The Weekend

My sister and I had a fun and busy weekend. Jenn arrived on Friday afternoon. We took an hour and a half power walk through the museum district. It was a great workout. My legs and feet were in pain. For dinner we had Greek, one of my favorites.




Saturday morning we picked up Kolaches for breakfast (not on weight watchers). Every time my sister comes to Houston, she wants Kolaches. Apparently, you can’t get Kolaches just anywhere. I never knew; they're really good! As we ate our breakfast, we drove around a historical district of Houston and looked at the homes. Here are some of our favorites. The pink house in the top left corner is my favorite.

After breakfast, we shopped (what we do best). After shopping, we came home for lunch and crafts. I made Panini’s. If you don't have a Panini maker, I highly recommend one; I use min all the time. I purchased it at B*d, B*th, and Bey*nd. I think it was $40-$50 and I used a 20% off coupon.



For our craft, we decorated Paper Mache wine bottle holders. I purchased the wine bottle holders at Hobby Lobby. We painted them and added scrapbook paper with decoupage. I forgot to take a "before" picture. Saturday night we were going to see Revoluti*nary R*ad but it was sold out. So, back to the mall! We picked up the grilled veggie salad from Calif*rnia Pizza Kitch*n and watched The Notebook. It was a great weekend. My sister used to have a blog; it was so funny. I'm trying to get her to start blogging again. Hope y'all had a great weekend!

Kate and I eat Kolaches at least once a week. She loves the bacon and cheese and they are pretty exclusive to Houston (at least I have never seen them elsewhere). I am glad y'all had a fun weekend.

Glad you girls had a fun weekend. I don't know how you packed all of the fun stuff into 2 days. Daisy was the cherry on top of the whipped cream.
Love, Mom
