Tea, Please!

Morning! Crazy that it's Monday again. I hope my northeastern friends are alright and warm in all the snow. We had a lil spritz on Friday night but that's it. They called for a bunch of snow tonight, so we will have to see what actually happens throughout the day. Fingers crossed for an easy commute or a work from home day, please :)! Let's get on to how I sent my weekend, shall we?

This weekend was…

… kicked off with a sister and Mama B tea party at the Ritz Carlton

… a picture perfect pretend Downton Abbey moment.

… an afternoon filled with scones, devonshire cream, macaroons, tea sandwiches and chocolate.



… something I hope to do again with the lovely ladies in my family. We had such a wonderful time chatting about life, cheering new jobs and praying for friends.

… also filled with lots of sleep. PTL.

… another evening of fun with dough and homemade food.

… our first try making pizza dough.

… a lil bit messy.

… and doughy.

… my first try making garlic rosemary knots. #cookingonawhimisfun

… not always pretty, but sure was tasty.

… a white pizza evening. #steakpizzayesplease

… a successful adventure.

… DELICIOUS!

… my first Sunday back to church in a month. Man have I missed it.

… the weekend we finally caught up on all of our shows.

… a Sunday full of linen closet organizing, room reorganizing, purging and cleaning.

… an 8pm game where I had two goals but our team lost.

… a Sunday night doing the snow dance so I can work from home on Monday.

Linking up with these beautiful ladies  < 3

I haven't gone to a tea get-together in a while but they always have the best finger sandwiches, pastries and desserts.
