The Weekend.

Oh, hello! Who's excited that Monday is finally here? No one? Shocking. Me neither. The weekends fly by far too fast. I'm all for starting a petition to make every weekend a three day weekend. If anyone is interested, please do let me know.


So I kicked off the weekend with a boot camp class (ouch), and celebrated my work out accomplishment by eating. Makes sense, right? I made bacon wrapped jalapeno poppers, which I had been dying to try since seeing them on Allie's blog last week. They did not disappoint.



Saturday
Saturday morning I headed to Barnes & Noble to pick up Plate to Pixel after Jackie recommended it via The Everygirl coffee talk last week. I can't wait to start reading it! And when I returned home, the mailman had just delivered Cupcakes and Cashmere. Not too shabby, eh?
Sunday
On Sunday, we ventured out onto the ocean on a friend's boat.  The sun shined off and on, but we couldn't have asked for better weather temperature-wise.
getting in touch with nature, baby lobster style.

Starfish. I can not take any credit for catching these sea creatures, by the way.
boating with boyfriend.
sand dollars. or as they call them in these parts, sand dollahs. 
So that's all I have for you. I kind of sucked at taking pictures this weekend. I promise I'll make it up to you next weekend. My parents and my boyfriend's parents are visiting which clearly calls for many many pictures. I won't let you down. Pinky promise.


I'm linking up again for the Weekend Update!


Have a marvelous Monday!

How fun! I haven't got a chance to go boating this year, and this post is really making me want to go! I need to make it happen. I also need to pick up the Cupcakes and Cashmere book asap!
Happy Monday!

I bought Plate to Pixel when it first came out and absolutely love it. It has definitely helped me in my (sad and often really bad) digital food photography journey!

Looks like you had a blast this weekend. Great weather, wasn't it?!

PS: LOVE your anthro mug!

I think your weekend photos are beautiful. They are soft and full of life.

I see your boyfriend has an Aquinas t-shirt on...did he by any chance go to school in Michigan?
