A nice quiet weekend for a change

{Saturday morning: D made me breakfast! I thought it would be the day the earth stopped spinning, but I pinched myself and it was really happening. It was delicious, and I'm looking forward to many more breakfasts from him (can I order a side of back massage too? lol ) After his good deed, he proceeded to watch 2 championship college football games and a Rockets game... like sports much? }

Sunday in the City ~

{I heart flower shoppes}
{our first visit to "That takes the Cake" Bakery, it definitely won't be our last}

{D and his "hella nutella cupcake", after this picture he declared it the best cupcake he's ever had"}
{this is a horrible horrible picture, but I had to post it because of how good their red velvet cupcake is. It is SUPER MOIST and the cream cheese icing is just right! Dare I say better than Sprinkles red velvet? YEP!}

{the rain started coming down so we rushed to our car. I love this action sequence. The flowers are gorgeous, oh and so are you derek lol}
{a couple saying goodbye. It was too sweet}
{on the way home. notice how it is only raining just a few feet ahead of us}

I had such a nice quiet and relaxing weekend. Unlike the past several weeks of nonstop travel, I was able to stay home and enjoy the company of my sweet boys. I slept in, was treated to a full service breakfast from Derek, and finally finished the last of my final papers. We spent the better part of Sunday in San Francisco enjoying a yummy organic Italian lunch, grabbing a couple lattes, and trying out a new cupcake bakery: "That Takes the Cake", which has quickly become our new favorite =) Shout out to the owners Brian and Keisha Williams who were so sweet and friendly to us!

I can't believe Christmas is right around the corner, and just as I had promised, I have a Holiday giveaway to announce this week =)

Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend!
