It was a cold and dreary first weekend of March around here, and I felt like all we did was eat. Ha! So it's back to the gym this week for me. ;) But other than eating, here's a peek into our weekend: 


+ My friend Nicole and I took our kids to Peppa Pig World of Play in Grapevine. It was so cute, the kids loved it and it was so well done. It was super crowded, however, so I'd recommend going on a weekday (not during Spring Break, which is the next two weeks for our area) or just wait until the new wears off just a bit. 

+ I made Natalie's Grilled Shrimp Tacos with Pineapple/Jalapeño Salsa for supper and they were so good! I'll definitely be making them again. 

+ Brandon and I have recently gotten into "Dirty John," so we watched a few recordings of that before calling it a night. 


+ It was sweet Silas's 5th birthday at a roller rink, which was adorable! I hadn't been roller skating since I was in my early teens (and the boys never have), so it was a fun little adventure -- and we loved celebrating Silas! 

My sweater is old; similar here

+ I got a massage on Saturday afternoon, and then we hit the easy button and had Modern Market delivered via DoorDash. It was so yummy! 

+ Brandon and I crawled into bed early and fell asleep watching "Dateline" -- clearly we're cool. 


+ We had to go pick out some stuff for a few home renovations, and that took up most of our morning. We capped it all off with brunch at Chef Point, a local place that has a really cool backstory. If you're interested in reading it, click here. Let's just say it's in an old gas station and a not-so-hidden gem -- and was featured on "Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives." Mimosa flight and Crab Cakes Benedict -- what more can you ask for?!

+ We had a productive afternoon, which included having groceries delivered and me chopping up all the fruit for the week. I dislike the actual chopping part, but love having all of our fruit ready to grab and go. I absolutely love my glass food storage containers; I have both the round and the rectangle and they have been awesome. 

+ I made homemade chicken parmesan for supper (using this recipe) and made the boys' favorite "Hulk Muffins" (using this recipe and these muffin liners). I was definitely ready to close the kitchen after dinner! :) 

Hope y'all have a lovely week! 

Linking up with Biana and Tanya


  1. So much good food this weekend! I haven't been roller skating since middle school - talk about a blast from the past! xo, Biana -BlovedBoston

  2. You all had a fun and busy weekend.

  3. I took a friend to Chef Point a few years ago & was just thinking that when a couple other friends come to visit in May I need to take them there!

  4. I too hate the actual chopping but love to prepare all the fruits and veggies as soon as I get them home from the store so no one has a good excuse not to eat well.

  5. That mimosa flight is genius! I'm jealous of all of your cooking and I bet it felt great to start your week like that!!

  6. I've never seen a mimosa flight - so cool and those eggs look delicious! So many fun activities for the boys this weekend!

  7. Hulk muffins sounds so fun! That mimosa flight looks divine, and crab eggs benedict...a girl after my own heart. My fave! Thanks for linking up with Hello Monday! Tanya - The Other Side of the Road
