A Relaxing Weekend!

Why does every weekend fly by like crazy?
I'm happy to say that we hardly did anything this weekend! 
After a busy couple weeks, it was nice to relax and just do whatever.

On Friday, Chris made me a super nice dinner. 
He's a great cook and I've recently taken over in the kitchen out of convenience because of our schedules. It was nice to have him jump back in, and I wasn't allowed to know what he was making. It was fun to watch him cook and just sit and enjoy a glass of wine :)

He made risotto with shrimp and asparagus. The yellow is lemon zest. Yum! 

The rest of the weekend was just spent relaxing and running errands but it was nice. I even finished a book and started another which is a miracle!

On the way home last night there was a double rainbow... it was pouring and super sunny at the same time. Gorgeous!

I've also proudly had a solid week of calorie counting. I'm not interested in losing too much weight...more-so watching what I eat and feeling better. No matter what, I am not giving up my wine and cocktails. Or my desserts (in moderation)...Never!! Pizza is also still part of my life.
 I've been using My Fitness Pal to count calories... I've used a few of these apps and this is definitely my favorite. Does anyone else use My Fitness Pal or one like it? You can also log your workouts which I'll hopefully be starting soon. Emphasis on "hopefully" :)

In other news, we watched the second half of Freedom Writers last night (now I actually want to see the whole thing). It was good and all, but was anyone else extremely disappointed with Patrick Dempsey's character being such a jerk? I didn't think it was possible to ruin McDreamy. Plus, I've heard he is nice in real life (or maybe I just made that up, I don't know)

Now that I've stalked the heck out of him on google images, he's okay in my book again.

I just used hashtags. I am officially losing it.

Of course, I'm linking up with Leeann, Sami, and Dana for Weekend Update!

How was your weekend?


  1. Glad you had a relaxing weekend, we did too :) Haha, and I am totally the same way about losing a few pounds.. I'd rather calorie count than give up pizza, wine, and desserts!

    1. It definitely makes things easier to not cut out all the good stuff!

  2. I feel like McDreamy is nice in real life too. I'll probably go "intensely research" him as well. That dinner looks delish!! What a lucky lady you are.

  3. Your Friday dinner looks delish! You should have Chris do a "guest post" of sorts and share the recipe! :)

    Glad you were able to have a relaxing weekend!

  4. That dinner looks delish! You're so lucky to have a man that is a good cook :) Thanks for linking up doll!

  5. That risotto looks SO good!!!!!

    1. thanks! Chris will be so flattered that I bragged about his cooking! :P

  6. Funny, I live in work in Hollywood and I saw Patrick Dempsey twice in a matter of weeks (a few years ago). The first time he went into a restaurant across the street from my work and my co-workers went in and asked for a pic with him and he said no...but he was eating so you can't blame him lol. Then I was on a flight with him. Of course he was in first class and I wasn't near him :)

    Thanks for linking up with us!
