Happy Monday, muffins!
I have no idea why I just said that…I promise you are the fluffiest, tastiest muffins out there…not that I want to eat you…because well, who would read my crazy ramblings then?…oh and I’m pretty sure that would still be a form of cannibalism…
Unless you were a PUMPKIN muffin…then all bets are off! 😉
I hope you all had a MARVELOUS weekend! Mine was FANTASTIC and I just can’t wait to share it with you!
Honestly, I should have known the next few days would be filled with greatness when Friday morning’s breakfast looked like this:
Overnight oats…in a Cookie Nookie jar…topped with marshmallows!
I mean, seriously, the only thing that could have made it better was if, after my first bite, Lucky appeared out of thin air and granted me some wishes!
Leprechauns do grant wishes, right?*
*Yep, just Googled it…they do! 😉
Of course there was also a trip to the farmer’s market on Saturday:
Apples galore, acorn squash, pumpkin, cucumbers, green beans, and my latest obsession…Asian pears!
I may or may not have scouted out the perfect pumpkin JUST to be a prop for Sunday’s pancake post! 😉
And speaking of pumpkin, check out what I found:
Oh yes…good things are going to come of this…yes INDEED! 😀
For the record, I would like to have a pound of these kisses delivered to me on my deathbed…you can quote me on that!
But believe it or not, this weekend wasn’t ALL about food…
I got to hang with my bestie!
Since it only got up to like 50 degrees the other day (and we are both total pansies when it comes to cold weather), we opted for some fun indoors instead:
Yay for DYI mani/pedis! 😀
But the biggest highlight of this weekend?
I’ll give you a hint: Pumpkin Beer, Bratwursts, and BB!
I’ve been wanting to attend our city’s Oktoberfest for years now so on Saturday night, BB and I met up and decided to check it out. They had a HUGE tent set up, complete with live music, dinner and desserts offered from local German eateries, and all the beer you could want!
We had a great time singing, dancing, and of course stuffing our faces with plates piled high with
mustard German food!
I know a lot of you have been wondering why BB has been absent from the blog lately. The truth is, I wasn’t really sure how to go about bringing this up…until now. About a month ago, BB and I decided to end our relationship. This weekend was our first time seeing each other since then and while I was afraid it might be awkward, it really was quite the opposite. We had a night full of fun with plenty of laughs and we both agree that we will care too much for one another not to remain friends.
And that, my little muffins, is the MOST marvelous thing! 🙂
Now it’s YOUR turn…
Share marvelous things from your weekend!
LOVE you and your marvelous-ness! 🙂
The marvelous of my weekend was despite being super busy working, I was still able to get all of my NASM reading in so that I can spend the rest of the week reviewing the material. It’s really the little things.
Oh and the glass of Apothic White I consumed Friday and Sunday nights… 😉
That’s great babe! It really IS the little things…especially when those things involve rest! And wine, yes, wine totally helps! 😉
I had a feeling something was going on and I was almost going to email you. I am glad though that things ended well, the ones that don’t can be really awful! YAY for a good ending!
I love your OIAJ with marshmallows, so fun and I bet SO good! You are so creative Heather! I can’t wait to see what you do with the kisses, pancakes?!
Love ya girl! I think you are simply marvelous!
Thanks doll! You are so sweet to think of me! Oh my gosh, those marshmallows have been sneaking into EVERYTHING! Lol! So good! And I’m creative? Girl, I hadn’t even THOUGHT of putting the kisses in pancakes, but NOW my wheels are turning!! 😉
Love you too! xoxox
Girl this looks like an awesome weekend! Love octoberfest! I’ve been eating tons of muffins and marshmellows as well. I love how I feel like I say this all time – us bloggers so in tune.
Awesome things from my weekend – 2x yoga, celebrating a friends birthday, soups consumed! sweet potato soup and mushroom leek bisque, and eating like 3 different types of squash.
I know I’ve been awful with updating/commenting. Lame blogger – but I’ve been reading and making your recipes 🙂 Please call text email whenever because I miss you!! i know I texted once a couple weeks ago and then my responses were lacking.
Aww, no worries, love! Sounds like you’ve been pretty busy…in a good way! Totally jealous over your mushroom leek bisque!! Yum!
Miss you girlie! Blend 2013 can’t get here soon enough!
I think it’s great that you two care so much about each other to remain friends! You can never have too many friends, right?! The four of us enjoyed a family weekend together with house cleaning, lounging, movies and food! Really, you can’t ask for more. Oh and the weather here is amazing!!! That always makes for a great weekend.
I hope you have an incredible week Heather!
Well, you COULD ask for the house to magically clean itself! 😉 Totally jealous of your amazing weather…it’s been so gloomy and cold here lately! Boo!
so you’re saying I can set you up with somebody?? 😉
Only if Travis has a twin! 😉
looks like you did have a marvelous weekend! we have been enjoying lots of apples lately 🙂
and so happy to hear that you two remain friends and still have a good relationship, that is great!
Thank you girls! Have you been apple picking? I really want to find an orchard around here!
Heck yes, special dark cocoa is where it’s at! I haven’t seen those pumpkin spice kisses before though, now that’s awesome. Knowing me I’d eat them WAYYYYY too quickly! Be careful 😉 gotta love October
I know! I’ve been looking for this cocoa EVERYWHERE! I can’t wait to try it…I may not be the biggest fan of chocolate, but when I have it, only the dark stuff will do!
