Peek at the Week

It's {almost} Friday!!

I haven't done a peek at the week post in a while, so that's what's going down over here today. I realize that y'all probably care a lot more about items on sale and fun recipes, but I have a feeling that when I look back at this blog in a few years, these are going to be the posts I enjoy the most :)

And before we get started, can I just say that my coffee is this morning? 

Okay then. Let's take a peek!

Last Thursday, J and I double dated with Ryan and Molly to a Rangers game! It was probably the worst game to attend considering we lost 12-2, but if you didn't look at the scoreboard or field it was a good time :)

Friday night Kelsey and I had a roommate date and went to see Meryl Streep's new movie. I took this picture because since we've known each other (so for the past 9 years), this is how we movie. She gets popcorn, I get buncha crunch. Salty and sweet.

PS don't go see "Ricky and the Flash" unless you just want to watch Meryl sing on stage. A LOT. 

On Saturday I had a Katy day. Which, let me tell you, I've gotten a lot better at over the years. I would try these in college and after about an hour and a half I would call my girl Lisa with an "I'm booooored." #extrovertproblems 

So I woke up early and settled in with some coffee and Paula Deen before pilates. Because that's what you do before pilates - you look at all things carb-like and pumpkin.

Y'all - that top magazine right there will be my bestie this fall. I mean I opened it up to the table of contents and I could have sworn a light was shining down on it. Please note the first four items:

Loaves, Muffins, Bundts, and Pies.....I mean was this magazine written for me or what!? This is the magazine where I saw her seven fall loaves, couldn't decide which ones to try, and decided to make it a monthly goal of baking all seven in September. 

And THEN when I got to the bundt cake section, I saw this picture!

This is that new Williams Sonoma bundt cake I was telling you about the other week! Paula has it too! We're basically besties. And did you hear she's on DWTS this year? So excited. 

And all the while I'm flipping through magazines (and flipping out), I look to my left and see this:

He's not as impressed by Paula Deen and fun bundt pans. 

Later that day I headed to Mockingbird Station to treat myself to a mani/pedi, and there just happened to be a parking spot right in front of Bath and Body Works. So I had to go in. I mean I could smell the fall from outside the store. They had a buy 3, get 3 free special, so I think I made out pretty well...

Oh, and you see how those two candles on either end are baby candles? That's because I have a problem. I buy candles faster than I burn candles. So this is why I refrained and bought small ones....because these are still in my cabinet:

I bet my old roommate Lauren's jaw just dropped. Because she was with me when I bought them. ....two years ago. I know. I know. I need to burn faster. I just love them too much and don't want them to go away! I told you, I have problems.

Saturday night we went to an "all white" birthday party for one of my good friends from Baylor. My favorite part about this party? It was basically a giant Baylor reunion. Which couldn't have been more perfect- especially right before football season! I expect to see a lot of Baylor faces soon :)

Sunday morning I headed over to Jeff's before church, and lookie what was waiting for me on the counter when I got there:

He knows that the way to my heart is through a fall baking magazine. 

After church I headed to Mansfield to babysit this little cutie :)

She wanted to 1) take a picture and 2) take it while screaming. So you're lucky there's no sound in this picture. I love right after we take a picture because she always says "can I see it?" Girl already knows she's gotta double check the picture :)

We were watching a little bit of Sophia the First (great show by the way), and when I looked over I saw this....

Is this not how you watch TV? 

Later that day, Jeff and I took Charlie to Petco to pick out a new toy. He chose an elephant (Jeff named it Eli), that he loves dearly. He carried it around the store....

And snuggled with it the whole rest of the evening. Charlie + Eli = BFF.

 And that's about all we got! Have a wonderful Thursday everyone!

Until next time,


  1. I immediately heard the "Liiiis. I'm booooooored" upon reading this. Also, Char+Eli may be my new favorite combo. Love my God-dog.

  2. Omg Charlie and Eli. I can't. Too precious.
