I feel like I'm ready but not ready for this Monday... ready because the BACHELOR FINALE IS HERE!!! and because we had a great weekend filled with fun and no studying but I'm also not ready because this weekend was fun and my allergies are killing me. Oh well, as is life...

Friday during lunch, I finally treated myself to some shopping. I needed to find an Easter dress since I've already worn everything I have to past Easter's. I found a cute Tommy Hilfiger dress at a local consignment store. I love that it's more causal and has a super fun print so I can wear it during summer evenings and to work.

After work on Friday, we rested and watched some HGTV before heading out to Publix. We needed to get some food for Saturday and if there's nothing going on, we like heading over to the super nice Publix near us and just taking our time walking around... we're such old folks lol Afterwards, we came home and watched A Goofy Movie (lol) before going to bed at 9:30 (again, old folks).

Saturday, we were hosting supper club for the first time at our house so we had lots of cleaning to do. Since we went to bed so early, we were up early and had lots of time to relax and clean the whole house. Stephen was a super trooper and vacuumed all the floors which was amazing so I could get everything else done. We had some time to get a movie in so I forced suggested that we watch The Intern. It was an adorable movie and didn't expect to like it as much as I did - Stephen even came around and liked it! I definitely suggest watching it :)

After the movie, we got ready for supper club! Stephen wanted to grill out steaks and potatoes so I made baked brie as an appetizer, roasted Brussels sprouts, roasted broccoli for the meal and chocolate tres leches bunt cake. A lot of people asked for our baked brie recipe when I made it last and this time, I remembered to take pictures so I could give it to you!!

Baked Brie:
1 pkg crescent rolls (I use honey butter)
Brie cheese
Apple slices
1/4 cup brown sugar
Optional: honey

1. Un-wrap the crescent rolls and disconnect the two squares. On a pan with parchment paper, place one of the squares down and place the brie on top. 
2. Cut the apple into thin slices and place on top of the brie, covering the top. Add the brown sugar and then place the other crescent roll square on top, closing everything inside.
3. Bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes. Serve with crackers, apples, etc. 

This is like the best and easiest recipe ever. It's our go-to for guests and everyone loves it!

Supper club was super fun and we had a great time chatting - it was another late night lol Sunday came very early due to the time change but we rallied and headed to church. We were supposed to go to a spring training game but the club that our friends bought tickets through, cancelled their event. We were super bummed we couldn't go but it worked out for the best - my allergies are out of control and we were exhausted after a late night. We used Sunday to relax, get laundry done, switch out our winter/spring clothes and to start looking into details for our CO trip!!

Speaking of our CO trip, I think we narrowed it down to the middle/end of August and after looking through some hotel websites, we got the idea to check Vacation Rentals by Owner. This site had some great condos in Vail, Glenwood Springs and Breckenridge! Does anyone have any experience with this site or using something similar, especially in CO? I'd love to hear more!!

I cannot believe the Bachelor finale is tonight!! It's going to be EPIC!!!! I think Lauren is going to win but I'm starting to have my doubts... what do y'all think?

Linking up with Biana.

  8. Love the Hilfiger dress. i was wondering lilly pulitzer at first. I was so excited to find out Ben's pick. I had to be careful and avoid social media for 24hrs until I got to see the final rose episode.

  9. I really like that dress. Hope your allergies have cleared up. The only episode of The Bachelor that I watched as the final one. Seems like him and Lauren are well for each other.
