Bug bites like crazy, but worth it {my weekend}

We survived another fun weekend. Friday was honestly a blast. We ran some errands and then made it home with literally minutes to spare to watch our BENGALS in their first pre-season game! I'm just gonna say it, they looked pretty amazing! I was really happy with the outcome and it made me even more excited for the first real regular season game!!!

Saturday we took care of stuff around the apartment, then got ready for wedding #16 of the year! Three words to sum up that Saturday: hot. as. heck. Seriously. I have a total of 9 fresh, itchy bug bites (and still counting)...but we had a great time and it was so worth it for the shots we captured! We manage to find some of the coolest, most down to Earth couples in Cincinnati!




They even let us sneak them away for a mini sunset session (love when that happens), and they had such a gorgeous view of the city from their reception.

Sunday we headed to church, & stopped for a quick lunch date at the healthiest place we could think of on a whim and I got my favorite salad ever (panera: strawberry poppyseed grilled chicken salad)...

...then I finally got caught up on our laundry, did some groceries, and prepped our meals for the week (soo much chicken)! We nearly dropped $8 on pre cut pineapple when we thought, wait...couldn't we just do it ourselves?! So we paid $3.49 for a whole one, figured out how to cut it ourselves...and saved a ton of money. It may take a few extra minutes, but its so worth it! & you KNOW I was loving all this yellow in our kitchen!

I hope everyone had a fun, happy, awesome weekend!!! :)

  2. look at you, mastering the kitchen! I could eat fresh pineapple every day...and pretty much every other kind of fruit as well.

  3. Bug bites and being hot as heck are two of my least favorite things. The convenience of pre-cut pineapple is not worth the added cost if you ask me. And I'm sure the whole pineapple you cut up yourselves tastes much better.

  6. Oh I did not know they made those canisters in yellow! We have them in black, and you can't buy them separately so we have a silver one as well. I wish I knew they were in other colors!!!

  11. Wow 16 weddings! You guys are BUSY! That's awesome! Cutting fruit yourself is so much cheaper but I hate doing it! I only buy watermelons and pineapples and things like that if Matt agrees to cut them!
