aggies and tigers and sunburns, o my! :)

what a weekend.

friday night, bub-hub and i celebrated five months of domination.
we had yummy tortellini with champagne sauce for dinner, and shared a bottle of of our favorite wine, Cakebread Cellars chardonnay. yummmmm.
after dinner, we headed over to houston's iconic "house of pies" to satisfy our sweet tooth.
bub-hub had his favorite, apple, and i had mine, cherry! both were topped with the most giant scoop of ice cream i had ever seen in my life. 
fantastic way to celebrate if i do say so myself! :)
saturday morning, bub-hub and i headed to college station to watch the Fightin Texas Aggies take on the LSU Tigers.
beautiful blue skies, nice cool breeze, great company, perfect day.
minus the aggie loss....
but it was such a great day to be in aggieland.
and no game day is complete without a little sunburn.
i promise i put sunscreen on, a lot of it. 
i guess i should have reapplied after the first two hours of standing in the direct sun.

on the drive back, we passed a roadside farmers market, so of course bub-hub, being the sweet softie that he is, stopped for me. :) 
i may or may not have wanted to buy every single mini-pumpkin in the place, but i had self control. i only bought two giant bags of grapes, strawberry preserves, and some apples.

how was your weekend?
do you ever stop at road side stands?


  1. What a fun weekend! I love roadside stands, the food just tastes better. We'll have to try that wine, anything that has the word "cake" in it has to be good, right?

  2. That was a devastating loss! Glad you enjoyed the game though. Have a great week!

  3. thanks so much for the follow :-)! I would have loved to go to the A&M/LSU game. My husband went to A&M but most of my family went to LSU. And it was a close game at least!!

  4. Until I began growing my own fruits and veggies, I'd stop at every roadside stand I could find! I still hit up our local outdoor market for things that I can't grow like carrots and strawberries. Glad you had a fun weekend!

  5. Wahoo for fun weekends with the hubs! My hubby's family is all Aggies!
    I always get sunburned on my nose, toO! The Rudolph look ain't cute on me. ;)

  6. Sounds like y'all had a fantastic weekend!!!! :) :) :)

  7. Hahaha the picture of your sunburn cracks me up! It is just so cute, and I can totally relate to sunburned noses! I keep a travel size of spf 70 in my purse just for randomly getting caught out in the sunshine when not expecting it.

  8. It's game is complete without that great sunburn!

    Glad you had a great weekend!

  9. Looks like a fun weekend!!

  10. What a fun weekend! Going to college games is the best! Sorry about your little nose! Hope it is feeling better today! ;)

  11. We don't have too many roadside stands in Philadelphia - unless it's questionable characters selling soft pretzels from a shopping cart - but when we go on vacation one of my favorite things to do is stop at roadside stands and get flowers or fruit or corn on the cob!!
