weekend review {junnnnnk food}

We enjoyed a picnic in the back of our truck...
... and enjoyed the view!
Be still my heart.... DQ blizzards are just the BEST!

I can't help it that I crave a Dairy Queen blizzard almost daily. Buy one get one for a buck makes it that much  more tempting!
I can't help it that Eric and I didn't do anything exciting over the weekend... but with the work schedule he has right now? I am cherishing these small moments we have together. I've never felt so giddy to stuff my face full of junk food... with Eric by my side :)

P.S. Clearly we were physically fed over the weekend, but our hearts are full from being spiritually fed as well! I am so grateful we were able to grow together as we listened to General Conference!

Aweee this is such a sweet post :) <3

Amber said...

Not only does that picnic look super cute, but I am so jealous of the pizza and ice cream right now :) Unfortunately, I have slacked in eating better this past week, so there won't be pizza and ice cream in my future for a while!
Hope you enjoyed the time with your hubby! As usual, you 2 are super adorable :)

I think eating pizza in the back of a truck in the mountains sounds like something exciting to me! ;) glad you got to hang out with eric and listen to conference...it was amazing!

Andrea said...

Thanks for the hair love comment! You can't tell that much in the pictures but I have about 5 inches of growout because we just moved here and I'm scared to go to a new stylist :) Too bad you don't live here, you've got great hair! That's usually how I judge my stylists, ha ha! Cute blog :)

Andrea said...

Oh yeah, I read you're going to Maui. We went there last summer, you'll have a blast! If you are staying near Lahaina (can't spell it) go to all the little shops at night, and made sure get a snow cone, I've never anything better than a Hawaiian snow cone in my life! Unfortunately I can't remember the place we got ours at, it's hard to find. Maybe ask a local what the best place it, I remember it was by a make your own bath salt place. If you drive the road to Hana, DO NOT EAT AT THE ROAD SIDE SHACK, no matter how hungry you are. We were starving and it was good but Scott got crazy sick after that and had to be taken to the urgent care and we missed half our trip :( Hmm.... what else.... Oh we rented a tandem bicycle and it was hilarious and fun. Luau's are pretty fun too, we did that on the big island though, not Maui so I can't recommend one. That's all I can think of for now, have fun!
Oh PS, if you don't mind me asking, what podunk town in Utah do you live in, I'm from a podunk town in Utah :)

Janna Renee said...

How do you eat blizzards every day and stay so skinny!! I'm glad you guys are cherishing your time together!!!

Monica's Notebook said...

What a perfect weekend! I'm glad you two enjoyed your picnic date together. It's the simple things that make our heart so full!

Erin said...

Looks like a fun weekend, the simple picnic date was cute girl :)

Eloquent English said...

Yesterday I started a 7 day diet to kick off my plan to shape up for summer and today I can only eat veggies. I'm DYING looking at that Dominos box, and your blizzards are beckoning to me.
I'm glad you had a yummy and spiritual weekend, though!

Nothing beats the time you get to hang out with your hubby and not do anything! We spent some time this weekend eating junk food and just hanging out too and it was awesome!
