Laissez les bon temps roulez

Let the good times rolls! Our friends are getting married! I can't believe it's almost time to celebrate with them on their big day. But first, it's bachelorette party time. The bride decided to take the girls to New Orleans. I've never been and was excited to go. Even though everyone warned me the place is filthy...but had amazing food ;) Of course I was reassured when good food was mentioned haha 

We did a lot of exploring in those 3 days and ate way too much. Rather than ramble on, I'm sharing pictures from my camera roll and the girls' shared photo album. Enjoy!

Favorite Pin Friday | Volume 23

"Mirror, Mirror, on the wall, who's the fairest of them all?" I'm a sucker for mirrors! If I could have them all over my home I would. There is something about having a huge mirror in the entryway or the dining room that always catches my eye. Here are some of my favorites I have run across on Pinterest.

Hope you've had a good week! Until next post...xoxo Becca

Favorite Pin Friday | Volume 22

TGIF! Every now and then I run across a yummy looking recipe on Pinterest that is vegetarian friendly. The hubs is a big meat eater, but I thought, maybe skipping meat once a week wouldn't be too bad. A coworker told me about her and her husband's meatless Mondays. So I searched "meatless Monday" on Pinterest and found so many recipes. Here are a few that caught my eye.

Black Bean Quesadillas | The Curvy Carrot

Quinoa Stuffed Bell Peppers | Damn Delicious

Spaghetti Squash Burrito Bowls | Making Thyme for Health

Easy Vegetable Pot Pie | Mom's Test Kitchen
Happy cooking! Until next post....xoxo Becca

Weekend Recap

Does anyone else have a super busy couple of months ahead? I'm in the middle of roughly 2 months of busy busy weekends. Wish me luck because I could seriously use a good nap! As you've guessed by that intro, my weekend was busy ;)

Friday night the hubs and I met up with some of his old friends from high school for drinks and a little high school football. The hubs' 10 year high school reunion was Saturday night, but instead of going to the actually reunion he made plans to see the friends he wanted to catch up with.

Gorgeous sunset over Rhodes Stadium! Go Katy!

Saturday my friend and I attended Shop 'til You Drop hosted by Cy-Fair Women's Club. There were a ton of vendors and I got a few Christmas gifts purchased. I'd show you my finds, but then the recipients would know! I did purchase the "love letters" book below from LetterLounge for my sister-in-law's birthday which we celebrated on Sunday. Sorry for the low quality photo, I forgot to take pictures of it before I gifted it! Other vendors I enjoyed visiting were Rue Bird Market, I Love Indigo, and Angel's Rocks and Fossils. For all my readers who are teachers, Angel's offers a Rock Hounds Kit that's perfect for the classroom, pictured below. Saturday night the hubs and I met up with another one of his good friends for dinner and then off to the bar to relax and have a good time.

Some of our other finds...

Like I mentioned, Sunday morning we celebrated my sister-in-law's birthday with an early lunch. The hubs had to work Sunday night so we headed home shortly after the delicious lunch. Then it was time for me to prepare for the work week. Thursday night I will be headed to New Orleans for a bachelorette party. Wish me luck!

Have a great week! Until next post...xoxo Becca
