Weekend Recap: Valentine's Edition

Happy Monday lovelies!

It was a wonderful weekend! I got to spend lots of quality time with my sweetie, including all day Saturday for Valentine's!

On Friday I brought these Red Velvet Oreo Truffles from Eat, Drink, and Be Mary to work. They were a HUGE hit! Of course I had to sample some myself, and I concur with my coworkers, OM NOM NOM.

Friday night we spent at home, eating yummy steak for dinner and binge-watching our latest show, Eureka. It's extremely campy Sci-Fi, and we love it! We're on the last season though so we're going to have to find a new show to watch soon.

Saturday morning we slept in and then headed out to brunch at Cracker Barrel because we're apparently 80 years old. 

I was loving my new boyfriend jeans from Target with my nude flats (also from Target!)

After stuffing our faces with all kinds of yumminess we went over to the Riverside area of town to look in the antique shops. We stopped for a cup of coffee at a place called Cool Moose Café

Yes, that is a gator head and feet in a turtle shell. The things you find in antique shops...

I was looking for an antique wire basket to put cookbooks in, like this one: 

But I couldn't find one this time. I'm still on the lookout, I really want it as decor for our coffee bar/hutch in the dining room. 

On the way home we stopped by Sonic for Happy Hour drinks! The Vanilla Dr. Pepper was calling my name. 

When we got home these were waiting for me: 

Aren't they beautiful?? White daisies and red alstroemeria, some of my favorite flowers! He did good. 

Sunday was a lazy day as usual, we chilled at home most of the day. I did get to make the blueberry muffins for Adam as his Valentine's treat: 

So I was going to do this ON Valentine's but I wasn't able to figure out how to make the muffins without Adam knowing (plus we had decided to go out for brunch anyway), so I settled for getting him a card and candy and gave that to him on Saturday. Then Sunday morning I was like well I might as well still make him muffins and then just put them in a box with the cute tag. Then I couldn't get to the boxes we had (they were stored) and he came up behind me while I was cutting out the tag, so it was kind of a fail. The struggle is real, y'all. 

But he still enjoyed the muffins! So that's something! Right??

We went to dinner with friends and then I ended the evening eating chocolate chip cookies and watching Downton and Grantchester.
