miscellany monday

Link up with Carissa.

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend! My how they fly by-- it's already Monday again!


I made it home from Dallas safe and sound Friday evening. Afterwards, we joined Calley and Brian for dinner at Tin Roof (yummm). We have been wanting to check out Avondale Brewery for a while, so we headed there next. Such a fun time! May I suggest "The Tripel" - but watch out, it's potent!


You know what's better than a cupcake? FREE cupcakes!!! Mr. M and I discovered while having lunch at Taziki's that the GiGi's near our home was giving away free cupcakes this weekend. SCORE! I discovered a new favorite- the cinnamon roll cupcake!

{quality time}

We spent Saturday evening with the Stricklands, meaning we indulged in some "sword-fighting", baby snuggles, grilled meat, quality friend time, and card games. Fun fun!


Confession: I'm 100% obsessed with Christian Grey. We're talking Edward/Peeta/Chuck Bass type obsession here. And I should probably be ashamed of my unyielding advertisement of this series on blogger, Twitter, Instagram, etc. But I'm totally not. I took "The Lucky One" to Dallas with me to finish reading for the second time before I watch the movie. Finished it on the fly to Dallas. Started "Fifty Shades of Grey" on Friday, and finished it Saturday morning. Sunday I headed to Barnes and Noble to pick up the next 2 books in the trilogy. I'm about half-way through Book 2, even took it to Chik-fil-a with me on my lunch break. I'm actually looking forward to getting to my hotel this evening so I can start back reading...ya know, until Gossip Girl comes on, of course. Seriously, jump on the bandwagon if you haven't already. The books are so bad, but so so so good.

Have a great Monday everyone!

Gigis cupcakes are the best. And I really need to read 50 shades of grey now. It's next on my list (after I finish re-reading the hunger games).

I've never heard of "Fifty Shades Darker" I'm going to have to check that out! Free cupcakes, what?! That's awesome :)
