Weekend Recap: Spring Forward Edition

Good monday to you all! First of all I am SO excited that I hit over 100 Bloglovin' followers over the weekend! I want to say a HUGE thank you to all of you who have followed me, and welcome to all of the new readers! I am so very thankful to all of you!

If you're new around these parts and you want to know what I'm all about, check it out here.

Now on to the weekend fun! I thoroughly enjoyed this weekend, as it is the last one for a while where Adam and I will have lots of time at home to relax and enjoy our time together. The rest of this month and into April is jam packed with RC events for Adam, a wedding cupcake job, and getting the house all spruced up for a BBQ party in April!

So we took the opportunity to eat lots of yummy food, sleep late, get some things done around the house, and even got to spend some time outside enjoying the beautiful weather!

On Friday it was rainy and gloomy all day, so I had to grab a Tiramisu Latte on my lunch to power through the day:

Friday night was dinner out and doing some shopping, then relaxing at home with our shows. 

Saturday morning I grabbed Panera for breakfast (for me) and Chick-Fil-A (for Adam) and we watched He-Man (yes, He-Man) on Hulu. Then Adam started working on getting the garage organized, and I went out shopping. I got some things to make a new Spring wreath: 

Then I succumbed to temptation and we had lunch at our favorite burger spot: 

Saturday evening was spent at home, Adam worked on the garage some more and I made my wreath: 

Sunday morning we had brunch at Casa de Strong: 

Banana Chocolate Chip Waffles, and yes, that is REAL bacon. Not even sorry. 

And I cleaned up around the house. 

Then we headed out to Fort Caroline National Memorial.  It was a beautiful, sunny day after a week of rain and gloominess, so we were itching to get outside! 

Don't mind the pained expression, that would be from the sun in my eyes. 

And we had to indulge in some goodness on the way home: 

Sunday evening I did some meal prep for the week, hoping these will be a healthy and easy breakfast to grab this week! 

And I finally made some headway on planning our gallery wall! Hoping it all comes together like it is in my head. 

And that was our weekend! Kind of wish I could press rewind and start it all over, but I guess I'll settle for Monday instead. 

Don't forget to enter the giveaway! Just a few days left!
