Weekend Recap: Date Night, Farmers Market and Shopping Oh My!

Happy Tuesday Loves!

I hope you all had a lovely weekend!  Mine was one of the best!  I enjoyed a great date night with my main man, Derek on Friday

We enjoyed a laid back evening at one of our Favorite restaurants, Loring Kitchen and Bar.  We enjoyed a bottle of wine along with a few appetizers: Crab Cakes, Scallops and Shrimp Cocktail to be exact!  We had a great waiter who recommended a wonderful bottle of wine and brought our appetizers out as a mini 3 course meal!  Our waiter was  attentive left us alone as we chatted the evening away.  It was nice to be able to just sit and relax without feeling rushed and to be able to have some quality time together. 

Saturday started off with an eventful morning at the farmers marker with my sister. 

Yes, that is a cinnamon roll that is the size of my head (and I have to say It made me miss the cinnamon rolls from Wheatfields in Omha)

Post farmers market my sister and I headed to the mall for a little shopping and catching up!   I am so glad she has moved up to the cities! It is so nice to be able to spend time with her!  We weren’t shopping for anything in particular but ended up hitting the jack pot at Madewell!

I am now obsessed with that store!  We had an awesome sales associate who honestly made our day and shopping experience!  Here are a few of our purchases!

I have to say my favorite purchase of the day was my denim vest from MadeWell 

I have been dying to see if I can pull off the denim vest look!  And, yes my denim vest might become my new outfit obsession/staple!  How many days a week do you think I can get away with wearing a vest?

After working up a small appetite shopping we headed to my favorite local organic restaurant Tao for a late lunch or maybe dinner (it was 4:30)!   Some post workout fro yo rounded out the day and our evening ended with all of us (Derek, my sister and I) curled up on the coach watching Mud. 

Interesting movie, very suspenseful and one I am not sure I would need to watch again!

Sunday started with an amazing church service focusing on how we are chosen by God.   We have started a new sermon series on labels that we are given by today's society and how the labels God gives us are perfect.

Post church Derek and I headed over to a local restaurant to watch part of the Vikings game before heading to run a few errands.  My afternoon was spent baking these muffins (my favorite bread recipe turned muffin), making these bars, and these Sloppy Joe’s all while Derek worked on homework!  The Sloppy Joe’s were a huge hit!

Full of flavor and Derek even said that he would not have realized they were made with ground Turkey unless I would have told him! 

Our evening ended much like Saturday, curled up watching Jack the Giant Slayer

And I have to say even though it was a bit cheesy I actually really liked it!

So tell me, what were some of the highlights from your weekend?
