Weekend Shmeekend

This weekend was a good one. 
And I have quite a bit of pictures to prove it, so I will just go ahead and start without some long, over spoken introduction like usual.
You're welcome!

Two weekends ago, Garrett and I went to the Cherry Creek Farmers Market. It was awesome! This weekend I went by myself, which was a little less awesome, but still fun. 

This is what we left with 2 weekends ago.
A loaf of lemon pound cake, fire roasted jalepenos, a small chocolate pecan pie, and a loaf of bread. All homemade, all delicious!

Look how pretty these little booths were!

This weekend I left with homemade tortillas and I bought a red velvet doughnut to eat while there. It was AMAZING!

After G got done with work we went to the mall where I finally got to shop around a bit. There is a new H&M in this mall = EXCITING! 

We had fun in Urban Outfitters.

Are these not the cutest thing you have ever seen? And the most random?

Saturday night, Garrett and I had dinner at The Cherry Cricket which is a burger joint/pretty much anything you want restaurant with a cool outdoor atmosphere. The weather was to die for. I had a burger with peanut butter on it. Before you make the disgusted face, give it a try. It's yummy!

Welp, folks...that was our weekend. Nothing too exciting but a great one at that. 
Sunday we just watched football all day. I'm playing my mother in law in fantasy football and I'm kicking her butt! (Hi Julie! I love you! : ))

Monday is over and only 4 more days until the weekend. I hope you all have great weeks!!

Sunday Confessions

Hi y'all!: )

For awhile now I have been wanting to link up to Alyx's Sunday Confessions, so today while I was sitting on my couch munching on chips and queso, I finally decided to do it.

Don't judge me. Too much.

1. I am a HUGE Taylor Swift fan. 
I love the girl. I think she is gorgeous, talented, and just adorable. Garrett and I went to her concert last year and it was AWESOME! Read about that wonderful experience here. I even love her new song, We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together, and I can't wait until her new album is out in October. The 22nd to be exact.

2. I have puppy fever.
Living in Denver has made me puppy crazy. Everywhere you go, people have their dogs with them. Garrett and I contacted someone we know who has a new litter of Australian Shepards and have been debating on whether or not to get one for several weeks. What do you think? I found this sweet baby's picture online, this isn't the one we may get, but close.

3. I want a hairless cat. Bad.
Ever since I found out that there was such a thing as a hairless cat, I have wanted one. You can go on and on to me about how ugly they are, but it won't phase me. I have 2 little furballs right now and what I wouldn't give to not have cat hair everywhere!

4. I really hate showering.
Gross I know, but you try having my hair and then see if you ever want to shower! Don't worry, I still shower, but not without complaining for a long time beforehand. I would give my left arm to be one of those girls who can just step out of the shower, air dry their hair, and be good to go. Ok, I won't give my arm, but you get the point.

5. I love TV. Alot.
My favorite shows right now are Dexter, Modern Family, True Blood, It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, and Full House, Yes, Full House. An episode a night of Dexter or Modern Family have kept Garrett and I happy for awhile! : )

There ya go. 
Those are my silly confessions for this week. 

I hope you guys all had a great weekend!

Our Weekend

We didn't do anything spectacular this weekend, but I do have a couple of cute pictures of my cats that were taken this weekend. That's enough for a post right? : )
Basically, we watched alot of Dexter, even more football, and ate at a really yummy burger place.
And took cat pictures.

We ate at a place called Jack and Grill. They have 10oz and 20oz burgers! I got a 10oz and it was almost as big as my head. It was delicious, too!

We had our first fantasy football game this weekend, too. And guess who won her first game?
 I did!! I guess I should throw in there that Garrett won his too. Hopefully we can keep it up.

Harley was my cuddle buddy during the games.

Our weekend was pretty relaxing and uneventful, but sometimes those are the best kind!

I hope you all had great weekends and are making it through the week so far. Tomorrow's already Wednesday!

My Favorite Dessert: Cake Stuff

So, this dessert is the best dessert ever. 
And guess what? 
It has NO chocolate and NO peanut butter.
 Can you even believe that? Especially coming from me?

The only problem is, I have no idea what they are called. I've seem them called Neiman Marcus bars and Gooey Butter Cake and Chess Squares. None of those names stuck in my head, so Garrett and I decided Cake Stuff was what they would be called in our household. As in, "Honey do you want a piece of that Cake Stuff?"

Regardless of their name, or lack thereof, can I just say again how delicious these are? You HAVE to try them! 

What you need:

1 Box Yellow Cake Mix
3 Eggs
8 oz. Cream Cheese, Softened
1/2 Cup Butter, Melted
4 Cups (1Lb.) Powdered Sugar

What to do:

Preheat oven to 300 and spray a 9x13 baking pan with cooking spray.

Mix cake mix, melted butter, and one egg to form a dough. Press evenly into the bottom of the pan. 

Mix powdered sugar, cream cheese, and remaining two eggs until smooth. Pour on top of crust.

Bake at 300 for 40 to 50 minutes until top is golden brown.

I hope everyone has a great weekend! 
This post made me crave some Cake Stuff, I think I'll go have a piece! : )

Labor Day Weekend

Hi blog friends!

I just realized that I only posted TWICE the whole month of August.
Garrett and I have been busy moving and working which, unfortunately, doesn't leave much time for blogging. I've missed it though, and you guys!

This past weekend was the first weekend in what seems like forever that we had time to have fun and do something besides clean/move/organize. 

My best friend Brittany over at Fun with the Fullwoods came to stay with us Wednesday and Thursday night. It was SO good to see her and Tiny! We mainly ate, shopped, and gossiped, which was fine by me. We hit up a candy store too! 

Here are some phone pictures from the week/weekend.

We had dinner at Steubens Thursday night and it was delicious. These are Gravy Fries. 
Fries with brown gravy and mozzarella. YUM!

We dropped Brit off Friday afternoon to spend time with her family in Colorado Springs. I definitely wasn't ready for her to go, it was nice having someone to do my nails with and shop with! Brit I can't wait until your next visit, or mine in your neck of the woods! : )

Sunday, Garrett and I went to A Taste of Colorado. Basically, a ton of restaurants from the Denver area set up stands and you buy tickets to either "taste" or purchase a full meal.

Making my ham and cheese crepe.

My favorite thing there- coconut cream pie!

Sunday night we had drinks with one of Garrett's friends from school and finished the night off with an episode of Dexter. That show is so good!

I hope you are all having a great Labor Day! It feels good to be back to the blog world! : )
