Weekend Recap

I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend! I thoroughly did! Sam and I had ZERO plans, so it was very nice to get to hang out and do what we wanted. Friday night, we went to dinner with my parents and just hung out for a bit. When we got up Saturday, it was COLD. I fell in love! If you know me in real life, you know that I am a cold weather girl. We got ready for the day and went and had brunch at our favorite spot. After, we went and ran a few errands, shopped, stopped by our favorite coffee shop for some coffee, and just enjoyed the day! It was so much fun just hanging out together. Don't get me wrong, I adore hanging out with my family and friends, but sometimes it is nice to just be alone every now and then. :) Saturday night, we went to dinner at Houston's and then to see Taken 2. We loveddddd it. It was SO good. At times, I would lean over and tell Sam, "OMG, I am literally sitting on the edge of my seat and can't breathe.." It was SO intense! He just laughed at me, go figure... Sunday, I woke up and went grocery shopping. ( I have been needing to go for awhile, but kept putting it off. ) I got all my yummy Fall goodies : butternut squash, acorn squash, pumpkin, kale, etc. I was in the mood to cook, so I whipped up my favorite, Chicken Corn Chowder. It is a definite hit in my family. I fix it quite often for everyone. After I cooked the soup, I decided I wanted to pull my pumpkin out and make a pumpkin roll....TO DIE FOR....If you have never tried pumpkin, go get you some immediately...I literally could eat it everyday. After I finished cooking, we took it all to my parents! We enjoyed the afternoon watching football, enjoying a few Samuel Adams Octoberfests, and hanging out...It was a WONDERFUL weekend! I would love to have more weekends like that....What did you do? :) Of course, I will be updating you on what I purchased this weekend while we were out shopping...Duh...
