A few things


Happy Monday friends (if that is possible).

I am so happy to be a part of the Young Married Bloggers network and one of my posts was featured this weekend. Check it out here :-)


We had a great weekend! Jon traveled all last week and I missed the crap out of him. I know Ernie is also glad to have his daddy back to hang with him during the day. 

Jon and I did date night on Friday night and found this awesome little Mexican place right by our house (we could have walked but were too lazy). We LOVE hole in the wall/divey type places and this one was a gem. The only drawback was me putting sugar all over my rice and beans...I was wondering why the salt shaker was so large?? I would say 75% of the time Jon and I go out for a meal, one of us gets to order for the other and surprise. We always share our meals anyway and it makes it fun. He knows what I like, I know what he likes and it keeps it interesting! I am kind of indecisive, especially when there are a thousand things on a menu, so I like when Jon chooses.

Jon took some pics of me and Chunkles before we went out




I wish Ernie could fit into my purse, I would take him everywhere with me.


Saturday afternoon our friend Kevin came in town from Dallas and is staying for a few days. We always joke with him that we are looking for the perfect guest room for him as we house hunt...we love his visits. We spent the afternoon at the park downtown and Ernie had a blast with the other pups and the guys threw the football.

The guys went to a show downtown and I had a date with these two...

I can't put the book down, it is SO good. Jon is going to read it next, then maybe I will do a book review.  

Sunday morning we made these amazing protein pancakes...3 ingredients...muscle milk, cottage cheese and egg whites. SO good!


Went to church...

Watched some football...


Had some friends over for dinner and fun...


& stayed up late last night playing Rockband.


Oh and I posted 2 recipes this weekend on my blog (kind of an accident)





Anyone know why the collage feature is gone in Picnik? I know they are shutting down but why can't I make collages anymore? Are their other good sites to make similar collages?

so glad you started to read the Tim Tebow book. I couldn't put it down once I picked it up. I really like the idea of the book review.

I use Picasa's collage feature :-)

Wow your weekend looked awesome! I'm so jealous. Hehe

I will total,y buy that book now....

No more collages? I noticed that last week, and when I registered for free then I saw collages again. Try that :-) but yes I'm sad picnik will be gone, good thing I already have a g plus.
