Good morning everyone! It’s Monday and MLK day. For ya’ll that don’t know, MLK (the paladin Martin Luther King Jr…”I had a dream…” guy) It’s a 3-day weekend for most, but not for my office apparently. Although my boss is always so kind and is letting me out early, which I can’t complain about 🙂
Weekend Recap Time
I don’t know about you but my weekend consisted of A TON of football, courtesy of Andrew, of course. But I will say #GoPatriots
Anyone else watch those Tasty Videos on Facebook? Those quick and easy recipes they show you how to make…I swear I get hypnotized by them and will sit there for hours watching them all.
Anyways, I watched one making a crepe cake, and with my dire love for crepes, I had a brilliant idea that I wanted to try making my own crepes.
I looked up a recipe off of Pinterest, God I love Pinterest. I found myself a nice little crepe recipe and so…
And my sweet sweet love came home with wheat flour so I could experiment and make crepes. So the first couple rounds were practice and by the 3rd one I was able to perfect it. With the batch I made, it made about 5-6 and they were pretty good we tried different combinations; nutella, strawberries, yogurt, honey, etc…No pictures- but next time I’ll be sure to take them of the final product. But overall, Operation Make Crepes was a success.
After the dessert, I made dinner. Andrew has never had stir-fry which is kind of crazy to me, so I whipped this up and omg, it was so delightful.
and it sat over a bed of brown rice, yum. I love shrimp more then life.
The rest of the night looked like this
And then Andrew wanted in on it….OR, I just wanted him in on it 😉
Poor Andrew spent all day at the BMW dealership getting an oil change and a wash- literally left at 11:15AM, didn’t get back home till 4PM LOL. Technical difficulties is an understatement. But meanwhile, I shopped at Target, picked up groceries, and all that fun stuff.
We finally congruently met up, got ready, and headed to his parents house in NH to watch the football games, but more specifically for the Patriots!
I love coming here, his mom feeds us tremendous amounts of food. Always has an abundant of finger snack options to pick at and then a whole meal to go with. You never leave here hungry.
The first game; Seattle vs Atlanta
Also, love coming here to see Andrew’s brother, sister in law- Evelyn, and the girls. They’re always a blast! The little one was sick so she was laying on the couch so the three of us were of course at the food table.

And then it was time for the PATRIOTS!
And if you didn’t watch, we won 🙂
That afternoon, Andrew and I met up with his friend Dan and his lady friend Kelly 🙂 We went to brunch in the South End of Boston at a place I have yet to go to called TORO.
It’s a yummy Spanish tapas place but they also have meals as well. I think this might be my next favorite restaurant in Boston.
Their food was amazing. We were there for brunch and the whole time Dan and Kelly were raving about the corn. Like, corn?! I didn’t think twice about it- that is, until they ordered it and it got to our table and Andrew and I devoured it. I wish I snagged a picture but even the SECOND time we ordered it- devoured.
Earlier that day, Andrew was complaining about the pores on his nose; don’t we all?! Well I remember reading a blog; I wish I remember whose it was so I could give a shout out (so if it was you- let me know and I can edit this!) But they recommended charcoal nose strips sooo we went to Target and got
Holy moly guys, okay- I’m just going to be shameless and talk about my pores right now… When I took that strip off, OMG, half grossed out half SO relieved. I honest to God didn’t even think mine were that bad, I’m pretty good at tending to my skin but woah what a difference! It really just sucks those bad boys up. I loved it. I use a charcoal face wash but after this I’m THAT much more of a charcoal skin care advocate. #unbelievable
Shortly after our little pore strip extravaganza- this one fell asleep on me. He has no idea I took this nor does he know that I’m posting this on here- but look how sweet he looks fast asleep.
in the meantime, I watched more football. Cowboys vs Green Bay. I was rooting for Dallas, only because I’m so certain I’m going to move to McKinney and Dallas will be the second team I root for 😉 #Patsforlife
We also watched the last game; Kansas vs. Steelers
Last thing before I end this;
When I was playing with Andrew’s niece; Sarah, whose 8- introduced me to this game… I’m not much of a gamer when it comes to my iphone/ipad but I’m addicted to this. There’s also a Dumb Ways To Die 2 and I can’t stop playing.
Andrew was watching me play and decided he wanted a game to play too and found this- whatever it is…
My point of this is- Do you guys have any cool iphone games you play?! PLEASE SHARE!
Also… Did anyone else watch the football games? Who did you root for?!? I won’t even be mad if you say Houston Texans 😉
