Friday Bry had off from work (and as we all know, I still haven't found a new job), so in the morning we went to check out a potential new apartment. VERY excited. I can't tell you how much we were overpaying at our current place, and now that he's been in Houston for almost a year (!) and myself since October, we have a better grasp on areas, and whether or not we really needed to live in a "cool" neighborhood.
Let's be real, we are *not* that cool, so clearly we didn't need to overpay on location. I think we will be very happy at our new place at the end of May since it will also mean that it's puppy time then...and wow do we need a puppy in our lives.
We had breakfast together, and then he went off to bottle some beer he's been making with a friend. Because even on days you don't go to work at a brewery, you brew beer, check it's quality, and bottle it for a competition. Ended up having dinner at said friend's house--huge steaks, artichokes, double baked potatoes, and probably other things I am forgetting. It was a fat kid pig out fest.
Saturday started out very innocently. We applied for our place and got approved. Then we somehow ended up at the Galleria on a mission for sunglasses which quickly de-railed into a couple new dresses, new tops, some shorts for him, etc. *cue danger zone music*
I made a ridiculously delicious meal for dinner on Saturday, cashew chicken over rice. I will post the recipe later this week--so easy and literally haven't gotten such good reviews on a meal since I learned my mom's beef stroganoff. It is a pinterest recipe, and a pleasantly surprising one at that! (I think we've all been there with the shitty internet recipe situation.)
|as bryan said, "the chicken looks like steak...and i like it that way." that is code for, wow lots of soy sauce!|
|oh and we had a really nice bottle of red too. oops.|
|someone else had approx. double the amount of perfect potatoes i did.|
|this is an old pic from Christmas, but you can see the aforementioned pecan rolls.|
can you tell i have a favorite holiday breakfast?!
This week is going to be crazy--I have FIVE amazing girlfriends coming into town Wednesday night-Sunday morning (6 am flight out), and they are all staying with us....so there may not be as many posts this week, and I may not even make it to Friday at the rate we will be enjoying sun & cocktails.
