a good weekend mix.

Happy Thanksgiving week everyone!  I decided this morning to take Wednesday off, so it’s a super short work week for this girl and I’m so excited!

I had a lovely weekend – a good mix of productive (getting the leaves raked, cleaning the house…) and fun (time with family and friends, baking, reading…).  I took a bit of an unplanned technology detox – I didn’t touch my computer once yesterday and it was really refreshing.  I need to get better about doing the same with my phone.  That thing is practically glued to my hand!

I skipped the gym both Saturday and Sunday, counting the yard and house work as my exercise instead.  I don’t know if it actually counts, but it works for me.  My back was certainly in agreement by the end!

Did anyone else watch the American Music Awards last night?  It’s always one of my favorite music awards shows of the year with the high emphasis on performances of all genres.

The celebs were looking fierce on the red carpet!  My favorites:

Selena and Justin (adorbs).  Taylor (gorgeous and classy).  Jennifer (the dress wasn’t my absolute favorite, but she is looking fantastic!).  Also,  Taylor won Artist of the Year (among other awards), so I was thrilled!

I made the most amazing cake yesterday.  A butterscotch pumpkin cake with a butterscotch glazed frosting.  It’s ridiculously amazing!  Also, well worth the burn on my arm that resulted in the baking process, but that’s neither here nor there.

I want to take a bath in that glaze – it was super sweet, but equally delicious.  I don’t want to know how much damage a slice of that does for my Weight Watchers, but it was so completely worth it.

I used up the last of my bagels and cream cheese this morning, but cooked up an egg to add a little protein (and to keep me full a bit longer).

I discovered an egg was cracked open in the carton, so I had a bit of a mess to clean up in the process.  It’s amazing my kitchen isn’t a complete disaster zone.

Night one of the Dancing with the Stars finale tonight!  I’ve got my fingers crossed for JR, but it wouldn’t surprise me if any of them won the trophy.

Looks like a great weekend!
I hate when eggs break in the carton, that happened to me a few weeks ago and resulted in a big mess that I was not in the mood to clean up at the time!

Baked good burns are so bittersweet! I burned my finger getting some cookies out of the oven on Saturday but they were well worth it too (chocolate chocolate chip :)). Eggs are one of the few things that help keep me full until lunch comes around these days!
