Things we did this weekend:
Boy, did we eat.
I made this blue cheese mac and cheese and skinny cheesy jalapeno popper baked stuffed chicken for dinner on Friday, and they were both fabulous. (Although I sort of feel like the mac and cheese effectively negated the "skinny-ness" of the chicken, but whatevs. I'm not sorry because the pasta was heavenly.)
We had Razzoo's for lunch yesterday after church, and it was delicious, as always. We grabbed the off-menu swamp fries (which came with cheese, tomatoes, and green onions, and were laid on top of etouffe sauce. holy cow) to start after I saw my best friend post a picture of them on Instagram on Thursday and couldn't get them off my mind. We also enjoyed some rat toes (cheesy seafood-stuffed jalapenos) because I can't, in good conscience, go to Razzoo's without ordering rat toes.
We also both ordered entrees like idiots and will be enjoying them for lunch today. :)
I made this cheesy crockpot chicken and rice for dinner last night. It was good, and relatively healthy, but I'd make the following changes: (1) don't use a whole onion. maybe half? (2) spice it UP! Without a good half-teaspoon of cajun seasoning and salt, it was pretty flavorless.
It was our nephew's second birthday this week, and his "choo-choo" themed party was Saturday. My sister-in-law outdid herself with the cuteness.
Sorry for the crappy quality photo, but look how adorable everything is?! We had a wonderful time and loved getting to celebrate Landyn's birthday with Micah's sweet family.
On Saturday before the party, I headed to Massage Envy for a massage. This month has been hellish, and I deserved it, dadgummit. :)
I had also made plans with the girls from work to meet up at Bliss Spa at the W Hotel on Saturday evening for mani/pedis. I had never been to the W before, and it was definitely an experience.
This was the lounge area where I hung out before my appointment, sipping on fruity water and munching on brownies. Oh, Dallas... you're so much fancier than I am. But I can try to pretend to fit in when brownies are involved. :)
After we were all thoroughly gelatinous, we grabbed Thai takeout and headed to my friend's house to watch Hunger Games and snuggle with her dogs. Can I just tell you how much I love and need girl time? After Thursday, I seriously feel so, so blessed to have good friends.
On Sunday after lunch, we enjoyed a LAZY day of football-watching and napping. And Dexter! Who else watched the premiere? Oh. Em. Gee. I am so excited for this season!
So that's what we were up to this weekend. What were you guys up to?
