny Gokey's brother-in-law. We got to see an exclusive video of Danny.

CBS Sunday Morning featured their food issue today. I was thrilled to see a story on Chobani's SoHo concept. Doesn't this combination sound delicious? They said it is one of their most popular combinations. So many stories in the issue were wonderful and I encourage you to check out their archived videos online.

I started reading Bob Harper's The Skinny Rules. I really like it so far. I wish the title didn't have skinny in it, but I understand that it's a marketing trick to attract people to it.

I finished my weekend by getting lowlights in my hair. The rest of the evening, I will be testing out an acorn squash recipe for Thanksgiving! Enjoy the rest of your Sunday night!


  1. I really like it when people share tips on things they love. I searched for the past couple of years for decent fitting jeans, and finally found a style I like.

    My mom recently bought the same jeans, and called me today to tell me that she loves them :) Kohl's is hit-or-miss with clothes, so I'm still surprised that my new favorite jeans are from Kohl's.

  2. Eddie Bauer makes Curvy Jeans that are really nice! I scored some for $16 at an outlet mall.
