Busy Weekend

Friday NightIMG_0245We went to Red Lion Friday night after work for a happy hour with Matt’s coworkers.  We had such a good time! Got a chance to have a few beers, eat a baked brie salad, and catch up with buds.  We got home around 9:00.  I love a night that starts early and ends early so you don’t screw your whole weekend over getting home at 3 a.m.


IMG_0246IMG_0248We were up by 8:00, and got started prepping the house for painting weekend #2.  We laid the brown paper and blankets all over and tapped the trim.  This paper makes clean up soooooo much easier.

IMG_0247These were the two colors we were considering.  We wanted something that was not white but still neutral.  We definitely went with the one on the left! The other one was just too brown.

We stopped around noon to run and pick up milk and we stopped at Chiptole’s for a quick lunch.  We also hit up HEB for a pizza crust/mushrooms for dinner.  We painted for a solid 8 hours and was rocking the 80’s music station on the TV.  Who knew the 80’s had that good of music?!?! You should of seen our dance moves…. yep, even when standing on a ladder 😉 We had a lot of fun!

IMG_0250Here is the base of our pizzas.  Matt’s-the pizza, Jen’s the mushrooms.

IMG_0251This is basil from our garden!  To make a margarita pizza, chop garlic and basil and slice tomatoes.

IMG_0252Spread some olive oil on your crust/mushrooms, sprinkle the chopped garlic and lay out your basil and tomatoes.

IMG_0253Cover with mozzarella cheese!

IMG_0255Put it in the oven for 15-20 minutes on 400.  Even my mushrooms were delicious.  I was mmmmmmmm-ing the whole time.


Another early morning….up around 7:30 and tapped the hallway so we could finish painting.  Ate a massive bowl of oatmeal and relaxed prepped for another day of painting.  We did have some errands to run……

First, we went the new Sprout’s Farmer’s Market.  It is a new grocery store in Katy.  Don’t waste your time.  HEB actually has a great selection of healthy foods.  One thing I did purchase was this apple cider vinegar drink.  I totally recommend it.  Yum! Next, we went to Home Depot to purchase to painting stuff and cages for our tomato plants. Last, we went the HEB for groceries.

IMG_0257We painted all afternoon and some how found the will power to prep some foods for the week and still make din din.  Dinner was quick, easy, and delicious.IMG_0258Grilled chicken, sautéed beet greans,  roasted butternut squash, and some killer homemade kombucha.  Off to bed! Let’s hope for a quick week so we can paint trim next weekend.  Sigh……….

Question: What did you do this weekend?
