Weekending, my new favorite pastime

Hello there! Happy weekending.

BTW, weekending is my new favorite word. Seriously. It’s catchy and who doesn’t love a good weekend?

I hope y’all are wrapping up a great Sunday… In the meantime, here’s what I was up to!

A Friday evening beach stroll <3

Saturday morning Body Pump… I almost convinced Kyle to join me but he opted for the weight room instead. Next time ;)

Checking out a new-to-me outdoor shopping center that could easily eat up my entire savings in about 2.7 seconds.

A healthy vegetarian dinner by no other than Chef Kyle himself!

Sunday morning beach time. Helloooo, Vitamin D.

And then this. Kyle is off to play tennis with a friend and as he was leaving, he politely requested this triple peanut butter and chocolate goodness of a cookie pie. Who was I to say no?! Plus, it’s by Averie and everything she creates is magical. I think I will need to send it to work with Mr. Kyle so I’m not tempted to eat this for breakfast, lunch and dinner the next few days ;)

Last, but not least. My meal plan for the week! I actually like including this in my weekend recaps… It gives me a place to keep all of my links so I don’t have to email them to myself and/or lose them and forget why I purchased specific ingredients!

What are you making for dinner this week? Did you have any delicious, sugar-laden desserts recently? And one last question, what’s the best thing you did all weekend?


  1. Weekending is the best! I need a free weekend. I’m not sure why my fall weekends are busier than my summer weekends. I’m looking forward to the quietness of winter for some serious movie marathons on Sundays. It’s my favorite. I’m happy you found body PUMP in your new area!

    • Oh man, busy weekends are the death of me. I love being able to do nothing. And yes, that makes me sound so old ;)

  2. Sounds like a great weekend and that peanut butter cookie pie looks so good!! Thanks for posting your meal plan. I just made a spaghetti squash today and I think I need to do a variation on that pad thai with ingredients I have around. Looks delicious!!

  3. Weekending, I love it! best thing this weekend was brunch at my aunts house this morning. My cousin (whose basically my sister) was home from college. I have been dreaming of cookie cake since I saw yours on Instagram. Mmm. I’m off to make that now ;) Dinners this week include tacos, tortilla soup.

  10. That beach…sigh. So jealous!

    I convinced B to go to Pump with me once and his form was so bad, lol! I was trying to correct him the whole time and he was not having it. I didn’t want him to get hurt though, you know? Men…
