Flambèd Weekend Shenanigans



Weekends can be funny things, sometimes they seem to drag on and sometimes they are over in the blink of an eye, but sometimes there is the rare weekend that is just the right length. This weekend, for me, was just the right length. Ya know Goldilocks and the Three Bears style! 

Reese and I spent Saturday morning volunteering at the Houston food bank. It was an eye opening and humbling experience. As hard as the subject of hunger can be the HFB is full of light and hope and opportunity. We spent the morning loading and sorting donated food. Ultimately I left inspired and grateful that there are agencies fighting hunger everyday.

I then headed over to meet one of my old neighbors to watch her son in a marching band competition. I was in color guard in high school (yeah don't hate-- we won nationals) so it was so fun to watch my alma matter compete... I even dug out my Class of 2007 shirt for the event (Um that was SIX years ago... K I'm gonna go cry and feel old now)

Sunday was the perfect day of friends, food and shopping! My sweet roommate just got engaged , so in celebration I got us press passes (hair flip. hair flip) to the I Do Bridal Soirée at the most fabulous hotel in Houston! We headed down to the new Kate Spade Saturday (which is just fabulous in case you were wondering!) and did some damage. I came home sunday to Reese flambéing steaks in celebration of our feature on the Viking Life website! Basically it was the "just right" weekend!
