Weekend In Review



It’s baby time! So many close friends and family are having babies, making babies and raising babies that we can hardly keep up! But it sure does make for some fun snuggling time with all the new additions.





chick fil aA week is not complete with it…

greek fest





New Orleans Greek Fest was this weekend, and my super cool husband drove me down just to get a gyro … and baklava … and french fries, even though we have about four Greek restaurants within a 2 mile radius of our house. It’s just not the same and always brings back fun memories of my time in Greece. WORTH IT.


What I’m Loving Lately:

1. Canned pears topped with shaved almonds
2. Back support pillows (I’m THAT pregnant girl now)
3. Catching up on months worth of Modern Family and Happy Endings via DVR
4. Only a month until the BEACH!
5. Strawberry shortcake with an embarrassing amount of Cool Whip
6. Audrey’s kicks and punches
7. Getting up early and feeling productive
8. My new sewing project list (blankets, onesies, headbands, oh my!)
9. My new Kindle Paperwhite
10. Coffee (half-caf people! well, most of the time…)

What I’m Cooking Lately:

1. Shepherd’s Pie
2. Chicken Pesto Pizza
3. Shrimp Bread
4. Sloppy Joe’s (ground beef + tomato paste + packet of Sloppy Joe mix)
5. Gazpacho

What I’m Listening To Lately:

1. Imagine Dragons
2. Sugarland Pandora Channel
3. Pink + Nate Reuss “Just Give Me A Reason”



Weekend in Review

Whew! What a weekend.

During a weekend where I should have been writing my thesis, writing my media law paper, finalizing my public opinion survey, designing invitations, reading three books, designing logos and websites for two clients and working on a marketing plan….I instead:

– went to a concert, had dinner with Jason, went to a birthday party, watched football ALL day, watched two movies, slept late and ate sushi.

I know you’re thinking…”But Stephanie, those lists are completely opposite from each other.” And yes, I agree, but it was a wonderful weekend (even though I’m playing catch up now).

The main highlight was Friday night concert: Patty Griffin. Some of you may have never heard of Patty Griffin, but I discovered her in college during the “months of which we do not speak” aka mine and Jason’s breakup. And have loved her ever since.

Here is probably one of her more famous songs:

It was a GREAT concert at Manship Theatre. I would also recommend downloading “Let Him Fly,” which she didn’t song (sadface), but is my favorite of hers.

Jason was a great sport to come along to what I described as “Alanis Morissette, Jewel and Joni Mitchell had a baby, and that baby is Patty Griffin.” Probably not his typical style of music, but a good husband nonetheless to come along 🙂
