Weekend {Update}

Friday night Z and I ... you guessed it, stayed home and enjoyed Chili Cheese Dogs and watched Act of Valor.

My Chili Cheese Dogs are pretty amazing, they are also kid and Z approved which is always welcomed in our house!

Act of Valor was a very different movie but Z and I both really liked it.

One of Z's friends had prepped us before hand and told us not to expect it to be "movie" like but more like a documentary. This movie really makes me wonder how many plots against America there are every day that we probably know nothing about.

Saturday morning after mine and Louie's morning walk I made Z and I Chocolate Chip Buttermilk Pancake Baked Oatmeal (try saying that 3 times fast) - you can find the original recipe here on this super cool food blog I stumbled upon on....pinterest, shocking I would find ANYTHING on pinterest, I know!

Here is my rendition:

You will need:
1/3 C old fashioned rolled oats
1/2 tsp unrefined granulated sugar
1/4 tsp baking powder
pinch of salt
1/2 C low fat buttermilk
1 egg white
1/4 tsp pure vanilla extract
2tbsp chocolate chips
pure maple syrup (or just regular syrup since even the off brand maple syrup is a bit pricey)

Stir together:
baking powder

In a separate bowl stir together:
egg white
vanilla extract

Then combine:
wet and dry mixtures, then stir in chocolate chips (Next time I may just do 1 tbsp of chocolate chips because two was very rich)

Place mixture in lightly greased ovenproof bowls

And VIOLA! Yummy filling breakfast for only 243.1 calories!!!
This recipe is for one so you will have to double it if you want to make more!

Saturday I also ran 15 million errands which included THE WALMART (which sad to report no crazies this time), our grocery bill was a whopping $24.24 and this was not due to couponing people (which I am really wanting to get into BY the way!)

I also got fitted for the first time for a bra - ladies if you have not done this before ya got to be goin' to Ms. VS and gettin' measured!

I never realized I didn't know how to wear a bra properly - at 25 years old that is a little sad....

Sunday Z and I went to church and then parted ways....he went to play golf and I went to see my grandmother and went to a friend's baby shower!

This again was such a nice relaxing weekend, which helps since we have been crazy busy during the week!


Since I love cooking and plan out mine and Z's dinners, I thought I would start sharing with everyone else! (I stole this idea from my friend Shayna's blog, if you don't follow her you are missing out)

Monday - Taco Salad
Tuesday - Leftovers
Thursday - Ranger's game = Ballpark Hot dogs! Yum!
Friday - Date Night (Italian)


Also, speaking of my friend Shayna.........

(Shayna I stole this picture off of your facebook too - sorry for stealing so much today)

Shayna just got engaged this past week to her love Matthew!!!

Well that is all for today on my long winded blog post! Hope you lovelies have a fabulous week!




  1. Congrats on the low grocery bill!! I love to be a savvy grocery shopper, I use coupons, but not to the extreme. Just on products we want/use and when they are on sale that way I can maximize the savings!! :)

  2. Yum that looks delish! So happy for Shayna!! He did good.