The kisses are DANGEROUS! So far, I’ve only had one, but I swear the bag keeps taunting me! ;P
Umm, I really want that breakfast. And those kisses! I feel like I could destroy the bag in about 15 seconds. :-p
Oh yeah…they are DEFINITELY dangerous! All I can say is it’s a good thing kisses come individually wrapped! Lol
thats so great that you and BB are still able to maintain a friendship.
but lets be real…all that pumpkin stuff is WAYYYY better. have a pumpkin ale for me please?? im so sad to be missing it this fall 🙁
Aww, of course love! The next one I will raise in your honor! Just be sure to give that little belly an extra rub just for me! 😉
Heather that sounds like such a fun weekend!! I went to a little Oktoberfest in Richmond and it was fun but way smaller.
Can I make a leprechaun wish too?! I want some of that PB 😉
I know, right? I would wish for a never-ending, preferably calorie-free, jar! Lol
Okay this might sound a little creepy, but I was actually just wondering what was going on with you and BB since you didn’t mention him for so long. Sorry to hear that things didn’t work out 🙁 But I’m glad that they ended well and that you guys are still able to be friends… that’s definitely marvelous 🙂
Since it’s Thanksgiving up here in Canada, my weekend included lots of marvelous food and marvelous company… and there’s more on the agenda for tonight! 😀
i wish i could find those marshmellows near me, I am that person who eats only that part.
I think your pumpkin totally made the shot on Sunday’s pancake shoot. Not only did I notice it, but I was super impressed. But now you have this pumpkin, and I have this punpkin so I think we need to do something fun with these. We should start a real (not from a can) pumpkin challenge.
Glad to hear you and BB are back on good terms…I was starting to wonder where he went.
Awww, really? You just made my night girlie! 😀 And I’m TOTALLY up for a not-from-can pumpkin challenge! Woo hoo!
I love when you can comfortably stay friends with someone after otherwise calling it off (and yup, even better if that friendship involve lots of German food–and beer). I totally love your breakfast style–cereal marshmallows on any sort of nut butter sounds like perfection. For the mornings you don’t feel like making pancakes, that is 🙂
EXACTLY…to everything! 😀
I want a PB jar full of marshmallows!!! And you had colorful ‘mallows. *le sigh*
Were you stalking in in the farmers market. You bought the exact same things I did. Creeper.
Glad you have fun at Oktoberfest with BB. Being friends is a good thing. And beer is always a good helper if there is any awkwardness. 😉
Haha! Great minds think alike, huh? And yes, I was definitely planning on leaning on my beer crutch that night…but luckily I didn’t end up needing it!
Might I see a few marshmallows making their way into a certain foodie package in a few weeks? 😉
I CAN EAT MARSHMALLOWS IN 23 DAYS!!!!*
*No, I’m not excited. Act natural.
Omg, you need to make one of those paper chains out of construction paper like we did in school to count down the days to Christmas!!! Lol
It looks like an AWESOME weekend!! I need to go to your farmer’s market!! I hate that about you and BB, but I’m SO glad you two can still be friends. I actually had been wondering where he was!
Sorry to hear about you and BB, but I’m glad you guys can still remain friends! It looks like you had a great weekend 😀
Oh, I’m sorry you and BB ended your relationship but it truly is marvelous you’re planning to stay friends! And great you got to enjoy time with your bestie – so very necessary!
Is it embarrassing to admit I’m German but have never been to the Oktoberfest? Well, the original one is in Bavaria which is quite a journey from where I live but still 😉 …
Definitely necessary! It’s so hard to get schedules to line up, so I always treasure the time I get to spend with my friends!
Aww, no Oktoberfest? Not even once? We need to change that STAT! Break out the Google, we only have a few more weeks! Lol
Aww I’m so sorry about you and BB! But that’s awesome that you guys are remaining friends – it seems to be working out well for you! 🙂
I can’t believe Hershey’s kisses come in pumpkin spice flavour! I’ve never seen those here in Canada. Good thing my mom is going to the US later this month because I’m definitely getting her to pick up some for me!
My weekend was marvelous because I went home for Thanksgiving, spent some time with my family, and ate a delicious turkey dinner. 😀
Thanks girlie! And yes, you MUST get your hands on some of these kisses…they will change your life! So glad to hear you had a great Thanksgiving…I’m definitely anxious for ours next month…my FAVORITE holiday! 😀
Pumpkin spice kisses – get out of town – those look amazing!! So happy to hear that you and BB are still friends and the festival looks like a totally fun get together. I will keep you posted on any fun Nashville festivals coming up!
what a fun weekend. I don’t know the story behind you and BB, but I’m glad to see you two are able to remain friends. by the looks of your pictures, you can tell how much care you to share for one another.
oh your breakfast with the marshmallows looks fantastic!!
And here I was wondering how you were going to use those marshmallows..
My favourite weekend activity was thanksgiving dinner, my boyfriend and I cooked thanksgiving dinner for my family (10 people!) and we nailed it 🙂
Oh WOW!! Congratulations! I made Thanksgiving dinner for my family for the first time a couple of years ago…I was so nervous and of course had a few mishaps, but in the end, everything turned out great! Including my first turkey! Definitely a proud moment! 😀
1. I can’t believe I forgot to comment on the Lucky Charms marshmallows before. Can you PLEASE send me some? I will do anything for you.
2. I’m glad you and BB were able to remain friends. 🙂
3. I’m secretly happy you are single so I don’t feel like the only single blogger out there. Is that wrong? I mean, I don’t want you to be sad. But selfishly…
4. Love you much. I want to come visit.
1. All you had to do was ask…DONE!
2. Thank you! 🙂
3. I TOTALLY get what you mean…let’s be single and baby-less together!
4. I love you more! I DO need to visit!
5. Hugs back! 😀
So sorry to hear about the breakup girlie, but I think it takes a bigger person to try and maintain the friendship afterwards, and I truly admire that. Good luck! Love your WIAW post!!! 🙂
Thank you Lindsay! I’ve missed you girlie! How have you been?
