Weekend Shenanigans: TOMS, cookies, and babies!

Oh right...blooooooggg. It hasn't been that long, has it?
Pretty well a week, not so bad!

Did you have a splendid weekend?
What's going on out there?

Here's what Scott and I have been up to . . .

. . . hanging out with the Ben and Frances! It was a gorgeous day on Saturday and we played outside for a little bit, walked for some ice cream and made some dinner. PLUS there was watermelon, which is always awesome ;).
Needlesstosay, it was a good time and we all got some sun :D

. . . made some cookies! Cake Batter Chocolate Chip Cookies from Sally was what I chose...and they were pretty scrumptious! I followed her recipe fairly exactly, I just added a few less chocolate chips and sprinkles because I thought they looked alright!

They were so soft and fluffy and disappeared far too quick! Guess I should've made a double batch!

. . . went to a baby blessing/shower. It was Scott 2 (my nephew) and his wife Chantae's baby... little Scott Eli. (So many Scott's O.O ...but I think they more call him Eli). Such a little cutie! This is the event I made the cookies for and I figured a couple dozen would be alright for the potluck, but they sure disappeared quickly! My sister Marcie, made some Rice Krispie squares with melted Mars bars and butter and they were SO GOOD! You don't even know... *drool*

. . . I bought my second pair of TOMS. I've been converted! They're just so comfortable and easy to slip on! Green! :D

 (Paige, now you have to get yours so we can be twinsies!)

. . .  we saw a couple of movies. On Friday night, we saw Oblivion which was pretty good. It was kind of an interesting movie with a few unexpected twists...I liked it!
I'd probably give it ***.5(3.5)/5 stars. I'd recommend it for those interested in sci-fi/futuristic-y type movies.
Last night, we saw Iron Man 3 which I'd also say is just pretty good. Robert Downey Jr. is a very enjoyable actor (in my opinion). It was well done and I enjoyed it but I didn't walk away thinking - WOW, that was awesome! Overall a good continuing of the story. But I'd still definitely recommend if you're interested in those movies.
(PS, if you DO go see it, there's a clip at the end of the credits...but I personally don't think the clip was worth waiting through all the credits for).
I'd also give this movie a ***.5(3.5)/5 stars.
It looks like there's some good movies coming out soon though!

That's my weekend for the most part!
Now share YOUR weekend!
What's your most exciting event?
Have you seen Oblivion or Iron Man 3? 
What did you think?

Love you too.

  1. Baha, Joe saw Oblivion and he HATED it. I wasn't surprised because it has Tom Cruise and I'm not a fan of Tom Cruise, lol. And we saw Ironman 3 too! I wasn't too stoked to see it initially, but it was a lot better than I was expecting. I just really like the fact that Pepper got to do some cool stuff in this one.

    And I like the looks of those cookies! I will definitely have to give them a try one day!

    1. Haha! I think I preferred Iron Man to Oblivion...but I still thought Oblivion was OK. I liked Pepper in it as well (also...she's got abs yo!)

      They're tasty! Definitely do it!

  2. OMG -- cake batter chocolate chip cookies?!?!? Say it ain't so. Max's favorite food EVER is anything cake batter... I MUST make these. MUST.

    I love all things Iron Man. I am such a dork. I'm waiting for Iron Man 3 to come out on DVD though... why? Because I am a giant CHEAPSKATE. haha

    1. They're delish...I assure you ;)

      And hey, that's alright! Movies are insanely expensive!
      You'll just build the suspense ;)

  3. I need to try those cookies! Stat! Thanks for posting the recipe!!!
